Annan Law Saturday Men's Club Day

This week we play the usual Saturday Haggle with qualifying for the " A-One Kitchens and Interiors" Shootout Final. The greens are recovering very well after coring so good scoring is expected.
To check up on where you rank in the Shootout ladder go on to the "my golf" website and click on " all divisions" in the results section.

Entries for Omokoroa Cup

The Club Handicap Matchplay Competition is to be played from the 28th May and will take 6 weeks to complete. The entry list is on the notice board in the Mens Changing Room with details of the Event. After the first round the winners go on to play for the Omokoroa Cup and the losers go into a plate for the Presidents Cup.

Saturday "Nearest the Pin" Prizes

We have lost one of our sponsors for the Club Day, who has sold his business. Anyone happy to get their name on the pin markers and get some promotion on Saturdays, please speak to Steve Davis, Max Greer or myself.

9 Hole Men

The optimists won. In spite of the weatherman’s most determined insistence the rain stayed away, at least for the duration of our morning round.
The day’s Haggle was Stableford and all of those eligible recorded scores for Round’s 2 of both the Stableford Cup and the Putting Trophy.
A smaller group of 24 players showed up and we welcomed Alistair Lock as a new member of our team.

Both Front and Back 9’s found the going tough with no particular stand-out scores. The Front 9 had the additional and unexpected interruption to play on Fairway 5 while the new main access path Bridge was craned into place courtesy of one of McLeod Cranes big blue rigs.

There was much discussion on the correct procedure for negotiating an unannounced Fairway Disruption ie 'do we take a drop past the work site' and 'do we take a penalty'?? We decided that it wasn’t a good idea to try and pitch over the top of the crane! The other question; 'Is this fair to the back 9 players who weren’t affected'? Suffice to say we did our best, took the penalty free drop and no-one complained!!

The Haggle money went to:
Division 1:
Bob Duckworth                 18
Ted Parker                        17
Frank Baggenstos            17

Division 2:
David Bennett                    20
Trevor Smith                      17
Denis Douglas                   16

The Raffle Prizes were won by:  Daisy H (ladies), Ken Hartley and Yvonne Hoskins (ladies)

Congratulations to the winners.

Next week we take a break from our Competition and play Bingo~Bango~Bongo. The format will be Net.
