The Arthur Brassey Singles Handicap Knockout draw is in the Pro Shop with entries closing on Wednesday 01/02/17. The draw will be done as soon as possible there-after with the 1st and 2nd rounds to be completed by 08/03/17. As this is a handicap event, this is your chance for those members who qualify, to win a trophy.
As all members will have realised from reading of the 2017 Members Handbook and looking at the Club Calendar, many of our trophy rounds this year have been either brought forward or have been delayed to ensure they are played outside winter, in the best conditions possible. Accordingly, the qualifying round of this years men's Foursome Championship and Patrons Trophy will be played on Saturday 11th February. As this is a Championship event no other game will be included as an alternative on the day. Would all members please note that bookings are through the computer in pairs and are now open. Please contact your playing partner and arrange a suitable time to compete. You must play in two teams of two, as it is a requirement of the Conditions of Competition, copy attached and on notice boards, that there is an independent marker of your card. We encourage all members to play in the Championship, with the top 8 teams with the best scratch scores, going through to match play, with the final, 36 holes, on Sunday 2nd April 2017. The best net score will win the Patron's Trophy on the day. For those members not familiar or are nervous at the prospect of playing in this event, there is a practice round on the preceding Wednesday with an American Foursomes event. Good luck to all.
ON Saturday, after early golf, my partners and myself retired to the members room for the obligatory drink. As it was lunch time, we glanced at the specials board behind the bar and noticed a Chorizo Hot Dog with Caramelised Onions and sauces, complimented with a cup of chips, on special for $14.50. After savouring this delight, I can tell you it is the best Hot Dog I have ever eaten and the Chef, Regina, should be congratulate on the quality and presentation of the meal. Members are encouraged to use the kitchen as that is the only way it can survive.
On Wednesday December 21st, just in time for Christmas, Piero Dal Bianco hit off on the 11th tee not knowing that this would be one on the most memorable days of his life. As many aging golfers have a "Bucket List" including a Hole in One and never achieve that thrill, imagine how Piero felt as the ball rolled into the hole. Piero is welcomed to the elite group of players who have achieved this feat and he will have his name inscribed on the "Hole in One" Board in the members room. The Captain presented Piero with the "Hole in One" tie as a memento of the occasion. Our pictures show Piero with a smile befitting a winner and in the back ground, his practice balls surrounding the flag. Members should take note, the more you practice the luckier you get. Piero was unaware of the tradition of a bottle of Scotch on the Bar and will donate a bottle this Saturday so members can help him celebrate the event. Well done Piero.
