McLeod Game 15th April 2012.

McLeod Game 15th April 2012.

When I woke up on Sunday morning & couldn’t see the sun, I had a feeling we would have a few no shows for this game (I can’t blame them)
But we did still manage our biggest group of the year thus far, 13 hardy souls (some may say foolish) so a big thanks to you all.

What a shame we don’t have a course of our own for the whole day, same as the majors, then when we get a situation like the three way tie for first place that we had at McLeod, we could send the three back down the 18th for a sudden death play-off.

But alas we do not have that facility so we have to resort to the old count back, which is a shame when all three battled so hard in the varying conditions throughout the morning.

Here are the results for McLeod:

1st place on 38pts – Dan Williams
2nd place on 38pts – David Coster
3rd place on 38pts – Ken Greedy

NTP on the 16th – Ken Greedy
NTP on the 6th – Dan Williams
Men’s L/D – Ken Greedy
Ladies L/D – Janine Walker

Next game is at Windaroo on the 20th of May.
Let’s hope for good weather and a big crowd as those who missed out must be eager for a game.
I’m already excited!

Golf: 15 April at McLeod Country Club

Hello everyone

A great day of golf at Mt Warren Park, with some surprising results, but well done to those on the podium at the end of the day. I’m sure everyone is looking forward to sunny, and hopefully dry, day for the next round of the 2012 season. This round will be held at McLeod Country Club on Sunday 15 April, arrival at 7.15am for tee-off at 7.30am (I think that means we can sleep in a bit!

The address is 59 Gertrude-McLeod Crescent, Mt Ommaney. The number for the Pro-shop is 3376 3922 if you wish to book a cart.

Directions from Centenary Highway (coming from the north first) are, enter the M5 Western Motorway (this is at the Milton Road roundabout) and proceed approximately 9 kms heading south. Take the Mt Ommaney/Sinnamon Park exit on left. At the roundabout (at the top of the exit) take the 3rd exit onto Dandenong Road. Keep veering left to stay on Dandenong Road and proceed about 1.5 kms. Then turn right into Horizon Drive. Follow this about 700m to Gertrude McLeod Crescent. Once in the Crescent, the Club is on the right after about 600m. From Ipswich Road (heading north) enter the M5 Centenary Mwy and proceed north about 2.5kms. Take the Sumners Road exit heading toward Middle Park/Darra. At the roundabout (at the top of the exit) take the first exit to stay on Sumners Road. After 400m turn right onto Dandenong Road and proceed for about 450m. Turn left onto Horizon Drive. The remaining directions are the same as above.

Please email (or call) as soon as possible if you are attending the game so I can organise numbers with McLeod.

Mt Warren Park game 18th March 2012

Another group of 12 turned out for Mt Warren game, thank you to all those for turning up.
I’m just going to give you the results because as you may or maybe didn’t notice I couldn’t attend this game.
From what I’m told Peter Johnston had a very good game & judging by the scores I’ve seen the rest of the field may have gone pretty well also.
Congrats to you all, I hope the weather was kind to you.
[Ian's comment: "The weather looked terrible leading up to the day but turned out to be quite a pleasant day. Not much run, particularly if you were in the rough! Some very good scoring considering the conditions and Peter's score was remarkable.]

Here are the results for Mt Warren Park:

1st place on 42pts – Peter Johnston
2nd place on 39pts – Howard Ward
3rd place on 38pts – Rodney Topor

NTP on the 16th – Peter Johnston
NTP on the 9thth – Rodney Topor
Men’s L/D – Ian Smith
Ladies L/D – not taken

Next game is at McLeod on the 15th of April.
I’ll be back for this game, so you’ll all be playing for second place as I’ve been spending time in the golf simulator aboard the QM2 cruise ship on my much deserved holiday.
