Perfect golfing conditions were awaiting the 25 players at Queenscliff. With the kangaroos not to be seen, the greens were in the best condition in a long while. The wildlife was out to put a few spanas in the works. Multiple players were swooped by plover’s and a tiger snake was seen sun baking on the par 3 at the back nine.
Bernie Kozina took out his 3rd victory of the year with 41 points, The president Marinko Pausak coming in 2nd and Mark Vrljic taking out 3rd position. As the top 3 have already qualified this year, Troy Kukac in 4th position sneaks in to qualify for the Champ of Champs.
NTP’s went to Miro Kurtovic and James “jimbo” Finch. Longest drives to Bernie Kozina and Manners. NAGA was awarded to Vlado Tomasevic.
Our next event is @ Curlewis on 16 November, Tee off 7:30am. This is the final round of the Ivan Marks and will be a stroke event.
Don’t forget to text Marinko Pausak or Stipe Kump with regards to the end of year function. As the golf club is getting charges per head, please reply with how many people will be attending.
Hope to see you all there at Curlewis.

17 members made their way down the Midland Hwy for the 3rd last monthly tournament for 2014. With a freezing start every one of the boys was looking forward to the traditional Buningyong BBQ and the old fellas didn’t disappoint with Steve Kuna and Vlado Tomasevic cooking up a storm on the 19th hole. Thanks again for organising the feed lads, much appreciated. Winning the tourney with an outstanding 77 off the stick was Paul ‘Chong’ Miocic collecting 42 Stableford points, second was the ever present Steve ‘Committee Man Of The Year’ Kump on 34 points beating Frank Kevric on countback. Nearest the pins went to Marinko ‘El Presidente’ Pausak, Gunter ‘Blind by the 8th’ Sholtz & Drago ‘Tom Waterhouse’ Pucko, with the fourth being everyones favourite Virgin. Longest Drives were taken out by the long hitting machines Paul ‘actually blind by the 2nd’ Sholtz and Frank ‘Keva’ Kevric. Apologies to James ‘Finchy/Jimbo Finch’ for named NAGA before Frank ‘went to Tech & can’t count’ Cosic actually admitted his score was not 27 points but rather 17 points. Sorry Finchy that pink ball has to be seized from you and handed over to Curly ASAP. The next tournament is at Queensclif (over the bridge to Swan Bay) on the 26th October.

It was a great day at good old Royal Elcho Park. The muds……I mean greens were in shocking condition as per normal which made putting tough.
Taking out the victory on 42 pts was Mark Vrljic, “EL Presidente” Marinko Pausak coming in 2nd and manners taking out 3rd place. Manners secured his qualification to the champ of champs as both Marinko and Mark have already booked their spots in the final. Well done MANNERS. NTP’s went to Mark Vrljic, Marinko Pausak, Bernie Kozina and Brian Blair. Longest drives to Manners and Miro Kurtovic.
Thanks to the older members for putting on a bbq at the end of the round. It was a great idea.
Our next tournament will be on September 21st at Bunninyong. Tee off at 7:30am. It is a stableford event and we will be having another bbq after the round so make sure your belly’s are empty.
Until then, happy hitting.
