Week Ending 21st January 2017

---

Hi reader,

On Monday a large field of 100 played in very trying conditions at Pelican Waters with its' great couch fairways, slick undulating greens and lots of bunkers, although not as many as there used to be.  Apparently, 22 bunkers have been removed still leaving more than enough trouble.  George Hall 37 (6th, A Grade) and Bob Read 38 (4th, C Grade) were our best performed.

Wednesday saw another hot and humid day but it didn't phase Andrew Dick 44, Kerry Martin 43 and Bob Atkin 41taking out their respective Grades with excellent rounds.

Congratulations to Graeme Meade for an Eagle on the 5thGraeme hit a great drive, and then an even better approach shot but when we got to the green... no ball..a mystery!  After searching the surrounds for a while, Jim Turnbull wisely thought to look in the hole.  The moral of the story, look in the obvious place first!  The sequel to the story - Jim claimed some of the credit for Graeme's Eagle.

Next Wednesday is an 8:00 am shotgun start followed by a sausage sizzle.

If you are interested in being a co-sponsor with the Cooroy RSL Sub Branch on Wednesday, 19th April 2017, our ANZAC remembrance day, please speak to Errol Radley.  It is a 4 Man Ambrose with an 8:00 am shotgun start followed by a sausage sizzle.
