Men’s Saturday Comp 12th June

Good field of 84 players for a team event (4BBB Stableford) we were extremely lucky with a great day for golf. We saw a great number of birdies for the day, so we done to each of the players.

As the Captain advised on the day there was a hiccup with the green staff re the white tees and this situation will be sorted out. Whilst the handicaps were for the white tees and we played off blues, this was not an event where your handicap was affected.

We noticed that a number of players scored their card for the full round, with this event we only take the best score for the team and if you are unable to beat your partner’s score then pick up.

Congratulations to our winners on the day;

Joke of the Day

Dear Abby,

I’ve never written to you before, but I really need your advice. I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. The usual signs. Phone rings but if I answer, the caller hangs up. My wife has been going out with “the girls” a lot recently although when I ask their names she always says, “Just some friends from work, you don’t know them.”

I always try to stay awake to look out for her coming home, but I usually fall asleep. Anyway, I have never approached the subject with my wife. I think deep down I just didn’t want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her. Around midnight, I decided to hide in the garage behind my golf clubs so I could get a good view of the whole street when she arrived home from a night out with “the girls”.

It was at that moment, crouching behind my clubs, that I noticed that the graphite shaft on my driver appeared to have a hairline crack right by the club head.

Is this something I can fix myself or should I take it back to the pro shop where I bought it?

Joke of the Day

Two friends were playing golf one day. They decided that they would adhere strictly to the rules with no improving their lie.
After a few holes, one guy’s ball landed on a cart path. As he reached down to pick up his ball to get relief, his friend said, “We agreed that we would not improve our lie.”
No matter how much the first fellow tried to explain that he was entitled to this relief, the second fellow would not allow it. So the man went to the cart to get a club.
As he stood over the ball he took a few practice swings, each time scraping the club on the pavement, taking out big chunks of blacktop and sending out lots of sparks!
Finally, after several practice swings he took his shot. The ball took off and landed on the green about 6 feet from the pin.
“Great shot!” his friend exclaimed. “What club did you use?”
“YOUR 7-iron!” he replied.

Joke for the Day

Mac was an avid golfer his entire life.

As he got into his sixties, his eyes started to fail him. He didn’t want to give the game up, so he went to see the family eye doctor.

The doctor said there wasn’t much he could do, but he knew of a 97-year-old man who still had perfect sight, could see like an eagle. The doctor gave Mac the old man’s name and suggested that he could use him to watch where he hit his golf ball.

Mac, of course, didn’t believe the doctor. The old guy was almost a century old, but could see like an eagle!

Well Mac made arrangements to bring Wilbur golfing.

On the first tee, Mac drove his ball about 200 yards, but of course, he couldn’t see where it went.

He asks Wilbur, “Did you see my shot?”

To which Wilbur replied, “Sure did.”

Mac asked, “Where did it go? “

Wilbur replied, “I forget!”

Joke of the Day

A golfer hit his ball into a ravine.

His buddies heard `whack, whack, whack’ on and on, until finally he got the ball out.
His buddy asked, “How many strokes did it take you to get out of there?”

He said, “Three”.
But his buddy said, “I heard seven.”

His reply was, “Four of them were echoes.”

Joke of the Day

Bob was trying desperately to get in 18 on a soon-to-be stormy day.

He was playing the round of his life, but as the weather grew worse, his swing on the 15th tee was awkward, resulting in a hooked drive into the trees.

His lie was a good one, but right next to a tree. He quickly approached his ball, set himself up, and right as he took the club to the top, lighting struck down from the sky catching his steel shafted 5 iron.

His friends hurried over to see that there was a large crater in the ground and no site of Bob or his clubs. He was gone.

When he reached the pearly gates, St. Peter said, “Son, we are sorry to have taken you at such an early age, however, because you love the game so much, and you had the round of your life going, we decided to bring your clubs that you love so dearly so that you may play all the courses of heaven which are more incredible
than any course you have ever played.”

The man started crying instantly, to which St. Peter replied, “I know, you have left behind many loved ones.”

Bob said, “No, that’s not it.”

“Yes my son, you also had an unbelievable life and a great career,” St. Peter said.

