Thursday results

It was lovely to see that the course has recovered from recent rains. There was plenty of run but the scores generally didn't reflect this. The obvious exception was Octogenarian Nancy Carey-Berryman who finished 5 clear of anyone else with an outstanding 40, including two wipes!!!

Don't forget that next week is our Charity Day, with a shotgun start 7.30 for 8. The side door will be open from 7am to drop off your goodies.

Good luck to those who are playing in the District Foursomes at Gosford on Monday.

Tomorrow is the last day for Championship entries. If you want to play and won't be there tomorrow please contact Colleen or Michelle.

If you are bringing clothes in on the charity day please bring them on a coat hanger.

Finally just a reminder you have to be a financial member or a golfer unable to play any longer to be a member on our Facebook page. I have been getting some request from family and friends of members to join so these requests are declined.

See you all tomorrow 😎

Abnormal Course Conditions Rule 16

DEFINITION: An animal hole, ground under repair, an immovable obstruction or temporary water. Note :  Most of our gardens at Breakers are ground under repair so this rule applies.

16.1  You get free relief when your ball is in or on Abnormal Course Conditions. The reference point is the nearest point of complete relief and you must drop within a one club length relief area.

16.1e  Relief for your ball NOT FOUND but in or on Abnormal Course Condition
If your ball has not been found and it is known or virtually certain that your ball came to rest in or on an abnormal course condition, you may take free relief by using the estimated point where the ball last crossed the edge of the abnormal course condition.
For example, you might see a ball splash and stop in an area of temporary water (formerly casual water) but it can’t be found. If you are virtually certain it is in there, you may take a free drop. Similarly, at Breakers you often see a ball finish in the garden around the ladies 8th tee. If you can’t find it, you may take free relief if you are virtually certain it finished in the garden.
You must agree that it is known or virtually certain that it is in the abnormal course condition, otherwise you must go back and hit from where the last stroke was taken, using the lost ball rule.

Embedded Ball Rule 16.3a

Here's a rule you may need to know in the current winter conditions.

The rule changed at the start of the year.

Free relief is now allowed if your ball is embedded in the general area. Your ball is only embedded if it is in its own pitch mark made as a result of your previous stroke and part of your ball is below the level of the ground.

NOTE 1: Reference Point for your drop is the point right behind where the ball is embedded. The ball must be dropped within a one-club length relief area and must remain within the relief area.
NOTE 2: Relief is not allowed if interference by anything other than your ball being embedded makes your stroke clearly unreasonable (eg when your ball is embedded under a bush that prevents you from making a stroke).  Relief is also not allowed if it is embedded in sand not on the fairway
NOTE 3: If your ball is embedded on the putting green, you may mark your ball, repair the damage and replace your ball on its original spot.

A chilly start but a lovely day for golf at Toukley.  The course came up amazingly well after all the rain on the Coast, but no one was objecting to being able to prefer in the general area.

Breakers had some great results:

Di Jackson winner of the 70's
Bronwyn second on a c/b in the 50's, and
Michelle......Colyer 6th in the 60's.

Balls were won by Jill Lavery, Nell, Peggy,Vicki Duesbury and Jan Portelli.

Lucky Numbers to Nancy Chilman, Kerry Moore and Di Rudd.

Can't wait to do it all again next year!
