3rd April:
[Presentation 2021Apr03a]
Trophy Presentation

The course was busy today with delays on many tees. Fortunately the pleasant weather made the waiting easier.

All three skins players struggled to score during the round though PeterH managed to par enough holes to take the win.

The Nth Turramurra competition was stableford and 2BBB. The individual winner scored 42 points and the 2BBB winners scored 51 points.

Individual Stableford Scores
[Name (hcap) Points Skins]:
2BBB Stableford Scores:
Birdies:

none today.

Longest drive (13th hole):

Craig with a tee shot of 180m.

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):

Mark with a tee shot to 3.0 mbs.

Interesting Shots:

Near the 13th green, Craig was overly amused when PeterH's electric buggy illegally moved off with PeterH in pursuit.

On the 18th green PeterH missed an over-speed 30 metre double breaking putt by hitting the flag.

Catering:

self-catering continued today. Also, now there is a push, from certain Founding Members, for self-catering to become permanent.

Rules of the Round:

No rules today.

Weather:

Fine and sunny.




Round 5: Rain!

20th March:
[Presentation 2021Mar20]

No skins played due today. The torrential rain kept even the professional golfers at home as the NT course was closed.

Rules of the Round:

Definition of Temporary Water

Any temporary accumulation of water on the surface of the ground (such as puddles from rain or irrigation or an overflow from a body of water) that:

  • Is not in a penalty area, and
  • Can be seen before or after the player takes a stance (without pressing down excessively with his or her feet).

It is not enough for the ground to be merely wet, muddy or soft or for the water to be momentarily visible as the player steps on the ground; an accumulation of water must remain present either before or after the stance is taken.

Special cases:

  • Dew and Frost are not temporary water.
  • Snow and Natural Ice (other than frost), are either loose impediments or, when on the ground, temporary water, at the player’s option.
  • Manufactured Ice is an obstruction.
Weather:

Cloudy with heavy showers.




Round 4: A First Win to Sujay

6th March:
[Presentation 2021Mar06a]
Trophy Presentation

Six players today, three Peters in group 1, Kim, Mark and Sujay in group 2. PeterMc joined us for his first skins qualifying round. Sujay put in a fine performance on a difficult day and went on to take a first round win.

PeterD had 11 provisional skins arriving at the post match presentation, he was certain to be in the running for the round win. His luck ran out and he went home with 1 skin only.

The Nth Turramurra competition was stroke play from the new blue tees. From the start play was very slow. The winner scored 66 net and Sujay was 4th on count-back with a net 67.

Strokeplay Individual Scores
[Name (hcap) Gross / Net Skins]:
Birdies:

8th (par 5): Kim.

Longest drive (13th hole):

Mark with a drive of 203 metres.

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):

Mark with a tee shot to 8mbs.

Interesting Shots:

Kim left his putter behind and managed to putt for the round with a two iron. it is rumoured that this caused a twitch rather than a putt on the 15th green.

On the 6th, Sujay hooked a drive deep into the valley only for the ball to rebound back to the fairway. Sujay, again, chipped in on the 17th for a par and another skin.

Catering:

self-catering is continuing.

Rules of the Round:

13.1 Actions Allowed or Required on Putting Greens

d. When Ball or Ball-Marker Moves on Putting Green

There are two specific Rules for a ball or ball-marker that moves on the putting green.

(1) No Penalty for Accidentally Causing Ball to Move. There is no penalty if the player, opponent or another player in stroke play accidentally moves the player’s ball or ball-marker on the putting green.

The player must:

  • Replace the ball on its original spot (which if not known must be estimated) (see Rule 14.2), or
  • Place a ball-marker to mark that original spot.

Exception – Ball Must Be Played as It Lies When Ball Begins to Move During Backswing or Stroke and Stroke Is Made (see Rule 9.1b).

If the player or opponent deliberately lifts the player’s ball or ball-marker on the putting green, see Rule 9.4 or 9.5 to find out if there is a penalty.

(2) When to Replace Ball Moved by Natural Forces. If natural forces cause a player’s ball on the putting green to move, where the player must play from next depends on whether the ball had already been lifted and replaced on its original spot:

  • Ball Already Lifted and Replaced. The ball must be replaced on its original spot (which if not known must be estimated) (see Rule 14.2), even though it was moved by natural forces and not by the player, the opponent or an outside influence (see Rule 9.3, Exception).
  • Ball Not Already Lifted and Replaced. The ball must be played from its new spot (see Rule 9.3).
Weather:

Overcast early followed by sunshine most of the round. There was some breeze to make club selection interesting.
