Clover Leigh golf report for the third week of July 2015

Please find below the golf report as issued to the local newspaper - except for the following anecdote about players on the course after the British Open:

Fred, playing as a single at St Andrews was teamed with a twosome. After a few holes, the twosome finally asked why he was playing such a beautiful course by himself. He replied that he and his wife had played the course every year, for over 20 years, but this year she had passed away and he kept the tee time in her memory.

The twosome commented that they thought certainly someone would have been willing to take her spot. “So did I” he said, “but they all wanted to go to the funeral.” 


Tuesday’s competition for a single stableford was won by Peter Frecklington with an underwhelming, but solid, 34 points. Despite there being other golfers competing, Peter also scored nearest the pin on the sixteenth with 383 centimetres. Trusty four iron. A gobble birdie to Peter on the seventeenth. Trusty nine iron.

Further rain on Friday ensured that Saturday’s event combined golf with water sports. A new stream flowed across the sixth fairway. If it were to be named after the state of play, it could perhaps be christened ‘Lamentable’.

Except for Tania Baldwin who won with 34 points. It must have been a welcome respite from work, for she also took out nearest the pin on the seventh with a carefully measured 600 centimetres.

Next Saturday will be the monthly medal event for August, a stroke competition.

The club is now calling for entries for the annual matchplay tournament. The first round will be played when the calendar tears off the month of August. Enter your name at the club or contact Peter on 6383 7383.

Members who own paint-spattered overalls are invited to bring them along to the club, starting Wednesday, as we begin the repainting the clubhouse. Visitors to the club the following weekend will be treated to a new colour scheme. To avoid complaints about the provided working music, bring your own.
