The highlight of the week’s golf was our Foursomes Championships. Love it or hate it, there is nothing quite like the emotional rollercoaster you ride from remorse to forgiveness, joy to shared despair. Even the 19th hole beer tastes better after foursomes. (That may be a bridge too far). Corporations should forget spending thousands of dollars on team building seminars and just send their employees to play foursomes.

 

The hard work that our green staff have done over the last 6 months and the exceptional contributions from our volunteers have the course looking the best it has in years. It is no coincidence that of our golfing numbers keep growing having 239 competitive rounds played this last week.

 

WEEKLY TRIVIA QUESTION: Who has the highest number of Hole in Ones recorded on the PGA tour. (Answer at the end of the editorial)

 

As the dust settled from our I Talk Travel and Cruise Blue Mountains Wentworth Fall Open and the successful completion of our Jack Newton Encouragement Shield Junior pennants season, our golfers turned their attention to our Club Foursomes Championship and the finals of our honour board Matchplay events.

Our Foursomes were played over 36 holes and the stars of the show were our Ladies combination of Magda Cawthorne and Tilly Elderfield. Resplendent in their coordinated outfits, they streaked the ladies field by 12 strokes to have their names etched in gold. In the men’s A grade, a new era of dominance was foreshadowed after Danny Waugh and partner Steve West combined like Antipasto and Red wine in the first round. However, the experience of Murray Patterson and Craig Maloney, sitting one out and one back for most of the race, found that extra gear to come home too strong for the rest of the field. Word has it that Murray bought one of those new, self-correcting golf balls from our pro as he couldn’t miss a putt in that final round. In the tightest of finishes, Mick Casey and Jeff Gorrie held their nerve to win B Grade, whilst in C Grade, the freshly minted combination of Laurance Petkevitch and the ever-colourful Andy McLean were never headed.

Saturdays Single Stableford saw visitors from all over the country line up against our locals. Andrew McMullen won the main prize, but John Walsh took most of the day’s cookies finishing runners up, winning the putting and NTP on the 5th.

On Thursday, the competition was a single stableford in conjunction with a 2BBB. The honours were shared around. Stephen Parker had 42 points to put a lot of daylight between himself and the rest of the field, whilst in the ladies, Magda Cawthorne kept chipping away at her handicap with another win. In the teams, Mark Hamwood and Richard Pym were just too good.

Tuesday saw an ever-growing field compete with Allen Helmrich holding up the local flag and keeping a host of visitors at bay with a solid 39 points. We love our visitors but local boys rule!

 

Our Honour Board Graded Matchplay events were finalised this week. A grade was won by the irrepressible Farquhar Boyd from Peter (I look great in Salmon) Cullen. B Grade Champion is Ross Golotta, out lasting fellow Gold Member Jeff Gorrie. In C Grade, Steve Huxley can draft up his acceptance speech after overcoming Shane Cooper.

 

Well done to all our winners and competitors alike.

WEEKLY TRIVIA QUESTION ANSWER: Aussie Robert Allenby with 10

 

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

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.

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.
