A big hearty Aaarrgghhh to all you Pirates and welcome to the 2nd Pennants and Scroungers edition of the Chronicle!
We had both Pennants teams in action this past Saturday. We also fielded a group of 5 scroungers playing Stableford off the blue tees.
It was good to see Keith Reid back playing golf. It didn’t look like he had missed 6 weeks (see the scroungers results).
Pennants and Tee Off Time – IMPORTANT READ THIS IF NOTHING ELSE
This week we have 2 games of pennants at home. There will be a game of scroungers teeing off directly BEFORE the pennant’s competition who tee off at 9am with the second team teeing off around 9.20.
Scroungers will be played off the Blue tees in future unless there is a desire to play off the yellows. The Scroungers can work it out on the day, remember you will have to adjust your handicaps accordingly.
If you wish to play scroungers, please let the rated ARRR President know by 5pm Wednesday. Those participating in scroungers will be playing stableford. Every player pays his or hers $6 and the total pot will be split up as prize money.
Note – Novelties will be on the course for members. Visiting pennants teams are invited to join in to win the novelties.
Note – during pennants season the birdie and eagles’ nests, members draw, and consistency points will be on hold.

KNOW THE RULE
Know the rule is the Pirates bonus section. Each week I will include a rule as a refresher; it never hurts to remind ourselves of the guidelines we play by.
This week’s rule(s) is quite topical.
5 Golf Etiquette Rules
Ώ Silence is golden. As a courtesy, do not move or make any noise when a fellow player is up to putt. ...
Ώ Take your time, but not too much. ...
Ώ Losing the game can be frustrating, but losing your cool is significantly worse. ...
Ώ Watch where you stand. ...
Ώ Respect the green.
