30 YEARS THAT CHANGED
THE WORLD OF GOLF & EUCHRE

OUR TOURING HISTORY IN STORY

EARLWOOD TIME

EARLWOOD STOCK EXCHANGE

The ESX's sole stock, Beercoin (BCN), is currently trading steady at $6.30.

This listed price is underpinned by the cost of a schooner of Resch's served in the public bar of The Entrance Hotel during the World Series of Golf (1 schooner = 1 Beercoin).

ESX All Ordinaries down 3 pts to 5,957.

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".

The club's first inaugural [sic] President, Seve Hemosteros, will lead a delegation of World Series pioneers - current President Davidson Love III, Jose-Mumma Olazabal, Big Jack Daley, past office bearers Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson, Java Haas (Presidents) and Tubby Waldorf (Handicapper) - travelling to The Entrance in early May to re-enact some of the many highlights from the early tours.

OUR HISTORY IN PIXELS

1990.  The early pioneers gather on the practice green at the R&A

Early 90's.  Dick Faldo (pre-knighthood) and the club's inaugural President, Seve Hemosteros

Big Jack Daley and Seve Hemosteros.  Despite all appearances, large moustaches were not compulsory

The club's first handicapper, Tubby Waldorf, and Tack Nicklaus.  Really, they weren't compulsory!

Dick Faldo, Seve Hemosteros (seated) and Garry Mize at Toukley's 19th hole.  And again, they weren't compulsory and, with the benefit of hindsight, very fashionable either

Wimbledon's finest net court judge, Tack Tinling, officiated at the early World Series of Tennis tournaments modelling his very chic "Leisure & Pleasure" range

Before Bernard Tomic was "Bjorn", Big Jack Daley ruled the El Lago courts with his fancy pants, potty mouth and ruthless forehand

circa 1993-94.  Like the immutable laws of physics, somethings are just universally acknowledged

1994.  El Lago stigmata?  The local handyman was unable to discover the source of a puddle formed in the image of Jesus that miraculously appeared underneath Per-Ulrik's front door each morning

1994.  (l to r) Davidson Love, Steve Bangels, the late Vijay Field and Costantino Blocker having a 'round or two for a pound or two', alongside a youthful Soldier Montgomerie at The Entrance Hotel

1994.  Euchre match at The Entrance Hotel - (l to r) spectators Notah Kelly, Shigeki Moroneyama and Tubby Waldorf and players Garry Mize, Dick Faldo, Costantino Blocker and Seve Hemosteros

1994.  Enjoying an afternoon of The Entrance Hotel hospitality are Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson, Java Haas, Shigeki Moroneyama and Notah Kelly

1994.  Shenanagins at the El Lago.  Java Haas, Dick Faldo and Seve Hemosteros were not permitted to room together again after this worrying scene was reported to authorities

1999.  Day 1 at Morisset - Soldier, Tack, Hunter, JPY, Tubby, Costantino, Per-Ulrik, Davidson, Jose-Mumma, Java and Kenny which leaves Notah Kelly as our photographer

1999.  Like Ian McDonald, it wasn't the first cheque that legal eagle Tack Nicklaus received at a dinner table for services rendered.  Unlike Ian McDonald, this one was delivered over the table.

1999.  Players, mostly outfitted in their Crown Lager polos, relaxing at The Entrance Hotel

2000 World Series winner, Jose-Mumma Olazabal, gleefully accepts the winner's cheque

Assisted by Java Haas and watched by Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson, Jose-Mumma Olazabal adopts his best Fonzie pose as he dons the coveted winners green VB jacket

2000.  The ill-fated World Series of Lawn Bowls blighted the otherwise blemish-free reign of Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson

2000.  Why pay for one idiot (Tack Nicklaus on the right) when you can get two (just add Kenny Crenshaw) for the same price?

