Sunday Fun-day Competition
The Heads Sunday Fun-day Competitions will continue throughout September. The fixtures for September are:
Sunday 15th September; Bisque Par
Sunday 22nd September; 2 Person Ambrose
Sunday 29th September; International Stableford
Bisque Par - This event is a variation of Individual Par. Each player allocates their handicap hole-by-hole as they like, until they have used their full handicap. You may allocate your handicap before or after playing each hole and record your allocation on the score card. The game is played as an Individual Par competition, and scored in the same fashion (+, 0, -).
2 Person Ambrose – Both players tee off on each hole. The Captain then selects the best drive which is played by its owner. The other member retrieves their ball, drops it within one club-length of the selected position and plays their second shot. This procedure of selecting the best position continues until a ball is holed. When on the green, balls are placed on the selected spot. Your team handicap is ¼ of your combined aggregate stroke handicap.
International Stableford - This event is played the same as a Stableford except for the scoring. You score as follows:
• nett par, 0 points;
• nett birdie, 2 points;
• nett eagle, 5 points;
• nett albatross or better, 8 points;
• nett bogey, minus 1 point; and
• anything worse than a nett bogey, minus 3 points.
Shoalhaven Heads Golf Club - Veterans’ won the Balkwill-Simmons Shield today. The Heads went into the return game at Callala Golf Club today with 31 points lead. While Callala clawed back with 319 to 299 points win, Shoalhaven Heads won the shield.

A true players’ iron, T100 offers confidence-inspiring looks and Tour-quality performance with signature Titleist feel. A new fully-forged cavity construction is balanced by co-forged, dual-density tungsten for precise distance control with exceptional stability.
T200 delivers powerfully playable distance with a tour-inspired look and feel. Max Impact technology spreads maximum speed and distance control evenly across T200’s thin, forged Lface – with high launch and stopping power – to convert near misses into nearly perfect.
T300 offers the most forgiving player’s experience possible with a modern shape that rewards with faster ball speeds and preferred feel. Max Impact technology extends maximum speed across an extremely forgiving mid-size face, powering a fast cavity-back design that delivers the best combination of high launch, long distance and forgiveness.
“There are three key elements to hitting a great iron shot: distance, dispersion and angle of descent,” said Marni Ines, Director, Titleist Irons Development, Golf Club R&D. “T-Series technology helps players carry the ball longer and hit their number more consistently, even when they don’t make a perfect strike. Dispersion is tighter, so the ball stays on target. And trajectory is optimized, so the ball not only lands on the green, but stays there. Length means nothing if you don’t have control.”
