7-7-2021: Executive Committee update due to extension of Greater Sydney lockdown.
The NSW government today announced an extension of the current lockdown to Friday 16/7. On top of this, 3 council areas being Canterbury Bankstown, Liverpool and Fairfield were named as areas of concern or hotspots and residents have been instructed to limit their travel outside these areas, stay home and only go out for essential purposes.
In light of this,the Executive Committee have unanimously decided to cancel our booking at Antill Pk this Sunday as only a handful of members would be eligible to play and also did not want to bear the responsibility of advising otherwise and risk having people fined for travelling outside the mentioned hotspots. Players wanting to try and play should make their own arrangements.
The next game is scheduled for Calderwood on 18/7 and again we will not be able to confirm anything until next week when the health orders are updated by the NSW Govt.
Once again and until then we ask the members to be patient and we promise that as soon as we know anything we will let you know.
Stay safe,
The Executive Committee.
7-7-2021: Executive Committee update due to extension of Greater Sydney lockdown.
Dear members, as you may or may not have heard, the Sydney lockdown has been extended until 16/7. Also, orders have been announced that people in the Canterbury Bankstown, Liverpool and Fairfield council areas must limit their travels and stay home except for absolute essential reasons. As this impacts a great deal of our members, the Executive Committee have been instructed to look into the matter further and discuss our position going forward. The committee will announce their decision later this evening. Until then please be patient and stay safe.
4-7-2021: UPDATE REGARDING SYDNEY LOCKDOWN AND ANTILL PK EVENT ON 11/7/21.
As aresult of the cancellation of the 1st rnd of the 4BBB Championship at Campbelltown Gc on 27/6/21, the committee had decided to reschedule this event to Antill Pk this coming Sunday. However due to the current Greater Sydney lockdown we have had to contact Antill pro shop for some clear advice about our booking. They responded today with this information for our members to digest before making their own decisions.
  1. Antill Pk will honour our booking whether the lockdown continues or is removed.
  2. If lockdown is still in place, carts will be limited to 1 per person but can carry 2 sets of clubs and max 2 carts in a group. Cost per cart will still be $40 per person. If no LD then carts as per normal and $40 twin share.
  3. We are able to travel to Antill Pk as the Wollondilly Shire is part of the Greater Sydney LGA.
After receiving this information, the committee has decided that should the lockdown be lifted, then the 1st Rnd of 4BBB Championship will be played but should the lockdown continue then the round may revert back to a normal single stableford event due to the carts issue and possible player reluctance to attend. Should the numbers not decrease and single carts are sufficient, then the 4BBB will be played with lockdown rules.
Below is the last posted booking sheet and we need to know if anyone would like to add their name to it or have it removed. This sheet is assuming that lockdown will be lifted and conditions will be as normal. Please also indicate if you require a cart.
If the lockdown is not lifted by Friday 9/7/21 we will repost the booking sheet and assess and notify you of the committees decision at that time as to how this event will be organised.
Thanking you once again for your patience and please stay safe.
26-6-2021: UPDATE REGARDING SYDNEY LOCKDOWN AND ANTILL PK EVENT ON 11/7/21.
Gentlemen a final message from our committee.
Similar to last year’s Sydney lockdown information received is that golf is allowed as its considered essential exercise. However, COVID restrictions must be adhered too. Outdoor groups up to a max of 10 and social distancing must be maintained. Therefore the Executive Committee has decided to cancel Revesby Men’s 4BBB matchplay event tomorrow. However our booking at Campbelltown remains if anyone wants to play social golf. No handicapping or points scores will occur. Campbelltown have not advised how carts will be managed. There may be only one person to a cart. All at your own risk.
26-6-2021:Update regarding current lockdown in Sydney and tomorrow’s event.
To date, our committee members have been trying to contact various organisations along with Campbelltown Golf Club regarding tomorrow’s event and we still have no clear advice from anyone as to whether we can play, what restrictions there will be and if we are even allowed to travel that far for golf.
In light of this we have given Campbelltown GC until 8pm to respond to us with information and a call will be made by the committee at this time as to whether we play or cancel.

13-6-2021: MACARTHUR GRANGE-SINGLE STABLEFORD

OUTRIGHT WINNER: STEVE VAUGHN [19] 42 POINTS

Another round completed today with 20 brave souls contesting Single Stableford at Macarthur Grange Golf Course.
A cold start was experienced and the temperature being 3.5 degrees, once the sun rose above the horizon we had a glorious 17 degrees.
Enough for the weather the scores today were below for most of the field with only 5 player equalling or bettering their handicap.
I believe many couldn’t feel their fingers initially.
Sometimes it’s better to be in the last group to avoid the cold.
The results are as follows.
Outright Winner Steve Vaughn 19 42pts
A Grade Winner Mark McSwiney 16 35 pts
B Grade Winner Cliff Bourquin 18 37 pts
C Grade Winner Pete Davis 25 37 pts
Guzzlers Cup Mitch Floyd 17 37 pts
A – Bradmans John Varrica 29
B – Bradmans Jay Krishna 22
C – Bradmans Luis Tasiaco 26
Congratulations to all winners and very well done Steve Vaughn and don’t worry the handicapper has caught up with him.
Thank goodness there were only 20 players.
The CCR was 36 today being the 3rd best score.
Next game is the Merv Pell at Dunheved hosted by Mounties.
I wish the 10 members representing Revesby all the best for next week and please bring home the trophy.

