It was one of those glorious autumn Melbourne days – the sun was shining and it was a perfect golf day. We had four groups this year, down a bit on last year but a few people were going away, there were a few injuries, joint reconstructions, etc, to name a few reasons for apologies. And there were a few late comers who wanted to play but arrived after I’d confirmed with the course and prepaid.
Most of the regulars turned up with Jan Dirk, Lynne and Jim Holroyd, Rick Matthews and Damien Ryan attending for their first time. All names are drawn out of a hat/muesli bar box and we make sure there are males and females on all teams.
I think the good weather attributed to the good scores. The winning team of Jim Holroyd, Sabina Rosser, Rick Matthews and Liz Alcock came in with 71 points – thanks go to Jim, straight as a die Jim who hits well and straight down the fairway and when Rick hit the ball straight, it was huge. Watch out Pete next year, I think Rick might out-drive you. Runners up with 76 was Lynne Holroyd, Damien Ryan, Peter Woollard and Mick Culhane. Not far behind was Brenda, JD, John McGill and Tony Lukeman. It was unfortunate that we had a last minute cancellation which is always a bit of a shame because one team had to have three people, Harry Leggett, Kay Meadows and Bob Bean who did well considering, and had 83 points.
Thanks go to Amanda Wakeham, Julie Davis and Ian who fired up the bbq and started cooking the burgers and sausages for a hungry lot.
Many thanks also go to Chris Mazzotta from Troubleshooters who kindly donated a bag of goodies for the winners.
