7-JULY-2019: 1ST RND 4BBB MATCHPLAY CHAMPIONSHIP

OUTRIGHT WINNER: WAYNE COLEMAN [17] 40PTS

Today’s event was the 1st round of the 4BBB Championship and it was played at Camden lakeside GC.

Players were greeted at the course by a heavy fog and due to the recent rain, no carts were allowed onto the course. A couple of players showed up to hit one ball and then went home.

Why would anyone do this you might ask? Well, with the pointscore championship being so close, attendance points will become very valuable and the only stipulation in getting them is to show up, pay your money and hit a golf ball.

With all of the pairings finalised, the game commenced from the 12th tee. Visibility was zero for the first 4 holes but when the fog lifted, the players were treated with a beautiful day .

All of the winners are pictured above and below.

A grade winner: Dennis May [16] 37pts

B GRADE WINNER: MARK McSWINNEY [20] 37 PTS

C GRADE WINNER: PETER DAVIS [27] 35PTS

A grade Bradman: Joy Mesuria 21pts

B GRADE BRADMAN: NOEL CONNOLLY 26PTS

C-GRADE BRADMAN: ROSSCO HAMER (DNF)

At the last general meeting, the President tabled a motion that the distance to the pin for the eagles nest be increased because it had been a long time since someone had won it. prior to this game there were two holes where money was available and both were almost at the limit of $1200. This motion was defeated and the 400 mm limit was retained.

As it turned out today, the president’s had no need to be concerned as the major eagles nest was won by an great shot by Phil Kilazoglou on the 15th hole to 215mm. Well done Phil and your playing partners love you too.

$1200 Eagles Nest: Phil Kilazoglou 215mm

23-JUNE-2019: FINAL RND 2BBB CHAMPIONSHIP-MACARTHUR GRANGE

2019 2BBB CHAMPIONS: JOHN McDONALD & jEFF HILDER 92POINTS

The final round of the 2 BALL BETTER BALL CHAMPIONSHIP was played today at the very demanding and extremely cold Macarthur Grange golf club.

Today’s result was a clear championship win by Jeff Hilder and John McDonald with a great score of 48 points. they left the field in their wake by 2 shots.

This makes it the 4th time that this magnificent duo  have won this major championship which is the most of any team in the club’s history.

Jeff played consistent over the day with no wipes on any holes to amass a fine score of 40 points individually. In contrast, Macca didn’t score on 5 of the first 9 holes but came home with a wet sail to conjure up 21 points on the back nine ( this is when the performance enhancing amber liquid finally kicked in).

F… you Macca was heard on a couple of occasions after two 4 a 4’s in a row in between a couple of 3 pointers.

Runners up on the day and on a countback were Gary McMahon and Allen Foster with a top effort of 46 points.

The Guzzlers Cup was won by Pat Collins and Terry Coleman also with a score of 46 points. Macca can’t wait to see Pat at the pub on Thursday to use the cup.

The Bradmans on the day were Matt Campbell and Ken Harris by more shots that should be mentioned. Oh, 17 behind the winners. Their score was a poultry 31 points which was not aided by Kenny’s diabolical score of 14 points individually.

 

The hard luck story of the day went to Rossco Hamer and Peter Davis with their classic demise to go from leading the championship to missing out on the chocolates. It looked liked Rossco had run in to a lemon tree after the round.

17-19 MAY-2019 : CYPRESS LAKES TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP

The 5th Cypress Lakes Tour Championship was held on the 17th to 19th of May and was contested over three rounds at this very picturesque and difficult golf course.

36 eager golfers attended this tour  including a few visitors who show up for this very social event.

The weather was spectacular and the golf course played very hard with the main difficulty being the lightning quick greens. There were many stories of multiple three putts and some four putts thrown into the mix. The resort and it’s staff were also at their immaculate best  and were very accommodating towards the needs of our group.

With all of the results in for the three rounds , it was time to announce the champion golfer for the 2019 Cypress Lakes Tour Championship.

Congratulations go to Terry Coleman who played the most consistent golf with an average score of 36pts per round and a total of 108 points to be crowned the new champion. Terry managed the course very intelligently and was probably the only golfer that didn’t use a driver on every par 4 or 5. He calculated his landing areas and was in play off the tee the majority of the time. Well played Terry and well deserved.

With the culmination of another very successful tour, I must congratulate all of the tour group for their behaviour and camaraderie during this event.

Many thanks must also go to the tour match committee of Claude Poletti, Joy Mesuria and Phil Kilazoglou for their tireless and unenviable job of running this event. Thier job was very time consuming and their work was meticulous and because of this the event ran like clock work.

