McLeod Golf Club - 16/3/2014

A strong 13 players showed up for the glorious weather and found a golf course in very good condition. Probably the best I've seen it ...but, like most turf in SEQ, needing some water.

Interesting scorecards they use and thanks to Karen for ensuring the ladies had the appropriate cards and indexes. With all those columns it was easy to get confused.

Welcome aboard to new member Nigel Stork - who promptly ran off with the Long Drive!

Some interesting results given our use of the new slope handicap system and McLeod being considered a hard course. Most players received 3 extra shots - except poor Troy and I who only received 1! [I can hear the tiny violins playing from here...:-)]

Here are the results:

1st place - Dave Coster [47pts] [Yes - he should be embarrassed].
2nd place - Regan Dent [41pts] ...hang on, he's not eligible until his 3rd
real 2nd place - Ian Smith [40pts]
3rd place - Jane Hughes [38pts] ..welcome back Jane.

Long drive ladies [and longest overall!] - Karen Greedy
Long drive men - Nigel Stork
NTP 6th - Rodney Topor
NTP 16th - Ian Smith

Hopefully the real Captain will be back for the next event which is "The Hills - Jimboomba" on 13/4. This will also be our AGM. So if you want to make sure you aren't voted into a position...make sure you are there!

President, acting-Captain, 2nd place getter on technicality.
