On Sunday, September 11, Ceduna Golf Club members arrived early to conduct their annual general meeting before play on Sunday, September 11.
Players then prepared themselves for the final calendar event of the year, which was a reverse ambrose, where players teed off alongside the scrapes and the target was the previous scrape.
The only advantage declared by the captain was that preferred lies could be taken anywhere in bounds on the course.
This led to some very interesting angles and discussions on how to approach some scrapes as some were protected by walls of scrub.
Plenty of laughter was heard and it seemed certain that before a lot of players had another round of golf they would have to stock up on a lot of golf balls to replace what disappeared into the woods.
Some good scores were still achieved with only two and a bit shots separating first from last.
The winners for the day was Ferret’s team consisting of Ian McKenzie, Barry Thompson, Neville Betts and Jimmy Nicholls with a 64 nett 56.75.
Next was the President’s team of Clinton Wearne, Dion Hissey, Graeme Smart and Brett Dalzell with a 62 net 57.875, then came Gassa’s team comprising Ben Gascoyne, Jamie Davies and Mal Fricker with a 65 net 58.83.
Ceduna Golf Club intends to start golf lessons, in particular junior golf next season and pre-season also for those interested.
Finally it was Knowlesy’s group consisting of Michael Knowles, Gavin Haynes, Dean Uzzell and Andrew Xanthopolous with a 67 net 59.
Novelties winners, long drives: Graeme Smart and Ben Gascoyne.
Nearest to the pins went to Neville Betts, Barry Thompson and Ben Gascoyne.
Players then enjoyed a barbecue and settled in to telling a lot of tall stories that got bigger and better as the night wore on.
In closing the club would like to notify the community it intends to start up golf lessons and in particular junior golf next season and pre-season for anyone who is interested.
