GUZZLERS CUP CHAMPION & OUTRIGHT WINNER: JOY MESURIA [15] 37PTS C/B

Sadly, it’s the penultimate round for 2018, an ironic description in more ways than one.

With the Christmas bash scheduled for next week at Bankstown, most players will be in survival mode today, hoping to scrape through the long Liverpool obstacle course without receiving […]

2-DEC-2018: SINGLE STABLEFORD-MUFTI DAY

OUTRIGHT WINNER: KEN LITTLE [16] 42PTS

Isn’t it strange, you start writing about rare and quirky golf decisions two weeks ago, like completing a swing when a clubhead falls off in either the back-swing (not counted) or down-swing (counted as one-shot) and sure enough, a very similar situation occurred in the recent Australian PGA tournament […]

25-NOV-2018: CABRAMATTA-2BBB

WINNERS: JOY MESURIA & NOEL CONNOLLY 47PTS

Its been several years since we played on the Kikuyu and Couch fairways and Penncross (Bentgrass) greens of Cabramatta golf course, and as usual, they appeared in excellent condition.

A large roll-up of 32 players congregated on the 1st tee for a 6:56am start from the friendly […]

OUTRIGHT WINNER: STEVE VAUGHN [23] 39PTS

It was 100 years ago on the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month, when the Great War ended.

21-OCT-2018: Bankstown GC- Matchplay Final + Stableford

2018 SINGLE MATCHPLAY CHAMPION: RYAN CASSIN

After the wash out in the Lawson Cup at Penrith last week, its been three weeks of no golf to report on (with a wry smile on the scribe’s face).

The thunderstorms that hit Sydney on Friday evening must have frightened a few players away today because only […]

30-SEP-2018: 2BBB STABLEFORD

WINNERS:JOHN VARRICA & PHIL KILAZOGLOU 47PTS C/B

It’s the last day in September and tomorrow is a public holiday, making the weekend extra long.

How many people know why we have a long weekend on the first Monday in October each year (well, for the ACT, NSW and SA anyway)?

Is it to do […]

23-SEP-2018: Camden GC-Single Stableford

OUTRIGHT WINNER: CLAUDE POLETTI [22] 44PTS C/B

Its been 16 months since Revesby last played here and it was good to see 26 players roll up on the social golf-friendly course to play a single stableford event at 6:45am.

The relatively short course (around 5,900 metres) allows the social golfer to go for broke with […]

16-SEP-2018: SINGLE STABLEFORD + 4TH RND MATCHPLAY

OUTRIGHT WINNER: TERRY COLEMAN [14] 37PTS C/B

Its been three weeks of no golf, so 28 eager golfers showed up today in another attempt to conquer the benign Bankstown golf course, not realising their delusion and poor memory of past misdeeds.

Today’s event was a single stableford event in conjunction with the fourth and penultimate […]

OUTRIGHT WINNER: RYAN CASSIN [14] 33PTS C/B

It’s our third game here in two years and based on the previous two visits, good scores will be hard to come by. Fortunately, the weather today was perfect for golf, totally different from the scorching temperature on our first visit and the frost-bite inducing cold on our […]
