The Pam Quarmby Trophy was held on Wednesday. It was a lovely afternoon and thanks to all the ladies who honoured Pam’s memory by playing off the red tees, wearing shades of blue and enjoying time together in the club after play. Special thanks to Candida Amm for her delicious cakes and tea! A comment was passed that even the feral cats were more visible that day.

Quiz Night was well attended and pronounced a great test of general knowledge! Thanks Cleve and Julie for hosting, testing, marking and entertaining us all. The chicken a’la king was pronounced delicious and it was a popular evening. Great to see many Southbroom residents, friends and new social members attending the evening! Many thanks to Jenny Fox for sponsoring and spoiling the winning team with her legendary home-made crunchies!
The winners were The GEMS: Graham Fisher, Elaine Harrison, Mike Lyle & Steve Evans.  see Lower right

Aiming to do better
The next time you’re at the Range practicing your Iron striking we’d like you to work on your pre-shot routine and aim.
Before each shot, look down the line to your distant target from behind the ball.
Pick a spot about 6 feet in front of you that is in line with your target.
Now, when you setup, first align your clubface to the ball, then take your stance, aligning square to your shorter target line.
Whatever aspect of your swing you’re trying to improve, it helps to play every shot with the same discipline you (should) have on the golf course. Take each shot very seriously. This practice drill will improve your aim.
You want your great shots to go at the target. So that’s a good idea.