2000.  The Entrance Table of Quiet Schooner Contemplation - Tiger Wood, Costantino Blocker, Davidson Love and Soldier Montgomerie

2000.  Kenny Crenshaw, Danny White Shark, Tubby Waldorf, Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson and Seve Hemosteros watch another favourite get "helmiched"

2000.  Hard to believe Tiger Wood (green shirt) was soon to be excommunicated from the ESG&EC after entering the priesthood.  He was charged with bringing the club into disrepute by wilfully displaying morals and/or religious tendencies

2000.  The tournament can be an arduous week as evidenced by Tack Nicklaus falling asleep in the middle of a game of euchre

2000.  Day 1 at Morisset - Kenny, Costantino, Tubby, Big Jack, Soldier, Java, Per-Ulrik, Jose-Mumma, Tack, Vijay, Tiger, Davidson and Danny which leaves Hunter Meehan as our photographer

2000.  Costantino Blocker, Davidson Love, Big Jack Daley and Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson enjoying a few beers in The Entrance Hotel.  The formative seeds of a later grab for power by Davidson and Big Jack were probably sown on these clearly intimate occasions

2007 Match Play.  Three wise monkeys (Tubby Waldorf, skip one, Java Haas and Tack Nicklaus) and a bunny (JPY Hayes 2nd from left)

Players and spectators mingle for a greenside chat at the 13th hole during the 2007 Match Play Championship

After an alleged incident at the 2007 Match Play, our drinks carts drivers, Bluey Dunk and Phillips Mickelson, were required to obtain Working With Children and Irresponsible Service of Alcohol certificates

2007 Match Play.  Early groups at the R&A 18th hole amphitheatre enjoy refreshments from the drinks carts as they wait for the stragglers to finish

2008.  Jose-Mumma Olazabal duly acknowledged for his hole in one at Kooindah Waters' 149 metre Par 3 2nd hole

2008.  Garry Mize, Seve Hemosteros and Cavey Pavin at Shelly Beach for the final round of the World Series

Soldier Montgomerie, Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson and Peard Fulke at Shelly Beach for the final round of the 2008 World Series

2008.  Tack Nicklaus looks like he's all business, which is quite a rare thing, before the final round of the World Series

On a cool and overcast morning, competitors gather at Shelly Beach for the final round of the 2008 World Series

2010.  The stormy early morning view from the Costa Plenti apartments

On a mild late autumn morning, competitors gather at Shelly Beach for the final round of the 2010 World Series

2010 Match Play.  Less energetic spectators wait for players to go up the hill on the 4th hole and return down on the 5th

2010 Match Play.  With the aid of the drinks cart, Brown's cows make the journey up the 4th and down the 5th hole

2010 Match Play Champion Peard Fulke and runner-up, David Koch er, no, sorry that's a perspiring Karrie White

2012.  Big Jack Daley and Cavey Pavin join The Entrance fashion revolution

2012.  The roof top terraces of the Costa Plenti penthouses

2012 sunrise - looking across Tuggerah Lake to North Entrance from the roof top terraces of the Costa Plenti penthouses

Java Haas enjoying the scenic views at Shelly Beach during the final round of the 2012 World Series

2012.  This foursome of shit golfers (Big Jack Daley 18th, Davidson Love 15th, Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson 20th and Bourkie Baird 19th) won the award for the slowest group ever as judged and witnessed by Seve Hemosteros in the group behind.

2012.  JPY Hayes at Shelly Beach's 18th hole

2014 Match Play finalists, Boo Boo Weekley and Sir Dick Faldo

Boo Boo Weekley (centre of front row in dark pinstripe), the 2014 Match Play Champion, enjoying a few celebratory drinks with the vanquished in the R&A clubhouse

Big Jack Daley, Seve Hemosteros, Henney Stenson and Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson at Gosford, Day 1 of the 2015 World Series

Edwardo Romero, Notah Kelly, Java Haas and Bourkie Baird at Gosford, Day 1 of the 2015 World Series

Players take refuge undercover as officials make the inevitable decision to cancel the final round of the 2015 World Series

Heavy rain at Shelly Beach washes out the final round of the 2015 World Series
