Club Foursomes Championship Report

Club Foursomes Championship Report

Over the past two Saturdays, players have competed in this most difficult of events, particularly on the second Saturday when windy conditions made the course very difficult indeed. 

Congratulations to all those who completed the two days.  As usual, there were many competitors, but few winners.

Some of the results were very close.  In some cases, three or four teams were within a stroke or two, with count backs determining places.

A full list of results for all grades can be found on our Club website under Golf Club/Competition Results/Major Events.

Ladies Foursomes Championships Report

We have completed another successful year of foursomes championships.  We had two very different Saturdays.  The weather on the first round was beautiful sunny skies.  The second round was howling winds and very cold.  But we did love the variety of beanies keeping our heads warm. 

We love foursomes!  It's the game where you play the ball from places on the course that you have never seen before (and still remain friends with your partner at the end of the day).  

Don't you love all the stories you hear from different pairs.  

An interesting observation that was made when all the results were finalised.   All players in Division 2 played better in the second round when it was windy and cold.  So obviously Division 2 don't like calm warm days to play golf!

Congratulations to Shelley Chapman and Candice Bell who are our 2019 Ladies Foursomes Champions.

Super Seniors Pennants Report 

12th August 2019 @ Kareela

Super Senior Pennants started last Monday at Camden Golf Club. 

We hosted the event and was able to review the some of the players from the other 6 teams which play in our division.

Today saw us travelling to Kareela Golf Club, where we played The Grange in a hard-fought competition.  

In the past several years The Grange has been somewhat lacking in players with low handicaps.  This year saw four players reach the 65-year-old mark and thus were eligible to play Super Seniors.   All of those players had a handicap below their number 1 and 2 players from last year.
Camden also picked up several new players but not with the same result as did The Grange.  However, the game today did see some good results, some very close results and some struggles in trying to overcome a good team. 

The results were 4 games each.  Several games could have been a win but the fate of good fortune was not with us today.

Next we play Port Kembla at the Grange.  This team was the Divisional winner last year.
On a different note I would like to thank our Sponsor Gary Campbell (Campbelltown Coolrooms) who has been supporting the Super Seniors for many years.  Many thanks Gary.

10th Tee Development

The new 10th tee will commence work on Thursday this week.  Members have probably noticed the temporary tee box that will be used for approximately two (2) months during construction.  We are hoping the turf will last the distance on the temporary in front of the regular tee.  At some point, work will disrupt the entry toward the tee area and members and visitors will need to follow directional signs so as not to enter the construction area.

Volunteers Report

June activity for Vols was limited due to Queen's Birthday Holiday (a little inconvenient falling on a Monday, Your Majesty!) and the US Golf Open Day (a great day and terrific turnout for the Club), etc. before we knew it, the month had gone!

Our Team for July:  Ken Bellman, Gordy Bray, Frank Cahill, Bob Gray, Peter Tanner, Terry Hughes, Peter Legge and Brian Thorn.
