Men’s Golf Wednesday 27th January

What a great day for golf, weather was perfect, slight breeze, although it might have been a bit sticky if you walked on the day. We had a good field of 89 players

Scores for the day were quite good.

On a housekeeping matter, we have two matters we would like highlight,

  1. Whilst the fairways and teed have been in good condition, we are starting to see a number of divots not been filled in (most likely social players) so if you see any please fill in with sand, that would be appreciated and will maintain the course in good condition.
  2. We have been operating the daily raffles on an honour system, can you please take care with this as we have come up short on a couple of days. The money raised helps pay for days like last Saturday.

Now to the golf results, as mentioned we had a field of 89 players

Congratulations to our winners on the day;

Div. 1 Stuart Irving (18) 37 points on C/B

Div. 2 Nelson Brannigan (24) 39 points

Joke of the Week (thanks Ken Culpitt)

Father Norton woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf.

So… he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to say Mass for him that day.

As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away.

This way he knew he wouldn’t accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish. Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!

At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, “You’re not going to let him get away with this, are you?”

The Lord sighed, and said, “No, I guess not.”

Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole.


St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, “Why did you let him do that?”

The Lord smiled and replied, “Who’s he going to tell?”

Men’s Golf Saturday 16th January

We had 86 players on a warm humid day, the showers cleared before the first group teed off and it stayed clear for the rest of the field.

Please ensure that if you have a provisional NTP or Pro Pin that you mark the appropriate card, as we had a player that was eligible for the Pro Pin and between him and his playing partners, they did not mark the card and therefore he did not win, in a very sportsman act the last name on the Pro-pin Mick Kemp shared his winners. This is a great example of why we have a great club…..Well done Mick

Now to the golf results, as mentioned we had a field of 86 players and we saw some good scores

Joke of the Day

A well off 45-year-old man wanted to join a regular foursome and after waiting two years he finally got his chance, he’d made it and was now to meet his three, new best friends. The discussion was brief as there were few rules governing this group.

1.] They talked betting and he did not care about the costs;

 2.] There was a 7 AM / 7 days a week tee time and could he make that rigid a schedule? His answer was yes, no problem, but occasionally I will be 20 – 30 minutes late, he was told as high as the wagering was, he’d be better off staying home.

 They played a quick 18 and the newbie shot 2 over par. Broke a little above even, money-wise.

 The next day he shot -1, but on this day, he played left-handed, where yesterday he played right-handed. The group had questions for the newbie.

“You’re about even on any side you play off and the difference in the two scores is probably due to feeling the course out.” “My real question is how do you decide which way you will play?” The newbie told them, “I go through my usual crap, shower and shave.” “Then I go to my bedroom closet and open it, viewing both club sets.” “Then I look at Naomi and if she’s on her left side, I shoot lefty; if she’s on her right, then that’s the way I’ll play.” Another player asks, “What if she on neither side?” He says, “Oh, that’s the occasion I’ll be 20 to 30 minutes late!”

With the prospect of rain, we saw our field reduce considerably, those on course only experienced a very brief shower and the conditions were quite good for all the rain we have had over the preceding days. A smaller field of 56 players made it on to the course and completed their rounds.

Scores for the day were quite good.

On a housekeeping matter, don’t forget our” Christmas in January” day on the 23rd, shotgun start at 8 am with a sausage sizzle and drinks after. The day will be a single stableford (3 divisions), you will need to book and the field is limited to 80 players.

Joke of the Week (thanks Mark Jessop)

Four old-timers were playing their weekly game of golf. One remarked how nice it would be to wake up on Christmas morning, roll out of bed and without an argument go directly to the golf course, meet his buddies and play a round. His buddies all chimed in said, “Let’s do it! We’ll make it a priority – figure out a way and meet here early, Christmas morning.” Months later, that special morning arrives, and there they are on the golf course.

The first guy says, “Boy this game cost me a fortune! I bought my wife a diamond ring that she can’t take her eyes off of.” The second guy says, “I spent a ton too. My wife is at home planning the cruise I gave her. She was up to her eyeballs in brochures.” The third guy says “Well my wife is at home admiring her new car, reading the manual.” They all turned to the last guy in the group who is staring at them like they have lost their minds. “I can’t believe you all went to such expense for this golf game. I slapped my wife on the bum and said,’’ Well babe, Merry Christmas! It’s a great morning – golf course or intercourse? “She said, “Don’t forget your hat.”

A good field of 90 players experienced a great day for golf albeit the humidity was a pretty high and you felt like you had been in a wringer by the end of the round.

 We noticed a rarity with Div. 1 dominating the scores for a change.

 On a housekeeping matter can all players please ensure you fill in your divots and any others that you see during your round, this will ensure the fairways are kept in good condition and also if you are in a Cart, please ensure it is 15 metres from the green (unless you have medical exemption).

Joke of the Week

A golfer ran into an old buddy at the driving range one day. They talked about their games, their swings, and all manner of things.
Eventually, one of them said, “How’s the family?”
The other replied, “Oh, pretty good. I got a new set of clubs for the wife the other day!”
“Hey, good trade!” replied the former good buddy
