Summer is certainly with us now, but it did not deter 55 hardy Veteran golfers getting out and enjoying the morning. The course came off second best to a number of players this, none more so than our winner Bob Sherwood who had an excellent round scoring 25pts and the proud owner of a new Handicap next week. For his effort Bob chose a Club Voucher for his prize, which he can collect from the office at his leisure. In second place with a score that would normally go close to winning came John Peberdy on 23pts. Then in third place with 22pts was Grant Smith. We then had Noel Palmer on 21pts, followed by John Frame with 20pts. Next with 19pts were Rob Black, Ron Balderston & John Clare. Following with 18pts came Ian Trickett, Peter Coombes, Stephen Bright, Tony Gray & Stuart Johns. Then with 17pts were Ren Chen, John Clery, John Ramsey & Paul McDougall. From there we had quite a number of players with 16pts being, Dick Sherwood, Brian Haworth, Andrew Horton, Noel Dunford, Wayne Chillingworth, Lee Charlesworth, Lars Unger & Gordon Way. Finally after a number of count backs a ball was awarded to one lucky player with 15pts, being Frank Henry.  Overall our prizes and ball list went down 26 places which gave almost half the field (except me) the opportunity to win a ball.

Nearest the Pin on the 16th hole was won by Lee Charlesworth, with a great shot to just 85cm from the pin. Incidentally, he did get the putt for a birdie and 4 pts.

Don’t Forget – Revised RULES OF GOLF are now in force. It is worth making note of this as on Friday I saw a couple of players dropping the ball, but from shoulder height. The new rule states – the ball is to be dropped from “knee” height”. I know old habits die hard, as I nearly did it myself. I still have a few copies of the précis of the main changes put out by Golf Australia, or go to to see the changes in detail.

This coming Friday, we have our normal 9 hole competition hitting off from the 1st hole, during the time slots from 7.00 – 9.00am. We look forward to seeing you on the course, scoring will be interesting next week as players generally don’t get as many shots at their disposal as is the case on the back nine. After your round, we look forward to seeing you in the Club to take some refreshment and stay for the presentations, which only takes a few minutes.
