January Our January game was played in lovely weather with a good attendance of 14 players. Grahame Edwards won the day (again) with 36 Stableford points on a countback from Bruce Magee with Clem Hefferman 3rd on 32 points

Nearest the pins were won by Max Harry (2), Gordon Scott, Aub Smith and Keith Ireson.

Editor’s note: I have it on good authority that prior to the game both Grahame and Bruce were seen in furtive earnest conversation with the handicapper, who it must be said, bears a remarkable resemblance to the moustachioed cartoon villain “Oilcan Harry”. A plain brown paper bag was also present. I draw no conclusions whatever!! 

February February’s game saw a field of 13   players tee off in dense fog which luckily cleared after we had played five holes, but then a really strong southerly buster hit which made things very interesting.  

 In 1st place was Clem Heffernan (playing off a handicap of 7) with 31 Stableford points. Neil Dibley was 2nd with 29 points on a countback from Gordon Scott 3rd.

 Nearest the pins were won by Aub Smith (a wonderful instinctive shot seeing as the flag was not visible through fog) and Gordon Scott (2)

 Next game – Friday 1st March, 2013 at Boomerang Golf Course – tee off at 8.00 am so why not come along and enjoy a great day out.

Nearest the pins were won by Barry Brown (2), Aub Smith and Keith Ireson. 

Thursday 5th September - I have received a letter from Gunnamatta Probus Club informing me that the Annual Shire Probus Golf Day will be held at Woolooware golf Course. Some food will be available before the game and a sit-down buffet meal after the game. The cost is good value at $50 and a limited number of carts will be available. There will be a shot-gun start at 8.00 a.m. and it is always a good day.
