Robe golfers share green with chooks

TWO Robe ladies golf teams went to play in the Lucindale ambrose last week and unfortunately were not very successful.

The “A” team got beaten by the “B” team by only half a stroke but I suppose a win is a win.

I am not sure who decided which was the “A” and which was the “B” team.

The “A” team’s captain was getting a bit irate with her team and kept on putting them in the naughty corner as none of them could chip or putt. There is always next year.

Last Wednesday turned out to be at last a reasonable day for the Robe ladies to have a competition on the full 18 holes without getting wet under foot and on one’s head.

The sponsors for the day were A. and L. Pryce and Koonara wines. Thank you to both sponsors.

The winner of the nine-hole competition was Jenny Gilkes with 16 points and Jenny was nearest the pin. The runner-up was Cate Browell.

I do hope we are not losing you two players to the nine hole competition instead of playing 18 holes. The 18-hole competition was won by Sally Emery with 29 points on a count back from Binge Rivaz.

Sally had a very up and down day and I mean up and down – one minute she was having a birdie on the 13th hole where she accumulated five points and the next thing on the 15th hole trying to hit the cover off the ball pirouetted into the ground missing the ball completely.

But that and four putts does not matter at all when you win the competition. Well done Sally.

Kate Baird was third on a count back from Lorraine Pryce with 28 points. Nearest the pin on the fourth hole in two was Audrey Lawrie and nearest the pin on the 14th hole was Merle Clements.

On a lot of country courses we some time have to play around crows, kangaroos, echidnas, lizards, wallabies some time the odd bush rat and also sometimes a snake or two, but for two women on the 17th green they had to putt around two chooks, yes two brown chooks happily feeding.

Of course there was always going to be the smart comment that maybe there were four old chooks on the green but I am sure that wasn’t the case as I saw with my own eyes there were only two young chooks.

Two brown chooks wandered on to the green and happliy fed on the green grass while players moved around them.
