Golf Report

Friday, June 01, 2018

With winter upon us unpredictable weather seems to be the game lately but with last Saturday being a fine but with gusty westerly winds made for a challenging time on the Golf Course.  The afternoon players had slight advantage over the morning players judging by the cards that came in but all in all made for another good day on course.  In comparison, Wednesday's weather was picture perfect and no excuses for bad golf but, how often it happens, the golf was not up to the standard of the weather.

Today we have Rd 6 of the “Olive Cafe” Monthly Medal & Lisner Trophy with bonus points for the “Olive Cup". Once again a big thanks to Naomi & Johanna for their generous sponsorship.

Competition Results:

A 4 BBB Stableford, the play of the day last Saturday, produced some good scores considering the windy conditions.  The team of Brad Tierney and Kerry Robertson were the winners on the day with 46 pt's from Denis Smith & Dave McCowan 43 pt's on a c/b to Caroline Miratana & Matt Kelly in 3rd place.

The Pro-Pin 4th went to Shane Evans [650cm], the All-In 9/18th Fred Howe [700cm], the Ladies 2nd shot to 6/15th [not struck] & the Men's 2nd shot to 1/10th Shane Evans [125cm].

The "Island Plumbing & Gas” Putt Off con

tinues to grow and today will be worth $165.

Wednesday's golf, being a fine sunny day with very little wind one would have expected some good scores, but not the case.  Jess Tierney turned in the only honest card winning the day with 36 pt's from Paul [Shorty] Kiernan next on a c/b to Steve Foster both on 34 pt's. Ngaire Mossman had the best in the Ladies with 33 pt's.  The Pro-Pin 4th went to Eric Sweeney [137cm].

Social Golf News:

Veteran's golf last Tuesday attracted the normal golfing tragics and a fine day did not attract any more than the norm so if you are a keen golfer and have a spare Tuesday afternoon available from 3 pm come down and enjoy the friendship.  Tony Scicluna won the day with 16 pt's on a c/b to Fred Howe but we were all winners with the comradeship of the day.

Our chook runners enjoyed another pleasant afternoon on the course and took full advantage of the Golf Club being the perfect spot to spend Friday afternoon.  Dennis Sterling took out first place in the Norfolk Island Mechanical Chook Run, claiming the first of the highly sought after chooks!  Thanks must go to Dave Jeffreys and the Norfolk Island Mechanical Team for their continued sponsorship of the Chook Run.  This is a very social comp and everyone is welcome to join in (you don’t need an official handicap).  With the winter comp being only 7 holes, it’s a great time to get started, so come and give it a try!

Once again we also had a good field of juniors taking to the course for the junior choc run.  It was a great welcome back to golf for Abby Dixon who took out first place.   Congratulations Abby!  Our juniors are really getting into the swing and improving every week.  Thanks once again to our parent helpers last week! 

A reminder to our members that if you can assist with the junior comp occasionally (it only takes about an hour), please put your name on the roster (which is on the noticeboard).  This will assist in our junior comp continuing to grow, and in the juniors learning etiquette and more about the game of golf.   A further reminder that the junior comp is now teeing off at 3.30pm for the winter months, players need to be registered in the Pro Shop 15 minutes before tee off please.
