Again rain threatened in the early morning but we ended up with a fine day. Those ladies who made an early decision to pull out were no doubt regretting their decision as the day went by.
Our field was reduced to 35 Ladies who played a 4 ball aggregate on a rather wet course. Overnight rain made the fairways soggy and approach shots to the green were just stopping short for most of the day.
Winners for the day were Chris Mills and Allison Blair 66 pts with visitors for the day Privanda Hawley and Fiona McConnell 65 pts runnersup. Congratulations Ladies.
NTP 2nd hole DF Culpitt. Marlene Wyatt

Well after that big storm during the night it was surprising to be able to get on the course with carts.
A very good field of 83 players took to the course which turned out to be quiet a hot day.
Winners today were Charlie Huff and Allan Danks with 44pts and runners up David Harrod and John Bryant had 43 getting up on count back.
It was a very close competition as 17 pairs scored between 44 and 40pts.
Ball rundown went to 40pts.
Nearest the pins Division 1, 2nd Nick Davis, 7th Wayne Hunter, 12th John Olsen and 16th Graham Hopkins. Division 2, 2nd Brendon Willoughby, 7th David Wallis, 12th Nathan Smith and 16th Nelson Brannigan. PRO pin John Olsen $ 72.
On the course please remember while driving in your cart stay out of the rough , it might not look wet in places but don’t take that chance, let the course dry . In carts stay 15m away from all greens , we don’t want the grass around the edges of the greens wearing away.
Joke of the day.
A hacker and his caddie embarked upon a round of golf early one morning. After countless bogeys, double bogeys and even a few “others”, the end of the round was finally in sight for the beleaguered golfer and his faithful looper.
On the 18th tee, the player hit a wild slice into the thick rough right of the fairway. After searching for what seamed like hours, the caddie stumbled upon a white dot in the tall fescue and waved his man over. “That can’t be my ball,” the golfer said. “It looks far too old.” “To be fair sir,” the caddie said, “it’s been a long time since we started looking.”

On Friday night the possibility of playing seemed remote but we were fortunate to play albeit there were a few areas with casual water, as we only had 53 players for the day, we only ran a one division stableford event which turned out to be the “Michael Kemp Day”, not only did he win the day, he won the pro pin (again) and also pared the course off the stick (gross 70), well done Mick on your effort.
Now to the golf results, as mentioned we had a field of 53 players (with 15 players equalled or bettered their handicap).
Congratulations to our winner on the day;
Michael Kemp (7) 43 points

Joke of the Day
The room was full of pregnant women and their partners, and the Lamaze class was in full swing. The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe properly, along with informing the men how to give the necessary assurances at this stage of the plan.
The teacher then announced, “Ladies, exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. And, gentlemen, it wouldn’t hurt you to take the time to go walking with your partner!”
The room really got quiet.
Finally, a man in the middle of the group raised his hand.
“Yes?” replied the teacher…
“Is it all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?”
DUE TO THE UNCERTAIN WEATHER AND AFTER THE CLOSING OF THE COURSE FOR THE LAST 2 DAYS ROUND 2 OF THE SINGLE MATCHPLAY HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO NEXT WEEKEND SATURDAY 27TH FEBRUARY 2021
Reminder to everyone our 2021 AGM is to be held on Saturday 20th March at 2pm at the Island House. Nominations have now closed . Copies of the nominations and the notice of motion have been placed on the Club Notice board .
We have one nomination each for President, Vice President and Treasurer. We have one notice of motion to be voted on- this concerns changes to the timing of election of office bearers.
At this stage we have not had a nomination for Secretary, our constitution states that we cannot accept nominations from the floor but we would welcome any expressions of interest and the committee will consider them !
There will be a shotgun start on AGM day with all members welcome to play- details of game and time to be finalised.

Joke of the day.
A wife waited patiently while her husband played a round of golf on their 18th wedding anniversary. Afterward, the happy couple went out to dinner at a lovely restaurant.
They discussed many happy momories they had shared during the years.
Then the wife said, “Want to go for another 18?.
“No,” he replied, “I think it’s too dark now.”
Hit them straight and make your Putts