2021 Cypress Lakes Tour Results :
The 6th tour championship has been run and won and a great time had by all attending.
The weather was a little fresh at times and the golf course was terrific and at its challenging best and as usual we were looked after very well by the resort staff.
Before announcing the results, I’d like to thank the team of Claude Poletti, Steve Vaughn and Mark McDonald for their great work which ensured that the event ran like a well oiled machine.
The 2021 champion is John Varrica with a 3 round aggregate score of 115 points. John has worked hard to overcome his swing yips and is once again starting to see some good results.

RUNNER UP: MICHAEL KABALAN [112 PTS]

The runner up was Michael Kabalan who was attending his first tour shooting 112 points.

3RD PLACE: mARK McSWINEY [109 PTS]

In 3rd place was Mark McSwiney who led by 4 points coming into the last round but having too much of a great time didn’t agree with his golf and ultimately shot 109 pts.
Congratulations to all the other winners and to the entire group for the great camaraderie and for behaving themselves impeccably during the event.
There are too many results to write here so you can view them in the pictures below.

23-5-2021: 2BBB+2BBB CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP-THE RIDGE GC

2021 2BBB CHAMPIONS: J.KRISHNA & P.COLLINS [98 POINTS]

Gentlemen,

 

Another great day for golf was had by everyone with no rain and a moderate temperature of 21 degrees C.

I’m  sure there are many a tale to be told, some feats of brilliance and others of woe.

Irrespective of that we were able to complete the 2BBB Championship.

 

The handicaps on the cards were from the previous round and the Captain advised all groups the change to their handicaps to avoid confusion at the end of the round, this didn’t happen in all cases.

Unfortunately, the results announced at the course were incorrect and the daily handicap for some players has been corrected and cards stringently scrutinised and adjustments applied.

So, the final team scores and some individual scores have been corrected.

Please note the Championship handicap remains the same for both rounds.

The results will vary is some case from the Daily result and the Championship Result.

Apologises to the players affected by changes in the results.

The official results for today’s event are as follows.

2BBB RUNNERS UP: J.VARRICA & J.McDONALD 91 points

OUTRIGHT WINNERS: WAYNE COLEMAN & KEN TYNE 50 PTS

RUNNERS UP: MICHAEL KABALAN & SANTO SAMMARCO 49 PTS

BRADMANS: JOY MESURIA & GEORGE LATTOUF 36 PTS

Congratulations to Ken & Wayne a great performance and all other winners.

A special mention for John Varrica having a great individual score of 43 points, well done John.

The CCR for todays event was 37 and those who played well the handicapper has caught up with you.

Those played poorly today can look forward to the 4BBB Match Play 1st Round to redeem themselves.

The 2BBB Championship Final Results and seedings for the 4BBB Matchplay Championship shown below.

Congratulations to Pat Collins & Jay Krishna for taking out the 2021 2BBB Club Championship with an aggregate score of 98 points.
The surprise runners up were the underrated pairing of President John Varrica & Vice President John McDonald on 91 points.

Players who haven’t got a partner for the 4BBB Matchplay can seek a new partner but will be unseeded.

We understand not everyone can play all M/P games and if this is the case the partner can contest the event individually, if they win and their partner is available at the next round they resume as a team.

So any players who are changing partners please let the Handicapper or Captain know.

Finally signing off after 3 hours of scrutinising of today’s results.

16-5-2021: BRIGHTON LAKES-1ST RND 2BBB CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP

WINNERS: JAY KRISHNA & PAT COLLINS 48PTS

Gentlemen,

28 brave golfers ventured out on to Brighton Lakes Golf Course to contest the 2BBB Championship in chilly conditions.

The results reflect how difficult the course played, with only 5 players equalling or bettering their handicap.

The greens speed was very quick with many players struggling.

The latter part of the game saw a stiff breeze from the west blowing into players faces on the 17th and 18th tees making club selection quite difficult.

RUNNERS UP: CLAUDE POLETTI & STEVE VAUGHN 45PTS C/B

The speed of play by all Revesby members was very good and the social club who teed off before us were the cause for slow play.

The team results are very close with count backs for Runners Up position with 3 teams being on 45 points.

GUZZLERS CUP: IAN LINDBERG & GEORGE OSTERMAN 45PTS

Next week will be very interesting as we combat for the 2BBB Final round at The Ridge with several teams in contention.

Good luck everyone for next week, let’s hope there isn’t too much wind.

After the completion of the 1st Round of the 2BBB Championship the Outright Winners were Pat Collins and Jay Krishna with 48 points.

