2018 - THE 30 FOR 30 TOUR
Monday May 14 through to Friday May 18

STRONG FIELD LIKELY

EARLWOOD TIME

JAVA WORLD SERIES CLOCK

sleeps until World Series XXX ...

CATHOLICS vs. CONVICTS
The 30 Tales for 30 Years Series

Those few words printed in jest on a t-shirt by an savvy and opportunistic member took an already bitter rivalry and lit a blazing fire under it.  In October 1994, Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson (Christian Brothers) battled Seve Hemosteros (Canterbury High) to the death in arguably one of the greatest games in Match Play history.  It was sheer determination vs. swagger, Irish Catholic vs. Protestant, humble public servant vs. corporate heavyweight.  The outcome shocked the sporting world and it's taken nearly 25 years for the players to sit down and tell their stories.

SILLY LITTLE GAMES
The 30 Tales for 30 Years Series

Few of the thousands of players who make up today's multi-million dollar Earlwood Euchre industry know anything about the game's origins, nor do they pay any respect and, more importantly, dividends to it's founders.  That's about to change.  The ESG&EC, a joint custodian of the game, has engaged one of the country's greatest strategic and legal minds, Tack Nicklaus QC, to protect it's commercial interests.

I HATE TUBBY WALDORF
The 30 Tales for 30 Years Series

He had money, butchery smarts, a reverse golf grip and became the first player to achieve the club's coveted home and away double after winning the 1990 Match Play Championship and the 2002 World Series.  So why has Tubby Waldorf been disliked so intensely, by so many, for so long?  Maybe it's the much maligned Saturday morning horse tips or a wardrobe of striped shirts.  But sometimes, perception isn't reality.

DICK FALDO - ALL BY HIMSELF
The 30 Tales for 30 Years Series

He was The Beatles of golf - a charismatic, handsome and slender figure from Engadine who worked wonders with the ball and thrilled galleries wherever he went.  But Dick Faldo was also the lead in a Shakespearean tragedy fuelled by alcohol and the fading memories of old sexual conquests.  We'll talk with the neigbours who nailed a bottle opener to their wooden fence to facilitate his afternoon drinking sessions and meet the only woman from the 'Lender of Last Resort' who spurned his advances - his sister - and ask her the big question:  Does she now regret that rash decision?

FOUR 'DOG' DAYS IN NOVEMBER
The 30 Tales for 30 Years Series

The streak began when he defeated hot shot 6th seed Kenny Crenshaw 3 & 1 in the Round of 16.  A week later, Heckle Sunday, he beat the favoured Tubby Waldorf 2 & 1.  The following Friday he saw off the well-fancied Hunter Meehan 5 & 3.  In the final match he defied the odds to beat Peard Fulke 3 & 1.  Was it skill, good fortune or an old-fashioned and carefuly orchestrated betting coup that turned the perennial underdog, Bourkie Baird, into the 2013 Match Play Champion?

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
The 30 Tales for 30 Years Series

On December 10, 2013, Sotheby's London office auctioned off what could be considered the most important historical document in sports history - Seve Hemosteros' original World Series of Golf blueprint, drawn up at Robo Mediate's Macleay Place residence over a few drinks on Boxing Day, 1988.  This is the story of one man's fanatical quest to win back this seminal artifact at auction and bring the document home to Earlwood where Hemosteros was born and raised.  25 years after he personally witnessed the blueprint's creation, Mediate inspired a group of wealthy benefactors to dream his dream and take a few shares in a couple of greyhounds as well.

THE PRINCE OF PROFANITY
The 30 Tales for 30 Years Series

Reader discretion is recommended - this story may contain frequent coarse language.

The young viscount rescued from a post-apocalyptic Warsaw became infamous in his adopted country when, at the age of 5, the first English words he uttered both contained four-letters, one beginning with F and the other beginning with C.  Sitting for the HSC in 1973, he could not have been any prouder when he was awarded 2 F's and 4 C's by the Board of Studies.  And nearly half a century later, it's hard to discern even the slightest expansion to the now Flemington Fruit Markets f*#klift driver's simple vocabulary.  WTF*#k!!

SMALL POTATOES: WHO KILLED THE PRESIDENTS CUP
The 30 Tales for 30 Years Series

A bold challenge, a fearless experiment and ultimately, a spectacular failure.  In 1999 a new event challenged the establishment's cosy duopoly, the World Series and Match Play Championship, but after a promising start at North Ryde and a final round at Eastlakes less than a decade later, The Presidents Cup disappeared from the ESG&EC sporting calendar.

