Club News - June 2014

Saturday, 17th May was a Par event with scoring made difficult because of the conditions. Gordon Thomson won the event with a score of -3 (a 0 score is a round played to your handicap). Suzanne Greer was second with -4, beating Steve Atkins on a countback. The morning of Saturday 24th May was cold with a light drizzle for the Stableford competition and the scores reflected the conditions and they were again nowhere near handicap expectations. Ron Bower won the day beating second placed, Gordon Thomson and third placed Chris Gane on a countback. The three players scored 32 points. Saturday 31 May was a Stroke event and also the Monthly Medal. Brad Innes won the stroke competition with a Nett 74. John Innes was second with a Nett 77 and Peter Hughes third with a Nett 78, beating 2 others on a countback. John Innes won May Monthly Medal. Saturday 7th June, Queen’s Birthday Weekend, despite the threatening weather, had a good number of starters for the Stableford competition. David Rae convincingly won the event with an excellent 41 points. Rod Ashbolt finished second with 35 points and Ron Bower third with 34. During the round the Sun came out and was perfect for the Club’s BBQ lunch which was held at a cabin, overlooking the 8th fairway. We greatly appreciate the Gane family for allowing us to us their cabin as the venue. It was a great time with wonderful food & drinks at a extremely picturesque venue with some great people. Saturday 14th June was a two person team event with a singles comp played in conjunction. Par was the scoring method used for both events. The morning threatened rain but turned out to be a great day for golf but with very wet greens and fairways resulting in difficult playing conditions. Ray Michelsons won the singles square with the card with Suzanne Greer second with -1. Peter Dumbrell was third with -2.  The places for the 2 Ball team event was decided by adding the Par score of each team member together decide the places. Ray Michelson and Dave Cochrane won the comp with a total of -3. Suzanne Greer and Di Buckley were second with a total of -5.

"Fantastic all-round golf/weekend getaway. My wife and I have played Kangaroo Valley a number of times now and always look forward to a weekend away down there. The course is always in beautiful condition and is long, generally quite wide and open, and always challenging. A couple of long water carries and picturesque high tees looking over the Kangaroo Valley would be highlights. It's up and down so a cart is a good option. We would recommend making a weekend of it and staying in one of the self contained on course cabins. Great log-fire restaurant on site, as well as the town of Kangaroo Valley. Definitely a 5 star weekend."

Kangaroo Valley Golf Course is located in the Southern Highlands on the South Coast of NSW.
