Huge field enjoys green-keepers revenge day

Last Saturday at the Young Golf Club the men’s event was sponsored by the Young Golf Club greens staff Adam Manwaring and Steve Winterton.

It was aptly named the Greenkeeper’s Revenge and the boys set up a few very interesting pin placements resulting in a fun day enjoyed by almost 60 players.

The winners of the Greenkeeper’s Revenge was Andrew Miller and Jarrod Sharman with 56 nett.

In second place were brothers Phillip Oliver and Rick Oliver on 58 ¼ nett.

The club extends a huge thank you to Adam and Steve for hosting the event.

On Sunday the social club had 26 players playing in its competition and the winner was Paul Lewis on 27 nett from Dennis Boyd on 32 nett from Pauline Collier on a countback.

In the Sunday medley we had 25 players hit off and Steve May was the winner with 43 points (70 off the stick).

Next Saturday’s event will be sponsored by Pud Smithers and Peter Ferguson.

The event is a FourBall best ball stroke where the best net score counts each hole.

Remember that the Sunday medley is a ball sweepstakes where each month we will have a card draw for a $50.00 bar voucher.

Not long now to the club championship which start on the first weekend in March and are played over 72 holes with two rounds each weekend.

The golf Club is participating in the NSW Government " Active Kids program".

Parents can get the information on the NSW Gov. website. Additionally parents should contact the pro-shop and register their interest.

We will be running group and individual clinics for participants.

The daylight savings teams competition continues, sponsored by Barry Hambrook and Young Tyrepower. Hope to have the current points score details next week.

Our golf professional Bryce has offered the following check points for better and more accurate chipping:

  1. Position the ball in the middle of the stance.
  2. Select the appropriate club to perform the task depending on the  line to the hole.
  3. Align your feet, hips and shoulders in line with your intended line to the hole.
  4. Position your hands ahead of the ball.
  5. Aim for  smooth take away. The length of the back swing depends on the length of the shot.
  6. Aim for a firm left wrist. Don't flick at the ball.
  7. Swing your clubhead through the ball and let the loft of the club get the ball airborne.
