Mal Gammon 11/11/17
Mal shared a cart with Tony Smith, who is left handed. At one stage mal got confused about whose clubs were whose on the back of the cart.
Tony Harding 4/11/17
Tony Harding tells his own story of a remarkable round, which could have been a personal best (PB) but for one spectacularly shocking hole. In summary, he got ...
1. Best nett
2. Nearest the pin
3. Longest drive
4. $5 payout from his bet with the Captain
5. A moose (score of 10 on the 6th).
Geoff Weir 14/10/17
Tony Harding tells the story of The Captain's struggle with numbers on the first tee a couple of weeks back. He normally puts tees of various colours into a hat and we draw them to determine playing groups.
Nick Mayman 7/10/17
New member Nick has been fairly consistent in getting scores over 50 for 9 holes since he joined us a couple of months ago, resulting in a handicap of 17. Today, though, was pretty extraordinary, with a gross score of 42, giving him net 25!!
Geoff Weir 7/10/17
One of Geoff's better rounds today.
Tony Harding 18/03/17
Tony finished 2016 on a high, with his handicap down at 5 (for 9 holes), but in 2017 he has seen a lot of bad luck on the course. Today was a notable low point.
St John Kenny 11/03/17
Poor St John. He made a good start to a hole but then got stuck in a bunker. After quite a few unsuccessful attempts to get out of it, he resorted to flailing wildly away with his sand wedge, sending sand flying everywhere.
Jim has been playing with our group for a couple of months. This limerick is a reflection on whether he fits in. His ability to put up with our teasing is strongly in his favour.
Limericks from other years: 2009 ¨ 2010 ¨ 2011 ¨ 2012 ¨ 2013 ¨ 2014 ¨ 2015 ¨ 2016 ¨ 2017
