Joke of the day

An Alien spaceship hovered over a golf course and two aliens watched a solitary golfer in amazement. The golfer duffed his tee shot, shanked his second into the rough, took three to get out of the rough onto the fairway, sliced the next shot into the bushes. Then, the golfer took a putter to poke it out onto the fairway again. Meanwhile, one Alien told the other that he must be playing some sort of weird game, and they continued to observe the golfer. The golfer then skulled a shot into a bunker by the green. He took several shots to get out of the bunkers and finally onto the green. He putted several times until he finally got it into the hole. At that point, the other Alien told his partner, “Wow, now he’s in serious trouble!”

A man goes to the Doctor complaining about stomach problems. The Doctor asks him what he’s been eating. “I only eat golf balls,” he says. “Red ones for breakfast, Yellow and Orange for lunch, Blue for afternoon snacks, and Purple and Black for dinner.” “I see your problem,” says the Doctor. “Your not getting enough Greens.”

Joke of the day

Allan went to the Doctors and said, “Doc every time I swinging my 7 iron, I pass this outrageous gas.” He swings the 7 iron in the Doctors office and breaks a loud sound of wind. Then he swings the 8 iron, and nothing, he swings the 6 iron, and nothing. He swings the 7 iron again and the same loud sound is heard, followed by a very foul smell. The Doctor says,”Hmm, interesting case,” and gets up and grabs a long pole against the wall. “What are you going to do with that,” Allan nervously asks, fearing the worst. “I’m going to open the window and let some air into the room,” the Doctor replied.

A golfer sliced a ball into a field of chickens, striking one of the hens and killing it instantly. He was understandably upset, and sought out the Farmer. “I’m sorry,” he said, ” My terrible tee shot hit one of your hens and killed it. Can I replace the hen?” “I don’t know about that,” replied the Farmer, mulling it over, “How many eggs a day do you lay.”

Joke of the day

Jesus and Moses were playing golf. On the 5th hole, a shot over water to an Island Green, Moses hit his 6 iron and it landed perfectly on the green. Jesus pulled out his 7 iron and began teeing it up when Moses stopped him. “The 7 isn’t enough Club. It’ll go in the water.” Jesus replied, “If Tiger Woods can do it, I can do it.” He swung the 7 iron and, sure enough, it landed straight in the drink. He teed up a second ball and grabbed his 7 iron again. Moses reminded him of his previous attempt, and again Jesus said, “If Tiger Woods can do it, I can do it.” “Plop”. Into the water it went again. He continued to try to hit the 7 iron over and over until he ran out of golf balls in his bag. At that point, Jesus began to walk out on the water looking down to locate his lost golf balls. The Foursome behind them approached the Tee, spotted Jesus out on the lake and said to Moses, “Hey, who does that guy think he is, Jesus Christ?” “NO,” Moses responded. “He thinks he’s Tiger Woods.”

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 woman how to breathe properly, along with informing the men how to give the necessary assurances at the plan. The teacher then announced, “Ladies, exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. And, gentleman, it wouldn’t hurt you to take the time to go walking with your partner!” The room got quiet. Finally, a man in the middle of the group raised his hand. “Yes?” Replied the teacher. “Is it alright if she carries the golf bag while we walk?”

MENS GOLF SATURDAY 30/10/21

I have to say that we have a raffle on Wednesday and Saturday, just about every week we are short on the amount of tickets sold to the amount of money we receive. It my be 1,2 or 3 dollars or even 50c to 80c, but today after the morning field went on to the course we were $20 short and after the afternoon field we had to add another 60c, $20.60 in all. We run this raffle under a honor system, it is $2 per square, not what change you have in your pocket. The profit we get from the raffles go to the Christmas party, and The Foursome Championship drinks, also it allows us to have more 3 division events, extra NTP’S, extra ball rundowns for best front nine or back nine scores and the Birdie Blitz. If the loss of money continues all the extras are gone, it is also not fair on the players who are doing the right thing.

Moving on, this week I was contacted by Roger, he informed me that players in carts or scooters are not keeping the 15m distance from the green. If this continues a penalty could be imposed on the person responsible for the cart or scooter.

Today’s results.

Division 1 Winner, Michael Kemp (8) 43pts, Runnerup Patrick Hayes (10) 40pts.

Division 2 Winner, David Kammer (27) 42pts, Runnerup Cody Ross (33) 41pts.

Ball rundown went to 36pts.

NTP’S Division 1, 2nd, Terry Foster, 7th, John Faust, 12th, Steve Wilkinson, 16th, Simon Woolley.

Division 2, 2nd, Liam Henzell, 7th, Paul Quinlin, 12th David Kammer, 16th, Mark James.

PRO PIN Steve Wilkinson $62.00

Bazza’s Birdie Blitz was won by Michael Kemp $20 Voucher

Raffle Winners were

Brad Wilkinson $50, Darren Hubery $75, David Harrod $25.

Banora Point Real Estate Lucky Draw $20 Brad Wilkinson.

Joke of the day

A guy walks into his Pro Shop after a disappointing round and says to the Pro, “I think I need a new set of irons. I’ve tried everything to no avail.” The Pro is all excited to help this guy out. “I’ve got the perfect deal for you, these just came in,” he says. “A new manufacturer has a promotion, all you need to do is take these clubs out and test them for free! The best part is when you’re done, you get to keep them for nothing!” The guy thinks over the deal for a minute before replying, “No thanks. The last time I tested something for free, it took a Lawyer to get rid of her!”

A golfer who was known for his bad temper, walked into the Pro Shop one day and plunked down big bucks for a new set of woods. The staff all watched to see what would happen after he used them for the first time, more than half expecting he’d come in and demand his money back. But the next time he came in, he was all smiles! “They’re the best clubs I’ve ever had,” he said ” I’ve really had tremendous improvement! In fact, I’ve discovered I can throw them at least 15m father than my previous set!”
