Wednesday 3th May, there was a field of 37 and the rain threatened again. We must thank the Rappville Ladies (Helen, Reinie & Joan) who sponsored the day. It was also our Monthly Medal Round, along with other monthly events and cumulative competitions held throughout the year. A Grade winner Linda Dean (15) finished with 75 Nett from Anne Mead (20) on 77. B Grade Winner was Kay Wood (31) who finished with an excellent round of 67 Nett, from Betty Quinn (32) on 71, Betty is off now on a holiday south and she is looking to get some golf in on their travels. C Grade Winner Jean Ellis (41) has proven to herself that more than one round of golf in a week improves your game, having her best round for the year finishing with 68 Nett from Helen Ramsey (35) with 75.
Kay Wood collected the May Monthly Medal, as well as the Vets Comp, and the Putting in Grade 2 with 27 Putts. A Grade Putting was won by Anne Mead with 27 putts also and C Grade was won by Edie McDonald with 29 Putts.
Longest Drives were A Grade Jackie Bratti, B Grade Heather McAndrew and C Grade Helen Ramsey. The balls given out went to 77 Nett, and there are 11 balls in the Turkeys Nest which was not won.
Friday 28th April there was a small field of 6, most of us had gone to the Kyogle Open Day to enjoy a game there. The Winner of our own come was Ann Innes (31) who finished on 28 Points from Helen Allen (21) on 26 Points. 30th
Sunday 30th April – The mixed 4BBB vs Par event finished with a field of 24 and the day was sponsored by Malcolm Olive and Noel Kinsley, the winners were Trevor & Kay Wood finishing on +8, from Aub Scofield and Lyness Vagne on +6 on a c/b from Tim Wilson and Marg King. The 4BBB vs Par competition is considered to be one of the harder games of golf, and of course there is a lot of information documented on the score card, as a consequence of this there were a few golfers making comments such as “do we have to play this game again” and others who really enjoyed the challenge. Definitely worth playing though to mix it up a little, and good practice for the men’s & women’s KENO sponsored event later on in the year.
Next Sunday 7th is the Mixed Naggers Cup – American Foursomes. Both players tee off, cross over and hit each other’s ball, then choose the best and continue on alternate shots till the hole has been played out. The Handicap is 3/8 of the combined. Another great game to participate in.
Next Wednesday 10th May is the Global Tyres & Mechanical Single Stroke, plus the 2nd Round of the Linda Linklater Memorial Trophy. See you there.
Wednesday 14th February and the weather reports were sending out signs of a 41° day, so most of the ladies were out early to hit off, and get in before the heat reached its peak. There were 28 ladies who made it to the South Casino Butchery sponsored day, making 2 Divisions for the Sponsorship Trophies. The Overall Winner of the day was Kay Wood (28) finishing with a Nett 70 to also take out the Monthly Medal and the Vets Comp.
Saturday 10th February there were 91 players come to play in the Casino Golf Club DIY Home Hardware 2BBB Stableford with Single in Conjunction. Mark and Judy came out to present the trophies to the winners. Mick and Josh Innes were sitting pretty with 48 points in the 2BBB Stableford until the last group made up of Shane Hogan and Andy Shaw put them in the runner up position with 49 Points. Shane gave his apologies not being able to stay for presentation.
Wednesday 7th February what a great day for golf with an early start to the day and the fresh morning air continued on throughout the day. Thank you to the ladies who called our Captain to express their apologies for not being able to come due to either illness or injury they have sustained over the break. There was a field of 28 and the scores are really quite good considering not many played through the summer months of December/January. The greens have been scarified and on their way back (looking really good and magic to putt on) and the fairways are looking great after the frequent showers we have been getting.
What a day it was on the 11th of November, remembering our fallen at 11 a.m. The Casino Social Golf Club & Darren Rae were the sponsors of the Mexican 4BBB Stableford Event and the majority of the 104 players soldiered on through the wind and the rain that came down in buckets on a couple of occasions. It was a huge day for the Golfers with Malcolm Olive (13) and Darren Rae(29) finishing with 51 points from the 1st Runner Ups Zac Innes (10) & Darren Grimston (27) who had 49 points from 2nd Runners Up Terry Oaten (19) & Nathan Chadderton (18) on 48.
It was definitely a cooler day to play golf on Wednesday 8th with the temperature getting to around 24 degrees, and the overcast weather turned a few players away. There was a field of 32 players for the O/A Clydesdale Trophy and the Division Trophies were provided by Casino Centre Bakery. The Overall Winner was Dianne Black (34) who finished with 35 points; the “Preferred Lies” being taken off obviously didn’t put Dianne off

Wednesday 25th October and all donations have been made to the respective local charities as the Outgoing Committee finalises their year of a job well done as well as a great golfing year. Rebecca from “Our Kids” came to the club after the golf game to accept the donation made to “Our Kids” based in Lismore near the Base Hospital; to talk with the Ladies to let them know about the job they do and what the money will be spent on. They do a wonderful job for the kids and families who need the support and somewhere to stay during treatment.
