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.

20/8/17 Round 10 East Geelong Golf Course

Hi members,

Cold and dampish conditions greeted the 14 members who knocked around in Round 10 at the East Geelong golf course. Scoring was well down and the field was out foxed once again by mighty Miro Kurtovic with a score of 30 on countback from the Pres Marinko . 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.

As for the Quarters of the knock-out cup only two matches went ahead and both matches went down to the last (choked) putts .

30/7/2017 Rd 9 Geelong Golf Course

Hi members,

Windy conditions greeted the 18 members who tee’d up in Round 9 at the Geelong golf course and this made scoring difficult. The wise man Miro Kurtovic handled the conditions best to finish on 37 and take out the round on countback from Ante ‘snakebite’ Sarcevic. Frank ‘Curly’ Cosic beat ‘Dynamite’ Dave Gurrie into third on countback at 36 points. Miro has vacated his championship spot for winning the tournament as he will be working on his man tan in Bali when the champs are played; so Frank gains back door entry. Naga was won by first time entrant this year Paul Ramia – thanks to Paul and our 2017 sponsor The Sphinx for providing the BBQ for some hungry golfers after the round.

As for the 3rd round of the knock-out cup only two matches went ahead.

Ante Sars 4 & 3 over Kumpy
Morelli and Marinko finished all square. (I rechecked the cards boys Anth took out the sixth)

Our next tournament is at East Geelong course on the 20th of August – Tee-off is 7.30am – (Stableford)

2017 Rd 8 – 8 & 9/7/17 Cobram/Barooga Golf Club – Cro Open

Hi members,

This year the Cro Open was played on the Murray at the Cobram/Barooga Golf club. The bus set off early from the Dom and the rakija was passed around from just past Lara. Day 1 longest drive has to go to the breakdown boys Col Thompson and Dave Gurrie – Col tried to go the journey on $5 of Gas – that would have been a feat. At least they got some practice chipping done in the rough alongside the Hume. Drizzly conditions greeted us for Day 1 and scoring was tough on the long West course, so it was only fitting that the Big Bomber Brian Blair took the club house lead on 33 points. Chong Miocic was sitting second on 32 points and after his unorthodox start to the day Dave ‘Guz’ Gurrie had turned in a score of 30 and was sitting in third. We lost a couple of golfers before teeing off for the second day on the Old Course, Sasa Simunic decided to beat the traffic and took off for home in the middle of the night whilst Adrian ‘Air Guitar’ Began preferred to hug his pillow than swing the wrenches; thus they were both DQ’d and shared the NAGA for the tournament (Golf trips require stamina boys). Foggy conditions greeted many golfers and I am not just talking about the weather, so it was a good effort to see so many improved scores in round 2. Paul Miocic took out the day with a score of 33 and won the 2017 Cro Open with an aggregate total of 65, welldone Chong (2 days of golf with scores of 30 up). Dave ‘Dangerous’ Juric was consistent across the two days scoring a 29 and a 33 to finish overall second on 62 points; Dave now qualify’s for the Champs. Day 1 leader Brian ‘Blairy’ turned in a second round 28 to finish with a total of 61 points in third place. With the bus loaded to the roof with golf clubs we were cheered off on our homeward journey by local band reviewer/golf stalking zombie Janet as she chased the bus done the main street concluding another fun filled GCSGC golf trip.

A big thank-you to the Bus driver Luka K, the commitee of organisers, especially Steve ‘Kumpy’ Kump – promise I’ll join your bus quaddie club next time, but we are taking the field in the first.

Our next tournament is at The Geelong Golf course on the 30th of July – Tee-off is 7.30am – (Stableford event) – which will be followed by a BBQ provided by 2017 sponsor The Sphinx Hotel.

Round 9 at the Geelong Golf club will incorporate the next round of the President’s Knock-out Cup. (finally we might see some knock outs as we whittle down the numbers; match-ups are as follows:

Match 1’Hungry Man’ Anth Morelli v ‘M.O.N.X.’ Marinko Pausak
Match 2 Danny ‘Toga Boy’ Pucko v Jimbo ‘Keno Club chairman’ Finch
Match 3 Dave ‘Gus’ Gurrie v Steve ‘Kuna’ Kunovic
