Champs Winner – Breakup wrap.

Hi Members,

Adrian “Big Shot” Began was our Champ of Champs winner for 2017 – sizzling up some soggy greens at Portarlington with a net 66. Welldone Adrian.

At the Hacks Anthony Kunovic took out the day on countback from Branko Matijevic with 36 points.

Other big winners this year – David Gurrie (MVP & Ivan Marks), Paul Miocic (Cro Open, NTP), Blairy (Longest Drive’s) and the President took home some sort of cup.

Congrats also to our happy little NAGA’s Luka, Branko and Vlado.

Check out the gallery for pictures of all the winners.

Has anyone seen Vrle he may have got pinched stumbling home with T.V. under his arm on Sunday evening?

The 1st Tournament next year will be at Portarlington on the 21st of Jan and incorporates Rd 1 of the Ivan Marks which is a stroke event.

Merry Xmas and Happy Swinging

5/11/17 Rd 13 Bacchus Marsh Golf Club

Hi members,

20 Golfers tee’d off in Rd 13 at Royal Bacchus Marsh GC, the weather conditions were overcast and the greens certainly quickened up as the sun peaked through. Some of the golfers really used the local drop zone rule to their advantage as all greens had been graded just off the fringes. The podium placers all scored 39 points and were separated on count-back; Ante ‘Sarsaparilla’ Sarcevic took out the tourney, Steve ‘Kumpy’ Kump took silver and Adrian ‘baby cakes’ Began finished third and subsequently qualified for the Champs. Luka K finished with 22 points and took home the NAGA pink ball for his troubles. A big thankyou to member Tom Svaljek for hosting us at his club and putting on such a great day, for those that ventured home on the bus we were certainly well feed, lubricated and some wallets were bulging.

Rd 13 also included the final of the President’s knock-out cup and our inaugural winner was our very own president Marinko ‘M.O.N.X.’ Pasauk 3 & 2 over Jimbo.

Our next tournament is the Championships on 3/12/17 at Portarlington 7.00am tee-off (Stroke) and Hack of Hacks at Geelong Golf Club 7.30am tee-off (Stableford). These will be followed by our break-up at the DOM Separation St more details to follow.

15/10/17 Round 12 Queenscliff Golf Course

Hi members,

18 Golfers made the trek to Swan island for round twelve, remarkably there was little to no wind at this perennially gusty course where on occasion you can find the local roo’s wind surfing across swan bay. The ‘Big Bomber’ Brian Blair took out the honours on countback from ‘Mr Syndicate’ Stipe Kump on 36 points. ‘Branks’ Krstevski finished in third on 35 points and qualifies for the Champs tourney at Port on the 3rd of December. Ivan Krasic took home the lady ball with a 24 for NAGA, better luck next time Ivica.

As for the Semi’s of the knock-out cup only one matches went ahead and went down to the last putt with M.Pausak dropping a 15 footer to take the win apparently.

M.O.N.X over Luka ‘Captain Krunch’ Kovacevic
Finchy walkover
