Golf Membership Fee Increase

Today Rod Pain, Twin Towns Executive Business Manager, advised that the Board met last night to determine the new fees.

The Golf Committee requested Twin Towns to increase the Golf Section component of the annual fee by $5. The request was necessary because of fee increases by the bodies we affiliate with, Golf Australia, Golf NSW, Northern Rivers District Golf and GolfLink. Also Twin Towns has increased their component of membership by $25, a first increase since March 2014. The game day playing fee is up – by 50 cents.

The new Golf Club fees are as follows:

•    Effective from 1 October 2016 Golf Membership will increase to $330 per annum (inc $60 to the Golf Club)

•    Effective from 1 January 2017 the Golf Members playing fee will increase to $6 (9 holes) and $9 (18 holes)

•    The competition fee is remaining unchanged

•    Members can use the course after 3pm without charge.

It seems sensible to say that the cost of Golf at Club Banora remains very good value and the advised increases are not unreasonable.

 

Generous Sponsors for Team Best Three Scores

Thank you to Pauline Ryan, Max Jessop and Bernie & Daphne Andersen for their very generous sponsorship of today’s Team of 4 – Best Three Scores to count, Stableford competition.

The event was very popular and attracted a large field. Thank you to the Pro Shop for finding a tee time for all interested members.

The sponsorship included an excellent prize pool for the winners and runners up, a long rundown list and 4 Balls for NTP shots. Terrific sponsorship!

The competition was close with the top three teams 2 Points apart.

Congratulations to the Winners, Roy, Bev, Ken Culpitt and Mary Swanson who averaged a very credible 7 Points per hole and totalled 126 Points. Their card showed 11 Points at the 2nd where Roy and Mary each contributed 4 Pointers and 10 Points from the 3rd Holes built on a Birdie 5 Points by Roy and 3 Points by Bev. From this great start the team turned on 64 Points. The Back nine did not provide any double digit holes but rather a long sequence of 7 to 9 Points per hole and a total of 62 Points. Great team effort guys – well done.

Below the winners and sponsors – Ken (far left), Pauline (left), Daphne (left centre), Roy (centre front), Bernie (centre back), Max (centre right), Bev (right), Marg (far right).

One Point back were Runners Up – Marg Story, John Skerry, Colin & Pat Hodda. Pat played some of her best recent golf and was the team back bone contributing 22 Points to the team score on each nine. Good team scores always come from a team effort and the other three took turn adding to the hole by hole scores. Marg and John each added 3 Points at the 2nd and then Colin and Marg each with 3 Pointers at the 3rd for the Team 9 Points. 8 Pointers from the 5th and 9th Holes secured 61 outward Points. The 11th and 12th Holes setup their strong back nine with 10 Points on each hole where Marg scored back to back 4 Pointers. 9 Points at the 16th consolidated their card and 8 Points at the 18th Hole meant they had the best back nine of the day – 64 Points. Nice round Team.

Just out of the places on 124 Points was Team Betty Hall, Michael Pattison, Marlene Wyatt and Arthur Ross. After a quiet 1st hole, the Team added a string of 8, 9 & 10 Pointers to their card and collected 61 Points after nine holes. Their second nine was even stronger, averaging 7 Points per hole. The 14th Hole produced a substantial 11 Points with Michael Birdieing the hole for 5 Points. Excellent team work guys.

Sunday golf is very strong at Club Banora and the Island House was close to full for Presentation.

Members wish Kiwi members, Cliff Henderson and Judith Lawton well as the return home for the summer months.

Round 1 – 2016 Men’s Championship

The first round of the Men’s Championship attracted 102 players, one of the biggest fields since early 2014.

Men’s Captain, Mike Flanagan congratulated members on their pace of play and noted that all but two groups completed their rounds in better than 4 hours 30 minutes. Mike also reminded members that it is important to keep the timesheet up to date and it’s vital to free up the tee time once a member is unable to play.

1 October will be a stroke round for all members. The following two weeks of the Championship, a supplementary Stableford competition will be offered for members not wishing to play in the Championship.

Championship Standings

Two A Graders carded scores in the 70s, Club low marker Alan Hubbard with Gross 78 and Dean Love 79. Kerry Paine and Terry Foster are one stroke further back on 80. Current Club Champion, Mike Wood is next on 83 along with Darren McSwaine.

Arguably the best personal performance stroke rounds were turned in by Nick Davis, C Grade and Richard Quine, B Grade.

Nick, playing off 21 Handicap scored 87 off the stick and leads C Grade by two strokes from Ian Kirk who also played very well. John Dalley, Gary Scott, Michael Mills, Dave Harrod and Dennis Jones are also within 5 strokes of the leader and remain very much in contention for the C Grade Championship.

Richard Quine brings his best play to Championship golf and carded the fifth best score of the day to lead B Grade by two strokes. Stephen Smith is always in the B Grade Championship mix and looms close two strokes back. Clint Dunn, John Faust and Wayne Woodford are also within 4 of the leader.

Monthly Medal

Round 1 of the Championship was also Monthly Medal competition. Congratulations to A Grade winner, Kerry Paine on countback over Dean Love.

The B Grade medal was won by Clint Dunn over Richard Quine on the closest of countbacks.

Nick Davis’s terrific round gave him the C Grade medal over Runner Up, Ales Rakovsky who was the morning leader and topped the leader board until just after 4pm. Not surprisingly Ales was in good spirit after his round as shown below. Good one Ales especially as this was your best round since becoming a member at Club Banora – good to see your name in the prize ledger.

NTP shot of the day went to Dennis Jones at the 3rd Hole, not far from Hole-In-One and worthy of the ProPin $95 prize. Understand Ken Mount was also on line for Hole-In-One at the 16th Hole.

Congratulations to Terry Foster who hit a terrific drive to the 12th Hole and then Eagled with his second shot.  Well done Terry.

Good golfing to all members in Round 2 of the Championship.
