We had 82 players on a beautiful day for golf, light breeze, sunshine, great fairways (shame I missed most of them), greens starting to quicken up and the bunkers have improved considerably (please remember to rake after use) there were not too many reasons to have a bad score.
Now to the golf results, as mentioned we had a field of 82 players and we saw some good scores, with Wayne Muir recording an eagle on the 3rd with a chip in with his second shot, well done Wayne and then his buggy decided it had enough for the day on the 15th, thanks to Macca and Mick McKay for towing it back to the clubhouse.

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!”
