Bring them all Together

Saturdays Ambrose round sponsored by South East Car Brokers was a success in many ways for those that attended. For one it attracted 65 players to the golf club who experienced the highs and lows of the great game, as they mixed in birdies with bogies, double bogies……..and pars! Players competed in Ambrose teams in great conditions and then returned to the clubhouse for a BBQ sponsored by South East Car Brokers.

Novita Fundraiser

The other major success was achieved through the fund raising activity for the Novita Charity, which services the needs of more than 3000 children right across South Australia, including families in Keith and the South East area, with a range of rehabilitation medical specialists, including paediatricians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech pathologists, psychologists, social workers, orthotists, rehabilitation engineers and dieticians. In November Alex Oliver, Michael Reid, Rodney Rowsell and Scott Vaughan will be embarking on the annual Mighty River Run, which takes up to 40 boats and their crews on a five-day trip along the Murray, and raises funds for the Novita Charity.

On Wednesday the Ladies turned out for the Stroke Round sponsored by Lyn Todd, which was played in cool conditions. Conditions were good for golf, with the greens continuing to be fast and challenging. Barb Little continued her recent good form to win the day with a Nett 78, followed by Carol Miller, who beat Robin Redden on a count back on Nett 80, with Lesleigh Edwards finishing fourth on Nett 81 for the round. New arrival Mandy Crawford started to find her touch around the course, taking out the Nearest the Pin on the 14th and Merrilyn Hilton hit accurately to take out the straightest drive on the 17th fairway. In the Ruth Wheal competition Gill Brook with a couple of ferretts, along with some straight putting from Sandy Yates, proved to be too much for Anthea Brinkworth and Mel Johnson.

The Club Championships progressed along with the men playing in the “Super Saturday”, on August 1st, a day of Quarter Finals followed by the Semis. From a high quality day of golf the A Grade produced the expected final pairing of Bradley Sherriff up against Brenton Goldsmith. Sherriff lined up against Darryl Brook in one semi, while Goldsmith took on Shaun Groth in the other, with both matches producing a high standard of golf before the consistent quality of Sherriff and Goldsmith won out. In the B Grade Bob Dicker produced another semi final winning effort when he conquered Willy Little, while Daniel Rayson hit the ball long and straight in a powerful performance to defeat Pete Rivett. The C Grade final produced the paring of Jim Gelton and Andrew Morris, after Morris defeated DJ Appelkamp in one and only semi final.

Next Sunday sees the playing of the Club Championship finals, teeing off around 8.30am with the Finals of the A and B Grade Men, followed throughout the morning by the Ladies A, B and C Grade Finals and the C Grade Men’s final. As usual a good turnout of members will add to the atmosphere of the day, with presentations in the clubhouse afterward. In the meantime on Saturday the Men will compete in the Spence Dix and Co Stroke round, while the Ladies on Wednesday play in the fourth round of the Presidents Cup, which will be a Stabelford event sponsored by Retail Therapy as well as the semi finals of the Club Championships, to sort out the finalists for Sunday.togetherness
