A big happy and hearty Aaarrgghhh to all you Pirates.
We had 20 Pirates playing Stroke on Saturday. Conditions for the 7th round of the club championships were reasonable, the rollout was tremendous. There was a bright thing in the sky that created a lot of warmth. Whatever the bright orb was it felt wonderful.
Your club sponsored the day.
You will be in the capable hands of the Co-Vice Captains for the next 2 weeks. I have Board Member events that clash with golf. Yes, they do exist. Joona is back from Party duties and Phil will come back smelling like a granddad after spending 3 weeks in the UK with his new additions. The grandchildren now know who taught their parents to bark orders. I hear he is now known as the Saaaargent Major Poppy.
Greet the Guest
I would like to welcome a guest we had on the day, Lachlan Ottley. Hopefully, we will see Lachlan again and he becomes a new Pirate.
The Sandgroper Open is being held Sunday and Monday, September 25 & 26, 2022. Please note I will take acceptances over the next 2 weeks. Please email if you are going to play and
either pay Adam at the game or transfer the money via eft.
NOTE – there are only 10 carts so if you intend on playing and need a cart, I suggest you jump on the phone and book the cart ASAP. The cost is $50 for 1 day and $85 for both days.
The course is in reasonably good condition considering the amount of rain that has fallen over the last 2 weeks. It will be interesting to see how the course shapes up with a bit of sunshine over the next couple of months.

Pirates Marri Park Local Rule
Many of you may have noticed or landed on many large clay pan areas on some of the fairways, such as hole 10. We have received feedback from members about being penalised (1 card length does not provide
relief or a grass lay) if you land in one of these hard, dry areas.
We have decided to introduce a local rule. Relief can be taken either sideway or backwards (no closer to the hole) on agreement from your playing partners. This rule does not apply to patchy grassy lays.
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.
So you say you know the rules.
why not try this R&A quiz....
