Tale of bad luck in men's competition

Yet another '90' year birthday was celebrated recently, that of past golfer Joan Bridge, who partied with family and friends. We all wish Joan many more happy birthdays and continued good health.

There was a tale of 'bad luck' on Wednesday during the senior men's nine hole stableford competition. Incidentally, the winner was againt Kenny Foubister on 20 points. Great golf guys!! Getting back to the bad luck story, Dave Graefe had just told Bob Clayton that his 'golf motor cycle' had never let him down. There after the cycle would not start! It needed a new spark plug, next the front tyre went flat, lost two golf balls, hearing aid went flat and biro ran out of ink with tallying the results on the score card. I'd say that was a really 'bad day at the office, Dave', things can only improve.

Scores were again impressive in the seniors nine hold stableford competition on Saturday. Reggie Hocking was front runner on nineteen points, from Col Rodda eighteen and Ian Roberts again in the count on seventeen. Well played!!

Members send a big cheerio to Jenny Pollock and family members. Marge Nicholls has had a rough time of late with a chest infection following knee surgery and life member Margaret Lewis is home at last after a week in the Royal Adelaide hospital. Our best wishes to you both.

The golf diary come year book is now available to all members and can be collected from the golf shop. The contents are enormous with information on every aspect of the club in general from rules, 2017-18 comp winners, 2018-19 programme, sponsors and local rules etc. To those responsible in the production of this valuable asset, my congratulations to you all.

Golf fees are kept to a minimum to you all due to the effort and time given by volunteers. Do you slot in to that category? If not, and you wish to volunteer in some capacity make it known to Brian Cotter or Russell Bambridge. Your services would be much appreciated.
