  • July 4, 2017

Round 5 of the RMYC Port Hacking Golf Club was played at the Eastlake course.

The “Winter Solstice” round was notable for a number of records.

A record low air temperature at tee-off, just 8°C.

A record number of golfers. 31 golfers teed-off.

First Tee2  Version 2

A record mid-season slump, with a record number of golfers scoring their lowest Stableford scores of the 2017 golf season, including; …… Anthony Tripodi, Vic Raco, Peter Birdsall, Bob Lay, Mike Barlow, Peter Dowsett, Greg McClure, Andrew Zuschmann, Dax De Traubenberg … just to name a few !

A personal record for Terry Brown, who had the longest drive in B Grade and yet, remarkably, scored the Don !

OhhhReaction

And finally, a record OMG encouragement reaction for, first golf club gamer for 2017, Jeff Green’s “tee-shots” on the first hole. Tee-shots to “pond-er” Jeff !

BCrosby Winner

Bruce Crosby was the individual winner of Round 5 at Eastlake, with an excellent round, scoring 39 Stableford points. Bruce also was nearest the pin on the 17th hole.

After 5 rounds, at the midpoint of the 10 round season, Bruce’s consistent form plus this round’s win, moves him up the leaderboard, and into favourite status for the prestigious RMYC Club Championship.

BryceYoung I RUp

Runner-up in the individual Round 5 Stableford competition, with an outstanding round, was Bryce Young.

4BBBWinners
Bryce teamed-up with fashion conscious Graham McWilliam, who thoughtfully chose, in total tune with the Winter Solstice climate, an understated, season sensitive, somber outfit, to clearly win the 4 Ball Best Ball with 49 points.

Our jovial and quietly spoken Vice Commodore Mark Griffiths had a very competitive round at Eastlake. Griffo was 3rd in the Individual Stableford and successfully teamed-up with Brett Chipperfield to be runners-up in the 4 Ball Best Ball. Happy partnering.

Terry Brown was pleased with his winnings from his longest drive on the 7th hole.

VicPresenting

Following his monstrously huge winning round last month, Golf Club President Vic Raco, contemplated what might have been. This month Vic struggled under the handicapper’s harsh, but fair adjustment.

Hooker's Horror

The aptly named 15th hole at Eastlake, “Hooker’s Horror”, proved a challenge for big draw driving Greg McClure. In the past week Greg landed more bagable flatheads than his Stableford points scored at Eastlake!

Jeff Green  PaulBritt

A warm welcome to two new golfers for 2017, Jeff Green and Paul Britt. With Jeff and Paul our membership total for 2017 now stands at 38 golfers members.

Terry Brown TheDon

The Don was a very clear win to Terry Brown with 15 points.

Brook's eyes

Welcome back Brooke Dibben. Having only his second game for the 2017 season, Brooke scored a respectable 29 Stableford points, but was surprisingly pipped-out of the prizes on a count-back by Jeff Green. They’re a competitive mob Dibbo.
