Round 7 - Sat. Aug 19 - 9.30am  Tirhatuan

 

Four seasons in one day.

 

Not a bad song by Crowded House but the conditions were atrocious for a round of golf at Tirhatuan Lakes (swamp).

 

We had sunshine, clouds, wind, rain, hail, showers, gales, micro storms and everything else in between mother nature could throw at us Saturday morning.

 

The course itself was wet, boggy, water logged and basically a low lying marsh which also had the added feature of rivers running across greens.

 

The format for this round was pairs Ambrose.

Round 6 - Sat. July 22 - 10.20am  Mt Martha

Windy, cold, freezing, icy, Antarctic like conditions greeted us at Mt Martha on Saturday 22nd July for round 6.

With fewer players than normal due to the frigid climate, those who were there persevered with some players carding very good scores and some not so good.


Nearest the pins were set on holes 3, 5, 13 and 16 for both A Grade and B Grade with Dave Newell the only player to make a green which was on the 13th.

The 4th was designated longest drive, and with the wind coming from behind the tee, it was expected to have a number of players challenging for the 20 points on offer. Sadly no one from A Grade hit the fairway and Andrew Broomhall took out B Grade with a short 72m drive.


Winners for the day were;

A Grade – Trophies

B Grade – Chef

Naga – Pirate

Overall winner with the most stableford points – Trophies (second time this year too)

Round 7 is at Tirhatuan on August 19th and hopefully the weather will be a bit kinder to us next month.

 



Round 5 - Bay View - Rosebud (Sat. 17 June)

 

Dark. Cold. Cold. Cold. Cold.

That’s how round 5 at Bayview Park in Rosebud started on Saturday 17th June.

With 10 players in attendance, not a breath of wind and a course that was in mint condition, some champagne golf was sure to be had.

 

Junior Clubs and Punctual started well with nearest the pins on the 3rd followed by Dan and Buck achieving the same on the 6th.

No-one was able to put the little white ball on the dance floor on the 11th however Trophies and Buck again scored nearest the pin on the 15th.

G-Bang won longest drive for B Grade with an epic 82m tee shot on the 18th and no-one from A Grade was able to land it on the fairway.

 

Overall winners for the day were; 

A Grade = Dan with 36 points

B Grade = Buck with 35 points

Naga = G-Bang 19 points

 

Round 6 is on July 22nd at Mt Martha with a 10.20am tee off. See you there.
