Cabramatta – Sept 18th

Cabramatta is always a challenging course but as always we had a great turn out and some exceptional golf played!

Winner of the Day Mick Harrison took out the Champions of Champions with a massive 42 points!!! Paul Armstrong just missing out on the win and Gary “el presidente” Gillett bringing up the rear…

Birdie’s were standard of the day with yours truly bagging 2 and Gary Gillett, Andrew Cammelleri, Ron Cameron, Paul Wintle, Dean Clark, Ron Hewitt and Bob Mcrea all taking 1 ball home for their efforts.

Practice makes perfect award goes to Andrew Cammelleri who had plenty of bunker practice as you can see below.

 

Lynwood – August 16

A chilly start to the day which started @ 3 degrees@ 6.45am tee off. Which you can quite easily see the beautiful morning below. Pity about the golf…

The course at Lynwood was in perfect condition with the greens I am told playing a little slow(i’d hate to see them faster). The winner of the day was Eric (needs to look at his own handicap) Ripps. A magnificent 43 point total.

Clubman of the Year – Update July 16

Hi Golfers welcome to the first update of the season for the Clubman of the Year.

For those new to the concept, or those that have never understood how it works – a brief explanation.

For each game that you play, you are awarded 10 points – yes basically for showing up. You then receive an additional 1 point for each golfer you manage to beat on the day resulting in your points tally for the day.

On club events such as Calderwood and the trip away each player in attendance receives the 10 points for showing up, plus an additional point for every other golfer that turns up on the day. So in the case of Calderwood where 14 golfers turned up to play, each player will receive 10 points + an additional 14 points = 24 Points.

The spirit of the Clubman is to reward the most consistent golfer all throughout the year, both in participation and golfing results.

In the words of a past winner, “the Clubman of the year is the most prestigious award to win”
