Royal Queens Park was the host of the seventh tournament of 2014. With the course softened up by the rain we had the week preceding the round and not a breath of wind during the tourney there were predictions of great scores and the lads didn’t disappoint. Securing his maiden win with the CSGC was the long hitter Bernie C.I.T Kozina with a humongous 46 points. Coming in second on count-back was James ‘Finchy’ Finch who would have thought his more than respectable 44 points would have been enough. He snuck ahead of third placed Manolito ‘Manners’ Fernandez also on 44 points who collected a bottle of our very own White Vinegar for his troubles. NTP’s went to Jeremy Dyer, Brian Blair, Dave Miocic & Mark ‘The Shark’ Vrljic. The Longest Drives were both by the trimmed down down Chris ‘Slim’ Tyquin. Well done to the 20 members who turned up and we hope to get a few more for the next round also held this month on the 29th at the RACV Torquay resort where this years Cro Open will be held. Tee off is at 8:00AM once again.
Until then Happy Swinging!!!
Mothers day kept most of the sons at home in the second round of the Ivan Marks Trophy played at the Curlewis Golf Club. Those that did make the trek down the Portarlington Highway enjoyed great weather and ever reliable course conditions. As he has done for the last 3 or 4 years when it comes to the Ivan Marks Trophy, our President Marinko Pausak switched into overdrive and took out round 2 honours with a sublime 67 net (80 off the stick) score. He is once again in prime position to take it out with one round to go. Coming in second was always the bridesmaid Ivan ‘Eary’ Stosic with a 70 net, and another one of the many Ivans this time ‘Porky’ Pausak came in third on countback on 72 net. Nearest the pins went to Chris Tyquin x 2, Ivan Stosic and Vlado Tomasevic one each. Both Longest Drives went to Miro Kurtovic.
Good to hear Danny ‘Drago’ Pucko got his second hole in one at Queens Park a few weeks ago congratulations Mustard Pants. Next tournament is at Queens Park on the 8 June 7:45AM tee off.
Until then Happy Swinging!!!
With the new layout and good course & weather conditions at Barwon Valley there was opportunities for some high Stableford scores. Winning his first tourney for the year was our very own bunker specialist Zdenko ‘Zdena’ Novoselac on 43 points. Coming in second and jumping to the MVP lead was none other than the President himself Marinko Pausak on 41 points edging out Chris Tyquin also on 41 points on count-back. Safe to say El Presidente was not happy with getting chopped & not qualifying for the champs. Better luck next time Monksy. The longest drives went to Tom ‘Braco’ Pausak and to the once again LD leader Bernie Kozina. NTP’s were taken out by Paul Miocic, Ivan ‘Eary’ Stosic and surprise surprise Marinko Pausak x 2. Denis ‘Lefty’ Juraga backed up his fabulous win at Lonny with a NAGA performance at the Royal Barwon hitting 29 points. This weekend the Ivan Marks trophy round 2 is to be played at the Curlewis Golf Club, we hop to see you all there. Apologies for the clash with Mothers day but I’m sure you can all understand the bookings of the courses are difficult enough especially trying to book Curlewis 3 times in the one year. Until next time Happy Swinging!!!!
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!!!
