Week ending 27th July 2013 (Vets)


Well done to all players who turned up and played in very wet conditions underfoot.  Let’s hope we see some sunshine this coming week and the coarse starts to dry up.

The wet conditions didn’t seem to trouble our President, Kevin Crundall and his playing partner John Kelly, as they carded a very impressive 51 points.

Coming up is a Host Day at Gympie on Monday the 19th of August.  We won’t be supplying a bus, so I suggest we car pool.  Let me know if you require a ride.

RESULTS FROM 24th July 2013

Event: 4BBB Stableford

Thanks to our prize donor Smallacombe Building Company.  The multi-store gift cards are proving popular and provide something different.

It was great to have a couple of visitors, Kevin Donoghue and Kevin East, taking advantage of our beautiful weather – well it was a cloudless, sunny day!

Congratulations to the winners, Kevin and John, a couple of our early starters.  There was a tongue in cheek suggestion that they might have had more favorable conditions than later groups.
