Nagahs Golf Club
Notes for the above game
Rick has booked three groups of three. Pay at the Pro Shop on the day. Great value at only $39 for seniors at a really good course. We can fit three more players on late acceptances.
Rick sends his regards from Mooloolaba and provided a short video of excited family followers of Carlton celebrating just pipping the Dees! I’m sure Snotty and Graeme think that going to that trouble was a little unnecessary!!

Welcome to the club Snotty!
The weather was good for this time of year, however whatever wind there was seemed to always be against us! The fairways were fairly thin but there was a bit of run. Preferred lies but barely necessary. Greens were very fast and undulating and we all had trouble reading the break. After the secretary announced to birthday boy Brendan on the practice putting green that he had fixed his putting, he proceeded to 3 putt the first 4 greens!
We played off the gold tees, so our handicaps were out a couple of shots. Phil played well and had an excellent score of 37. Brendan tells us Phil was saved from 3 (or 4) putting a couple of times because his ball rattled into the pin to finish inches away when it was destined to go off the green! Fair to say everyone else struggled, however.
Phil very thoughtfully provided some cakes for us to celebrate Brendan’s 70th birthday. Luckily the bar was empty as we sang a hearty “happy birthday”! Editor’s note: Good stuff and well done Phil.
Our Nagah stalwart and web site maintainer Big Al also turned the Big 70 on July 23. All the Nagahs hope Al had a very happy day and miss his wonderful company on the golf course, and of course in the bar devouring many pottts!! Editor’s note: Thanks everyone. I enjoy helping out with Nagahs stuff and keeping in touch with the ‘boys’, even if it is via email and phone. I still enjoy pots!
We also discovered there is another budding 80-year-old in the group. Dr Tony reaches this milestone in January next year. Soon the octos will outnumber the septos! Editor’s note: I was pleased to speak with Tony on the phone when I rang Brendan for his birthday. They were driving home from Settlers Run. I believe Tony was planning to sneak into Snotty’s place for a quick glass of red or two!
It was another fun day. Hopefully we get Rad and Peter O back for the next round as they have returned from their travels.
Next round Monday September 25 at Cranbourne. Crazy golf still has a deal going here so we decided worth another game on this great course. Watch the website for reply dates etc.
