And they are off….Fishmalt Golf Day 2010 has begun.
And what a day it was. After the Saturday sitting at a scorching 35+ degrees, many feared the first Golf Day of the year was going to be like playing under a grill. The good news was, the weather came out perfect.
An early morning start, low clouds and a gentle cool breeze made today a day to play the best golf of your life.
Unfortunately for us, best golf in our lives, isn’t a high standard.
With 3 new players and only 3 core players, the tournament began. Without handicaps, it made for a very interesting day with fairly tight overall scores but the skins and cash were taken away by one bloke. A new bloke too….not sure if we will invite him back.

A new year, a new decade and new Fishmalt Golf Day begins.

And I stuffed it.
Playing just the 9 holes closed the competition up and on the short course that is Goolabri, The Snake came into form…….finally
The results are up and the overall results are also up. Presentation (excuse to drink beer) will be in January.
I want to say thanks to all that participated and I hope to see you all for Fishmalt Golf Day 2010.
Just when you thought all was lost and forgotten. Golf Day is back after 2 wash outs.
Today was a glorious day and a very tight contest with some shake ups in handicaps and rankings.
Big Bruce was the winner today at Capital with a total of 4 skins and 3 tied skins which jumps him up to 3rd place overall.
The Baron was the big surprise of the day, playing with no handicap, no skill and no talent and still walked away with 2 skins and 2 tied skins and finally making it onto the money board. Nice one.
Golf Day November will be played at Fairburn and we are looking at the weekend of the 15th.
Golf Day August has had some major changes.
Due to lack of numbers because of various conflicting events, this weekends Golf Day has been moved.
NOW: 1pm tee off for 9 holes at Magpies.
Golf Day August’s venue has changed.

Where the hell is that? you ask.

Belconnen Magpies Golf Club
Sunday 19th July.
Now I have a tee off time of 12pm which is yet to be confirmed. I do need to confirm numbers. Also if people are too lazy and want golf carts, they need to book em.
The heavens were awoken to the news that the Fishmalt Golf Day were traveling and they aim to stop us.
7 brave folk prepared to meet the day last Sunday, only to have rain come crashing to earth.
We prayed that in Yass it would be clear and we checked the weather reports…..rain with a chance of rain.
It was not to be.
This is the 1st time Golf Day has not gone ahead and I for one, am mightily disappointed.
On to July then…..
Yass Golf Club
Tee off is at 10am
There are 2 carts booked so far. One is taken by myself and Delta. The other is taken by The Snake and his ‘date’ so if you need a cart you need to book one through the pro shop.
I don’t know how much for the round or the carts. I forgot to ask =(
Handicaps are in play and look like this:
Woodsy – 0; Frog – 3; Drakkhart – 9; Big Bruce – 21; The Snake – 31 and Delta – 37. Everyone else haven’t played enough to qualify for a handicap yet.
Transport? Discuss amongst yourselves to organise transport. I have space for one and Delta has already pinched it.