Congratulations to Pat & Jay.

All other results are as follows.

Next week is at The Ridge and I look forward to seeing everyone there and remember there a free BBQ after the game.

Signing off now.

11-5-2021: MATCH COMMITTEE COMMUNICATION TO MEMBERS:

Dear Members,

Further to the recent Match Committee meeting following several matters raised by our golfers at events and at our subsequent monthly meetings, the items listed below were discussed in detail and we hereby notify all members of such issues.

1. Cheating

  • We do not condone nor will we tolerate any form of cheating.
  • Anyone caught or reported as cheating will be required to front the Match Committee where disciplinary action may result.
  • The marker is responsible for ensuring that the rules of the game are being enforced and that the correct scores are recorded.
  • The markers should observe the players  they  are marking and not take for granted the scores that they are given and be diligent in their duty. It is OK to question a score or incident if you feel that what you have seen or been told is questionable. If you feel uncomfortable doing so you can make a note of it and then report it to the match committee.
  • Both player and marker must write down scores after each hole played. Also, scores must be reconciled after the 9th & 18th  holes. Cards are to be cross checked and signed at the completion of the round and not filled in or altered at the clubhouse.
  • We recommend that all golfers identify their ball title and number to their markers on commencement of the round. Should you lose your ball, you are required to identify your new ball.
  • Preferred lies if applicable should be no more that 15cm and no closer to the hole.
  • We suggest that golfers not carry extra balls in their pockets. If a situation arises where you are concerned about crossing hazards etc, and if you do bring a spare ball with you again you must inform your marker that you are doing so and again inform them of the title & number of the spare ball in case it is put into use.
  • The above also applies when playing a provisional ball.
  • The grounding of clubs in bunkers is not permitted and incurs a penalty. This is an existing rule and has not changed.
  • When marking balls on the green, your marker is to be placed behind the ball and not in front or to the side of the ball. Then when replacing the ball it should be placed in front of the marker.
  • When moving a NTP marker because it might be in your way, it is to be marked with a marker and you must not scratch the green with the metal spike.
  • The incorrect counting of strokes where penalties apply seems to be a common complaint.
  • If you have hit your ball into a hazard where the ball is unplayable you can take a drop at the nearest point of relief BUT THE DROP MUST BE COUNTED AS 1 STROKE AND ADDED TO THE SCORE. The only exception to this is if your ball ends up out of bounds or lost where the penalty is 1 stroke plus distance unless when the committee notifies that the Irish rule is in play for the day where it will be a 1 stroke penalty from the nearest point of relief on the fairway.
  • Example– Tee shot ends up unplayable (stroke 1) drop is taken (stroke 2) shot taken after drop also unplayable (stroke 3) another drop is taken (stroke 4) shot onto green (stroke 5) ball putted into hole (stroke 6) Final score on hole =6
  • You are not to move or promote your ball once it is in play ( unless you are preferring your lie or taking a drop)
  • Searching for lost balls should not take longer than 3 minutes and once you have given up your search your ball is declared  lost and a new ball is put into play. You can no longer play your original ball even if you then find it.

2. New  Club  Rule: ***NO GIMME PUTTS EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY***

After much discussion, the Match Committee has decided to abolish GIMME PUTTS effective immediately at all of our club games. This also applies for matchplay events where another competition is being played in conjunction. This rule is a result of the many complaints about players being too liberal with gimmes or picking up without being given the putt by their marker.

Misunderstood Rules 2019 Edition

  • The moving of impediments in bunkers and penalty areas is allowed. However, if you cause your ball to move then a penalty must be imposed and the ball replaced to its original position before playing your next shot.  You may ground your club in a penalty area except for bunkers.
  • If you accidentally cause your ball to move on the putting green it will not incur a  penalty but  the ball must be replaced to its original position before playing the next stroke otherwise it will incur a penalty of 1 stroke.  Should your ball move by itself there is no penalty and can be played from where it comes to rest.
  • If your golf ball accidently rebounds into you or hits your golfing equipment there is no penalty and the ball is played where it comes to rest.
  • Double hits do not incur a penalty and are treated as 1 stroke.

General Matters:

  • Blind Draws: The practise of blind draws will continue except for special events and players are reminded that it is the luck of the draw as to your position in the field so please do not complain if you happen to be in the last groups a few times.
  • Early Start Requests: Players needing to leave early must notify the captain at least 48 hours before and must arrive at the course early.
  • Bookings: When booking, please refrain from stipulating who you want to play with or who you are sharing a cart with. The Captain has the unenviable task of  sorting out many variables before events and it is at his absolute discretion as to whom you are paired with unless it is a advertised special event where you can pick your partners.
  • Whats App: The Whats App group is not for general chit chat between members or for posting things that you might find funny. It is a communication channel for important announcements by the committee to the members, for questions regarding events and for bookings only. Repeat offenders will be removed.

Thanking you for your time and attention.

The Match Committee.
