Last Tuesday week the Shylie Rymill Foursomes were played out in absolutely fantastic conditions, unlike the programmed day earlier.Last Tuesday week the Shylie Rymill Foursomes were played out in absolutely fantastic conditions, unlike the programmed day earlier.
The match committee was wise in rescheduling the event as it turned out.
The winners and runners-up only had a half stroke separating the two.
Captain Di Thorpe and partner in crime vice captain Glenda Davies were the successful duo to take the honours with a nett 73 result.
Runners-up were Annette Cotter and Maree Farr, only that half stroke away and well pleased with their score of 731/2.
Next in line were Thelma Murray and Colleen Howell on nett 79.
As this is a state event, the top score through-out the vast golfing communities will receive an engraved “silver spoon” as a trophy.
On Thursday, ladies enjoyed a stableford event.
Nick from Whyalla Jewellers provided sponsorship for the day, which is always much appreciated.
Glenda Davies, fresh from her recent success, hit out strongly in div 1 to almost play to her handicap, scoring 35 stableford points and win top billing.
Dianne Thorpe was runner-up with 31 points to hold out Colleen Howell and Jean Brown on a countback.
Division 2 saw Annette Cotter score well to amass 36 stableford points and take the honours.
Cotter also had played well in the Shylie Rymill and her form continued.
Runner-up was Glenda Clayton with 32 stableford, her best round for some time.
Both runners-up received a voucher from Greg Boston from Car Bath, to whom we thank.
Golfers in the ball count down included Colleen Howell with 31 points, so too Jean Brown, Val Callaghan 30 points and Audrey Discombe 29 points.
The McLeod’s Motor Company nearest the pin on the 7th saw Jean Brown 5.58 metres away and Gail Harris 10.42 metres, each win an award.
On the 18th it was Val Callahan to win for the div 1 section and Thelma Murray ever so close (just 0.21cms) from the flag (second shot) the nearest in div 2.
Lucky ball raffle recipients were Annette Cotter and Dianne Thorpe.
The only turkey (chip-in) that was recorded for the day was by Gail Harris on the 11th.
It is the duty of every golfer, whether club member or social player, to fill in divots with sand to keep the fairways in tip top condition.
Replacing divots is not the way to go, as this grass just dies.
Plug marks on the greens also need to be addressed with repairs made with a lifter.
Patrons who hire golf motorised buggies are reminded to adhere to the sticker on the windscreens: DO NOT TAKE BUGGY OFF FAIRWAYS.
This is club policy to protect not only the cart from tyre and paint damage etc, but also to preserve the undergrowth, thus keeping the terrain from literally blowing away.
The club policy also applies to privately owned carts.
The fairways are all looking magnificent at the moment.
However the course manager Gary Branford can always use assistance.
Let Gary know if you have a couple of hours to spare at any time, he will certainly welcome all offers.
Volunteers are a vital part of our golf club to keep fees for all at a manageable level.
