A big happy and hearty Aaarrgghhh to all you Pirates. Welcome to this week’s edition of the Chronicle.
This week we had a good field of 20 players Rumball off the
Blue Tees in the annual Treasury Cup. The cup was kindly
sponsored by Adam (Pa) Kettle. Thank you Adam for
sponsoring the day, as usual, it is greatly appreciated.
The weather was awesome for golf with little wind and
warm conditions, and for a change some of the Pirates took
advantage of the conditions returning some very reasonable scores.


Weekly Fines Reminder
It is that time of the year that I need to refresh everyone’s
memory of the fines.
The following are the existing fines:
Ώ 3 putts – You can only incur 1 fine on the front and back nines
Ώ Out of bounds
Ώ Parking buggies in front of the green
Ώ Lost balls
Ώ Ball in any ditch or drain
Ώ Phone ringing during a game
The fines help subsidise other club activities, please honour your shortfalls and rattle the fines bucket with a couple of gold coins.
Away Game
We are away this Saturday playing Araluen GC. There are 2 spots left if anyone wants to play.
Please let me know by Tuesday night 5pm.
The first tee off time is 9.50am so that leaves plenty of time to get to the course.
Araluen has provided us with discounted pricing for a Saturday of $85 for 18 holes with a buggy. It is going to be a great day with some good prizes up for grabs.
Please let me know you want to play; the booking is for 24 players.

Right now, into the serious stuff.

Life is like a Round of Golf

Life is like a round of golf
With many a turn and twist.
But the game is much too sweet and short
To curse the shots you’ve missed.

Sometimes you’ll hit it straight and far
Sometimes the putts roll true.
But each round has it’s errant shots
And troubles to play through.

So always swing with courage
No matter what the lie.
And never let the hazards
Destroy the joy inside.

And keep a song within your heart
Give thanks that you can play.
For the round is much too short and sweet
To let it slip away.
