Callala’s 11th hole remains undefeated with still no player good enough to come forward to claim the now $180. Maybe it is the water that puts players off or maybe it is just a very difficult hole. Whichever, it still remains undefeated. Come and play with us next Saturday and try your skill/luck.

A not so nice day for a game of golf but still a good field of keen players turned up to challenge the day’s Stableford competition. Today began with a high expectation that the 11th hole $175 was going to go off with a visit of a couple of very low handicappers’. Those expectations disappeared with the 11th hole remaining undefeated at the end of the day’s competition round.

Seemingly immune to the conditions and all the hype of the 11th hole, Jamie Reardon played a great game to come home a clear winner with 42 Stableford Points and a huge smile at his achievement. Congratulations and well-done Jamie!

Also playing a very good round of golf was Perry Cousins who came home in second spot with a very respectable 38 points. Congratulations Perry and nice to see you back in the winner’s circle. Not to be left out of the action was Ken Black who, with just one point behind, took out third spot. 

Nearest the Pins: - Graham Lewington 3rd hole, Bill Snelgrove 14th hole & Nathan Stone 16th. Raffle winners: -Jamie Reardon & Ilija Sesum. Ball Rundown: -N. Stone, B. Jarman, J. Brown, D. Ingle, L. Bebber, G. Hughes, B. Snelgrove, H. Dowling, W. Minns, G. Lewington, B. Plunkett, B. Whitlock & A. Ruperto.

Nowra Men

Nowra Golf Club is fortunate to have a loyal band of sponsors who give generously in support of our playing members. Last Saturday’s trophy donors were no exception. I refer to them as the ‘Four Mouseketeers’, Geoff McVey, Grant Gleeson, Paul Collins and Stephen O’Neill. A BIG thank you fellas!!! Sue Beazley was the lone lady out there and managed 30 pts.

Mister Dinnie put the head down again and brought home a solid 40 pts which was good enough for the win in ‘A’ grade. Andrew Bradley returned 39 pts for second spot and Peter Dalmazzo had the best 38 pts for third place. Long drive went to Peter Russell.

Jason Jay knocked up an impressive 41 pts for first in ‘B’ grade. Second spot went to a solid 39 pts by Norm Levi and third to Col Grimditch with 38 pts. Long drive to Lindsey Jones.

 A great 41 pts from John Atkinson was needed to secure first in ‘C’ grade. Phil Tucker went close with his 40 pts but had to settle for second spot. John Barron made use of his ‘new’ handicap to bring in third with 39 pts and added the long drive as well. Balls ran out at 34 pts on c/b.

The NTP’s at the 4th went to Ted Wright, the 8th to Norm Levi and Adrian Smith was good for the 12th.

The Vets played their Monthly Medal on Tuesday and Roger Hardy only needed 35 pts to take the ‘A’ grade medal. Ray Cowden was good for the ‘B’ grade medal with 39 pts and The Honourable Robert (some-times Sulky) Martin snuck into third with his 37 pts. Balls ran out at 31 pts on c/b.

The NTP’s at the 4th and the 8th + jackpot went to Geoff McVey. Roger Hardy was good for the 12th and John Pratt picked up the 16th.

Shirley Moore was successful in securing the ladies medal with a very conservative 32 pts and balls ran down to 23 pts on c/b. The NTP’s at the 4th to Shirley Moore, the 8th and 12th were ‘no show’ and Lyn Hatchman was closest at the 16th.

Our loyal group of golfers went out on Wednesday and though the numbers are down restricting us to one grade the enthusiasm is still there for the mid-week Stableford.

Michael Kable had one of his consistent rounds again, this time bringing in 42 pts for first place. Ian Stralow had the better 38 pts for second spot leaving Col. Grimditch to settle for third. Balls ran out at 35 pts on c/b.

The NTP’s at the 4th went to Michael Kable, Derek Trusler was good for the 8th and yours truly was lucky to get close at the 12th and missed the birdie. That’s it for the golf.

Please members make a date for the EGM at the Bomaderry Bowling Club on Sunday Morning 9th July 10 AM. Hope you can all get over there and get your membership organized before Sunday. The fate of OUR club will be in the hands of all members of Bomaderry Bowling Club. 

St Georges Basin Women

Last Friday was a cool cloudy day and only 30 players ventured out on the very soggy course to play a stableford from the short course markers. We had two divisions instead of the usual three,because of the diminished numbers. Division 1 was 0- 25 and division 2 was 26-45. The scores in division 1 were very good considering the heavy conditions. Jill Crozier had 37 to win on a c/b from Kerry Mayer. Kerry is returning to golf following back surgery so her performance was especially creditable. Third in division 1 was Jill Bussell on 36 points.

Chrissie Black also needed the c/b to win division 2 with 32 points from birthday girl, Rhonda Whiddon. The other birthday girl Lesley Griffiths, was third with 31 points. Sandra Gonzales had a great shot to take NTP on the 10 th hole. There were no winners for NTP division 2 so that will jackpot for next week when we will play another stableford round. The ball competition cut out at 30 points.

Monday 19th we are hosting 6 teams in the Silver Pennant district competition. Our Silver team has the bye and will be very interested onlookers while entertaining our guests. Club Foursomes championships have been re- scheduled for 14th and 21st July.


Back again at the Course on the Hill with no rain for a change. There was only eight players and this included two friendly visitors, Robert Turner and Cec Ritchie who were most welcome and maybe, thinking of becoming members, at some stage. We played today a Stableford event and included in today’s game was the Captain versus President and for a change the President’s team did the right thing and won.

The winner of today’s stableford game was Kiwi with a great score of 18 points for the nine holes. Next was the Mayor still showing some form with 16 points. Then there was Rocket Ron with 14 points. Members are advised that our annual Basin Cup presentation will be held at the Country Club on the 22-7-17 sit down at 12 noon. Next weeks game is at the Country Club where we will be playing the final round of the Boval Trophy and the June game for our Annual Eclectic. Hit off at 7.45am.
