14th November:
[Presentation 2020Nov14a]

Yet another skins count-back, this time the win went to PeterH with Craig the runner-up.

PeterD had a very consistent round with no wipes, one shot better than his handicap. This gave him 2 hole wins for two skins.

One round left in Skins 2020 with two founding members still in the running; Craig leads Mark by 8.

Round 21: Mark Takes the 6th in Eight

31st October:
[Presentation 2020Oct31a]
Trophy Presentation

Two groups of three in the Skins today starting with an overcast sky and showers threatening. Mark was on fire early in the round with 22 points and enough skins to win the round after 8 holes.

After the win today, Mark has a four round winning streak and a 2020 total of six wins. Our low handicapper, PeterD, is still looking for a first win for the year.

The Skins 2020 race has two rounds to go and it is tight at the top with Craig leading Mark by 6.

The NT competition was individual and 2 ball aggregate stableford. The winner scored 42 points, PeterD took the $20 third prize and Mark missed the $10 fourth prize after a count-back.

Craig provided a live showing of Newcastle race 1, the Ironjack 4YO & up Maiden Plate over 1880m with his horse Fine Ruby running. Fine Ruby, the gelding, is still a maiden: he came 4th.

Catering:

Rules of the Round:

16.1 Abnormal Course Conditions (Including Immovable Obstructions)

This Rule covers free relief that is allowed from interference by animal holes, ground under repair, immovable obstructions or temporary water:

  • These are collectively called abnormal course conditions, but each has a separate Definition.
  • This Rule does not give relief from movable obstructions (a different type of free relief is allowed under Rule 15.2a) or boundary objects or integral objects (no free relief is allowed).

a. When Relief Is Allowed

(1) Meaning of Interference by Abnormal Course Condition. Interference exists when any one of these is true:

  • The player’s ball touches or is in or on an abnormal course condition,
  • An abnormal course condition physically interferes with the player’s area of intended stance or area of intended swing, or
  • Only when the ball is on the putting green, an abnormal course condition on or off the putting green intervenes on the line of play.

If the abnormal course condition is close enough to distract the player but does not meet any of these requirements, there is no interference under this Rule.

Definition of Obstruction

Any artificial object except for integral objects and boundary objects.

Examples of obstructions:

  • Artificially surfaced roads and paths, including their artificial borders.
  • Buildings and rain shelters.
  • Sprinkler heads, drains and irrigation or control boxes.
  • Stakes, walls, railings and fences (but not when they are boundary objects that define or show the boundary edge of the course).
  • Golf carts, mowers, cars and other vehicles.
  • Waste containers, signposts and benches.
  • Player equipment, flagsticks and rakes.

An obstruction is either a movable obstruction or an immovable obstruction. If part of an immovable obstruction (such as a gate or door or part of an attached cable) meets the definition of movable obstruction, that part is treated as a movable obstruction.

 

Weather:

Overcast and damp early, followed by steamy sunshine.




Round 20: Right Royal Thrashing

17th October:
[Presentation 2020Oct17a]
Trophy Presentation

Once again Mark played extremely well today, handing out a thrashing to his only opponent today. It all started with him nailing a 20m putt on Hole 1 for a par and never let up from there, scoring a whopping 42 stableford points.

His dominant win gets him a step closer to the year end lead, setting up a tight run to the end.

The NT competition today was individual and 2BBB stablebleford. The winner scored 44 points and MarkB, with 42 points, grabbed the $20 third prize after a COUNT-BACK.

Longest drive (13th hole):

MarkB with a 220m drive.

Nearest to the pin (15th hole):
