 Golfer- Caddy Quips!

Lee Trevino said  ,”Caddies are a breed of their own. If you shoot 66, they say,

“Man , we shot 66!” But go out and shoot 77, they say,”Hell, he shot 77!”

Jackie Gleeson- “Obviously the deer on the fairway has seen you tee off before and knows that the safest place to be when you play  is right down the middle.”

I think our kangaroos at Dunsborough probably think the same!   Cheers.

 

The Golf section will be holding their AGM on November 11 2015 commencing at 10 am.
