Golf Weekend Away – Oct 2017

Well it’s taken a little while to get this post up because I wanted to try and forget about some of the mishaps. They say that what goes on tour stays on tour however Chris “Stackhat” Liney deserves a special mention and if you read on you may find out….

A fantastic weekend with great accommodation even with the additional charges from the great negotiation by El Presidente for breakfast! We needed it after the Friday night some of us had!

Saturday kicked off @ Nelsons Bay Golf Club and was a fantastic course followed by a short stint of punting after we missed out on the group quadrilla by a nose, the Tip of a Century that came 4th and trifecta which is still running!! Bloody horses!!

Post that we went back for a great meal at the diggers! Quite literally the biggest meal I’ve ever had. Possibly why I was in the toilet on Sunday please see below for an explanation…

Sunday we played Horizons. It was a great course from what has been previously let go.

The Winners of the weekend was everyone who came having played 2 GREAT courses and for those who didn’t come well thats your bad luck.

The real winners are below:

Tour Champion – Paul “I’m on 27 points” Wintle – 82 Points!!!

2nd Gary “tells people the wrong distance” Gillett + Chris Liney

3rd Paul Armstrong + Paul Wintle

The Story you’ve waited for…

Not only could Chris Liney due to ability to drink, only dribble words like a 2 year old on Friday night but on Sunday he decided he’d be smart and share some wet toilet paper with yours truly whilst I was checking the kids were fine in the pool. However he was obviously so clear headed from the previous weekends debauchery, that he threw it in the wrong cubicle and onto and to say the least INFURIATE the club pro!! To say he was angry was an understatement and I was finding it very hard to hold myself together!

A Great start to the day!!!

The games played today were stable ford, Match play Grand Final and the Champions of Champions. Unfortunately Chris Shaw blew a knee and had to forfeit for A-grade in the Champions race and really that’s what Eric Ripps should have done as he conceded with 2 holes (should’ve been 10) to go!

Riverside Oaks – April 30

A perfect day both weather and golf wise (for some) at Riverside Oaks. Birds chirping, Kangaroos laying back scratching their nether regions and the last time we think that it will be warm @ 7am in the morning for a while… Well warmish!

A brilliant days play and first win for Matt Wolfe, who has been threatening to do so for a long time on 42 points. A close second to Paul Wintle on 40 points and Dave Roberts rounded of the podium on 39 points.

Fourth, fifth and sixth were very tightly contested with Stu (Drive and Pitch) Charlseworth beating Chris Liney in a countback and sixth (never usually mentioned but I want to) went to Kris Asprey!!!!

Finally we had the Bradman for the day – Brendon Lashlie on a massive 19 points!!

Calderwood – March 12

A brilliant day @ Calderwood in the southern highlands for our last game. A day trip which included a bus ride and possibly a few cheeky beers thrown in. Possibly this is where Gazza got the courage to wear those shorts again!!!

The format for this day was a multiplier event with drawn partners (sort of). The winners today are below. I feel there needs to be a spotlight on the handicapper with the high scoring that is coming in these days!!!

Winners were Spyro Kalpidis and Steve Newton on 89 points

Runners Up were Paul Wintle and Rod Watts on less than 89 points.

The best individual scorer was Paul Wintle with 48 points.

There has been a formal protest made and the committee is in negotiations(for beers) for our resident Captain Chris Liney to lose 4 strokes off his handicap given his fleeting love with a tree.
