THE CAPTAIN'S LOG
21 Pirates competed last Saturday and I suspect those who stayed home due to the poor weather were thinking of the rest of us battling the elements. It was a trying day for most but still there was some good scoring as well. Here’s hoping we start getting some warmer days from hereon. REMINDER: 9.30am tee off this Saturday.
Stephen Hille & Simon Heagney: A big thank you to these two gentlemen who sponsored last Saturdays game. Your generosity is so appreciated.
Next Week’s Sponsor is: Paul Turner
Next weeks format is Stroke [& putts] [Off The Yellow Tees] - 5th round of club champs

Rule Reminder: Some have been seeking clarification on what action to take when a ball goes “out of bounds” or is suspected of going “out of bounds”. The fence perimeter surrounding the Marri Park GC is out of bounds. The first think to adopt is to always hit a provisional ball whenever you think your ball has gone OB or is unlikely to be found in thick rough! These are the options when you go OB – firstly, play your provisional ball, or if you didn’t hit a provisional ball then you can go back to the tee and hit your 3rd shot from the tee. But, hopefully you will never have to do that because you did hit a provisional ball to begin with. The other option is, you place a ball within two clubs lengths on to the fairway you are playing, directly opposite the point [mutually agreed on by your marker] where your ball crossed the OB fence and proceed to play with a 2 shot penalty. So it would be your 4th shot if it was your tee shot that went OB. 5th shot if it was your second shot that went OB and so on. What you can’t do is drop a ball inside the fence line and play from there for a penalty of one shot! So to summarise, if you haven’t hit a provisional ball you have only two options; back to the tee for a one shot penalty or drop on fairway opposite point of crossing OB for a two shot penalty. Being a Stroke round this week, I urge you all to play provisional balls when your ball goes bush/OB. The group behind will appreciate it.
Remember - If you played last Saturday and won’t be playing next Saturday then please advise President Don, and if you weren’t there last Saturday but will be playing this Saturday, then please advise President Don as early as possible, but preferably by 5pm this Wednesday.
