November 25. Kenny Crenshaw won his second match play title after defeating Notah Kelly 5 & 4 in The Pinnacle's championship match. The final never reached any great heights after Crenshaw cruised to a lead of 4 up after only 7 holes.
So complete and one-sided was the victory, former President Seve Hemosteros left the presentation area early to attend the Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory soccer match. "It couldn't be any worse than the crap served up today," opined the harsh critic of the club's playing standard.
Crenshaw's win comes on the back of a remarkable run - this was his third consecutive final. He played off 9 when he lost to Grantief Goosen (2015), 6 when he lost to Java Haas (2017) and 3 in this year's final. His 2019 handicap, +2, reflects that success.
September 19. President Love has confirmed dates for next year's "31 Unlucky for Some Tour".
World Series of Golf XXXI will be held the week of May 13-17 with Shelly Beach already locked in for Friday's stroke round.
This early confirmation will allow for better planning and hopefully eliminate the possiblity of members being double booked by their household guardians.
September 3. Chris Ryan has won the club's 2018 NRL Tipping Competition after selecting a perfect round (10 winners) on the last weekend and pocketed $2,000 for his efforts.
Chris tallied 304 pts to finish two points clear of 2014 winner Jemima Todd ($1500) with a further point to Peter Escott ($1000) who lamented a last minute try off a forward pass in the Gold Coast-NQld game cost him a share of the winner's spoils. 4th ($600) and 5th ($400) went Vanessa McCoy (298 pts) and Mark Adams (296 pts).

May 18. Seve Hemosteros (pictured), the man primarily responsible for the creation of the Earlwood Social Golf & Euchre Club, has won the club's milestone 30th World Series of Golf.
Entering the final round at Shelly Beach as one of 3 co-leaders, the big-hitting sometime Blue Bay resident saw off their title aspirations and then repelled the late challenge of Peard Fulke to record his 4th Central Coast victory (previously won 1989, 1996 and 2003).
Fulke's late run was a welcome return to form for the veteran NRL Interchange Official and he was joined on the podium by 3rd place-getter, the uber-consistent Kenny Crenshaw.
The World Series of Euchre was played on May 16 at The Entrance Hotel Euchredome during the week-long '30 For 30 Tour'.
The knock-out event was held after Wednesday's races and began with the all important draw for partners conducted by "Six Card" Sheedy B.Eu (Hons), the Earlwood Euchre University's professor emeritus. According to the wily old matchmaker last year's winners, Tubby Waldorf and the good professor himself, started at long odds to team up let alone go back to back.
