Week Ending 7th January 2017


Hi reader,

Wednesday's final week of the Holiday Season Stableford reminded me of the story of two veteran golfers out on the golf course watching two fisherman on a nearby river and commenting "look at those idiots fishing in the rain".  

Despite the rain (or perhaps more aptly, in spite of the rain) 37 players ventured onto the course although not all completed 18 holes.  Greg Michael, Jason Egan and Nick Kostalas won their respective Grades with Jason Egan taking out the aggregate prize with 117 points - congratulations Jason.

Welcome back to Stuart WrightStuart retired in the middle of 2015 with shoulder problems but after some dedicated rehabilitation is back playing again.  Judging by Stuart's form on Wednesday he is in for a good year.

Welcome back also to past Vets Vice Captain, Steve Howes, who has returned from Harvey Bay to live locally.

We have changed the format for our 2017 Wednesday NTP competitions to a rotation system to add variety and interest on game day so please check the whiteboard each Wednesday's for NTP details before heading out to play.

We have a record field of 45 heading to Pelican Waters in a couple of weeks.  Nominations close on 9th January 2017.

Next Wednesday is our 2017 Opening Day and Monthly Medal.  It is an 8:00am shotgun start.
