The conditions for today were very tough. 39 players battled it out on wet fairways and heavy rough, and hot and humid conditions which took it’s toll on a few players.

One Division today and the winner was Gerry Martin (20) with 39pts. Runner up was Graham Hopkins (16) with 38pts. Ball rundown went to 33pts.

NTP’S 2nd Brendon Williams, 7th Kevin Haddrick, 12th Michael Tink-Hornett 16th Graeme Johnson

Pro Pin Michael Tink-Hornett $36

Bazza’s Birdie Blitz Ray Price $20 Pro Shop

Let’s hope the weather picks up and dries out the course and allows the carts to get back out there so everyone gets to enjoy a game of golf.

Joke of the day

A routine Police Patrol parked outside a Bar at Banora Golf Club. Shortly before closing, the officer sees a man carrying golf clubs leaving so intoxicated that he could barely walk. The man stumbled and bumbled around the parking lot. The Officer remained quiet, observing him. The man stumbled for what seemed like an eternity trying his keys in five different vehicles. Finally, he found his pickup truck and tried to throw his clubs in the back, but fell down trying. His golf bag and clubs fell out and tumbled on top of him. He sat there looking at his clubs and bag for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off.

He gathered everything up, got into his truck, started the engine and switched the wipers on and off, even though it was a clear moonlit night. Then he flicked the blinkers on and off a couple of times, honked the horn and switched on the lights. He moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little, and then remained still for a few minutes as some more of the other patrons vehicles left.

At last, When his was the only vehicle left in the parking lot, he pulled out and drove slowly down the road.

The Police officer, having waited patiently all this time, now started his Patrol car, and put on his emergency lights and pulled the man over.

“Good evening, Officer,” the golfer said. “License and Registration, please? Have you been drinking tonight?” the Officer said. “No Sir, not a drop,” the man said. The Officer administered a Breathalyzer test. To his amazement the Breathalyzer indicated no evidence that the man had consumed any alcohol at all! Dumbfounded, the Officer said, “I’ll have to ask you to accommodate me to the Police station, the Breathalyzer must be broken,

“I SERIOUSLY DOUBT IT”. The golfer said. Tonight, I’m the Designated Decoy”.

Joke of the day

Stevie Wonder and Jack Nicklaus are in a bar. Nicklaus turns to Wonder and says, “How is the singing career going?” Stevie Wonder says, “Not to bad, the latest album has gone into the top 10, so all in all, it is pretty good, by the way, how is the golf?” Nicklaus replies, “Not to bad, I am not winning as much as I used to but I’m still making a bit of money. I have some problems with my swing, but I think I’ve got that right now.” I always find when my swing goes wrong I need to stop playing for a while and think about it, then the next time I play it seems to be all right,” says Stevie. “You play golf!?” asks Jack. Stevie says, “Yes, I have been playing for years.” “But I thought you were blind; how can you play if you are blind?” Jack asks. “I get my caddie to stand in the middle of the fairway and he calls to me. I listen for the sound of his voice and play the ball towards him, then when I get to where the ball lands the caddie moves to the green of farther down the fairway and again I play the ball towards his voice,” explains Stevie. But how do you putt?” Nicklaus wondered. ” Well” says Stevie, ” I get my caddie to lean down in front of the hole with his head on the ground and I just play the ball to the sound of his voice.” Nicklaus says, “What is your handicap?” ” I play off scratch,” Stevie assures Jack. Nicklaus is stunned and says to Stevie, “We must play a game sometime.” Wonder replies, “Well, people don’t take me seriously so I only play for money, and I never play for less than $100,000 a hole.” Nicklaus thinks it over and says, “Ok, I’m up for that, When would you like to play?. “I don’t care,” Wonder says, “Any night next week is okay with me.”

Joke of the day.

Bert, at 80 years old, always wanted a pair of soft spike golf shoes. Seeing some on sale after his round, he bought some. He was so delighted with his new shoes, he decided to wear them home to show his wife.

Walking into the house, he proudly sauntered into the kitchen and said to his wife, ” Notice anything different about me, Margaret?”

She looked him over and replied, “Nope.”

Frustrated and annoyed, Bert stormed off into the bathroom, undressed and walked back into the kitchen, completely naked, except for the new golf shoes.

Again he asked her, a little louder this time, “Notice anything different “NOW” Margaret?”

His 78 year old wife looked up and said, “Bert, what’s different? “It’s hanging down today; ” It was hanging down yesterday; “It’ll be hanging down again tomorrow.”

Furious Bert yells, “And do you know WHY it’s hanging down, Margaret?” “Nope, not a clue.” she replied. ” It’s hanging down because it’s looking at my beautiful new golf shoes!”

Without missing a beat Margaret replied, “You shoulda brought a new hat.”

This Saturday’s event is a 2 Person Ambrose weather permitting, there are still spots available and Saturday 20th of March is our AGM , we are playing a Single Stableford, mixed field, with an 8am shotgun start. We still have spots available, so book your starting TEE.

Joke of the day.

A group of golfers are putting on the green when suddenly a ball drops in their midst. One of the golfers winks at the others and shoves the ball into the hole with his foot. A few seconds later, a player puffs onto the quite out of breath and red of face. He looks around distractedly and then asks, “Have any of you seen a ball that came down around here?” “Yeah, it went in the hole,” the joker answers with a straight face. The golfer looks at him unbelievingly, then walks towards the hole, looks in, reaches down and picks up the ball with his markings on it. Without so much as a word, he turns, runs down the fairway and, as he nears his partners, the group on the green hears him shout, “Hey Sam I got an 11.”

Joke of the day.
Every time Peter , the guy next door, headed toward Paul’s house, Paul knew he was coming to borrow something. Peter was always borrowing stuff and it was driving Paul mad.
” Peter won’t get away with it this time,” muttered Paul to his wife. “Watch this,”
“I wonder if you’ll be using your hedge trimmer this morning?” Peter asked.
“Crikey, i’m terribly sorry,” Paul said with a smug look , “but the fact of the matter is I’ll be using it all day.”
“In that case , you won’t be using your golf clubs …. Mind if I borrow those?”

Hit e’m straight and make those putts.
