Clifton Springs

Clifton Springs GC was the Venue of choice for Round 3 of the GCSGC. Marko Tomasevic went back to back with a another superb score of 41 Stableford points. Bernie Kozina came in second (40 points) therefore securing his qualification for the Champ of Champs in December. Branko Matijevic rounded of the podium positions (also with 40 points). Nearest the pins went to David Jukic, Steve Kunovic, Adam Fazio & Zdenko Novoselac. Long hitters for the day were Jake Gunjaca & Troy Kukac. Anth Morelli has almost certainly sewn up the NAGA for the year with another one this month. Look at the positives Anth the only way is up, stick at it mate. Next tourney is at Curlewis on Sunday 29 March 7:30 tee off. This is the second stroke event of the year and could very well decide the Ivan Marks Trophy. Until then Happy Swinging.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We have had a few members asking why their social club handicap is more than 2 strokes off their official handicap. Please know that if we do not have your golf link number we can not adjust you social handicap. Over the next few tournaments we will attach a sheet of paper to your scorecard and if any player would like to have their social handicap adjusted to + or – 2, you will need o fill out the sheet and submit it with your scorecard at the end. One thing to remember is that we the committee are not mind readers and every player has the responsibility to play within 2 shots of their official handicap. Also we would ask if your official handicap does change in the future, please note it on the scorecard so we can adjust it accordingly. Thank you – Committee

Monthly Green Fees – The cost to play with the Geelong Croatian social golf club has increased from $35 to $40. This is due to the increase in green fees the golf courses are charging us.

Cro Open – The Cro open will change from a stableford format to a Par format.

Champ Of Champs – If a player is late to a tee off for the Champ of champs and his group has already tee’d off, he will be disqualified from the tournament.

Champ of Champs – In an event of a tie, the players which are equal leaders will play the 18th hole to determine the winner. The 18th hole will continue to be played until there is a winner. There will no longer be count back.

Vic Cro – The Geelong Croatian socila golf club will be hosting the Vic Cro this year. A date and venue is yet to be detemrined.

2015 Golf trip – The committee is planning a golf trip ( date and venue to be detemrined) for 2015. We will require at least 25 members to attend in order for the trip to go ahead. Similar to past years, we will subsidize some of the costs for the golf trip.

4 man Ambrose – We will try and incorporate a 4 man ambrose tournament in 2015 on a public holiday pending interest. The event will have no effect to your handicap nor will it qualify you for the finals. Just something for a bit of fun :) .
