The club Championships for 2019 are done and dusted with the final round being played at Dunheved GC .

Congratulations to all of the new champions ( pictured above ) for their consistent and sometimes amazing play.

Dunheved GC is usually in great shape as it draws its water from a nearby treatment works. It had suffered major greens damage due to the heat earlier in the year and had some 9 temporary greens until a few weeks ago. On hearing about this at the start of the month, the president (moir) instructed our club captain to enquire re the state of the greens with the potion to move the round should they not be fit for a championship round. We were assured that there would be no temporary greens by the time we were to play but neglected to inform us that they would be cored instead.

And cored they were. The core holes were the size of a 5 cent piece coupled with an excessive layer of sand and long grass. Making a putt was like winning the lottery due to the uneven pace and the bumpy ride  experienced by the golf ball. On a more positive note, the fairways were a joy to play from with a lot of players not even bothering to prefer their lies.

Never the less it was the same for everyone and the most resilient or most fortunate would triumph today.

The outright winner with a score of 67 nett was the young George Osterman. At 82 years young, George is showing that age is no barrier to performing well. After getting the bunny ears the previous week, he decided to go on a diet of grappa and canolli to get  back to stallion like fitness for this round. Its an easy game when you can hit it dead straight a hundred or so metres at at time and then sink some putts.

The A grade winner with a top score of 70 nett on a countback was the ever improving and consistent Terry Coleman. terry has only played a few games this year due to pennants for his club but has still managed to get up for a few wins . He reports ” I didn’t play very well , hit a lot of bad tee shots but scored well. Short game was surprisingly good on those crap greens”. God help us all when he plays what he considers to be good golf.

The B grade winner was a golfer who seems to be enjoying his golf and life at the moment. Roscoe Hamer shot  70 nett and also collected the C grade championship along the way. Hit some good drives and made a few good putts on those ordinary greens. He too has had a few wins this year and is probably the most consistent golfers at the moment which has seen Roscoe climb to the top of the 2019 leaderboard standings. Keep it up Roscoe.

The C grade winner was Ken Harris with a score of 71 nett. Another multiple winner this year, Ken reports ” Can’t say that I played that great, but being off a handicap of 26 helped and fellow C grader George O winning outright didn’t hurt either. Having already had the bunny ears twice  this year, at lesat my form is going in the right direction ( hopefully )”.

The guzzler for the day was Gray Buckley with another fine score from another consistent golfer this year. Playing off a handicap of 14, Gary manged to shoot a quality round of 70 nett. He reports ” Played pretty good but could have been a lot better if I didn’t land in so many bunkers. I was however happy with my sand shots and the birdie.

The Bradmans were Dennis May  [a grade], Matt Campbell [b grade] and Pat Collins [c grade]. Well done boys…………………NOT!!!!!!!!

High/low Lights for the day

  1. Many golfers have airswings but it is unusual to hear of some doing one while putting. This achievement is credited to Glen Blades who hit a good putt to tap in range but then tried to nudge it in from behind the hole only to hit thin air instead. Some say that he might have actually had to airs wings in that moment.
  2. Graham Dean reported that he had one birdie and a turtle in his round. He saved a turtle from heat stroke on the 14th by picking it up from the middle of the fairway and put him back into the creek. Revesby’s own Steve Irwin (some say more like Bindy ). Crikey he is funny of late!
  3. On arriving at the course, George lattouf was stopped from entering by a very bossy emu. George said that when it finally laid eyes on him that it bolted. Probably because it had never seen a goose driving a car before.
