Pennants 29 April 2019

Another great day of Pennants golf on the Central Coast.  Congratulations to our Banksia team who against all odds came away with a 4-3 victory over Everglades.  Against all odds because our girl Jenny Chapman had to battle against a lady who holed out... yes that is right a hole in one!!


We hosted the Wattle round at home today.  Everyone was appreciative of our fine baked treats and the condition of our course.  A great day had by all.

See you Thursday for the Foursomes xxx

LOST BALL RULE

Here's a rule that has come up quite a bit lately. The three minute limit for looking for a ball does make a difference here. A quick look at your watch might help.






 
LOST BALL
By definition, a lost ball is a ball that is not found in three minutes after the player, her caddie or partner begins to search for it.
If you think a ball might be lost, to save time, you may choose to hit a provisional from the same spot, making sure you state that you are “hitting a provisional”.
When a ball is lost, and you have not hit a provisional, your only option is to go back to where you hit the previous stroke and play from there for a stroke and distance penalty of one.

NOTE 1:  If you have looked for the full three minutes and are on your way back to hit another ball and the original ball is found, it is still deemed to be lost and therefore it is a wrong ball and must not be hit. If you hit the original ball, you must correct your mistake or you will be disqualified in stroke play, wipe the hole in stableford and par, and lose the hole in match play.
NOTE 2: A player may not declare her ball lost. A ball is lost only when it has not been found within three minutes. For example, a player searches for her ball for two minutes, decides it must be in a place she doesn’t like and so declares it lost, then walks back to play another ball. Before the player puts another ball into play, the original ball is found within the three minute search time. Because a player may not declare a ball lost, it is not a lost ball so the original ball must be played.
NOTE 3: If you have had a quick look for your ball, gone back and, before the original ball is found, hit another ball from the previous spot, this ball becomes the ball in play, even if the original ball is found within the three minutes.
NOTE 4: Sometimes, rather than hitting a provisional, if your ball is in an obviously unfavourable position, you might choose to put another ball into play without even going to look for the original ball, again under stroke and distance penalty of one. In this case, you don’t need to announce anything. The fact that you have played another ball is enough.
NOTE 5: Some clubs, eg Shelly Beach, have brought in a local rule with extra options for a lost ball but we have no Local Rule for this at Breakers. Always read the Local Rules board when you visit other courses.

Stroke, Monthly Medal 11th April

The course is looking much better, even the new fence was shining in the sun today. Next time you play make sure you read the new Local Rules Board located on your way into the Pro Shop. There were some great scores today, both high and low.
Good luck to the Pennants players on Monday, at Gosford and Everglades. Fingers crossed for good weather.
To those ladies who have put their hands up to play in the Mixed Foursomes on Saturday, good luck and try to enjoy the new aspects of the course which will be revealed.

Pennants 8th April


 
 
 



Fantastic news from Kooindah today with our Wattle team defeating Morisset 4-3. Congratulations girls. Hopefully the first of many.





In the Banksia pool, Breakers hosted the other clubs. Many thanks to those who provided the morning tea, which was particularly noted as being most impressive. Unfortunately, we had an extra hazard or two to contend with.....see pictures!

The course wasn't too bad but the heat was a problem for many. Scores were very close in all matches.

Stableford 4th April

It was hard work out there today following over 100mm of rain during the week.

A few clever ladies seemed to have played a different course as the scores indicate.
Special mention must go to Michelle Hughes, who continued her outstanding form with a brilliant 40 points!!!

Entries for Mixed Foursomes (13th April) must be done by Monday. The form is in the pro shop and some men are crying out for women so go and check them out!!!

Entries for our Ladies foursomes (27 holes on 2nd May) are also being  taken. If you haven't organised a partner yet, you have until 18th April (Easter Novelty Day). Also, please note that there will be an 18 hole event on Foursomes day if you would rather play in  that.

Good luck to our Wattle Pennant team for Monday at Kooindah against Morisset.

Fingers crossed for no more rain at Breakers as the Banksia Pool will be playing here.

Pennants Round 1


Banksia today played Shelly Beach at Toukley. Most matches were closely contested, with two wins and two draws. Unfortunately, this meant we just lost 4-3. A great effort from everyone.


Wattle played at Wyong against Kooindah. This was tough competition against the current holders. We eventually went down 5-2. Warming up for next week!
