Kel 19 points
Simon 16 points
Joe 16 points
Jack 16 points
Troy 15 points
Beachy 15 points

Players this week took on the back nine holes at Brookwater golf club. Most struggled to come to terms with the tight fairways and thick rough, but Alex Johnson (11) must've felt right at home because he had 2 three pointers in the first 3 holes, then 2 four pointers in the next few after that. His 24 points was one of the highest scores we have had in the competition this season. First timer Kel (12) was very good with his 4 three pointers on his way to 2nd at 19points. Well done Kel, we hope to see you back again.

This week players will take on the US Open course, Pinehurst No.2 it's a formidable challenge with the professional ranks struggling to stay under par. Of course it is easier indoors. The tees will be moved up and the pin positions will not be as brutal. Book your spot by calling or texting to 0478 208 529. It's $25 to enter and the competition is open to anyone with a golf handicap. This competition ends on Friday night and a new course be played for next week.

4. Daddyshack PD Indoor Singles Stableford League
Friday 7 June 2024
Joe - 21 pts
Peter - 20 pts
Pam - 18 pts
Troy - 15 pts
Alex - 15 pts
Lance - 13 pts
This week players were on the back nine at Cypress Point Club golf course in California. It is not the most famous golf course in the area as Pebble Beach is right next door, but Cypress Point was a handful for most players. Lots of bunkers and the 16th hole with the 180m water carry found out many. Joe Taylor(5) rose above the pack though with 21 points that included some solid pars and a birdie on the 17th. 3 shots under his handicap was a great effort and just pipped last week's winner, Peter Hay by a single shot to take the cash prize.

This week the competition moves back to Australia with Brookwater being the course we are all playing. We are leaving the harder front nine alone and playing the back nine from the Blue tees. If you are at all interested in playing, please feel free to. There is no registration fee needed, just book a tee time with a call or text to 0478 208 529. The entry fee is $25 and that includes your simulator time, so the competition is virtually free to enter. You can play Brookwater any time between now and next Friday before 5pm. We are open 10am to 6pm 6 days, closed Monday.

Players this week took on the Hamilton Island golf course front 9. Plenty of elevation and thick jungle off the fairways, but a few players stood tall. Peter Hay(8) played brilliantly with an eagle on the par 5, 5th hole, a birdie on the 8th and some solid pars on plenty of others to post a score of 25 points! Alex Johnson(11) was not far behind with a birdie on the par 5, 5th and 2 very good pars to finish only 3 behind. Dougie Baird was on track to post the winning score, but a bogey and a double bogey late cost him, and he finished 3rd.

This week, players will be attempting to play the Cypress Point Club golf course back 9. This includes the difficult and very much photographed 16th hole, which is a 180 meter carry over the Pacific Ocean. Not for the faint of heart but could be the hole that wins you the cash prize we have on offer each and every week. The competition is open to any player in the area, so if you want to join in the fun, call or text to 0478 208 529 for a booking. You have all week to play the 9 holes and the $25 comp fee covers your simulator time as well.
