Did you change your clocks on Saturday night or were you one of those who forgot, like us!  

Didn’t you have to be there by eight John? Yeah, plenty of time, it’s only a quarter to eight.

Umm, it was actually a quarter to nine and yes, he was very, very late.

Marc Johnson had organised a family fun day for young golfers between seven and seventeen and his enthusiasm and eagerness was a credit to him.

Sunday’s junior golf saw young golfers try out the chipping area and every player won a prize.

The youngsters who attended would have thoroughly enjoyed the morning of coaching, fun and a barbecue to follow.

I believe that Marc will be organising other Sunday mornings in the future so keep your ears and eyes open and bring the kids along for a great Sunday morning.

A credit to you, Marc.

And now that Day Light Savings has returned guess what is making a return to the golf club? Twilight golf!

Now it has been a while, but here it is.

Every Tuesday afternoon starting from October 16, golfers will be hitting off between 4 and 5pm.

Twilight golf is open to anyone who wants to play or even if they just want to have a go.

It is heaps of fun in the afternoon of the early summer evenings.

Competition fees are $7 and when play is over there is a sausage sizzle included for you to enjoy.

The bar will be open and as usual the drinks are some of the best prices in town, in this instance, beer is $4.00 each.

So come along.

Wife, send him along, you won’t have to worry about tea then or even better come along yourself – everyone is welcome – you don’t need to be a member. All welcome.

Matt Kennedy showed the rest of the players how it was done last Saturday when he shot forty three points in the first round of the summer season, in a stableford round.

Kennedy played possibly his best round of the year, hitting seventy four off the stick, just three over par for the eighteen holes.

He had parred the front nine and whole the back nine had blown out a little, he had only been over the three shots.

A great round for Kennedy. Kennedy also picked up the Nearest The Pin on ten.

The Ball Winners list, well, this was impressive.

Whilst I wouldn’t say that the Ball Winners this week were anything more than in the ‘young’ basket, I, well, I really am not sure how I would describe it.

Finishing on forty points had been Bob Riding, a little more than twenty one years of age, Max Bickley, also finding it a while since he had attended after school care and Don Dietman, well, you don’t find all that knowledge in a short time.

They had blitzed the field. And then Wally Zilm, also not one of the dancing team, had finished with thirty nine points.

What had happened to the young golfers of the world?

Well, sneaking into the elite list had been Grant Norton, who had also finished with thirty nine points.

He had seemed a bit out of place really.

But it hadn’t finished there.

The members of the short list had also taken out NTP on fourteen and the Long Drive in C Grade, Max Bickley and Wally Zilm respectively.

Oh, and Norton had grabbed the Long Drive in A Grade.

Tony Coombe was in the prize winners list and scored the NTP on sixteen.

The B Grade Long Drive had been taken out by Phil Johns.

I thought that Gary Ryan had a rough sort of day, seeing that his card was way down in the pack, with a thirty four scrawled on it.

But on inspecting the card it had only been the eighth hole that had seen the devil on his shoulder appear.

Ryan had actually parred the back nine but when I had gone to total up his front nine which was thirty seven without the eighth hole’s score, I see that this hole had a stroke clean through the line.

Not sure what happened here, but it didn’t do anything to throw his game off, playing of a handicap of five.
