Thursday 22nd March Par Game

Unfortunately the weather and greens added to an average scoring game for all

1st Div  Winner  Aiki Harrigan -4 c/b  R/U Dianne  Connolly  -4
2nd Div  Winner  Cheryl Ledger -3  R/U  Dee Barham -4 c/b
3rd Div  Winner  Janice Hoban  -5 c/b  R/U Linda Hough

Well done ladies in very trying conditions.

Rule Clarification.   Hole 6/15th  the only area deemed a path is to the side of the actual tee area.  The dirt leading away from the Tee is not a path as it is not bordered. 

Local Rule on the back of the card is that paths must be bordered to be classified as paths, the other Local Rule is paths defined by blue metal as on the path from 8th to 9th hole and 7th to 8th ladies tee.  Always read the local rules board at the Pro Shop and always read the local rules on the back of score cards at our Club and when you play away.

Rule Clarification.  Hole 4  If when teeing off and your ball enters the creek and flies up the creek and stays in the creek then the place to re hit is where it first entered the hazard (red pegs) and this is quite often either back at the Tee or just by the path.....you can use the arc rule and drop on the other side of the creek no nearer the hole.  It is not where it came to land, it is always where it last crossed the hazard and if it follows the creek up then the last place it crossed was down near the tee area.   Sorry  but that is the rule.

Good luck to all for the Foursomes Championships on 29th March.....

Toukley Ladies Golf 2 day Competiton

It was fabulous to see so many of our Ladies taking part in Toukley's 2 day competition. Great weather and good course added to a great 2 days. 

Cheryl Baker won a straightest drive for 1st Div and quite a few ladies won balls

I think Ann thought she would see if dressing like Ian Poulter might help her golf 
 nothing like matching your shoes to the colour of your outfit..........Go Girl

Hawkes Nest and Bowral Trips

A Large contingent of our Lady golfers went visiting, one group to Hawkes Nest for their 2 day Competition and another group to Bowral for Golf NSW Summer meeting. 

The Hawkes Nest Ladies had a wonderful time competing over the 2 days, information to hand at present says  Kerry Mc Inerney came 4th on the first day and Viv Ball won a nearest the pin

The ladies that went to Bowral had a great few days but due to the weather down south the competition was cancelled.  Highlands Golf Club at Mittagong was the only course open and they put on a competition for us but please......... don't ask how we went, slipping and sliding in all the mud.

15th March, Next Thursday's comp

Ladies, due to the rain washing out our Stableford, 1st District Brooch last thursday, we will now run a Single Stableford 1st Dist Brooch,  inconjunction with the Team event on 15th March, 2012

Our 1st Hole is back in play it is COMPULSORY TEE UP on the new area.   That means that you MUST tee up if you don't apart from wrecking the new work it is a 2 STROKE PENALTY

Also there has been some confusion regarding our bridges, on our course they are all an integeral part of the course and  all bridges are in the hazard, according to the colour pegs around the water eg: red or yellow, so you can hit off the bridge if you wish, you may ground your club on a construction in a hazard, rule (13.4 note) or you may take a penalty and drop according to the rules applying to the appropriate colour peg.  You are also able to call any ball unplayable, take a penalty and play according to your rules book or little card with simplified rules.

Another peculiar query came up the other day,  I putted my ball into the hole on the green before my partner had retrieved her ball, as she was filling in the nearest the pin.   It was thought by one of the partners that this was a penalty, but after referring to the rule book and then with Joan O'Connell, our Rules guru, it is not a penalty, although not advised as the ball may jump out again when hitting the first ball and this would incur another stroke to get it back in the hole.

Well done to all the ladies.

Please note  that they are bringing our Course renovations forward a week and they will now be done on 7th March, if this goes ahead we will run our Stableford on the 8th, but will not be handicapping due to the condition of the greens,  however we will look at running a single stableford in conjunction with our team game on 15th March for handicapping and for our district brooch.

Lets hope the weather has rained itself out and we will have fine sky from now on
