Weekly Trivia Question: What is the course record at Wenty and who holds it? (Answer at end of editorial)

Tuesday Open medley saw Paul Ryan break the 40-point barrier to take the honours whilst Walter “lefty” Mockli’s handicap continues to fall with 38 points and was runner up. Satoko Hayashi won the best visitor’s prize.

Thursday was our October Mid-week medal and the round of the day went to Stewart Williams with a stunning net 65. Stewart and John Turner won the medals in their grades and Bruce Crossing and Vic Smiley were runners up. In the Ladies, Jenny Whellens won the day from Anne Frazer.

Saturday was a Par handicap with 2BBB and also the annual Captains vs Presidents day. The day belonged to Mary Petkevitch who teamed up with Christine (I still remember my 45 points 2 weeks ago) Hargreaves to win the teams event, came runner up to Linda Loftus in the ladies, and took out the mystery hole prize for her NTP on 15. Well done Mary. Runners up in the team’s event was Laurie McCracken and Domonic Waldlaw. They lost on a count back and both were bemoaning missing short putts on the last. Don’t worry guys, there wouldn’t be a member alive who could put their hand on their hearts and say they had never missed a 2-footer on 18. 

In the Men’s event, Frank Tregier won the day from a gaggle of players just a point back. Included amongst them were Ross Galotta, President Stuart and Junior member Samuel Kennedy. Jacob Cullen won the days Junior Prize. Bronko Djura proved that he is the best golfer at the club right now by again winning the scratch. 

In the Captain vs President event, the Captain’s team did a Black Caviar and led from the start and was never headed. Whilst matching 25 wins from as many starts is a tall order, 6 wins in a row is a good start. The Captain will be 77 YO by then but the mountains air keeps you strong, so you never know.

Sunday saw the final of our Handiskins with Col Evans, Stuart Liddell, Mark Kearns and Mark Edwards teeing it up at 9am under the watchful eye of officiator Paul. The only thing better than the golf was the quality of the sledging which was top shelf. At the end, Mark Kearns’s putter worked at the critical times when jackpots were on offer and Mark Edwards just kept the dollars ticking over. Col was the low handicapper and we lost count of the number of times he had a par putt but had to pick up as the hole was already won. By the 17th, there was a nudie run on the cards as President Stuart’s wallet was still empty and not even whipping the shoes and socks off, rolling up the pants and playing out of the hazard (a few times) brought any coin.

On the 18th, The President sank a tricky 6-inch putt for a square and the community had a collective sigh of relief as no bare bottoms were required. All our 4 finalists will now be invited to play at Royal Pines. Special mention to Paul from Handiskins. Thanks Paul and we’ll definitely do it again next year.

Answer to weekly Trivia Question: Colin Stockley -62.

WENTWORTH FALLS COUNTRY CLUB - JUNIORS

A historic week for WFCC junior golf started with a school holiday clinic where 16 young golfers spent the day hitting, chipping, putting and eating. It was a fantastic day filled with laughter and learning, the perfect combination.

On Saturday Sam Kennedy came 3rd in the open competition, scoring +3 in a Par event. This was Sam’s first podium finish and he was super excited to beat his dad. Better luck next time Rob.

A little piece of history was made on Sunday with the WFCC Junior Pennant team playing in their first ever game in the Encourage Shield. It was a difficult task playing Leonay on their home track but all of the WFCC team played very well and they represented their club with pride and dignity. They even managed to get some points on the board. The final score was a 4-2 loss but Amelia Galbraith & Angus Evers won the final hole of their contests to draw their matches and Lachlan Cullen won his match with a hole to spare. Well done to everyone involved, especially our awesome pro Robert Kennedy for making this all possible. The next game is on Sunday where we play Camden Lakeside at Windsor GC.

As school is back so too are our FREE junior clinics. The beginner’s clinic is on Friday and the advanced on Tuesday, both starting at 4pm. For more information, please contact Wentworth Falls Pro Shop on 4757 1899.

I just wanted to write to let you know just how impressed I was with your club. In fact, everyone who attended the lunch was very, very impressed. Your staff could not have been more friendly, efficient and helpful. Even the young guy behind the bar was super-friendly whilst still being professional.  The food, without exception, was tremendous.
– Anne Hutchins
We often take family and visitors to the Thursday/Friday night servings and always found that everybody has enjoyed the food. The service is great with contact with the chef and his staff are wonderful and nothing is a problem for them even on a fully booked night they are so obliging.
– Mark R
Lovely Country golf club, with nice views over the course. Friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices.
– Martin C
An excellent venue for a special function. Friendly helpful staff and scrumptious food. I attended two Christmas lunches this past week and both were terrific. Also the Friday night carvery is worth trying. And the coffee is good too.
– Maunie K
This club has a real atmosphere about it and it never fails to please. Food, service all good. The servings are very generous and on most occasions are served quite quickly. The wine prices are attractive.
– Geoffrey W
My grandparents live in the area and after staying longer than expected visiting them suggested we have dinner at the country club. The only complaint I have is that they didn't tell me how good It was! - or I wouldn't have had so much for lunch.

A great course with attractive flora and fauna, and highly recommended for anyone visiting the Blue Mountains.

My family and I would like to thank Jackie and Matt and everyone else at the club for making our daughters and son in law Monique & Joel's wedding such a wonderful night.