We also thank Cypress Lakes Resort managemant and staff for looking after us and making our stay so pleasurable.

See you all again in 2021.

The Prez.

28-APR-2019: 2 BALL BEST BALL STABLEFORD

Winners: Claude Poletti & Phil Kilazoglou 49 points c/b

Today’s game was played at Georges River GC and was a 2BBB stableford event.

Groups are selected randomly and then the players in each group toss balls to see who their partner will be. The team with the highest points score will be declared the winners.

23 players turned up for this game at a course that is not liked by some of our members but also home to a few of our senior players, namely the Friday Rules gang that play there a few times a week and should be the hot favourites today. Then again it is Sunday and not Friday and the extra competition might just be too much for the Friday burglars.

The course was in very good shape considering that the day before they had 3 or 4 temporary greens in play. The rough was a little high so the President declared preferred lies through the green as the rule for the day.

With all the groups in the clubhouse and tucking in to the great food on offer from Gasparos restaurant, the acting captain Claude Poletti made the call and palmed off the presentation duties to the trophies officer mark McDonald who did a splendid job.

Mark announced that the winners on the day were the team of Claude Poletti [20] & Phil Kilazoglou [16] with a great score of 49 points on a count back. No wonder Claude didn’t want to do the presentation.

Claude reports that the Greek/Italian connection saw them combine well with individual scores of 43 pts for himself and 40 pts for Kila. They putted for numerous birdies but only came away with two. had they converted these opportunities the score could have been anything. There group with Gary McMahon had  a great and enjoyable day. Most pleasing was that they defeated the whinging Roscoe on a count back. He declares to all to beware because the Internationals are back.Well played boys.

The runners up were the team of Roscoe Hamer [21] & newish member Mark McSwinney [20] with the equally good score of 49pts. Roscoe has been having some year as he has been in the winners circle every second week and is currently leading the pointscore championship. Today though his 34 pts had to play second fiddle to Mark’s 41 pts individually. When asked about his round, Mark stated that he played very well for 8 pars, 29 putts and a chip in on the 3rd hole. He was a little astray with his drives but the forgiving course was to his advantage and he recovered well when needed. His only gripe was that he couldn’t hit a fairway wood to save his life.  Great effort boys.

Guzzlers Cup was won by George Lattouf and Peter Davis with a score of 48 pts. This was a bit of a disappointing result given that Peter has been on the podium almost every week this year and George is the self proclaimed king of this course and claims that he knows every blade of grass personally. then again it was a Sunday and we know that George can only play good golf on Fridays with a dodgy handicap. Never the less a good effort boys.

The Bradmans today were the team of Luis Tasaico and Ian Lindberg. I can’t remember their team score so it couldn’t have been that impressive. “Ears” to some better golf in the future boys.

 

Note: A reminder that this was the last game for final handicap changes before the Cypress Lakes trip on the 17th of May. Members attending this event should check the Leaderboard page for their handicaps. All the trip details have also been uploaded to the website and can be found by clicking “HERE”.

I apologise for not mentioning the NTP and Drive & pitch winners, but I somehow misplaced the results sheet.

Many thanks to Joy, Claude and Mark for their work on the day.

This report was brought to you by this terrific sponsor of our club so please support and also recommend them to others as it helps our club immensely.

14-APR-2019: CAMPBELLTOWN GC-S/STABLEFORD

OUTRIGHT WINNER: PAT COLLINS [27] 42PTS

Today’s round was played at Campbelltown GC and it was a single stableford event.

The round was contested by 24 players at this well known track. The weather was quite cool in the morning for a 6:30am start and the course was in pretty good condition.

Seeing that there was very little to no feedback from most of the winners, we will have to settle for the results only in this report.

I will remind our members that I have an a great deal to do for our golf club and on top of this I have by default taken on the duty of writing up these match reports for lack of enthusiasm from anybody else. Whilst I am happy to continue doing this until someone else puts their hand up (cough cough), I don’t think that it is  too much to ask of our winning members to submit a small report about their performance on the day as this would aid me considerably.

The results are as follows:-

Outright winner: Pat Collins with a fine performance of 42 points.

A grade winner: Shane Thorn [7] 40pts

B grade winner: Steve Floyd [18] 39 pts.

Steve reports that he hit the ball quite solidly and had his first ever eagle on the 16th hole. He also had 2 wipes in his round. Thanks for the report Steve.

