Gisborne - 23 November 2014

Acting Captain’s Report


Gisborne Golf Club - 23 November 2014


Although our booking with Gisborne was made more than 12 months ago, because of its popularity with social groups, we were unable to get an earlier tee-off time yet still got a good turn up of players.


November is one of the best months of the year for Gisborne, condition wise, as it is the month of the Gisborne Open when much effort is put into course preparation.


34 players fronted up on the day not only to test their skills against the tough course but also to enjoy the after game socialising and BBQ provided by our regular cooks, Jerry Cymbalak and Wally Kolody.

We could not have picked a finer day weatherwise, commencing with our Match Play semi final whilst the rest of the field played the controversial game of Par.


Whilst some of our members managed to finish the game with a Plus score, the majority unfortunately found the going tough.  As usual, minus scores in any game contribute to stress build up.      


Not only did many players finish their round all stressed out, 3 of our members were forced into an exciting score count back to determine the winner for our sought after Stress Relief Award.


Fortunately, a good drink and free feed after the game assisted in at least forgetting some of our woes.

Members are now reminded that our last game of the year is again at Werribee Park on Sunday the 14th December, where our Match Play final will be held, and we will again be treated to a special end of year BBQ.    


So until that day.


Good Health and Good Golfing.
