We had a great warm day for our Monthly Medal day which also incorporated our Medal of Medals and also qualifying for the Matchplay Championships.
An excellent field of 92 players our largest for a long time, I hope everyone enjoyed the day and thanks to the players who stay back for a beer in the Island House after play.
The Medal of Medals was won by Paul Quinlin (29) with a net 68 which also included an 11 on the 10th, great round Paul and I would say your handicap will be on the way back down.
Another highlight was a Hole in One on the 7th by Brian Springfield, this was Brian’s 4th hole in one overall and his first at Banora, well done mate.
Now to the main even which was the Februay Monthly Medal and we witnessed some very good scores on the day, the winners were all morning players and the runners up were afternoon players.

Joke of the Week
Two friends went out to play golf and were about to tee off when one fellow noticed that his partner had but one golf ball. “Don’t you have at least one other golf ball?”, he asked. The other guy replied that no, he only needed the one. “Are you sure?”, the friend persisted. “What happens if you lose that ball?” The other guy replied, “This is a very special golf ball. I won’t lose it so I don’t need another one.” Well,” the friend asked, “what happens if you miss your shot and the ball goes in the lake?” “That’s okay,” he replied, “this special golf ball floats. I’ll be able to retrieve it.” “Well, what happens if you hit it into the trees and it gets lost among the bushes and shrubs?” The other guy replied, “That’s okay too. You see, this special golf ball has a homing beacon. I’ll be able to get it back – no problem.” Exasperated, the friend asks, “Okay. Let’s say our game goes late, the sun goes down, and you hit your ball into a sand trap. What are you going to do then?” “No problem,” says the other guy, “you see, this ball is fluorescent. I’ll be able to see it in the dark.” Finally satisfied that he needs only the one golf ball, the friend asks, “Hey, where did you get a golf ball like that anyway?” The other guy replies, “I found it.”