C grade winner: Peter Davis [28] 36pts

Guzzlers Cup winner: Roscoe Hamer [22] 39 pts

Bradmans: A-Gary Buckley         B- Allen Foster     C- Glen Blades

Drive & Pitch: Mark McSwinney [9th]

NTP’s: 6-Shane Thorn, 14-Mick McCarney, 17-Shane Thorn

7-APR-2019: PFA CUP-REVESBY WORKERS V GOULBURN WORKERS

The much anticipated annual PFA Cup interclub challenge between Revesby Workers and Goulburn Workers was held today at Camden GC.

The PFA Cup has been contested by these two clubs for over 10 years now and the fun and friendly banter gets better and better every time we meet.

The match is a single stableford event and the winning team is determined by dividing the aggregate score from each team by the numbers from each side to find the winning average team score. The best average score will win the event but unlike in most competitions, the loser actually gets to take the trophy home. Just one look at it and you will know why.

13  sleep deprived players from Goulburn Workers arrived at the course after having to get up at 4am to do battle  against 21 Revesby boys wanting to reverse the previous year’s result when Goulburn played out of their skins to defeat them.

The course this morning was barely visible due to the thick fog blanketing it  and the greens had recently been cored leaving them very patchy and  slow. The rules of the day were preferred lies through the green due to the longer than usual rough and with all of the groups sorted by captain Joy, it was game on.

With the game over, it was time to relax over a subsidised lunch and an open bar for all to enjoy. Whilst all of that was going on, the two club captains were hard at work processing all of the data that would determine today’s winners and more importantly , the losing trophy recipients.

After much deliberation, it was announced that Revesby had defeated Goulburn with an average score of 35.14 pts to 32.18pts and Revesby President John Varrica wasted no time presenting the Pigs Arse Trophy to Goulburn captain Craig Brown.

There were sum notable performances on both sides with the best being Allen Foster who had and absolute blinder to shoot Revesby’s best score with 45 pts. Allen reports that he had 21 pts on the front nine and 24 on the back. His only indiscretions were a wipe on the 1st hole after losing his tee shot and a poor chip on the 3rd for one point. He was mostly to the right this game and his usual draw was not prevalent for some reason.  He recovered well though and also had 7 greens in regulation, 9 pars with a birdie on the D&T 12th after missing his eagle putt from 8 feet. He got his short irons closer to the pins and only had 32 putts. Even though the preferred lies helped, he says that it is the best he has played since joining our club. Well played Allen.

The best score for Goulburn was shot by their club captain Craig Brown  on 43 pts. Craig plays with clubs that must be some 30 years old and containing a driver as big as most 5 woods today. The funny thing is that he hits it quite amazingly and not too far behind most people hitting drivers. His putting was on fire with the short stick delivering 10 one putt greens but the key to his successful round was actually many of the rocks which adorn parts of the course. On several occasions, Craig was headed for disaster with his ball landing in rockeries around  many parts of the course only to see it ricochet either back on to the fairway or on the green. This prompted Johnny V to give him the new nick name of “Rocky Road”. A great score for a top bloke.

The runner up for Revesby was the Prez John Varrica with a very unexpected score of 43 pts. John had worked until 8pm the previous night and arrived at the course shattered and in pain. He had predicted that he would surely be wearing the rabbits ears today. John wiped the first two holes and it seemed that his prediction would come true. Having hit so many shots on those first two holes must have loosened something up in John’s body because he proceeded to go around in even par for the remaining 16 holes which included two birdies and an eagle 2 on the short par 4 12th hole. The score could have been even better had he not lipped out on three other occasions. It was a “Joy” to play with our captain and Craig Brown and Marty Hunter from Goulburn with the great company helping John to relax and enjoy the round.

The runner up from Goulburn was Norm McInnes with a fine round of 40 pts. Unfortunately we do not have a report on how he played but I can tell you that he was quite chuffed at receiving $40 from Revesby and $25 from Goulburn for his days work. Well done Norm.

The Guzzler’s Cup was won by Phil White with a score of 40 pts  c/b and this was his second guzzlers win in a row. Phil reports that he started with 2 one pointers due to poor drives and finished the first nine holes after hitting driver on to the par 3 9th and just missing the ntp by a foot and also lipping out for a par and an uninspiring 17 pts. He drove weel on the back for a 2 over par 23 pts and missing many birdie putts. He must admit that the self proclaimed best putter in the club (George) both helped and hindered him. All in all he had a lovely day beating Gary and pommy Rob by a street after giving them 4 pts start at the break. He thanks Gary Privette for the halfway snack of Goulburn chicken and the never ending camaraderie that they share.

The Revesby Bradman was Joy Mesuria with a rather uninspiring 25 pts. Joy played army golf today going left right left and not having much luck at all. Joy did however do a great job of marshalling the groups in the morning for which we thank him.

