Carlene’s extraordinary effort at PMGC.


Undoubtedly the performance of the week at Pambula-Merimbula Golf Club belongs to Lady President and Club Champion Carlene Ramsay, who believe it or not won all four of the nearest the pins awarded on Thursday in the regular ladies comp.

Occasionally, one player may secure two such awards, rarely if ever three, but never four. Amazing effort Carlene, congrats from all.

Back to earth for the more mundane efforts saw popular country member Carole Stribbles show the regulars how it is done with a very impressive +4 to take the major prize and the A grade award of the day.

Great to see past President Eva Crow back in action, her +2 score securing the B grade for the day.

Thursday saw Pam Eaton and Judy Stove rise to the top of the pile to take out their respective grades.

Saturday saw 37 points assuring Di Parson a win on a countback from Helen Fisher, well done girls.

Wednesday last saw a healthy field of 166 players front up, with Barry Hewes streeting the field with a marvellous 44 points taking out the Arcuthe hair cut voucher as well as the D grade.

Rob Paine strolled down from Bermagui for the day showing the A graders how it is done scoring a very steady 37 points to defeat Alan Gliddon on a countback.

Robin Stribbles followed the example set by Carole the day before to shoot to the lead with 39 points in B grade. Martien Pruysers also had 39 points to lead the C grade field.

The exact same amount $232 was awarded for the Sails real estate on both Wednesday and Saturday with David Burgess and Paul Welsford the recipients this week.

Saturday saw Rudi Kraxner do a “Winx”and bolt clear of the other 160 players scoring a mighty +7 in the rarely played Par event.

Rod Smith kept up his hot recent form to lead the A graders with +3.

Geza Drucza proved practice is good for your game shooting a great +4 to lead the C graders, with +1 good enough to see Keith Parsons take out D grade.

Remember it is the players responsibility to read the local rule board before playing , after all it only takes seconds and keeps you abreast of what is going on out on the course.

On the last Sunday of February, March and April we will be conducting a nine and dine 9 hole event, everybody is welcome, check at the pro shop or Captains corner for details.

The division 2 boys and the Senior lads kept their finals aspirations alive on Sunday sharing a tie with the Tura Beach lads in the pennant series. No luck again in Div. 1 not for the want of trying though.

For the months March through to June we will be able to play in the mid-week (Tuesday for Men and Wednesday for the Ladies) comps at Tura Beach and we will welcome their members for our mid-week comps in a like for like arrangement.
