Wollongong Golf Course – Round 4

  • July 2, 2019

A cool morning put an end to summer shorts. Fast greens, a huge beach bunker and tricky tee sign-posting challenged the twenty-four golfers who teed-off at the Wollongong Golf Club.

The team of John Mason, visitor Michael Kean, Steve McManus and visitor Todd Gammel, disqualified themselves after playing the wrong 18th hole. A particularly bad day for Steve who had flown down from Coolangatta for the game, forgot his golf shoes, had to buy a pair at Wollongong Golf Pro Shop, only to be disqualified. That’s golf!

The big winner was current RMYC Port Hacking club champion Dax de Traubenberg who played off a handicap of 3 and scored 40 Stableford points.

Dax also had the longest drives on the 2nd and 13th holes as well as teamingup with Bryce Young and Graham McWilliam to win the Teams Aggregate Stableford. Missing out was Andrew Zuschmann who was a late scratching from Dax’s winning team. A truely outstanding round at Wollongong Dax.

Not his best round, but winner of “The Don” was Chucky Birdsall.


Commodore Bob Lay was runner-up with 38 points.

Summer shorts back to the wardrobe for Mike Barlow, Bruce Crosby and Glenn Parris.