HIT 'EM HARD - MY LIFE WITH
BIG BALLS, BABES AND BOOZE
The 30 Tales for 30 Years Series

We remember the blonde mullet, a cigarette glued to the lips and those enormous fairway splitting drives that propelled him to victory at the 1995 World Series.  We knew Big Jack Daly as much for those larrikin traits and his large dusters as for the constant drinking, womanising and swearing, mostly done off the course, that forced him into rehabilitation and a premature sporting retirement.

YOU DON'T KNOW BOO BOO
The 30 Tales for 30 Years Series

He's someone who played two sports professionally - golf and soccer.  When speaking to others about him, I noticed something I'd never experienced before.  At the mere mention of his name, people either immediately lit up in excitement or fell over laughing.  Boo Boo's story isn't really a sports story, it's a superhero story.  A superhero who broke his thumb shaking hands before an over 45's game in the Sutherland Shire minor leagues and, as a result, signed on as a marquee player with Sydney FC and became the face of Nike's landmark ad campaign, "You Don't Know Boo Boo".

EARLWOOD NEWS - COSTA PLENTI ACCOMMODATION BOOKED FOR WS XXX

Earlwood, February 21, 2018.

The private sanctuary and cultural oasis, Costa Plenti Estate, will host 13 players during 'The 30 for 30 Tour'.

Messrs Love, Fulke, Hayes, Montgomerie, Kent, Olazabal, Baird, Fatcatsson, Crenshaw, Haas, Waldorf, Stenson and Professor Emeritus Blue "6 Card" Sheedy B.Eu (Hons), the club's onsite gaming manager and croupier, have been allocated a much sought after bed in the luxury, secured compound.

Four apartments have been booked, 2 at Coast Luxury (including Casino Royale) and 2 at Riviera.  Room allocations will be done early May.

EARLWOOD NEWS - LATEST WORLD SERIES TOUR NUMBERS AND NEWS

Earlwood, February 20, 2018.

After receiving a notice of withdrawal from Garry Mize and hearing a whisper that prominent legal identity Tack Nicklaus was considering his options, President Love has a likely field of 22 players for WS XXX.

As well as Mize and Nicklaus, other notable absentees from last year's tourists are Grantief Goosen and Paulking Harrington.  These scratchings have been slightly offset by the confirmed return of 3-time winner JPY Hayes and the probable return of 1995 champion Big Jack Daley.

This later return has put organisers on notice like Michael Caine in Zulu and led President Love to include the African natural disaster options (pestilence, war, famine and death) in our tournament public liability policy.  The ESG&EC has written to The Entrance Chamber of Commerce, the local constabulary and Blue Bay liquor outlets alerting them to Big Jack's likely reappearance.

The week long extravaganza, incorporating two sanctioned World Series events, has been christened 'The 30 for 30 Tour'.

EARLWOOD NEWS - CLUB LAUNCHES BEERCOIN CRYPTOCURRENCY

January 13, 2018

BEERcoin

BEERcoin has been announced as the ESG&EC's digital currency and local payment system.  This exciting new cryptocurrency is underpinned by keg-to-tap-to-peer technology.

After a soft launch at the Earlwood Hotel last night, the club has mined 1,040 coins - one for every entrant in our two golf majors over nearly 30 years.  The cornerstone of BEERcoin's value is the price The Entrance Hotel charges club members for a schooner of Resch's served during our annual May golf pilgrimage.

The Central Coast schooner impost has been rising faster than Sydney house prices and has been a boon to those astute insiders who got in early on the crypto bandwagon.  BEERcoin has a market capitalisation in excess of AUD60 million (1 Entrance Hotel Resch's schooner = 1/10,001 BEERcoin).

BEERcoins can be stored in a digital wallet and used to pay for tournament entry fees, Costa Plenti accommodation, prizemoney and shouts of beer.  The club's first BEERcoin recipient, President Davidson Love III, has become an overnight BEERcoin multi-millionaire with his bulging wallet of 56 coins - one for each of his tournament appearances.  Wallets will be issued to eligible members in a market sensitive manner and at President Love's discretion.

EARLWOOD NEWS - VENUES & COSTS CONFIRMED FOR 2018 WORLD SERIES

EARLWOOD NEWS - JAVA HAAS BREAKS THROUGH GRASS CEILING

Java Haas 2017 Match Play Champion

November 26, 2017

At his 29th attempt, Java Haas has finally won the Match Play Championship after seeing off the challenge of Kenny Crenshaw 2 up.

As a contest, the match was entertaining but as an advertisement for the skills of our golf club, it maintained a well-earned reputation for poor performances at the final hurdle.

Java's long overdue victory gives him entry to a very select group - he becomes the 10th member to have completed the coveted home and away double.
