Captains News

Hello Members

This weekend is the Play 9 qualifier for Golf Australia. If you have a great score you may be selected to represent the NT in the nominated tournament in Sydney. This 9 hole card will go on your Golflink record but will not be handicapped until you play another 9 hole comp, The other 9 hole comp does not have to be played at the RAAF course to make it a 18 hole card. All players will be given a Miclub card for the 9 hole comp which you need to fill out like every Saturday. The 9 holes will be the FRONT 9 of the course (Ladies white and Mens blue). Those wanting to play 18 holes and be handicapped can do so but you will need to fill out an old manual card and make sure you and your marker sign it and tally up your stableford points and I can manually process these Sunday morning .

The BRIDGE TO THE 8TH IS STILL CLOSED FOR SAFETY REASONS and we will continue to use a temporary tee until repairs can be finalised.

The Mens Pennants kicked off last weekend and some good results for the Red team who had an easy win as one of the Darwin teams didn#[[']]#t turn up on time and then had a 4/1 win on Sunday. The Blues didn#[[']]#t have that good of a weekend going down to Humpty Doo 2 (last years winners) 4/1 and a draw with Darwin 2 on Sunday. There are still plenty of rounds to go so keep up the good work guys. The Ladies are playing Palmerston, at Darwin, on Sunday so good luck to the girls.

For those players in the Legends comp please text or email your 18 hole stableford points to John Humphreys after you play on Saturday.

Good to see the first showers of rain this week and maybe we might get a few more soon to give the course a good cover of green grass and soften the greens up a bit.

Thank you to the valued Ladies and Men that have spent their time on the course to make it better over the past season.

Cheers

Greg Worden

Tips to improve
pace of play:


• Keep up with the group in front - if you lose sight of them, increase your pace of play;
• Keep an eye on the group behind - if they are always waiting, increase your pace of play;
• Check the score card for the estimated tee time for each hole to see if you are on time or not;
• Limit practice swings and time taken for each shot. (none of us are on the PGA circuit!!)
• Watch where your ball goes and pick a landmark to help locate it;
• Ask someone else to watch your shot if you are unsure where it may go;
• Play a provisional ball if you are AT ALL unsure if you will locate the ball;
• Look for and find a ball within 5 minutes - no more!
• Start walking towards your ball once you have hit it (if prudent to do so);
• Move to next tee block once you have holed out - don't wait for all other players to hole out;
• Tee off before marking score card;
• Walk purposefully.
• If you are having major difficulties, let the group behind play through.
