Please find below the golf report as issued to the local newspaper - except for the following excerpts from Section B of the golf dictionary:
Ball - “A dimpled, rubber-covered, solid-cored or composite-cored, high-compression sphere with a weight of 45.95 grams and a diameter of 4.26 centimetres that will enter a cup 10.79 centimetres in diameter and 10.16 centimetres deep after an average of 3.87 putts.”
Brassie - Traditional name for the 2-wood, whose sole was at one time made of brass. The 3-wood is sometimes referred to as a “spoon,” the 4-wood as a “baffie,” the 5-iron as a “mashie,” the 7-iron as a “mashie-niblick,” and the 9-iron as a “niblick.” Any club wrapped around a tree is a “smashie.” If a club is flung into a water hazard, it is a “splashie.” If it is hurled at a dog, it is a “lassie.” A club that was allegedly used for a hole-in-one is a “fibstick.” If it was a 3-wood, it is a “fablespoon.”
The winner of Tuesday’s single stableford was Peter Frecklington with 36 points, who also managed to land 270 cm from the cup on the fifth hole to take out nearest the pin.
The winner of Friday’s nine-hole competition was Peter with 21 points. Col Frecklington birdied the ninth, Betty Freck’s birdie hole, so scoring a ball. Other birdies to Peter on eleven and fourteen.
