According to the Cambridge Dictionary, a Rogue is “a dangerous wild animal that lives apart from the rest of its group.”
And so it was on a windy but beautiful Friday afternoon at Palm Hill Golf Club that three rogue Sharks found themselves separated from the rest of the JAWS Clan.
The course was close to empty and ready for the taking as Sashvat, Pras and John initiated their attack. A big welcome to Sashvat on his first round with JAWS!
Sashvat came out with beautiful form and his drives were long but not always true. He struggled some on the front 9 but found some great moments on the back including pars on the 16th and 18th holes.
Pras found a tree on the first drive of the round that led him to a slow start but his big drives eventually found the fairways. Both he and John struggled on the greens. John was consistent off the tees but had too many yip chips. It was a truly fantastic day for the three Rogues!
Again, a big welcome to Sashvat and many thanks to Palm Hill management for making it a great day.

So what is the Mulligan Challenge ?
IMAGINE HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO HIT EVERY SHOT TWICE
BE IT A DRIVE , IRON , CHIP OR A PUTT ….
CAN YOU THEN PLAY TWICE AS BETTER ?
With this basic format , the JAWS Mulligan Challenge will be played at the Jagorawi Old course on the 18th of December.

BEHAVIOUR AND RULES
Over the last few rounds there has been some chatter over the Rules of Golf and Golf etiquettes
Golf is a game for ladies and gentleman, so when one goes for a round of golf be it: social or tournament golf one is required to behave as a lady or a gentleman and abide by golfing etiquette.
Yes, JAWS is a golf society promoting camaraderie and fun on the course but abiding by our societies rules of etiquette we can assure you of a much better and valuable golfing experience for your playing partners and yourself.
Not only must we uphold our reputation as a society at golf courses, don’t forget to value your own reputation as a golfer on and off the golf course, after all… we are all gentlemen and ladies who choose to play a ladies and gentlemen’s game.
