JUNE 2016

 

‘Tempus fugit’ – or, for those of us who don’t speak Latin … Time flies! Where did the first half of 2016 get to?

June began with the Bendigo Bank monthly medal, also incorporating the 4th round of the Golf NSW medal and the shootout, so a lot to play for each month – no pressure!
Division 1 winner was Karen Myles, for Division 2 Maureen Muncey and Rhonda Barron came up trumps for Division 3. Well played to these women.


Pennants on Monday 6th was a complete washout, thanks to the atrocious ‘east coast low’ that hit NSW that weekend. We have one more round to play, but, unfortunately despite the tremendous enthusiasm and effort by all our players no trophies for Everglades this year.


Halfway through the month we played a par and 2ball vs par game which was also a qualifier for the GOLF NSW Fourball Championship, terrific play by Kaye Mckay and Judy Andrews will see them representing Everglades in the final, played at Shelly Beach in October. The individual division winners on the day were – Kaye McKay, Mon Capitan and Cathy Byrne.

I think the following will resonate with all of our members, and thank you to Ann Woods for sending it on:-
A Group of Girlfriends

A group of girlfriends, all age 40, discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the waiters there had tight pants and nice buns.
10 years later, at age 50, the friends once again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Ocean View restaurant, because the food was good and the wine selection was excellent.
10 years later, at age 60, the friends again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Ocean View restaurant, because they could dine in peace and quiet and the restaurant had a beautiful view of the ocean.
10 years later, at age 70, the friends discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Ocean View restaurant, because the restaurant was wheelchair accessible and had an elevator.
10 years later, at 80 years of age, the friends again discussed where they should meet for lunch. Finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Ocean View restaurant, because they had never been there before.

Enjoy your friends and your golf.

PINK RIBBON DAY – Thurday 15 October

What a perfectly pink day, the weather, the course and the players were all looking just gorgeous, as was our sponsor Leigh Morris (that’s coming from his mother). There were 22 teams of four trialling a new format… 3 scores for par 5’s, 2 scores for par 4’s and 1 score for par 3’s the game proved to be very popular and kept all competitors involved throughout the game. Leigh Morris from Sydney Financial Services sponsored the day to the tune of $200 and also attended presentation to give his congratulations and kisses to all the winners. If you, your family or friends are looking for any financial advice, consider giving Leigh a call he would be only too happy to assist.

To maximise the fund raising for Breast Cancer Research on this day the Committee ran a special Raffle which raised $510 thanks to Heather Burrett who did an excellent job selling tickets to everyone who looked her way. There was also the sale of Pink Ribbon’s to use on course which raised around $120 although the final tally has yet to be calculated it is expected it should match last year’s donation of $1000. Thank you all for your continued generosity towards our Club’s fund raising efforts, well done, we could not contribute without you!
