Golf Report


It was a tail of two tee offs last Saturday with morning players definitely having the pick of the conditions enduring fine sunny weather in contrast to the pm players who experienced showery conditions all afternoon. After speaking of the delights of the weather gods lately they totally disrupted the weekends play. But with fine weather predicted this weekend the golf course should be in mint condition.


We welcomed our new Club Operations Supervisor, Elise McCaskie, last Saturday and Elise is excited to join our team. Please introduce yourself and welcome Elise when you are next at the Club. 


Competition Results:

That ever so popular golf event,  V's Par, attracted a very good field but the weather decided the outcome and the few withdrawals.  The morning players had the pick of the weather with Lisle Snell winning the day with +5 from Jared Magri +3 and one pm player, Geoff Parslow coming in 3rd with +2.  Tanya Smith had the best in the Ladies with -1.


The Pro-Pin 4th went to Lisle Snell [232cm], the All-In 9/18th Lisle Snell [343cm], the Ladies 2nd shot to 6/15th Pat McCoy [1200cm] & the Men's 2nd shot to 1/10th [not struck].


The "Island Plumbing & Gas" Putt Off continues on and up and today will be worth $135.


A perfect afternoon for Wednesday's golf, a complete contrast to Saturday afternoon and a good field to enjoy the conditions.  An Individual Stableford event, Ben Richards made good use of the weather with a very good 42 pt's from Chris Magri 40 pt's and Cameron Feldman in 3rd on 39 pt's.  The reliable Pat McCoy had the best in the Ladies with 35 pt’s from Ngaire Mossman 30 pt's.  The Pro-Pin 4th went to Jess Tierney [550cm].


Social Golf News:

Veteran's golf had the normal golf tragics enjoying the weather and the company with visitor Bruce Brideoake having the best result with 17 pt's.  So much more is solved about our bad shots over a couple of refreshing beers.


Our Norfolk Island Mechanical Chook Run attracted another good field and it was a stunning afternoon on the verandah for those taking advantage of a Friday afternoon drink. 


One of our new junior golfers, only recently joining the Junior Choc Run, George Peay took out first place on Friday – congratulations George!  Once again we had a good field of juniors taking to the course.  Special thanks to Robyn Lockhart who walked around with our juniors sharing her knowledge of the golf course, some course etiquette and ensuring our little golfers are happy and safe.

Golf Report


The weather Gods having been providing us with great golfing weather again after a spell of inclement weather and the Golf Course has responded giving us some excellent conditions to remove any excuses for bad golf.  But along comes the “Olive Cafe” Monthly Medal again and the players’ golf did not match the perfect conditions.  At least the visitors to the Golf Club have a panoramic view from the veranda whilst enjoying a healthy lunch or refreshing drink.


Another 'oops' from the results of the Pennants Matchplay a couple of weeks ago.  I failed to mention one member of the winning team, Cascade. So here it goes again. Dave Magri [Capt.], Jared Magri, Arty Keeping, Shane Evans, Jason McCoy, Edie Christian, Janet Reed & Stephen [Cooky] Gardiner. Sorry Cooky.


Competition Results:

 The " Olive Cafe " Monthly Medal & Lisner Trophy Rd 5, with bonus pt's to the "Olive Cup", upon us again and a big thanks once again to Naomi & Johanna for their continuing sponsorship. And with the perfect conditions we were all  expecting some great scores but only Pat McCoy in the Ladies division showed us how and won the day with a fine 67 nett claiming the  "Lisner Trophy" from Robyn Lockhart with 74 nett & Honi Wilson 76 nett.  Pat also took out The Olive Café Monthly Medal recording the best overall nett score of the day.  Congratulations Pat!  In the Men’s Monthly Medal, 5 Men came in with 74 nett with Eric Hutchinson take the honours, on a c/b to Tony Scicluna, on a c/b to Chris Magri, on a c/b to Jess Tierney, on a c/b to Eric Sweeney.


The Pro-Pin 4th went to Barley Christian [87cm], the All-In 9/18th Caroline Miratana [950cm], the Ladies 2nd shot to 6/15th Belinda Grube [ 593cm] & the Men's 2nd shot to 1/10th Kim Davies [331cm].


The "Island Plumbing & Gas" Putt Off remains intact and today will be worth $120.


Wednesday's golf, an Individual Stableford, just managed to finish before dusk as the winter days get shorter. Ngaire Mossman had the best in the Ladies with 34 pt's from Caroline Miratana 31 pt's and Pat McCoy 30 pt's.  Jess Tierney won the Men's with 40 pt's from Chris Magri 37 pt's and Dave McCowan 36 pt's.  The Pro - Pin 4th was not struck.


