El Arish Golf


Summer has hit us with vengeance and, apart from playing conditions being decidedly warmer, the fairways are not showing a lot of ‘green’ but, being October, that is the beauty of the north! 


This week, we have the results from the four competitions held last week.


Tuesday, October 5

Our Stableford event was won by Dot Corrin with 40 pts and as predicted, the handicappers axe fell!! Caryl Lavell was the runner-up on 37.


NTP #2/11 Men’s was taken by Paul Marland, #5/14 Ladies’ by Colleen Ingold, and #7/16 Approach shot by Frank Tomasino.


Thursday, October 7

The Sporters played the 2nd 9 Stableford. Three players came in with a 22 and the count-back resulted in Paul Marland winning, Jan Richards coming second, and in third was Tony Little. 


The Least Putts won by Dave Rogers, who had a ‘field day’ taking out NTP’s on #13, #15 (winning the $50 voucher) and #16. Paul Marland took #10; Rod Rackley #11; Col Bidgood #12 and #17.


The winners thank A.S Auto & Spares for their sponsorship last Thursday.


Saturday, October 9

Saturday’s competition was very generously sponsored by Senior Helpers. The winner was Tony Calcutt on 38 and Paul Marland was the runner-up on 36. The Ladies’ winner was Dot Corrin on 39 and Caryl Lavell was the runner-up on 39. 


The Men’s Longest Drive was Gavin Camilleri and the Ladies’ was Hipas Donald. 


NTP’s: #1/10 Ladies Approach: Hipas Donald; #2/11 Men’s: Paul Marland; #3/12 Men’s Approach: Frank Tomasino;  #4/13 Ladies’: Caryl Lavell; #5/14 Ladies’: Liz Marland; #6/15 Men’s: Lindsay Perkins; #7/16 Approach: Dot Corrin; #8/17 Approach: Paul Marland; #9/18 All-In Approach: Caryl Lavell.


Unfortunately, Jonathan and Leanne from Senior Helpers were unable to join us for the day, but the Club and all winners thank them for their wonderful support.


Sunday, October 10

We played the final of our Ladies’ 2021 Pennants, and the old saying ‘winners are grinners’ sat very well with all our ladies from El Arish Golf. We won the 3-round comp on 28, followed by Cardwell on 23, and Tully 21.


We very much enjoy this comp, which brings together the great friends we have made over the years. Big thanks, of course, go to Jackie Oldritch from Cardwell who is so dedicated to keeping this comp in action! 

Please do not forget that this weekend we have our Southern Classic comp, comprised of a 4BBB Stableford on Saturday and a Stroke on Sunday. If you are registering at the last minute, I am sure we can fit you in! There is a timesheet for both events, so please telephone the Club on:4068 5140 or email:info@elarishcc.com.au.
