January          Unfortunately, our 1st game for 2022 on 7th January was a wash out. A few brave souls turned up but were not game enough to challenge the rain………except for yours truly. Myself, my son and a mate of his gave it a go but called it quits after 14 holes because we were like “drowned rats”. NEXT GAME: Friday 4th FEBRUARY will be a Stableford event at Boomerang Golf Course with the 1st group to tee-off at 8.00am. This photo records that Gordon did play golf, or at least he hit off from the first tee. ------------------------------------------------ 1. Paddy has been slicing of the tee on every hole. He asks Mick his Irish caddy if he has noticed any obvious reasons for his poor tee shots. Mick the caddy replies, aye, there’s a piece of crap on the end of your driver. So Paddy picks up his driver and cleans the clubface at which point Mick the caddy says….. No Paddy, the other end. 2. A golfer teed up his ball on the 1st tee, took a mighty swing and hit his ball into a clump of trees. He found his ball and saw an opening between two trees and thought he could hit through them. Taking out his 3 wood, he took another mighty swing. The ball hit one of the trees, bounced back and hit him in the forehead killing him instantly. As he approached the gates of heaven, St Peter asked….Are you a good golfer? The man replied…….Got here in two didn’t I

our next game. NEXT GAME: Friday 1st JULY will be a Stableford event at Boomerang Golf Course with the 1st group to tee-off at 8.00am. 
July  We finally got to have a game at Boomerang Golf Course on the 1st of July with 8 wonderful guys
turning up on a slightly overcast morning. I had booked for 11 starters (8 carters and 3 walkers).
However, the 3 walkers did not turn up because they thought it was going to rain. Please take note
Bunker Brown, Pretty Boy Ireson and Flapper Ireson. Hopefully the course will be playable for both
“Walkers” and “Carters” for our next game. Results were: Winner Gordon Scott with 29 points, 2nd
Bruce Magee with 27 points and 3rd Phil Bond with 25 points. Nearest the pins went to Kevin Price
and Gordon Scott, while the 2 drive & pitch holes went to Bruce Magee and Gordon Scott. Thanks
to everyone for an enjoyable day. NEXT GAME: Friday 5th AUGUST will be a Stableford event at Boomerang Golf Course with the 1st group to tee-off at 8.00am.
August  Our July game did not eventuate as Boomerang Golf Course was not playable due to soggy
conditions after more rain had closed the course for the two weeks previous. NEXT GAME: Friday 2nd September will be a Stableford event at Boomerang Golf Course with the 1st group to tee-off at 8.00am. 
September  We were finally able to get a game at Boomerang on 2nd September after the rain finally subsided.
Although it was a bit on the chilly side the course was finally starting to dry out. Due to ill health
and the Annual Probus Holiday to Lightning Ridge, there were only 7 starters. The winner on the
day was Bruce Magee (40 points) from Paul Copland (28 points) and Keith Hughes (26 points).
Nearest the pins went to Jeff Ireson and Keith Hughes, while the drive & pitch went to
Gordon Scott. NEXT GAME: Friday 7th OCTOBER will be a Stableford event at Boomerang Golf Course with

December We had 10 players for our game on 2nd December and welcomed our newest recruit Gordon Cooper. The weather was a bit overcast at the start with the course in good condition. Kevin Price won the day on a countback from Gordon Scott with Keith Hughes finishing third. Nearest the pins were won by Phil Bond and Kevin Price, while Keith Hughes and Gordon Scott won the Drive & Pitches.
