The Week that was at Wenty

Wednesday 25th April was Anzac Day. Lest we forget.

It was the calm before the golfing storm this week with lot’s happening and it all starts on Tuesday 1st May.

Dave Paddison is officially our Professional as of Tuesday. Dave’s already had a big impact whilst working for Rob Kennedy and we can be very thankful that we have such a quality bloke to lead our golf.

To celebrate Dave’s tenure, Tuesday kicks of our Jackpot hole. Put in a dollar and get within 80cm on the 9th Hole and you win the pot. If it does not go off, then it Jackpots to Thursday and onwards through Saturday’s competitions. Who knows how much it will jackpot to. Once it goes off, we start again.

We also have our Junior Open on next Sunday 6th and all young Golfers are welcome.

Then on Tuesday 8th, the Coca-Cola Challenge begins.  This great event includes all our Tuesday and Thursday Week-Day warriors as well the Saturday field.  It runs till the end of June with the major prize being a free Full Membership with lots of other fantastic prizes. Coca-Cola Amatil have a great range of products which will be available in the clubhouse from next week, on top of their current stocked items. Thanks to Andrew and Jeff from Coke for makinthis all possible.

We also have a new Friday 10-hole comp starting which counts towards your handicap and the prizes will be from Dave’s pro-shop.

Winter is certainly coming but the golf will keep us warm. Or maybe a little laugh will do the trick.

Advice from above

A keen golfer plays at Wentworth Falls every week and has particular trouble with the dam on the 10th Hole, losing a ball in it every time he plays that hole. One round he decides that this process is too expensive and decides to use an old cut-up ball instead of a good ball. He opens his bag and gets the old ball, tees it up and addresses it. Just as he commences his back-swing a mighty voice comes from on high:

"USE A NEW BALL..."

Figuring any advice from such a source should be worth following he picks up the old ball and tees up the new one again. He starts his back-swing but once again is interrupted by a voice from the sky:

"TAKE A PRACTICE SWING..."

The man steps away from the ball and rehearses his swing. Just as he steps forward to readdress the ball, the voice speaks again:

"USE THE OLD BALL."

Our golfing week started with another great field lighting up Tuesday. Our Greens Guru Damien Fox is away at the moment, so Chris is doing a great Job in his absence. I doubt the course has been in better nick. Richard Mason, one of our very regular Visitors knocked out 41 points, just eclipsing Frank Tregier’s 40 points. Frank had the win grin happening for most of the day but it’s never over till it is. One name which kept popping up all week was Chazz Ritchie. It’s clear that there is a new Scratch Sheriff in town, as Chazz had the best off the stick score on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

There was a well-attended and beautiful dawn service for Anzac Day held down at Wentworth Falls on Wednesday with over 300 people commemorating. After the ceremony, we had a great breakfast back at the club, and even though the coffee was a bit dodgy (sorry folks, that would be me), the food was super. Thanks to Andrew and his team for making that special effort for us.

John Armstrong was too good for everyone on Thursday and a great pairing of John Wilson and young Angus Evers took out the teams. Ruth Lucas owns the Woman’s Thursday events at the moment and racked up another win with 38 points.

Saturday was the club’s April Monthly Medal. Being a stroke round, of coarse, the rain came down and we had more drop outs than the internet on the NBN in the mountains. There is nothing quite like the feeling of nice cold rainwater dribbling down between your cheeks, but most of us rebooted the computer and battled on. As it was, a Scott adapted to the conditions the best and won the day and the mighty Guzzlers cup. Robert Scott had a net 67, beating everyone into submission with 24 putts. Robert won his Grade’s medal as well and the winners in the other Grades were Glenn Brown in B Grade and Steve West (husband of Sue) in A grade. Glenn also won two NTP’s and the mystery hole worth $71, a good day out no matter what the weather. In the Women’s event Sue West (wife of Steve) won the day and the golden Goblet. Needless to say, Sue and myself had a great night and the golf cart drove itself home. Adrian Pabian was bridesmaid in the day’s A Grade medal but got to put on the Tux in the playoff for last month’s March Monthly Medal as he broke the tie against Jeff Kryger.

Special mention goes to those brave travellers from Dunheved Golf club. Thanks for making the effort, sorry about the weather. The trip was certainly worthwhile for Paul Bartlett who took out the Scratch prize in his grade and a NTP.

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.

The Society of Mountain Artists had their Christmas lunch at the club last Thursday. It was the best ever, the club goes out of its way to make it work and the food was outstanding.
– Marie Morris
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.
