Today’s beautiful weather enticed 75 players onto our lovely course as we played our stableford round.  Conditions were almost perfect (sorry 4th hole) and I think we should give full credit to our greens staff and wonderful volunteers who continue to improve our course from week to week.

Sandra Sleeman scored the Eagles Nest on the 8th hole and luckily there were quite a few balls in the basket.  Well done Sandra!

Rule of the week

12.2.  Lifting Ball for Identification

The responsibility for playing the proper ball rests with the player.  Each player should put an identification mark on his ball.  If a player  believes that a  ball at rest might be his, but cannot identify it, the player may lift the ball for identification, without penalty.  The right to lift a  ball for identification is in addition to the actions permitted under Rule 12.1

Before lifting the ball, the player must announce his intention to his opponent in a match play or his marker or a fellow competitor in stroke play and mark the position of the ball.  He may then lift the ball and identify it, provided that he gives his opponent, marker or fellow competitor an opportunity to observe the lifting and replacement.  The ball must not be cleaned beyond the extent necessary for identification when lifted under Rule 12-2.


Just a little reminder for the ladies who want to order their lunches, please write your order on the board provided near the pro shop prior to hitting off.  This helps the kitchen staff and it gets you your lunch a little quicker.