Social Golf News:

Our regular Tuesday vets enjoyed a quiet afternoon on the course followed by an enjoyable post-game drink, which solves all the problems…golf and otherwise!  Tuesday is always a great afternoon to escape for a social mid-week game and some good company.  


The Norfolk Island Mechanical Chook Run attracted a good field once again on Friday with everyone enjoying the social 7 holes for winter.  Results for the last two weeks saw Jesse Schmitz claim the first chook on Friday 27th April and Jared Magri take out top spot last week. 


Jack Richards and Nate Christian-Bailey have taken the top spot in the junior choc run over the last two weeks with some good competition amongst our juniors over their new 4 hole course.  


What's on this Week: 

Today's golf, a V's Par event, is always an interesting challenge to golfers and good talking point afterwards.  Tee off times are 8.30am & 12.30pm and players are asked to have their cards into the match committee no later than 15 mins prior to tee off.  Any visiting golfers with an official club handicap are always welcome to come down and play.

Golf Report


Firstly a big 'oops' for leaving out the winners of last Sunday's prestigious “NIGC Pennants Match Play" team that won the day.  If you were able to observe from the photograph printed in last week's paper, they were the winning team Cascade, taking out the title for the first time. So here it is the team of Dave Magri, Jared Magri, Jason McCoy, Arty Keeping, Shane Evans, Edie Christian & Janet Reed. Congratulations all for an enjoyable and competitive day.


Today we have another important event, the “Olive Cafe” Monthly Medal & Lisner Trophy with bonus pt's toward the 2018 “Olive Cup". Once again we thank Naomi & Johanna for their generous sponsorship which gives our members a challenge going forward for the year.  Unfortunately Naomi cannot participate due to an injury.


The Clubrooms remain busy during the day with the many visitors enjoying a game of golf and /or our healthy lunch menu and the panoramic view from our veranda.


Competition Results:

Last Saturday's Golf event was the annual “Port for Mort" Day, an Individual Stableford, a memorial day for the late Mort Rutledge and we thank Kim Davies for organising the considerable bottles of Port we enjoyed on the 2nd & 19th tee.  Stephen [Cooky] Gardiner won the day with 40 pt's from Shane Evans 37 pt's and Dave McCowan 36 pt's on a c/b from Eric Hutchinson & Matt Kelly.


Belinda Grube had the best of the Ladies with 38 pt's from Caroline Miratana 33 pt's on a c/b to Kerry Robertson in 3rd place.


Tony Scicluna claimed the Pro-Pin 4th [145cm], the All In 9/18th Shane Evans [300cm], the Ladies 2nd shot to 6/15th [not struck] and the Men's 2nd shot to 1/10th Cooky Gardiner [238cm].


The “Island Plumbing & Gas" Putt Off maintains it upward climb and today will be worth $105.


Wednesday's golf, another Individual Stableford but with bonus pt's toward the "2 Drips” Ansbury Christian Cup.  Kim Davies showed a return to form to take the honours with a very good 43 pt's from Eric Hutchinson 34 pt's on a c/b from Geoff Parslow.  The Pro-Pin 4th went to Bruce Lockhart [420cm].


Social Golf News:

A small field this week, but as usual an enjoyable afternoon of golf.  Tony Scicluna won the day again with 17 pt's.  The rest were a long way behind [in points only] and would prefer not to be mentioned.  We all blamed the wind. There is always next week.


The Norfolk Island Mechanical Chook Run and the Junior Choc Run both moved to the winter comp, with the chook run reducing the 7 holes and the juniors altering their four hole course to be played over the first and second holes.  The transition was smooth sailing; however the slightly longer junior course resulted in a later finish for our juniors, so we will shorten their course slightly moving forward.  Despite this, a change and new challenge will be great for our future golfers. 


At the time of going to print the results weren’t available, therefore we will report the winners in next week’s golf report.


What's on this Week:

Today's golf is Rd 5 of the “Olive Cafe" Monthly Medal & Lisner Trophy with double points toward the 2018 "Olive Cup".  Tee off times are 8.30am & 12.30pm and as always players are asked to have their cards into the match committee no later than 15 mins prior to tee off.  Any visiting golfers with an official club handicap are always welcome to come down and play.


Tuesday......    Veteran's Golf -   9 holes -   3 pm

Wednesday  ...  Individual Stableford -    1pm

Friday....   N I Mechanical   Chook Run - very social 7 holes -   3pm

                     Junior Choc Run    -   4 Junior Holes   -     4pm
