27-29 MAY 2022: 2022 HUNTER VALLEY TOUR

2022 HUNTER VALLEY CHAMPION-BOB MALLIA [32] 114PTS

2022 Hunter Valley Tour Championship results.
After nearly 7 months of planning and much angst because of the recent and non stop rain that has closed many courses over the last 3 months, the tour went ahead without a hitch. The weather turned out to be spectacular and without a drop of rain to be seen. The temperature for this time of the year was extremely comfortable and for the first time in a long time we were able to play 3 x 18 hole games in a row.
Many great moments were had by our attendees and the service given to us at the resort was fantastic.
The champion for 2022 is one of the club’s newer members who has fitted in very well and is genuinely excited about being a part of our club.
Congratulations to Bob Mallia  playing off a handicap of 32bwho shot and aggregate score of 114 to win the championship.
2nd: Adam Giltinan-110
3rd:Mark Donovan – 106
4th:Pat Collins-102
5th:Graham Dean-100
6th:Dennis May-99
7th: Santo Sammarco-97
8th:Mitchell Floyd & Steve Floyd-96
10th:Joy Mesuria & Chris Knock-94
Thank you to all the participants for your great behaviour on tour and for making this event such a success.
Also a big thank you to our tour captain Steve Vaughn and his great assistants Joy Mesuria and Mark McDonald for there tireless work in tabulating all of the results and for conducting the awards presentations.

 

 

 

 

 

2022 Hunter Valley Tour Championship results. Day 1 – The Vintage GC.
Players arrived to play this difficult Greg Norman designed golf course for a 9:30 tee time. The course had been affected by the constant rain over the last three months and was a little soft and soggy. Carts were allowed out but restricted to the paths which made it a little tiring and it also played extremely long.
The golf course is magnificent but extremely difficult and as a result caused the scores to be low. The weather though was perfect and we were grateful that we could even play on the course given the recent weather conditions.

 

2022 Hunter Valley Tour Championship results Day 2: Hunter Valley GC.
After a great night of bonding at Cypress Lakes Resort, the boys awoke on Saturday morning for the included buffet breakfast before making their way to HVGC for a 9am start.
Again and because of the recent weather, carts had only been allowed for the last 2 days and were also restricted to cart paths. This course was not as grand as the previous one but it was very playable with better run on the fairways. The weather was once again glorious and the expected storms never eventuated. Thus resulted in the scores being much higher

 

 

 

 

2022 Hunter Valley Tour Championship results. Day 3: Cypress Lakes Resort
A lot of sore heads rolled up bright and early for breakfast and for the final day of the championship.
The final groups were paired in order of rank to date and teeing off best to worst.
Once again and like the previous 6 times, Cypress didn’t disappoint and was as majestic as ever. Carts were allowed on the fairways and with only a few restrictions. The weather once again was spectacular and scores were expected to be high.

10-4-22: REVESBY V GOULBURN “PIGS ARSE CUP”

GOULBURN WINS THE PIG’S ARSE CHALLENGE

After 6 cancelled games due to the constant rain and flooding over the last few months, it was nice to finally get out and play a full round of golf. The Pig’s Arse Cup was to be played at Moss Vale GC but it also fell victim to the flooding and so after some negotiations with our Goulburn friends, we were able to move the event to Goulburn Golf Club.
16 players made the journey to Goulburn and were greeted by friendly faces and also a long lost friend called the Sun. The course was a little damp in places but carts were allowed out and no one was complaining. The event was single stableford and the rules for the day were preferred lies through the green and no bunkers in play. The team with the highest average score would be declared champions and would avoid the Pig’s Arse Trophy which is presented to the losers.
The round was played in very good time and once finished, the group moved on to the Goulburn Workers Club for some refreshments and the all important presentation ceremony.
The results were Revesby x 16 players had an aggregate of 565 points and average of 35.25 points. Goulburn X 9 players with an aggregate of 321 points and an average of 35.55 points. Therefore, Goulburn workers were declared the winners and happily presented the Pig’s Arse to Revesby.
The best scores from both sides were-
Goulburn: 1st – Greg Robertson 38pts / 2nd– Dave Robertson 37pts c/b
Revesby: 1st– Peter Davis 41pts / 2nd – John Varrica 40pts
All of the other results are pictured below.
Many thanks to Gary Privett and Ray Grant for accommodating us at Goulburn and to all of the members from both sides that made the effort to come and play.
Next year’s event has been booked for Moss Vale on 2/4/23 at 8am. Hope to see you all there.

13-2-2022: CAMDEN GC-RND 1 SINGLE MATCHPLAY CHAMPIONSHIP

OUTRIGHT WINNER: MARK McDONALD [23] 45PTS

Hi Gents,
A great day for golf with no rain to be seen.
The rough was very difficult to escape from and if you were lucky enough to avoid it, you were mostly to have a successful round.
Reading greens were quite difficult and many a s short put dived below the hole on many occasions.
Don’t be disheartened if you had a poor round remember next week is a different course and most likely under different weather conditions.
Hope everyone enjoyed themselves today.
The original draw for the Match Play today changed due to the late inclusion of high seeded player being available for the event and meant that every player below this player moved 1 position and Joy Mesuria did a great job in correcting and reorganising the draw for today’s event.
The draw for the Match play seeding is based on the 2021 Points score with No.1 seed being the Player of the Year followed by the next descending player who nominated to play in the event.
Congratulations to the winners of the respective Match play games today.
Winners are shown below as well as your opponent for next week’s 2nd Round of Matchplay.
Mark Kinnell joined the Club today, welcome Mark we hope you enjoyed the golf today and we look forward to seeing you at your next game.
Now down to the serious part of the day’s play.
Mark McDonald scorched the field and finished his round with 45 points and was putting for Eagle on the 12th hole, didn’t get it unfortunately.
Congratulations to Mark for his outright win. Don’t worry the Handicapper caught up with him.
All the other grade winners are pictured below.

A GRADE WINNER: JOHN VARRICA [12] 37PTS
