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.
Nomination form for Committee and the Agenda are on the Men’s Golf Section notice board.
