Guide Dogs Day Stableford
As usual a very large field turned out for our ever-popular annual Guide Dogs For The Blind Charity Day Stableford event. It was great to see our friends from the Charity in attendance again and a well supported raffle created over $600 for this very worthwhile cause. One of our visitors, Leesa Ison from Monto, took out Division 1 with 39 points – thanks to 21 points on the front 9 – one ahead of runner-up Margaret King. In Division 2 Madelaine Bragg, with the best score of the day, 39 points, edged out one of our newer members Rhonda Creeger by 2.
Committee News (July 2019)
The Ladies Classic is being held on the 13th-16th October this year with a celebration dinner on the 14th. Entry forms will be available on Monday the 29th of July. The following Open Days are coming soon with entry forms available on the Ladies Notice Board – Burrum (14th July), Coral Cove (13th-14th July), Bundaberg (18th Aug) and ISIS (11th Aug). The Committee are having on-going discussions regarding the following issues :- unfilled divots on the course, the new Club shirts, the 6th hole drop zone, bare patches on the 16th hole, carters driving off the path on the 11th and restricting to 2 carts per group to lessen wear on the course. If you have constructive opinions on any of these matters, please speak to a Committee member. Congratulations to Michelle Marsden and Jan Thomas who have been selected in the Wide Bay team for the QLD Mid-Amateur Championships and the QLD Senior Women’s Championships at Maroochy River.
Thursday 15th August Stroke
There were some excellent scores recorded for our Thursday stroke event and some ups and downs as well. Shooting a 67 Nett would, in most cases ensure you a win, but Leanne Spruce only managed runners up in Division 1 on countback thanks to an equally excellent round by Bernie Fitzgerald, including a birdie on the 14th. In Division 2 Jan Fisher (70) pipped one of our visitors on countback however our visitors were still well represented as Rosalie Derrick from Nelson Bay took out Division 3 with a Nett 70. Trick shot of the day went to Ann Johnson who found herself in a precarious position on the 13th hole. I’m reliably informed Ann chipped up to the flag and one putted. Luckily the plovers weren’t nesting there this year!! The ups and down of golf were illustrated by Allison Jackson; after a great tee shot on the 5th for a tap-in birdie which nearly netted her a hole-in-one Allison then took 5 times as many shots (10) to complete the next hole, the 6th. Allison can take some comfort in that it wasn’t the highest score registered for a single hole in the competition. That’s why we play this game 🙂
August Monthly Medal (Saturday)
August Monthly Medal (Thursday)
Well, I’d certainly like to know what Allison Jackson has been having for breakfast recently. Picking up her 3rd winners prize in less than a fortnight Allison is now under 20 handicap and closing in on hubby Rory fast. Allison shaded the Div 1 Thursday Monthly Medal on countback from Di Collins with the help of birdies on the 10th and the 18th. In Division 2 Mary Tatnell posted a very good Nett 70 to edge out Geraldine Collins by 2. Geraldine has been runner up a few times recently. Perhaps it is your turn next Geraldine, keep at it. The least putts, for the 3rd time in recent months was Del Hartfiel with 25. Del is obviously an extremely good putter or her chipping is so good she leaves herself with plenty of tap ins. Well done to all of you, and can someone send the drug tester round to Allisons 🙂
Turtle Challenge Round 2
Runaway winners in the 2 Round Turtle Challenge were last week’s leaders Fiona Weeks and Margaret King with a total, for the 2 rounds, of 151 – pretty impressive. They won by a huge 11 points from runners up Judy Grills and Barb Brabon on 140. Daily winners were the lovely Mary Price and her partner Ann Johnson with 78 points (18 points better than last week). Good to see you back winning again Mary. Well done to the 23 pairs who completed both rounds and a special mention to Chris Redshaw who, somehow, managed to have 3 partners on both days. Sisters didnt do it again this year, Carolyn and Pat relinquished their title with a pretty ordinary second round of 60. You’re reminding me of the England cricket team girls 🙂 Making her debut as photographer this week was new Committee member Colleen Atherton – nice photos Colleen!
Ladies Championships 2019 Round 4
Well it is all over for another year and we have 3 new Club Champions to celebrate. In A Grade Isabella Artcheua won by a massive 25 shots from Michelle Marsden. In B Grade Ros Savidge came from nowhere to pass the round 3 leaders and win by 5 from Robyn Edgar, with overnight leader Carolyn suffering from nerves. In C Grade it was all wrapped up after three rounds really with Leone “The Bullet” Collins easing home by 22 shots from Lady Pen. The Nett results were not quite as straight forward, and after some scores being adjusted due to administrative issues, there had to be changes to the winners announced at the Presentation. A Grade Nett winner was last year’s club champion Joanie Milton on 298 pipping Julie Burton by 2. In B Grade Jill Serra sneaked home by the narrowest of margins to edge out Sallie Wake by 1, both coming from behind to pass the overnight leaders. In C Grade Shirley Leacy, playing her first championships won with 310 from another championship debutant Julie Kuorikoski. Congratulations to all the ladies who played out the 4 rounds, that in itself it a great achievement. I bet you all cant wait for next year !!!! The Gross and Nett results are available here.
Round 4 – The Stories Of The Day
If you get yourself in trouble by plugging in the face of a bunker then take a leaf out of Jill’s book and play a fantastic shot like this.
One of the shots of the day from Lady Pen. My money was on a duff into the bunker but you proved me wrong. I wont mention the 3-putt from 5 metres that followed 🙂
Here’s one for the record books, a photo of Isabella in the trees on the 13th hole!!! Perhaps she needs lessons from Leone “Bullet straight” Collins.
That is a beautiful swing Alison, if only we all had a brother-in-law who was a golf professional 🙂
Quick girls get a move on, we better run to the next tee before Pat sees us and nags us about slow play again.
Oh dear Margaret where did it all go wrong today? Well Carolyn, you’ve got to stop being such a nervous Nellie and look on the bright side.
No Marg is not trying to hide from the camera. She is playing a lovely bunker shot out of the trap on the 3rd hole. Our ladies really impressed out of the bunkers today.
A great chip over the bunker on the 8th hole Ros, that’s why you are B Grade Champ. An awful lot of players would have plonked that into the bunker.
Caught on camera, Julie’s only par of the day. A beautiful 10 metre tap-in par putt followed the tee shot and chip. Well done Julie.
Who said our girls do not know how to play bunker shots ? Julie shows the perfect splash shot to within a couple of metres of the flag on the 1st hole.
Your best drive of the day Sal and on the 1st too. It is a pity about the 9 shots it then took you to get in the hole. Still, it could only get better from there.
Oooops. I wish I could chip like Ros.
