Spring has sprung and so has the Competition golf bug! It’s Finally escaped the confinements of the Covid cage and is doing cartwheels around the course. Oh what a course! It’s shining brightly, manicured to perfection just waiting the return of the competition golf Bug, who by the way is just itching to try and defeat the poor unsuspecting golfer. You know the one who thinks he or she is just getting it right, feeling smug. Guess again. Poof the bug whisks it all away bringing back the humble. The bug knows to well that we will have to come back again, the disease having taken hold deep down in the soul. We will get it right one day!
The girls not being deterred by lockdown or the weather not always being favourable have continued their practice sessions and are coming along in leaps and bounds loving their golf much to the bugs delight. Social golf has also attracted many on Wednesday and Saturdays honing their skills, just enjoying the time out strictly all under the rules of Covid. We have forgotten what most of us look like apart from the eyes but a small price to pay for the safety of us all.
So I am delighted to report the results from our first day of competition for some time. Although the weather was not the best , the sky sprung a leak a time or two, a field of seven for 18 holes and another two for nine took to the course for another monthly medal battle. Today consistent Vicki Clements (25) had the goods. Coming in with a nett 72 also managing a gobbler and a birdie! Clever girl!!!! The putting had Miranda Gill and Di Holdsworth a tie 32 putts. The 9 hole girls Helen Burnett pipped Robyn Parsons on the day. Well done girls great to see you having a go.
GET INTO GOLF FOR WOMEN! A programme for women who are total novices is currently in the making. The programme will be run for 6 weeks. One evening a week starting in October dates yet to be finalised. So for those who may want to come along, or know of someone that would be interested in getting bitten by the bug WATCH THIS SPACE !!!!!!!!!! or feel free to contact our Captain Doreen Lehmann 0414 617 972. So happy to be back reporting. GREAT GOLFING EVERYONE!!! Hopefully soon we will be able to socialise like we used too!
