Amateur Cup

Last Saturday the Club hosted the North Ryde Amateur Cup. This year we had 77 players, with 51 players from other clubs, it was fantastic to see so many playing in this annual event.

After 18 holes we had 3 players tied on 2 under with rounds of 67. Brij Ingrey (from The Australian), Josh Leggo (from Muirfield) & Alex Peade (from Mona Vale) resulting in a 3-hole playoff. Brij Ingrey won the playoff, with even par for the 3 holes, 2nd was Josh Leggo and Alex Peade was 3rd as he wasn't able to make it back to the club after playing earlier in the morning.

North Ryde showed once again that it isn't as easy as people think, there were 28 people in the field who had a Handicap of scratch or better, with the lowest being 4 people playing off +4 yet only 4 players were able to break Par on the day and only 3 non-members who were able to play better than their handicap. Congratulations to the final winners on the day!

The North Ryde Amateur Bowl Members competition was also played on Saturday with congratulations to the winner, Antonio Choi with a Nett 67 on a countback.

Meet Joseph

As promised another new team member to introduce to you this week is Joseph Maguire who spent his formative years just down the road in Epping. I think we could class him a local lad.

Some of his favourite pass times include golfing (yahoo), skiing and relaxing with a good book when time permits. Joseph is also a keen AFL follower and supports Sydney's own GWS Giants. 

Joseph is looking forward to starting his university study (BA in Phycology Honours & BA in Logistics & Brain Science) at Macquarie University. He's enjoying his new job working in the Club so please make him welcome with a smile or g’day next time you see him.
