Well the cold weather has certainly settled in with not much sign of any rain. The course has been holding up pretty well given the lack of rainfall and the greens are slowly getting back to normal after renos.
The fillies once again had a great field out last week for their monthly medal stroke round which was also the second round of the Captain's trophy. It seems the women finally managed to get some good scores on the board with four players playing to their handicaps, scoring nett 73's. Pam May won the A grade countback from Carolyn Koch and Jan Owen had the same result in the B grade ahead of Chris Pfitzner. Marie Vater was just a shot behind the top four.
Thursday was another chilly start before the sun got up for a perfect day for golf for the stableford round. Some excellent scores were recorded, none better than Brad Moore who carded 40 points to win overall and the C grade. John Conaghty was a couple behind in the B grade followed by Graham Hill and Dylan Russell on 35. Boris Morris was the best of the A graders with 36 points and he was one ahead of the quartet of Pete Edwards, Simon Marsden, Sal Hambour and Con Haagmans. Leftie Terry Fidler started his fine week of golf with 39 points to claim the B grade voucher. Chris Knevitt was just a couple back and picked up an NTP on the day as well. Geoff Forest and Howie Jacques carded 36 points apiece and Terry Harris 35. The best front nine score was 23 points and shared by the trio of Brad, Dylan and Terry. Chris came home with a bit of a rush with 22 points on the back where both Seddon Jnr and Geoff carded 20 points.
Saturday's field was back up into the 90's again on another perfect day for a game of golf for the Vicki Wilson and Keithy Alexander sponsored par comp.
Big hitting Michael Day has been waiting for the day he could put it all together and he managed that on Saturday with a great round off the stick equating to a +3 par score to win the A grade. Arch McAuliffe with a few birdies in his round was next up with a +1 score card. Past member and another big hitter, Bert Pearce, was back to his old stomping ground with an inflated handicap and he finished up square. Jaimie "I'm going to give the game away" Lindeblad won the B grade with a great return to form and score of +3. Morry Woods played well for his +2 and Neil Morrison also finished up in the black with +1. Terry Fidler backed up his mid week form to finish square along with Troy Sires and Chris Aistrope. The ladies cleaned up in the C grade with Carole Molloy finishing on +1 and Pam May also following up some good mid week form coming in square. David Washington also finished up out of the red.
Long drives on the day were held by Michael Day, Chris Aistrope, Morry Woods and Sue Siviour while NTP's were banked by Morry, Kiwi and Willow.
This week is a big week for the women with another stroke round for the first round of their Club Championships and also the first round of the International Bowl.
Thursday is a stableford round as is the Saturday comp for the 3rd round of the Diekmann sponsored by Sutho.
Sunday is the annual Johnson Cup four ball ambrose event which is a fundraiser for a local community group. I believe there may still be a couple of spare spots in the booking sheet if you would like to participate in a fantastic day.

Teed Up.

Kapunda Golf Report.

