Last week, the Club Golf Croquet Singles Tournament with 20 participants was played over

3 days. The players played in one of 3 Blocks. The Winner and Runner-up in each block played in the finals on Saturday the 26th. The overall winner and now our latest golf champion is ERIC WATTS. Well done Eric. The Runner up was Barbara Miller hot on his trail, only 2 hoops behind.

Although competitive, the games were played in great spirit and a good time was had by all.

There were many very close games throughout the week showcasing the vast improvement of many of our players.

The Tournament was a great success. Many thanks go to all those who helped.

GOLF NEWS

Wednesday 23  January  2019

Strong winds and the aftermath of scattered leaves and some limbs did not deter the keen golfers for today’s golf.

Barry Jackson  played a steady  game to score  29  points  followed  by Mal Williamson being Runner Up with 25 points.

Barry kept his eye in to sink the longest Putt on No 18.

 Saturday 26 January 

 Our Australia Day event saw Mal Williamson score  29 points  to win from Barry Jackson with 26 points.  The boys celebrated the Day with welcome refreshments

following  their game on a summer  day which saw Dunsborough beaches crowded .

 Coming Events

 Wednesday       30 January   14 Holes    Names by 12.15    Hit Off  12.30

 Saturday               2 February    14 Holes     Names by 12.15     Hit Off  12.30

 Monday                 4 February     Vets Opening Round           Capel

 Course Maintenance

Following the strong winds  the tractor and a small team of  volunteers were put to good use to clear  some of the leaf debris and limbs from several fairways.

There is still material which can be raked up into small piles  on several fairways.

 Volunteers can make their own time to do this throughout the week  with Tuesday mornings also being a good time for a combined effort.  It’s surprising what can be done in an hour of raking  especially if you know where your shots are consistently landing!!    Who knows, you may find one of your past  lost balls!

Good Golfing All . 

Ron Carmody   –   Captain.
