Ladies Sip n Swing Golf Clinic

Millicent GC is conducting a Ladies Golf Clinic on Sunday 4th March. For Beginners and Ladies returning to golf the club encourages the use of our Short Course in particular for anyone looking to take up golf or players who don’t have time to play the full course. It may be shorter but as a few of us have discovered you still have the challenges of the full course to contend with.

New Bifocals Do The Trick For Warrenopollis

8/2/18~ 10/2/18

After having a couple of fresh air shots in last weeks monthly medal, everyones favourite greek Poppy Warrenopollis took the advice of his playing partners and visited the local optometrist for some stronger bifocals which has paid immediate dividends for his golf game. Warrenopollis absolutely destroyed a crack field of Thursday golfers winning the 18 hole comp with 41pts. Warrenopollis was heard messaging his son later in the evening declaring “golf is an easy game”. Finishing 2nd in the 18 hole comp was early Thursday morning player Andy Patterson with 40pts who on any other day would’ve won the comp with that score. In 3rd position was Pattersons regular playing partner Keith Thrussell with a fine 39pts. Nearest to the pin on the 5th was Terry Chant. In Saturday’s stroke round with a field of 25 which the early morning golfers got still conditions and the arvo golfers got cyclonic winds to deal with it was 6am golfer Alan Schultz with the round of the day with a net 68 to win both the day and the A grade. Some members in the club are wondering how such a wonderful golfer can have a handicap of 11? In 2nd place in the A grade was one of the golf clubs longest serving president Owen Merrett with a net 71. Firing up In 3rd place was Trophy Hunter who played to his handicap with a net 72. The winner of the B Grade and getting rolled in a countback for winning the day was Brian Thomson who is getting all the good karma for what he does around the course with a net 68. Finishing 2nd was the clubs most consistent player of late in a countback Herman Vanderhuel with a net 71 with the scribe finishing 3rd also with a net 71. Nearest to the pins for the day were Owen Merrett on the 3rd, Trophy Hunter had the closest shot on 5th, no one was good enough to hit the shortest hole on the course the 13th and regular pin seeker Trevor Atkinson hitting the longest par 3 on the course the 17th. Nearest for 2 on the 9th was The Scribe and no one in the A grade able to hit the 18th for 2.

Mick Pedlar Still A Cut Above The Rest To Win Monthly Medal

01/02//18 – 03/02/18

Retired Butcher and all round good bloke Mick Pedlar, rewound the clock to win February Monthly medal. With the course set up to play tough and a very strong breeze into your face on most holes Pedlar used his many years of experience to cut through the conditions to win the monthly medal and the B grade with a net 71. Winner of the A Grade in a countback was the very much improved and long hitting Justyn Saint who would taken advantage of the down breeze holes with a net 72. In 2nd place was casual hobby farmer and part time thoroughbred breeder Brian “Archibald” Bowman also with a net 72 with local barrista Mark Pilmore continuing his good form in 3rd with a net 74. The B grade was won by Pedlar with the unlucky Jim Hyland in 2nd place in both the B grade and the Monthly Medal rolled in a countback also with a net 71. In 3rd place with a net 73 was Tantanoola farmer Peter Burchard. Nearest to the pins for the day was Brian Bowman on the 3rd, the president Owen Merrett on the 5th, 13th was Trevor Atkinson whilst on the 17th into the teeth of the breeze was Ian Greenwood who like everyone else on the course probably used driver as it was playing about 230m. Nearest for 2 on the 9th was regular pin seeker Trevor Atkinson whilst Justyn Saint hit it close for 2 on 18. Birdies for the day paid out 3 balls each to Scott Packer and Jim Hyland. In Thursday’s Stableford competition it was new Atky’s Deli proprietor Mark Pilmore stepping away from the kitchen for the first time in a couple of weeks to win the 18 hole comp with a marvellous 38pts. In 2nd position was Brian Thomson who also beat his handicap with 37pts with Tony Bowering finishing 3rd compiling 35pts. In the 9 hole comp it was Brian Thomson getting his revenge winning easily with 20pts from Bruce Packer with 18pts. Terry Chant got the ntp on the 5th. Rumours circulating around the club was that recent 70th birthday boy Poppy Warrenopollis had a fair bit of trouble on the 15th hole with not 1 but 2 fresh air shots. His playing partners were heard saying that he should dip into the retirement fund and get his eyes tested. It was also seen that Paul Whitford had a serious case of the “Shanks” on the 16th after hitting his drive into the trees protecting the 17th green he then pulled out his 3 wood proceding to shank it into the scrub next to the 18th tee block.
