CAR CLEANING GUY TROPHY
In a tightly fought stroke round at Penfiled, Martin Smith won the Car Cleaning Guy Trophy in a countback with Darren Bartholomew and Dave Larcombe, all having a net 68. Alan Hincks snapped his driver in half, after thrown his wedge at his golf bag in digust.
CHAIRMAN’S REPORT – 2017 WINTER GOLF GETAWAY

Wow! What a weekend. Another Winter Golf Getaway has been successfully negotiated. The weekend started with Darren Bartholomew winning the Waikerie Challenge on Friday. 24 golfers then converged on the Berri Hotel Motel with 12 partners, making it the biggest Winter Golf Getaway in club history. On Saturday at Loxton, all golfers found the going tough and it was Wayne Best who came out on top to lead the field after round 1 with 37 pts. Back to Berri Hotel for Saturday dinner and what an evening it was.

Sat Dinner highlights included:
• Doreen Finegan put the boys to shame by winning the inaugural pub putting competition. The grand final was a heart stopper with both Doreen and Dave Larcombe sinking one putt, but Doreen won on countback as she was successful with her first putt, whilst Dave was on his third attempt. More than 30 other pub patrons gathered around to witness proceedings.
• Frank Poser remembered to bring his mobile phone charger with him this time, but left his mobile phone at home.
• The prizes in the mega raffle has to be seen to be believed. Deb did a magnificent job selling the raffle tickets.
• Ray McCard went hard on the beers early watching the Port game, and he disappeared a short time after 7.30pm a little worse for wear.
• Pass the parcel was a huge hit. Having to unwrap the parcel wearing oven mitts was a hilarious sight.
• We had a very very very big winner on the Pokies!

Sunday’s game was at Berri. A very cold day make scoring difficult. Craig Bartholomew won the day with 36 pts, and took out the Winter Getaway trophy with 72 pts (36 + 36).

Golfing Low Lights:
• Ray McCard and Jeff Pike played together on each day. Jeff won the NAGA with 13 pts on Sat and Ray the NAGA on Sun with 17 pts.
• Our great captain Dave Wilmshurst had consecutive shanks on the 18th at Berri.
• Frank Poser played poorly, and blamed it on the fact he had his underpants on back to front.

Many thanks to everyone involved for organising and for participating.
It was my first Golf Getaway and my first as Chairman. Hope that everyone had a great time and enjoyed themselves.

Planning for next year is already underway.

SINGLES - QTR FINALS
Singles Round 2 @ Balaklava 2/7/17 17 players ventured north and faced crisp and calm conditions for Round 2 of the singles at Balaklava. We had the whole course to ourselves and a 2 course meal to look forward to after the game. ... We played off the white tees and most handicaps were rounded down. Even though the course was a tad shorter than normal good golf still had to be played and the winner for the day and having a great year was Alan Hincks with 40 points. Alan chipped in for an eagle on the Par5 16th to make the day sweeter. 2nd place was Frank Poser with 38 points. 3rd was Peter Robinson also with 38 points. 4th was Colin McPhedran with 36 points. 5th was Andrew Saint on 35 points and 6th was myself with 34 points. Nearest to the pins went to Alan Hincks on the Par 3 and Peter Robinson on the Par 4. Longest drive went to Adam Morcombe with a bomb and NAGA for the day was Jeff Pike with 23 points. Singles Results Darren McCard was defeated by Dave Larcombe 1up Peter Robinson defeated Ray McCard 3 & 1 I went through to the next round on rank after the match ended all square against Colin McPhedran Alan Hincks defeated Wayne Best 5&4 (this game was played at The Vines) Next round of singles: Peter Robinson v Dave Larcombe Dave Wilmshurst v Alan Hincks Next game is the Golf Getaway at Berri in 2 weeks time.

MEMORIAL TROPHY - THE VINES
Today we played for the Annual Memorial Trophy and it was game on as the Captain’s Team took on the Chairman’s Team.  Both teams were hand-picked in a tense 2 hour selection meeting where players form was put under the microscope before being selected.

It is always a very emotional day as we remember deceased golf members, in particular the recent passing of John Lomas and our very first ever Club Champion Max Schulte.

Robbo (40 pts) and Warren Smith (37) were the stars for the Captain’s team.  But the Chairman’s team had a plethora of stars who turned it on.  Alan Hincks (38), Johah (37), Pedersen (36), Poser (36), Morcombe (33) and Rigby (32) were all brilliant.   A special mention to Chris Kellett who played through the pain barrier with a broken shoulder.  He only had 6 pts on the front nine, but not wanting to let his Chairman down, soldiered on to shoot 14 pts on the back nine … simply inspirational courage!

So, for the record, the Memorial Trophy record stands as, Dave Wilmshurst 0 from 2, Darren McCard 1 from 1.

ELCECTIC LEADERBOARD
After 3 rounds, 3 players sit in joint lead on top of the Eclectic Leaderboard.  Co-incidentally, all three are current committee members.  Brett Greenshields, Darren McCard and Jamie Hill all have 49 pts, with two rounds to go.

CLOVERCREST HOTEL TROPHY - R2
We ventured to Mt Barker for round 2 of 2017 and the Clovercrest Hotel Trophy was up for grabs.  It was a no contest as Warren Smith shot the equal 5th best stableford score in club history, 47 pts, to win by 8 pts from runner up Alan Hincks.  In other news, Colin McPhedran broke his 5 iron, and Ray McCard very nearly entered an elite club - a very small number of players to go from winning an event to coming dead last the week after.

WINNER: WARREN SMITH 47 PTS
RUNNER UP: ALAN HINCKS 39 PTS

THE 2017 SEASON IS OFF AND RUNNING
The new season is up and running with a good turn out for the first round, the Buscumb Trophy at Echunga.  It seems that free of the burden of being Chairman, Ray McCard has found his golf mojo and fired a flawless round of 41 pts to win the Trophy it what can only be described as a surprise win.  Great to see Greg Adam and Peter Pedersen back on the regular tour and great to have Dave Bartholomew back from injury.  Best story of the day belongs to the captain, who in trying to extricate himself out of trouble, hit his ball in to a tree, only to see it ricochet back and hit him in the shoulder, incurring a two shot penalty !
