It was a cool sunny morning on Wednesday September 11 for a Strokeplay Championship qualifying round, but not long after everyone had teed off, there was some cloud cover, and wind came up, gaining strength as the day progressed. Many potentially good scores were ruined when trying to putt on some greens where pin placements could only be described as extremely challenging.
Nett haggle results: Jacquie Bain 72; Sue White , Marie Rickard 73; Dot Ramsey, Avon Gordon 74; Pat Hay, Jenny Tubman 75; Helen Baynes, Adele Gunning, Carol Leary 76; Kaylene Croker 77; June O’Reilly, Wendy Matutinovich, Diane Lewis 78.
Hidden Holes: Jenny Tubman.

Veterans’ and Nine hole golf
No formal play this week due to bad weather. However, the first round match between Vets John Saunders and Gyan Prole was a marathon. Beginning their match on Monday September 2, neither player intended to give in without a battle. After 21 holes they were still all square, when they ran out of time. A mutual decision was made to continue from where they left off at a later date.
On Monday September 9, the match continued in unpleasant weather, squaring the 22nd hole, and at last these two very evenly matched players managed to get a result with John winning on the 23rd hole. It was a fantastic match, well played.
It is very noticeable that people are leaving things behind on the course such as banana skins, orange peels, tissues, wrappers, cigarette butts, cans, bottles and bottle tops. Don’t be a litter bug … use the rubbish bins, give the greens staff a break and keep our course tidy.