Perfect autumn weather has once again prevailed over the past couple of weeks and the greens are slowly coming back from the recent coring and should pick up some pace in the next few weeks. It would be nice to see some decent rain for the course and our farmer mates pretty soon.
The women have had excellent fields for their last two rounds with almost a full contingent of eligible players fronting up. Sandy McInnes had the best stableford score the first week of May with 35 points winning her the B grade. She was followed in the grade by the trio of Carole Molloy, Kathy Stubing and Chris Pfitz all on 32. The best the A graders could muster was 30 points from immediate past Captain Pam May. Current Captain, Carolyn Koch, carded 28 and Julie Holland 27.
Last week the women were competing in a par comp which again ended with the B graders having the better scores on the day. Kathy won a countback with Paula Noack with her -2. Tine Perry and Carole were a couple behind them. Pam May again won the top grade with -3 with Carolyn again the bridesmaid with -6.
A similar result for the Thursday crew on the 2nd May with Henry Laszyk winning the day and the C grade with 36 points. Phil Koschella again had a pretty good day with 34 points. The A grade was won by regular course attendee Con Haagmans in a countback with big hitting Steven Watson. Both carded 33 points. Peter Richardson made a rare appearance and cleaned up in the B grade, also in a countback. Hoppy and Terry Harris both scored 34 points while Keith Earwood and Mal Chomik were a shot back.
Watto won the front nine ball prize with 19 points and newcomer Dylan Russell the back with 20.
Last Thursday was a big day for several players for a variety of reasons. Morry Woods won the jackpot hole with a nice sum of money to spend on Mother's Day presents, much to the delight of the rest of the field!
Jim Smyth returned to the winners podium in emphatic fashion, carding 41 points to comfortably win the day and the C grade. A bunch of seven players all carded 37 points spread across all grades. Graham Hill and Trev Bateman followed Jim in the C grade. The German won a three way countback for the B grade ahead of Terry Harris and Chris Knevitt while Con and Watto were again the top two finishers in the A grade.
Pat Haydn, Nev Welch and Franky Schulz all had great shots at the par threes to win a ball each. Chris Knevitt joined Seds Jnr and Watto with 20 points as the best on the front nine. Not surprisingly Jim smashed the back nine with 22 points.
The Total Earthworx Monthly Medal saw Dylan put together a fantastic 18 holes to win the mug with a net 68. Well done Dylan, all the mid week practice might be starting to pay off.
Matt McDonald, a visitor from Riverside GC, showed us all how it is done with a very nice 70 off the stick off his scratch handicap. He won the A grade ahead of Derek Baird on 72 and Sal Hambour with 73. Clive Shelbourn won the B grade by the narrowest of margins after carding a 72. Mick Hennessy and Pete Collins were a shot back. Rob Claxton is getting back into a bit of form after a lay off and he won the C grade, also with72. Jenny Menzel had 74 and Rodney Buckley 75. The longest big hitters were Derek Baird, Rob Hancock, Mick Woods and Pam May who all collected a bar voucher. Wade Trimper's "Cuppa Mobile" has donated a prize for the best gross score off the stick in each grade (unless you won a grade prize). Russ Minnett, Rob Hancock and big hitting Sue Siviour won their respective grades this month.
Last Saturday's field was down a little despite the perfect conditions for the 2nd round of the Diekmann Memorial Trophy sponsored by Ian and Margie Watson.
Ian McMillan had a rest from the truck for the weekend to come out and smash a fantastic score of 42 points. I would suspect that would be Ian's best score at the course since joining and was aided by an eagle on the 9th and a massive long drive on the 3rd. Well done Ian.
He didn't have it all his own way though as Seddon Randall Jnr also had a great day out, claiming his own eagle on the 17th and going out with 22 points on his way to 41 and a win in the A grade. Tim Scheer was one of a trio of players on 37 points and he won the runner up voucher ahead of Shane Grigg and Michael Pratt.
Kim Vater got in some valuable practice for his matchplay semi final by carding 38 points and a win in the B grade. Moorsey and Mick Hennessy also carded 37 points apiece to be next best. Veteran Darrell Davies also had a pretty good day out with his score of 39 points enough to win the C grade, one ahead of early riser Geezer and Pam May on 36.
Simon Marsden was the other player to collect an eagle on the day and he managed his on the par 5 tenth hole. Griggy joined Ian and Karen Farmer with the long drive prizes. Not sure what happened to the C grade other than someone wasn't aware you needed to be on the fairway to qualify! Tim Crawford and Mick Day collected a couple of the NTP's.
No surprise that McMillan had one of the nines with a great score and it happened to be the front with 24 points. Seds also had 22 and Darrell 21.
The best back nines in the respective grades were Tim, Peter Hahn and Geezer.
The quarter finals of the Professionals Matchplay have been played and won and lost with all four matches going down to the wire. Kim Vater just managed to get the better of Tim Scheer 1up. This was the same result for Neil Morrison over Julie Holland and also Terry Harris on Russ Minnett. The match between John Allen and Smoo Hinderwell was a bit of a blowout with the former winning 2&1. The match ups for the semis will be John v Neil and Kim v Terry. In both matches the handicaps are within two shots of each other so we can expect some more close results heading into the final. All the best to those four players still involved.
I mentioned that the local Barossa Branch of the Make A Wish Foundation had a fund raising ambrose day at the BVGC Sunday week ago and would just like to report the day was a resounding success with a full field of players from around the area competing. Several big sponsors contributed to the success of the day with one local lad having his wish come true with an interstate holiday.
None of our local teams figured in the day's prizes and Griggy couldn't believe his 320m long drive got knocked off but a great day was had by all.
Back home it is a case of mixed competitions this week with the fillies counting all of their shots in a stroke round, the Thursday lads playing a stableford and a wonderful Par comp on the weekend.
Let's hope the course and the local farmers get some welcome rain at times which don't affect our golf, or anytime really.