“No, that’s not it either,” sobbed Bob.

St. Peter was stumped, “Well then, what could make you so unhappy, that you would cry like a three year old girl?”

Bob looked up as the tears flooded from his eyes and said, “I think I left my wedge back on the 14th green.”

We received a couple of suggestions from the members regarding playing games off the whites following last Saturday’s rain effected day ,we have taken notice we will be introducing games off the white tees on alternate Saturday’s.

Joke of the Week

Arnold Palmer is playing in a big tournament and comes to a 235-yard par-3.

After some deliberation, he takes out his 3 iron and sails the ball 20 feet over the pin and backs it up to within 3 feet of the pin.

A fan in the crowd said “Mr. Palmer, how do you make a 3 iron back up like that?”

Mr. Palmer replied, “Do you own a 3 iron?”
The fan said, “Yes, sir I do.”

“How far do you hit it?” said Palmer.
About 160 yards was his reply.

Palmer calmly said, “What the hell do you want it to back up for?

Men’s Golf Saturday 1st May

Who would have thought we would be able to play 18 holes without rain, there was not many of the members with only 31 players being confident/brave enough for the day. The course was in pretty good condition with carts being allowed.  It was also good to see a number of members who played to stay around for a drink and some hot chips.

Now to the golf results, with the large number of withdrawals it was decided to postpone the Monthly Medal to next week and we played a single stableford off the whites for the day (non handicapped), with the field only being 31 players we only had one division for the day and only one NTP on the 12th.

Congratulations to our winner on the day;

Al Hubbard (3) with 41 points on countback

Runner Up was Phil Coles (14) with also 41 points on another countback from Jimmy Wood

Well done to those 3 players who all had a great round.

Joke of the Day

A duffer hits a wicked slice off the tee that ricocheted through the trees and onto the next fairway, narrowly missing another golfer.

When he got to his ball, he was greeted by the unintentional target, who angrily told him of the near miss.

“I’m very sorry” the errant golfer said, “I didn’t have time to holler fore”.

“That’s funny” the man replied,” you had plenty time to holler SXXT”.

Men’s Golf Saturday 24th April

Joke of the Day

A foursome of hackers teed off at 10 am every Saturday and all were usually there well before tee time. This Saturday Dave rushed to the tee just in time, as the other three had already teed off.

Dave apologized and explained that he had stopped at the Optometrist office on the way to the course to pick up his new bifocals.

Dave put on his new glasses, teed up his ball and after turning his head this way and that proceeded to hit the best drive of his life. Dave’s approach shot to the green was even better than his drive – leaving him a birdie putt which he drilled into the middle of the cup.

Dave continued to play the best golf of his life, he broke 80 for the first time and won every bet.

Of course the foursome retired to the clubhouse after the round to celebrate and allow Dave to buy drinks. After the first round his buddies began to press him to explain his new golf skills.

Dave said “Guys its these new bifocals – when I put them on and looked over the top I saw a little ball and a little club – when I looked through the bottom I saw a big ball and a big club – but if I looked just right I could see a little ball and a big club. So I hit the little ball with the big club all day.

When I putted it was even better, I hit the little ball into the big hole with the big putter.” Well, everyone thought this was exceptional and required several more drinks.

After a while Dave excused himself to visit the Men’s room. However, when he failed to return after a considerable absence one friend went to check on him.

He found Dave at the urinal with the front of his trousers soaking wet.
“What happened?” His friend inquired.

An obviously tipsy Dave replayed “I don’t know. I was standing here taking a leak and I looked down and saw two – one big one and one little one.

Well, I didn’t recognize the big one so I put it back in my pants!”

Good field of 80 players for a team event (4BBB v Par), we were extremely lucky with a great day for golf. We saw a great number of birdies for the day, so well done to each of the players who achieved the feat.

We noticed that a number of players had difficulty loading their scores into the computer which culminated with a number of incorrect scores on the computer so we needed to go back to the old way of checking/recording scores (doing it manually).

  • You don’t have to be a newlywed to plan a vacation primarily for the enjoyment of golf.
  • Your golf partner will never say, “What? We just golfed last week! Is that all you ever think about?”
