STRATHFIELD GOLF CLUB EVENT

The revamped Strathfield Golf Club was the venue for our event on Tuesday May 11th. It was unfortunate that Paul Meyer, who is a member of the club and long-term lefty, was unable to play having recently torn his achilles tendon and currently wearing a moon boot. It was good to see Max Nightingale and the boys from Lithgow make the effort to join us.

There were 27 players tee off in good conditions but as the day wore on the storm clouds rolled in from the west. Fortunately, everyone made it back to the clubhouse before any moisture appeared. However, the winds presented a challenge over the concluding holes.

Results were:

Lefty winner

Next Event

Our next event will be held at Stonecutters Ridge on June 25th 9.30am start.

We are currently looking for an alternate venue for the July 30th event scheduled for Lynwood and will advise members as soon as confirmed. Whilst the club are working flat out to restore the course following the flooding, it will not be ready for us by July.

National Championships

Just a reminder that the National Championships will be held at Tocumwal 15th to 20 November, and it is suggested that you get your entry in early and secure your accommodation as it is limited. National President Bob Murphy informs me that having played the course recently it is in good shape and planning for the event well advanced.

Something to make you smile!

A new teacher was trying to make use of her psychology courses. She
started her class by saying, “Everyone who thinks they're stupid, stand
up!” After a few seconds, Little Larry stood up. The teacher said, “Do you
think you're stupid, Larry?”

“No, ma'am, but I hate to see you standing there all by yourself!”.

Good golfing,
