Report

An excellent couple of days golfing, boozing, singing and laughing. Great fun!

Rad was the star of the trip – 38 and 36 was very well played. A worthy winner of the Downlow.

Geoff cemented his place at the top of the Nagahs 2022 order of merit to secure the Geoff Blackman trophy. Very well-deserved victory – a steady golfer who is hard to beat.

Cape Schanck was a good test today. Tees well back and some tough pins. The second nine was tough, with some tight drives and the wind was a real challenge. Rad (4/4) and Rick both parred the tough par 4, no 1, 15th hole. Chris hit a magnificent shot to the early par 3 to secure NTP. Pete O and Rick both had 4/4 on the par 5, 12th or 13th?? Rick was on for 2, but the eagle putt pulled up 18” short.

Ravi enjoyed the trip and visited Rick when chipping onto the 18th green. Farking $&;t!! Editor’s note: I always enjoy Ravi stories. Phil tells a good one about the time Rick was chipping to the 18th green on an away trip (non-Nagahs) with the crowd looking for a laugh behind the green. Rick didn’t disappoint and put on a multiple display of Ravi chips around the green! Bloody Ravi always pops up at the most inopportune times! Luckily, Rick has a great sense of humour.

Nagah boys, please email Al any other highlights you can recall. I’m suffering from FITH disease and can’t remember too much! Editor’s note: I must also be suffering from FITH disease, as I had to Google the term!

Many thanks to Phil for providing excellent accommodation and organising drinks and nibbles.

Our first game for 2023 will hopefully be Rosebud mid to late January. Check the website.

Thank you, Al, for looking after the numbers and keeping the website updated. Great job!

Rick

 

Another successful Nagahs year. Thanks to all Nagahs for their continued participation, and a special thanks to our new Secretary, who has done an excellent job organising games and providing reports and details to the editor (we may keep him on!).

A big thanks to Phil for once again putting his house up for accommodation, meals and drinks.

Congratulations to Geoff for winning the Geoff Blackman trophy in fairly emphatic style and the wonderful finish to the year from Rad to get his hands on the Downlow trophy.

Merry Christmas to all, and we look forward to our 33rd year of Nagahs in 2023.

Cheers, Al

 Geoff maintains the pressure

We welcomed Richie Lambe, Peter G’s brother Pat and Peter O’s mate Nick to the Nagahs Cranbourne today. Lovely day for golf so no excuses. Course was in good nick considering the front 9 was closed 5 days ago due to heavy conditions. Most of the fairways were excellent. Greens were recently lightly sanded but were very true if not a bit slow. Bunkers in very poor condition. Most of us struggled today. Best score was Geoff with a very solid 32 points. Up and down master!

The end of year away trip will be Monday 28th  – Tuesday 29th November. We’re planning Rosebud on the Monday and possibly Portsea on the Tuesday. Phil has very kindly offered his house for accommodation on the Monday night.

Please let Al know asap if you’re coming as we need to book courses, dining venue on Monday night and sleeping arrangements. Al will post updates on the website so keep checking it out.

I hope you have enjoyed the Nagahs this year. Current leader board will be posted shortly.

Sending best wishes to Ian Staggard who has some health challenges to face in the next few weeks. Very unfair. I think we’re all probably experiencing that getting old sucks.

Any feedback/suggestions for courses next year or end of year trip would be gratefully accepted.

Hopefully, see you in late November.

Rick

 

PS. Phil was playing in the second group. Below is his description of what transpired on the 8th hole (par 3 over the water).

The group in front (Rick, Geoff and Joseph) called us up to play while they waited on the green. Unfortunately, my “unlucky” shot landed in the water.  I could hear some “mocking laughter” coming from the group on the green. Anyway, I was happy to tell them at the end of play that I walked away with a 4/2 after a birdie with my second ball.  He who laughs last etc….

Phil

Editor’s Note: I have to say that I did have a chuckle about this incident (particularly the bit about the “unlucky shot”!), but definitely no “mocking laughter”.

Thanks, Phil.
