Saturday February 4 - Monthly Medal sponsored by the club

Isis Men and Women

Australia Day

A small but enthusiastic group braved the Australia Day heat to enjoy a stableford competition. For his return to golf Wayne Faulkner celebrated with 37 points to win from Clinton Dowling and Harry Zawacki both on 35. Run downs went to Fiona Dowling and Helen Ricciardi.

Harry Zawacki (0.3m) won the approach on 1 &12 and Fiona Dowling (1.3m) the ladies' approach on 6&15. Ken Albion was rewarded as the player who made most use of the course.

The year's programme is now available at the club - deep gratitude to Helen for presenting such an appealing layout with great attention to accurate details.

Isis Men

On Saturday members played a single stableford competition with some fine scores recorded in the sultry conditions. Ben Van Der Valk won with 40 points from Jeff Freeman on 39 with Nigel Radin and Phil Pearce next on 38 points each. Norm Plath earned a rundown for his 37 which almost won him a ticket. Most unusually, Bill Cowan earned the award for most use of the course.

Bill Cowan (6.43m) won the A Division pinshot on 1&10, with Phil Pearce (1.28m) winning the B Division approach. Nigel (7.5m) won the A Division pinshot on 4&13 and Ben the B Division pinshot there.

Next Saturday, members play for the first Monthly Medal for the year - please bring a plate.

Isis Women

The single stableford competition on Saturday saw Cecily Fay enjoy a winning day, taking out the prize with 36 points and also winning the approach on 6&15, her second shot 0.66m from the hole. Rundowns went to Monica Madsen on 34, Helen Ricciardi, Cynthia Draper and Joan Wright all on 33 points.

This Thursday is both the first of the ladies' competitions for the year as well as the Thursday Monthly Medal day - we hope for a well-attended morning hit-off at the usual time.

On Saturday the Monthly Medal will begin and please bring a plate for after the game.

Isis Vets

The Vets 2017 season began on last Tuesday with a single stableford competition for the large number of players who hit-off at 12 noon.

In A Division Craig Reynolds recorded 37 points to win from Phil Luckett on 36 and Mark McAulay on 35 points. In B Division Darryl Johnstone scored an incredible 43 points to win from Lisa Cooney with 36 points, second on a countback from Harry Zawacki, with Roger Draper next on 35 points.

Larry Pershouse (1.05m) won the Men's approach on 1&10; Chris Crouch (in the hole) the Combined approach on 4&13; and Val Plath (0.87m) the ladies' approach on 6&15.

Today heralds the first VIP Stroke event sponsored by the McAulays and the Volgyesis - see you there for this special occasion.
