Ladies stableford – June 30th

Glenys continues her winning streak & Di takes a penalty!

Seven ladies teed off on Tuesday for a stableford round with a couple of reasonable scores and some not so good! Glenys Pierce had another good round with 31 stableford points winning the day. Glenys also had a birdie on hole 16. Runner up Lyn Mosey 30 points.

Extra comp was most 2 points & Di Day won this with 10 x 2 points, Di also had the shot of the day, after hitting out of the creek hazard she couldn’t find her ball. She knew it had come back and hit her (no penalty these days), and was thinking she’d have to replay her ball. When she moved to do so then discovered her ball had landed in her vest!! (Penalty then taken for unplayable). Well done Di I don’t think anyone could top that one🤣🤣

Tuesday Results

David “Jack” Webster demolished Tuesday’s field with a brilliant 40 stableford points, despite the windy conditions. Best of the rest was Andy Phillips with a meagre 32 points. Klaus Heymann & Trevor Maxted shared the Mars Bar.

Sunday Social Golf Begins

We will be conducting a 10 hole Ambrose social fun event at 10 am on the first Sunday of the month for the next few months. We encourage non members and non golfers to come out for a hit. The entry fee is just $10.

For those unfamiliar, an Ambrose competition is simply a scramble using team handicaps to produce a net score.

In a scramble, all members of your team tee off. Team members compare results and decide which of the drives is best. All team members then play their second shots from the location of the best drive. Repeat this process until the ball is in the hole.

The next 10 hole ambrose will be held on Sunday July 5, so put the date in your diary now.

Results for Sunday’s event:

  • Winners – Gus & Pickles
  • Runners up – Kobi & Bevan
  • Nearest the pin hole 4 – Tommo
  • Nearest the pin hole 11 – Gus
  • Long Drive Men – Tommo
  • Long Drive Junior – Kobi
  • Mars Bar – Bob & Dick

Burra Golf Course Closed Until Further Notice

Covid-19 measures introduced by the Government have meant that all golf courses in Australia should be closed.

The health of all members and visitors are of prime concern and the committee has acted quickly following the latest government announcements and advice from Golf Australia. The clubhouse was closed a week ago and will remain closed.

We have tried to keep the course open while meeting social distancing guidelines but given the tightening of these it is no longer possible. It was our aim to provide the opportunity for members to continue to get exercise. Unfortunately, according to the government, golf does not rate as an exercise.

We will open the course again once it is deemed safe to do so. In the meantime please keep safe.
