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!!!!

We look forward to seeing you all back again @ Stonecutters in May!!!
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.
