Celebrating the life of a long-standing member – Richard John Tapper



Many of you will know of the passing of Richard Tapper last month.  What you may not know is that Richard had a lifelong association with the club, and served its members in multiple ways  over several decades. Richard’s family is hosting a celebration of his life at the clubhouse at 1:00pm 31 May. His sister and our club patron, Beverley Pool, cordially invites all club members to attend, and should you feel inclined, share your stories of this remarkable local son.  Much laughter is a certainty!

Lesser Known Golf Facts

Caddies originated in France where French students would carry clubs for golfers to try and earn some extra money. The word itself is derived from the French word “cadet” which is their term for a student.

A non dimpled golf ball will only travel less than half the distance of a dimpled ball. Dimples produce turbulence in the boundary layer flow around the golf ball and reduce the separation point of the flow on the back of the ball. This creates less drag and therefore more distance.

In his first round of golf ever, Kim Jong Il of North Korea claimed to have shot a -38, including 11 hole-in-ones on Pyongyang’s 7700 yard championship course!

Bunkers originated by sheep digging with their hoofs to get out of the wind.
