After Hughie sent us 2ml of very useful
rain, we hosted 38 players for the ‘Straya
Dy Woigend” two-person Ambrose round,
and those who got around better than the
rest were, in terms of Gross score, the
pairing of Tate and Ian Michael, with 70
off the stick, bumping Michael Day and
Callum Michael off the podium courtesy
of a count back. The day’s best Nett
score was that of Derek Friedrichs (with
Lachlan Michael or Les Pearson - take
your pick) with 61.
So now we can declare publicly the
following listing of “certain things!” and
in this order: after Derek and whomever,
came S.and D. Michael (73/62), C. Mi -
chael and M. Day (70/65.25), W. and W.
Delvendiep (88/65.25), I. and T. Michael
(70/65.5), R. Campbell and M. Hameister
(75/65.5), M. Bell and J. Mason (77/65.5),
W. Nagle and P. Friedrichs (76/66.75),
J. Cowan and R. McPharlin (82/68), P.
Hallion and P. Buckley (76/69.25), M.
Loy and D. Rodgers (77/69.5), M. Keast
and J. Pengilly (82/70.5), D. Addison and
K. Dunstan (81/70.75), Patricia and G.
Anderson (83/71.25), Moya Hayes and
A. Henstridge (83/71.75), W. Berry and
R. Hahn (81/72), Joan Anderson and D.
Goudie (88/75.5), R. Hart and J. Michael
(84/75.75) then, official holders of the
Wooden Spoon, Louise Michael and
Carolyn Mutton, with their very stylish
and elegantly compiled 89/72.75.
In terms of the big belters, the men’s
A grade longest drive was smashed by
Michael Day, the B grade nurgled by
Wayne Nagle, the C grade punched by
Les Pearson and the ladies’ perfectly
placed by Patricia Anderson. Nearest
The Pins were held by Moya Hayes at
the third, “Freddo the Young 1” (could that
be some wag’s epithet for young Derek
Friedrichs? Truth is, we just may never
know) at the eighth., who repeated the
dose at the 13th with a sensational second
shot, Tate Michael at the 10th and his
progenitor Ian Michael, at both the 17th
and the second, where his screamer of a
second shot led to the day’s sole Eagle.
So, the dreaded Twilights start this
Thursday, while on Saturday we’ll front
for a gut and gristle Stroke round, with
Mark Loy commencing and Martyn Bell
BALAKLAVA MID WEEK
Last Wednesday’s civilised weather
attracted a fulsome field of fearless flail-
ers, 20 no less but, try as they might, they
could not get past that walking control
tower, Rick Campbell, who smote a
mighty 48 points to earn a few new golf
balls. Austin Henstridge, the swimming
house brick, slid into 2nd. place with 44
points, hounded all the way by Bill Goudie
(43) and Les Masson (39).
Trooping home in single file were
D. Trickett (38), M. Hameister (37), J.
Clark (37), visitor Shane Hahesy (37), D.
Goudie (37), M. Hahesy (35), J. Curnow
(34), B. Thompson (34), D. Newton (34),
G. Sonntag (34), J. Michael (34), Chris
Hahesy (33), Moya Hayes (29), and “5-
Nil” Bill Berry, who rounded things out
with a rather odd score of 28. Visitor Phil
Button graced us with his presence, but
no score apparently, while Joan Anderson
remembered that she’d left the cat out,
headed off early and so recorded a DNF.
Birdies were struck by almost every-
one really, but the ones that counted were
those of Bill Goudie, Merv. Hameister and
Mike Hahesy, all on the 8th.. Nearest the
Pins were held by Moya Hayes (3rd), Mike
Hahesy (8th) and Mighty Merv. at the 10th.
In a field of 16 players, Club Bar Man-
ager Barry Schwartz certainly stamped
his authority on last Thursday’s Stableford
round winning with 42 points and record-
ing the only birdies for the day (1st,5th,6th
& 9th) and if that’s not enough winning all
the nearest to the pins 4th, 9th & 12th ! !
Rex Mortimer came in 2nd with 41pts
from Ed Manning 39 (3rd) while others in
the better half were Kieth Kluske 38 Cliff
Applebee, Wally Jackson, Ian Rohde &
Mick Nicholls 36.
On Saturday 26 players competed
in a flag competition, Vice Captain Colin
Doudle winning the day with a credible
nett 62 & taking the flag well into the
20th hole. Colin who doesn’t normally
play Stroke competitions is currently in
superb form and it may be a sign of things
to come. Coming in 2nd was another
in form Player George Dahlitz with 66
on a countback from Anton Noack 66
while others to do well were Bob Ahola,
Sam Wedding, Lance Hatcher 67 Roen
Cameron, Barry Schwartz 68 Mick
