This is my final contribution to DIVOTS. It is not the end of my association with the DOOLEYS SOCIAL GOLF CLUB. At the last Board meeting in February, BILL BELKOVSKIS resigned as Patron of the Golf Club. The Board appointed myself as the new Patron. So, hopefully, I will be around for some years to come.

            I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Golf Club to thank BILL for all his years of dedicated service to the DOOLEYS Social Golf Club. We all thank and congratulate BILL for his leadership as Patron. Congratulations BILL and enjoy your retirement.

            I have had a long association with the Golf Club. The Club was formed initially

 in 1966 when the Association of Catholic Clubs decided to form a Golf Association. From memory the members of the Association were Bankstown, Ashfield, City, Eastern Suburbs, Lidcombe, Pendle Hill and maybe Liverpool. Over the years Bankstown, Eastern Suburbs and Pendle Hill have folded and Campbelltown subsequently joined the Association when they were established. Unfortunately the Association has now folded.

            I believe that in 1956/57 JOHN FINLAY organised Picnic and Golf days at Rouse Hill. Other families joined and eventually Golf days were arranged a week prior to the game and were played at Glenmore. It was always a happy group of Golfers who set out on Saturday mornings with JOHN FINLAY’S truck (and the keg) leading the way. Playing on a Sunday was never considered. Christen men firmly believed that Sunday was a day worship.

            The first meeting of the LCWC Golf Club was held in early 1967. MICK SMITH was elected President. BOB WALKER, Secetary and JOHN FINLAY, Treasurer. Twelve (12) players attended the first game and the second game at Greenlands was attended by Seventeen (17) players. I attended this game having missed

the first game as I was in Manus Island.

            In the early years the LCWC was purely for men only. On pacific occasions, females were invited to attend the club but were never allowed in the top bar. It was not until 1971 that women were permitted to join the Club as Associated member’s and it was some years later before they were recognised as full members.

            Since this second game I have attended 560 games and recorded scores in 509.28 games excluding Ambrose Games and games which I was unable to play in. I will attend some future games as Patron but my playing days are over, due to health concerns.

A couple of Irish jokes to keep in the spirit of St Patrick’s day


  1. “Young man,” said the judge, looking sternly at the defendant. “It’s alcohol and alcohol alone that’s responsible for your present sorry state! ”I’m glad to hear you say that,” replied Murphy, with a sigh of relief. ”Everyone else says it’s all my fault!”


  1. An Irishman went for an interview with one of the major blue chip computer companies.

When the interview was over the interviewer told him that all applicants had to complete a test. The interviewer took a piece of paper and drew six vertical lines in pairs of two on the paper and placed it in front of the Irishman.

 “Could you please show me a clever way to make this into nine?”

After thinking for a while, the Irishman took the pencil and drew a canopy of leaves on top of the three pairs of lines, and handed the paper back to the interviewer.

The interviewer looked at the drawings and said: “But that is not nine!”

“Oh yes it is” said the Irishman with a broad Irish accent, “Tree + Tree + Tree make nine!”

The interviewer handed the paper back to the Irishman and asked him to make it 99.

After thinking for a long while the Irishman scribbled up and down the trunks and handed the paper back to the interviewer.

The interviewer looked at the drawings and said: “But that is not ninety-nine!”

“Oh yes it is” said the Irishman, “Dirty tree + dirty tree + dirty tree make ninety-nine.”

The interviewer was now a bit cheesed off so he decided to do the Irishman once and for all, therefore, he handed the paper back to the Irishman and asked him to make it 100.

After thinking for a considerably longer time the Irishman suddenly grabbed the pencil and drew a little blob on the bottom right-hand side of each tree and handed the paper back to the interviewer.

The interviewer looked at the drawings and said: “But that is not 100!”

 “Oh yes it most certainly is”, said the Irishman with a much broader Irish accent,

“Dirty tree and a turd + dirty tree and turd + dirty tree and a turd, make a 100”
