The four previous events held between our two Clubs, have all been won by the “home” team – results currently being 2-2
Our turn to play “away” this year at the beautiful, if not daunting, Metropolitan Golf Club.
The weather proved to be perfect on the day, and the course was in great condition - save for the greens, which were having some work done to them.
Our 13 man MECC team faced a daunting challenge - competing against a 22 man Sandringham team.
The amount of scores that counted, was reduced from 10 to 8 in order to give us 5 scores to drop off, instead of only 3.
This still left our opposition with a massive advantage, having their 14 lowest scores able to be discarded.
With some of our top golfers unable to play - this proved to be the difference.
With a combined stableford total of 230 points we went down to Sandringham’s score of 256 points.
The day was nevertheless, a superb one!
We teed off rather late, which meant that it was a bit of a rush to ensure that the players last to tee off - got in before dark.
Everyone from both sides enjoyed the day, regardless of their performance on the golf course!!
My thanks go out to the members who form the nucleus of our side time & time again:
I speak of: Craig, Matty, Alex, Frank, Brett, Steve and Ron (who played despite school pick ups later in the day)
Thanks to Peter (back from Queensland) and Andrew for putting their hands up to compete for the MECC team.
Thanks to Matty, for getting Brother Damian to play - and a big “thanks!” to my Son Kristian, who also agreed to play on the day.
Both Damian & Kristian had scores that counted – well done to both of them!!
Finally to Jamie - thanks for joining in – good with the verbals, not so good with the clubs on the day!!....however
For those looking at the results table – Jamie did not win the NAGA award – this went to a Sandy player!! (a victory for us!!)
The majority of the players returned to the MECC club later in the evening, to celebrate –
Their odd good shot…
The putts that actually dropped…
Their cruel strokes of bad luck, and…
Their many reasons, for not scoring better than their handicap!!

Well done all - the club salutes you!!

Chris Bussau
