MELBOURNE CUP DAY

It was great to see so many of our golfing friends enjoy 9 holes, before putting on the ‘lippy & hat’ to enjoy a very pleasant afternoon in the clubhouse.  

 

The Chicken & Salads were delicious & the Deserts to die for!!!  Well done ladies!

 

Also thank you to Kaye & Kevin Giblett for running the sweeps for the afternoon – great effort!

 

COLMAC HOMES 3-DAY EVENT

Thank you to all players who supported this successful event that began Friday 9th November.  Unfortunately, the first day, held at Sale Golf Club, was a challenge for all due to very strong winds – well done to all who braved the elements!!  

Saturday (Heyfield Golf Club) & Sunday (Maffra Golf Club) saw perfect weather, and both days were enjoyed by all players.

 

Congratulations to the daily winners & very well done to the 3-day event winners – our own Pam Messenger winning the ladies!

 

The raffle was very well supported & the winner of the ‘Golf Package’ was J. Winter.

Well done to the organizers of the event – so much work goes on behind the scenes, & we look forward to a ‘bigger & better’ event next year!

JOKES!  

 

Only golfers allowed

 

Eric, the club's worst golfer, was addressing his ball. Feet apart, just so, eye on the ball, just so, a few practice swings with the driver, just so, then swing. He missed. The procedure was repeated and then repeated again. On the fourth swing however he did manage to connect with his ball and drove it five meters down the fairway. Looking up in exasperation he saw a stranger who had stopped to watch him.

"Look here!" Eric shouted angrily. "Only golfers are allowed on this course!" The stranger nodded, "I know it, mister," he replied. "But I won't say anything if you won't either!"

 

That was my provisional

Bill got a call from the coroner, who wants to talk about his wife's recent death. Bill told him the whole sad story. "We were on the third hole. Sally, my wife, was standing on the ladies tee about 30 yards ahead of the men's box when I hit my drive. From the sound when the ball hit her head and the way she dropped like a rock, I knew immediately that she was dead. God only knows where the ball wound up."

The coroner replied "That explains the injury to her head, but what about the Maxfli embedded in her rectum?"

"Oh," said Bill. "That was my provisional."
