JUNE 2017

After all the excitement of Championships and the Presentation lunch, this month we had the great pleasure of presenting a cheque for $4000 to our charity, The Shirley Shuttle, made up to that amount by the donation of $500 from the Country Club. Pam Warton accepted the cheque on behalf of the organisation, which was bought to our attention by one of our long standing members, Colleen Guy who has been using this service over many of the past months, for transportation to treatment centres and specialist appointments.

This month the Club Medals were won by Patsy Elliott in division 1 (77 c/b) followed hot on her heels by Heather Burrett. Division 2 saw a very excited Jan Weiley on the microphone after winning her first medal (71), with Marg Hockley as runner up. Susan Bourne was top of the leaderboard in 3rd Division (71),with her good mate Carmel Brown the next place getter.  Also, this month we had a Par and 2B Par event, with Trish Melnik winning Division 1, Judy Andrews Division 2, and Lynette Magill Division 3. Irene Hyland and Jill Fraser won the 2B.

At the time of writing, we are up to the third round of the 2B Knockout, so good golfing to all participants.

The final day of the Interclub Matchplay had Everglades in with a chance to win the season, however this was not to be, and we were pipped at the post by Morisset , who also took out the Margin Shield. Congratulations to Morisset and also to all our women who competed so sportingly in their matches. Next year!

Next on our calendar is our Day of Golf on the 11th July, – the Everglades Salver, Bowl and Longmarkers Cup, sponsored by the House of Beauty at Woy Woy. Hopefully all your entries are in by now. Also, it’s now time for teams to be thinking about fabulous costumes for Xmas in July Mufti Day on July 27th – get sewing ladies!

Enjoy your golf and, appreciate your friendships.

NOVEMBER 2016

November, and we’re now at the pointy end of 2016 (remember when we were kids, and a year seemed to last forever!), the continuous competition has finished and the Summer Cup has commenced.

The Vets Closing Day was held in, thankfully fine weather and was enjoyed by all, President Donna and the committee did a bang up job with the lunch and presentation of the prizes.
Congratulations to a very happy June Cooper, winner over the field. The age winners were young Di Voss in the Over 50’s, Gwen Gray Over 60’s, Irene Hyland Over 70’s and, a very young at heart Lorna Turner for the Over 80’s.

The course was a delightful sea of various shades of pink for our Pink Ribbon Day, one of the special days on our calendar. The four person ambrose, plus the pink survival ball made for a truly fun game and day. Thank also to Ann Kane for the effort she put in making decorations outside the proshop area. Feeling in the ‘pink’ were the winners Karen Myles, Maria McCarthy, Rhonda Wright and Marilyn McAlpine, followed in a very close second by Ann Radford, Margie Moxham, Sylvia Saunders and Yvonne Kerkin, and hot on their heels were Judy Andrews, Nelly Szelid, Judy Hocking and Caro Roope in 3rd place, with Sandy King, Lorraine George, Ros Ross and Dr Helena taking out 4th.

There have been a couple of tournaments played recently that our women have featured in, notably at the Women’s Country Meeting, Lyn McMurray was the Division One overall nett winner – atta girl! Also, the CCWGA Annual Tournament was held over two days at Toukley and Gosford with a large field of players, and our women again making their mark. Congratulations to Jan Monty who was the runner up for Division 3 in the 36 hole open championship, followed by Norma Harris in 3rd place and Cathy Byrne in 6th. Norma and Cathy also came 2nd in the 2B Aggregate.
In the Monday 18 hole Stroke event, Ann Kane for Division 2 was successful in winning the day, and Cathy Byrne in Division 3 Stableford gaining 3rd place, Cathy and Norma again featured in the 18hole 2B Aggregate with a win. Tuesday’s 18 hole event reaped successes also, with Jan Monty winning Division 3, and also runners up along with Margaret Coutts in the 2B Aggregate. Super play from our Everglades girls, and I’m sure they all have ‘lovely’ days.

Closing Day is coming up on the 24th, wear something ‘Christmassy’ if the mood grabs you. As this is also our final weekly presentation, there will be Christmas cheer in the form of bubbly and cake.

As always, our members and their families who have health issues are in our thoughts.
