Notes on todays play:
After a sprinkle of rain on Friday night ( approx. 60mm hit the golf course) 18 diehard golfers tee up for the mornings play
the course was in remarkable condition with only water sitting on about 4 greens, which although soft were still running true.
The rain was falling but not too hard and actually stopped a couple of times during the morning.
The bunkers however were full of water and unplayable. Of the 18 players only 4 managed to match or better their handicap.
Russell Clarke (Secretary ) had a forgettable net 82 and Keith (Mr Strong) managed to waste 5 mins trying to get his ball out of a
small tree on the 3rd only to discover that the ball wasn’t his, so it was back to the tee for his 3rd shot.

Note on slow play:
It is common knowledge that slow play detracts from the enjoyment of the game. Whilst players are not expected to ‘run’ around the course, they should be aware that there are others on the course at the same time and therefore, should act with common sense and courtesy towards those players.
~ A group of 4 players should take 4 hours to play an 18-hole Stableford round. ~ A group’s position is in relation to the group in front, not the group behind.
Specifically: ~ Walk directly and at good pace to your ball. ~ Keep practice swings and pre-shot routines to a minimum. ~ Be ready to play as soon as it is your turn (ie put a glove on, select a club and calculate yardage while waiting to play). On the putting green, putt out whenever possible. ~ Play a provisional ball if your ball may be lost outside a hazard or out of bounds. ~ If a clear hole is lost and the group behind is being delayed, or if there is no group in front and the group behind is being delayed, invite the group behind to play through. ~ At the green, position your bag on the way to the next tee. ~ Move off the green as soon as all players in the group have holed out. ~ Mark the score card on the next tee while others are teeing off. If you have the honour, enter scores for the previous hole AFTER you have played your tee shot. If you do not have the honour, enter the scores for the previous hole whilst the first player is playing their tee shot. ~ In Par, Stableford, and Four-ball events, pick up when you can no longer score on the hole.
‘Where a maximum handicap event exists, the ladies handicap will be 34 NOT 32 as stated
in the Club Fixtures and Syllabus book. The calculation is in accordance with advice from
Golf Australia and adopted by the Match Committee and approved by the Executive Committee”.
