Brilliant 20th JAK Weekend 2019

Eudunda Golf Club – Weekend 7th – 8th September 2019

Back to the JAK had so many special Moments for it’s 20th Year and combined with the Legacy Day on Saturday made a ripper weekend for all.

The Eudunda Golf Clubs 20th JAK Golfing weekend was easily one of the best the club in its long history has ever witnessed.

So much emotion, care and consideration was given to the 50 plus players, visitor and volunteers and it showed by the willingness to linger well into the night on both Saturday and Sunday before departing.

President Lynley welcomed everyone on both days allowing all a free reign to the facilities both club and playing even to the point of picking up an extra 22 people for dinner on Sunday from the Mt Lofty Caravanning Club who were drawn to the Golf Club by its presentation of the event.

Captain Bistro once again stole the show at the start of proceedings by asking for a minutes silence to assist in all to remember our loved ones and as each name of past-away Fathers and Friends on the memorial way were called out at this moment the emotions were running high. Names such as Jack, Florence and David Knight, Jack Sayers, Mark Eckermann, Mick and Kaitlin Crowhurst, Dave Bell, Don and Leigh Maynard, John and Joan Schultz, Chas and Charlie Handke, Don Rhode, Bruno Gehling, Grahame Minge, Bob Sando who are so important to the history of the club were totally appreciated.

The Weekend started with the Edgar Zander Legacy Ambrose on Saturday which was eagerly contested but the most interest was shown at the Legacy Hole # 7 where Captain Bistro teased players with all sorts of challenges raising money for Legacy. The monies raised was added to the Legacy Poker night on Saturday evening along with the Legacy raffle and a wonderful figure was realized once again. Well done to all involved and thank you once again for a lighthearted appreciation of the game of golf.

The JAK Memorial on the Sunday morning saw Des Pfeiffer once again cooking a beautiful breakfast as the players arrived and after registering and the introductions were completed the players lined up to watch Mitch Kingston; JAK’s Great Grandson hit the first ball to start and enjoyed what was believed to be a beautiful day. At the halfway mark the heavens opened which in turn saw the players hastily making their way back to the club house as a group and enjoying the camaraderie and the beautiful 3 course lunch prepared by the lady members of the club and might we say was easily one of the best meals we have had in the 20 year history of the JAK.

Once the rain cleared the players gingerly took on the 2nd nine where to everyone’s joy saw the rain had totally clearing and the afternoons play enjoyed in much calmer weather. Many golfing stories were shared and raffles won in the 19th hole were much appreciation was granted to the Cooks, Bar Staff, Course maintenance, Official Photographers and event set up staff in the form of a thank you pennant for a job well done. There were also many trophies given out for the players efforts. Captain Bistro and Bill Knight conducted the presentations where the following results were realized.