All in all it was another successful get together with our friends from Goulburn. We thank them for the effort to get to the course so early and for being such great sports and good friends.

Many thanks go to Goulburn president Gary Privette for organising and submitting his team details and to Craig Brown for his role in assisiting with the presentation.

From Revesby we thank Noel Connolly for organising the dry till at the bar, Kenny Harris for clling out the groups in the morning, Matt Campbell for sorting the score cards and Joy Mesiria for his unenviable job of running the show.

Also a big thanks to the members of both clubs for making this event such great fun.

31-MAR-2019: ANTILL PARK-2BAL AGG

WINNERS: TERRY COLEMAN & MATT CAMPBELL 77 POINTS

The wind cheaters were out in force for this visit to Antill Park as the temperature took a nose dive  overnight. The breeze had a bit of a bite to it and eventually turned into a a strongish wind towards the middle of the round. The course was in good condition and thankfully the greens had not been cored and were fairly fast.

With the seriousness of the recent club championships out of the way, it was time to have some fun again by teaming up with a partner and hoping that your combined scores would be good enough to triumph over the rest of the field. Play was extremely slow due to another social club playing before us.

With all the players in the clubhouse and the cards checked by the club captain Joy, it was time to announce the winners and losers.

The outright winners were Terry Coleman & Mathew Campbell with an amazing score of 77 pts.  Matt had just come off a Bradmans performance the week before and was fortunate to draw Terry who has been on fire so far this year. Funny enough, it was Matt that shone in this group today by shooting an outstanding round of 42 points on his own.

Matt reports “Our games were helped by playing on a course in great condition especially the top greens in comparison to last week and managing the windy conditions. Terry played his usual game driving long and straight followed by good iron shots into greens all day and  putting steadily for 35 points. I had my best driving round of the year. Drove it very long of the tee with some accurate approach shots and also stayed out of trouble. A good front nine of 19 points and finished with an excellent 23 points on the back nine  for a satisfying round of 42 points”.

The runners up were Shane Thorn and Allen Foster with a good score of 73 points. Don’t know who did what as no reports were submitted to the scribe.

Oh hang on, Shane did send something through. He reports that the reason for their win was ” Because someone didn’t strip down”.

Yeah right Shane. Get off the weed man!!!!!!!!

The Guzzlers were George Lattouf & Phil White with another good score of 72 points C/B. I’ve never seen George so happy because he was of the belief that he could hit everyone up for a free drink the next week at the Pig’s Arse Cup against Goulburn Workers. He looked a little deflated when told that there would be an open bar that week and drinks would be free anyway.

On the golf front George reported ” I was magnificent because I drove well but the clincher was the extremely accurate 3 wood approach shots into holes 12, 3 & 4. They all landed on the greens creating birdie opportunities”.

As usual, there was no mention of how his partner  played so will will assume that Phil did most of the work.

The Bradmans were Steph Suzor & Mick McCarney with an rather embarrassing score of 50 points. Understandably, no report was submitted by either of the pair.

As the scribe cannot be everywhere during a round, he relies on the members to inform him of any peculiar happenings on the course that might be worthy of reporting.

This week however, I was fortunate enough to be in a group where one player enjoyed a very eventful day. That player was Johnny Mac and he had us in stitches for most of the round. There were a few incidents so I will put them in point form.

  1. Standing on the first tee and looking at a 165 mtr par 3 to start with, Johnny pull out his trusty 3 wood and with 20 or so people watching him, he proceeded to take an almighty swing but failed to connect with the ball. That’s right, an air swing which had many members rolling around in fits of laughter.
  2. Johnny composed himself after that air swing an teed the ball up for his 3rd shot and this time connected. Only problem was that he drove it into the dam on the left of the fairway. Needless to say that he wiped that hole even with his two shot start on it.
  3. On the fourth hole, Johnny drove his ball into the tree line on the right of the fairway. He then chipped out to a safe distance from the green which is guarded by a dam in front of it. Unfortunately he hit his approach a little heavy and it fell into the dam ending up just in inch in the water. Johnny decided to have a go at extracting his ball from the water and against all advice, he did not remove his shirt. Well you guessed it, he ended up looking like the creature from the black lagoon with mud all over him.
  4. On the very next hole being the par 3 5th, Johnny ball once again failed to stay dry. This time he actually made it over the water only to see it roll back into the dam. Again it was just in the water and this time to the shock horror of his playing partners, he took of his shirt and played a good shot to get out. The ducks in the pond will be scarred for a long time to come.
