Lonsdale Golf Club played host to the 4th round of the CSGC.
Outplaying everybody on the day was Denis ‘Lefty’ Juraga with an outstanding 80 off the stick. With a handicap of 20 that gave him an enormous 47 Stableford points.
Well done on the achievement mate. Coming in second was Gino Rabar on 41 points and rounding off third Steve’Stipe’ Kump on 38 poins (Beating Marinko ‘President’ Pausak on countback.
The pins went to Ivan Stosic, Manolito, Joe ‘Pizza Hut’ Cengic and Steve Kuna. Both the Longest Drives were taken out by Chris Tabak with a couple of Monsters. Well done to everyone and we hope to see you this weekend at the Royal Barwon Valley at 7:30am, Until then Happy Swinging!!!
Perfect conditions for the first round of the Ivan Marks Trophy, held Curlewis for the first time in recent history. Making the most of the great course conditions one of the committee boys Steve ‘Stipe’ Kump came up trumps with an impressive off the stick score of 80. Eight over (65 net) was nearly not enough as the ever consistent Bernie ‘CIT’ Kozina came in second on 68 net. Surely his handicap will be getting slashed from mid 20′s in the forthcoming months. The last on the podium was the ever reliable Marinko “Presidente” Pausak beating our very own handicapper Ivan ‘Eary’ Stosic on count back. Safe to say the Voodoo is back! The Pins went to Manolito ‘Manners’ Fernandez, Franky Kevric, Branko Krestevski and Ante ‘Bear’ Medved. Longest drives were snapped up by Dani ‘Drago’ Pucko & once again featuring Bernie ‘CIT’ Kozina. We hope to see you all at the March tourney in Point Lonsdale on the 30th. Until then Happy Swinging!!!
FOG, FOG, FOG!
Foggy conditions awaited the 30 + members of the GCSGC on Sunday at Clifton Springs.
With the course already one of the toughest in the region with regards to angulating
fairways and greens it was a tough start for the first off the tee not being able to see
more than 30-40m in front. Eventually it came good an the sun came out with some venom
getting to mid 30′s before the last of the groups made it to the 19th.
Even though the conditions were not the greatest a few of the lads still managed to hit
above their respective handicaps. Another new member took out the honours and has definitely
got the golf bug again. Just as well as the Clifton champ Tony Baban is the newest member at
the soon to be opened Geelong Golf Club with a mansion overlooking the only par 5 on the course.
With Tony first on 40 Stableford points there was counting back to be done with Ante Medved
snatching second from Denis ‘Lefty’ Juraga both on 39 points.
The pins were taken out by President Pausak, Manolito Fernandez & Frank Kevric, with the fourth
marker not being put out by our leading group. (Next time please use all four lads)
Longest drive honours went to Jeremy Dyer and Bernie Kozina respectively.
NAGA was Steve Smilovic, (I’m thinking not to many golf courses in Karratha Smilo)
Next tournament is the first of the Ivan Marks stroke events held at Curlewis on the 23 February,
hope to see you all there but until then Happy Swinging!!
Perfect Conditions at Portarlington for the first Tournament of the year.
Great to see lots of new faces joining the club in 2014 and a warm welcome
back to all our existing members.
Congratulations to Brian Blair for taking out the Tournament with a great score of
39 Stableford points (off 11 handicap) great effort. Coming in second was Jeremy Dyer
and third Mr Consistency Chris Velcek.
Pins went to James Finch, Frank Cosic & Branko Krestevski while the prestigious NAGA award
was won by Steve (Janje) Teplyj.
Looking forward to seeing you all at Clifton Springs on February 2nd.
