Cups’ Cup 2013

The annual Cups’ Cup was held on Saturday 16th November and we managed to avoid the rain that had battered Sydney in the days leading up to the event. It was well supported once again by sponsors, members and visitors with approximately $5,000 raised for charity. The winners were the Mannings Funerals team consisting of John Manning, Josh Hardgrove, Kenny Nichols and John Lambert with a score of 455/8. Runners Up was Ben Smith, who put in a double shift assisting with the BBQ, Matty Nichols, Ian Prendergast and J Gittings. Team Scratch was the formidable team of Lorenzo Natale, Corrado Lepre, Albert DiBiaggio and Michael Sgaramella with a score of 11 under 55. Winning the Team Sponsor Category was Gary Ryan, Fintan Tierney, Bruce Love and Ian Liddell with a score of 485/8 which include two sensational eagles on the 8th and 16th hole. A great time was had by all and we thank all those who supported the day and all of those volunteers who sold raffle tickets and kept the masses fed. Special mention to Judy and Larry Keenan who worked tirelessly all day as well as Julie Fitzpatrick, Ben Smith and Johanne Stapelfeldt who once again came in on her day off to assist....

Match Play Championships 2013

Congratulations to all our Match Play Championship winners for 2013. After some tense struggles in the semis which saw some impressive comebacks (or chokes depending on your perspective), the protagonists for the finals were decided. In A Grade it was a match of titanic proportions as old foes Shane Fitzpatrick and Ben Smith went the entire 36 holes before Shane Fitzpatrick held on to win 1 up. Both players squandered chances to take control but it was a case of never say die from both Ben and Shane that made this match so enticing. We have a feeling however that these two will meet again a few more times over the years. In the lower grades the results were somewhat more emphatic with convincing performances by all the winners. James Rogers defeated Shane Kelly 9 & 8 to take out the A reserve Grade with another solid performance. It was a mixed bag for the Fitzpatrick clan as Wayne Ellis got the better of Brian Fitzpatrick in B Grade winning 6 & 4 after being 3 down after three holes. This little bloke chipped away to come away with the victory in the end. Richard Hanley emulated his 2006 performance with an 8 & 7 victory over Steve Lear in C Grade. All matches were played in great spirit and both winners and runners up should be proud of their efforts. We look forward to hopefully seeing all championship winners at presentation night on Saturday 23rd November where we will all have an opportunity to celebrate this year’s golfing achievements. Tickets are $45pp and include 3 course meal, Pre-dinner drinks and entertainment. Please call the office for...
