Our second qualifiers were   –   Robyn Dickey (31) and Kate McKinnon (7) with a very good +4

Just a revisit on the divisions for next week’s Classic

Div 4  36-45

And talking about next week’s Classic could all the ladies wanting lunch orders please write them down on the sheet provided near the pro shop and could you also mention this to the visitor/s you may be playing with.  This will help enormously in the kitchen.


There seems to be a little confusion with the newer players regarding the Out of Bounds and Water Hazards and Lateral Water Hazards rules.  Basically if your ball goes Out of Bounds and you find it, you cannot hit it in the OB area.  If a ball is in OB the player must play a ball under penalty of one stroke as near as possible at the spot from which the original ball was last played.   With the Water Hazard, if you find and can play the ball you may do so without penalty BUT you must not ground your club or move any obstruction (e.g. sticks, leaves, etc.) Please refer to Rule 20-5 and 26-1 respectively.  If you cannot play the ball in the hazard, then you drop the ball 2 club lengths from point of entry, no closer to the flag.  There is a one shot penalty.


Hope to see you all next Monday and/or Tuesday, and whoever is doing the rain dance, please stop.
