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.

16/9/17 Round 11 The Sands Golf Course (Rd 3 Ivan Marks)

Hi members,

Damp conditions greeted the 16 members who hit off for the final round of the Ivan Marks for 2017. Scores posted however were quite impressive considering the conditions and how punishing the Sands course can be under stroke. Once again David ‘Guz’ Gurrie came out on top with a net 73 on count-back from Marinko ‘M.O.N.X.’ Pausak. Finishing on the podium and qualifying for the end of year champs was Colin ‘gasometer’ Thompson. Naga was assessed to Mark Tomasevic due to an NCR, not sure what happened there. So Guz win’s the 2017 Ivan Marks on a 2 scored combined total of 148 from Marinko’s 150.

Round 11 Queenscliff is the semi’s of the Knockout cup match-ups as follows.

Finchy v D.Gurrie

20/8/17 Round 10 East Geelong Golf Course

Hi members,

Placing third and gaining a championship ticket was the one and only Danny Pucko on countback from Paul Miocic with 29. The Naga for this tournament was hotly contested with so many low scores but ‘Lucky’ Luka Kovacevic took home the pink pill with a 21.
