Major events this month include the CP Healey/Father-Son 4BBB Stableford, Premier League Final and Dinner and WE Stokes 36 hole Mixed Foursomes, so check carefully please. The July Syllabus can be found below.

Captain's Report - June 2017

*Course Design Plan – The Match Committee have had a course inspection of the West course and are putting some ideas together to take to the Greens Committee.

*Course inspection - The Ladies captain Dale Haw, Course Super-intendant Andrew Johnson and I are having a course inspection each month. A result of our first meeting was the removal of most of the blue drop zones on the front West. The areas are now suitable to play off and trees which need protection will be staked. When new scorecards are printed it will make mention that all distance markers will be immovable obstructions – so 150m markers and trees will not be staked.

*Irrigation Works - There are some works on the front West occurring which is an update to the watering system. Trenching work is marked by white lines.

*Winter Pennant – The first round is Sunday June 18th and it runs for six weeks. Dean Jacobs will captain Division 1, I will captain Division 2, Simon Putna division 4 and Ross Taylor Division 6. Thank-you to Mawson’s Concrete who have come on board as a major sponsor for the next three years and NATRAD and Deni Fire Service for their continued sponsorship. We will buy new uniforms in time for our Summer Pennant Team.

*Sunday Socialites – I played in my first one and I must say the Putna’s and Jenkinson’s are doing a great job promoting this Sunday “funday” event. The next one on July 9th is an afternoon hit-off and roast tea.

*Feedback – If you don’t tell us we don’t know, so anything you want to tell us about Men’s Golf please look for a black and white shirt or drop into the Duty Room from 4.30pm on a Comp. day.

*Scorecards – when submitting cards please make sure they are SIGNED and SAVED on the computer so that your score counts.

*Course Welfare – please replace divots, fix pitch marks, rake the bunkers and put the rakes in the middle of the bunker parallel to the fairway, and ask your fellow golfers to do the same.

Good hitting,
David Pearson.

Plus 3 was the preferred score in B Grade with a countback needed to separate Pennant Captain Ross Taylor from Jack Crawford and Brett Vincent. Rob Merlo had the score of the day to claim the C Grade honours from Clarke Taylor and Andrew Beaumont.

Premier League
It is the first round of the finals next week with two qualifying and two elimination finals on the agenda. The Grand Final and dinner are on Saturday July 29th. It has been a great season, not unlike the AFL, with close results, upsets and some teams unlucky to miss the finals. Dimple Balls have lead the competition all season and I will wait until the pressure really mounts before I pick against the old Fockers team. They will beat Mixed Bag and go into the Prelim Final. Reluctant Heroes are determined to erase the Grand Final memories of last year and I expect them to beat the Grandads +1 and go into the Prelim Final as well. In the two knockout finals new team Hakkas will take out Chubbs Peterson and in an interesting match the Cinderella Boys, with those bright shirts, will take down the Proshop team Weapons of Grass Destruction.
