Camden Cup Report

Our number one men's event for the year, the Camden Cup, a Vardon Event, was played last Saturday in wonderful conditions - a delightful day, and the course in outstanding order.

Congratulations must go to Justin Bradbury and his team for the manner in which the course was presented, with many positive comments from visiting players.

For quite some time it appeared that a local was going to be crowned as champion, with Michael Bell in the clubhouse at 1 under par 70, leading the field by two strokes. However, with only a few groups left to complete their round, an excellent score of 3 under par 68 was completed by Colin Mitchell from Links Shell Cove, relegating Michael to the runner up position.

Players from Twin Creeks, New South Wales, and Stonecutters Ridge filled the other scratch leading positions.

Luke Campbell (7) nett 68 and Richard Stomber (10) nett 69, both from Camden, won the nett prizes for the day.  Well done!

Great organisation by Stuart Meani and his team, with Paul Meani on the first tee directing traffic.  Thank you to Ron Dewar and his helpers with moving the field along at a golf pace.

Many thanks also to our sponsors for this event, Peter Nonnenmacher (HILLROSS) and Andrew Moyle (TLD Logistics) who allowed us to offer such excellent prizes that the quality and size of the field was once again very strong.  43 players with a handicap of 2 or lower (up to plus 3) indicates a desire for quality golfers around the Sydney area to play our course.

Ladies Pennant Report (with Shelley Chapman)

Round 2

Round 2 of the ladies pennants was at home against Camden Lakeside.  We knew they were going to be a tough team to beat, however our ladies stayed strong and came away with a 4-1 win!  

The individual match results are as follows:

  • Wanda Kozinski - WON 4 & 3
  • Mindy Ross - WON 1 up (Mindy trailed the duration of the game, but that doesn't mean anything when you can come from behind to get the win!)
  • Maria Thorn - WON 2 & 1
  • Kerry Cahill - LOST 3 & 1
  • Janice Turner - WON 2 & 1
This win puts us at the top of the leaderboard.

Well Done Ladies!

Shelley Chapman, reporting.

Sharp / Turner Match Play Final

The final of this event was played last Saturday week.  The favourites coming into the final didn't let their supporters down, with a comprehensive victory.  For the older folks especially, the result was 'trombones', (7 and 6).  Well done Shelley Chapman and Wanda Kozinski on a very
impressive birdie blitz.  Poor Lyn Bullock and Jacky Matheson were left wondering what they could do to get back into the game, but to no avail.

Masters Pennant Report

What a beautiful day last Sunday was. Warm/hot, no wind, perfect golf course, great scoring conditions.  Unfortunately, that is the end of the good news.

The bad news was a very heavy loss (12.5 to 2.5) away from home to a very talented Penrith team. Still missing Chris Zanoni through injury, our team has struggled to compete against opposing players with handicaps significantly less than ours.  A great effort by Neale Besgrove to halve his match, and a close finish on the last for Peter N.  Another loss of the toss resulted in a heavy fine ($2) for the captain (that's 3 from 3), while our number 4 was unfortunately not fully zipped up prior to walking onto the first tee, resulting in a further $5 'fine'.  Managers, Brian and Raymondo will need to find a magic potion to get our team ready for next week's match against the leaders, Glenmore, at Glenmore. 

Individual results:

  • Greg Matheson- 3/1 win
  • Bill Bell - 6/5 loss
  • Neville Hoskins - 4/3 loss
  • Joe Smuk - 6/5 loss
  • Peter Nonnenmacher - 2 down loss
  • Bob Zelesco - 5/4 loss
  • Gary Hunt - 4/2 loss
  • Neale Besgrove - square

Course Superintendent's Report

  • Overall condition of greens is in a good place.  We continue to head in the right direction with our overall long term goals and objectives.
  • Over 200 plugs have been put into areas on greens where needed over recent weeks including just on 100 into the 18th green alone.  This will be ongoing over the next 2-3 months.
  • Small voids of greens have continued to receive a light top-dress by hand to assist with in filling, particularly where we have had good success with seed germination.
  • All greens were 8mm solid tined (20/5 & 21/5).  This is an ongoing monthly maintenance practice.
