In order to show our appreciation as Bowral Golf Club members of our Trophy winners and Club Champions, the annual Presentation Night was held on Saturday. A loyal band of 56 members and guests watched in admiration as all trophy winners for 2016 received their trophy, a Certificate of Achievement and the applause of the congregation. Many made speeches, which were welcome and the mood of the night was uplifting and worthy of the formal attire worn. It was a pleasure to pay homage to our winners and offer our congratulations on their success. Although they can't take the trophies home, the dinner gave them a chance to at at least hold, rub and in some cases kiss their reward and note their name engraved for prosperity. To all those who received trophies and to those that came so close as runners up, I wish to offer my sincere congratulations and thank you for attending the dinner and making it such a great night. Unfortunately our Club Champion Alex Mulholland, that's three in a row, could not be with us as he is furthering his career prospects in Melbourne, however his father and runner up, John Mulholland accepted the trophy on his behalf.
The draw for this years Arthur Brassey Singles Knockout has been completed by the Pro shop and a copy is attached. You will note that the first round, for those without a bye, must be completed by 22/02/17. Please do not leave it to the last day to organise your match, as there will be no extensions unless there are exceptional circumstance such as an accident or illness, which will require a doctors certificate. Good luck to you all, I wish I was available to play..
Just a reminder that entries for this years Arthur Brassey Handicap Knockout Match Play competition close this Wednesday 01/02/17. So far we have 16 players with 32 required to ensure a complete competition. This is your chance to compete at your own level with handicaps up to 36, which gives you the chance to win this individual event against all comers, including low handicap members. Imagine a 12 handicapper giving you 24 points start. If you haven't tried match play or are daunted by the competitive nature of the event, please have a go as I am sure you will enjoy the experience. The matches are played in good spirit with help from competitors with rules and etiquette and the worst that can happen is that you get knockout in the first round. The best that can happen, you enjoy the benefits of the "Golf Gods" and end up on the pedestal. We look forward to all qualified members meeting the challenge. Please liaise with the Pro Shop who will help you with the sign up.
All members should be aware we are having our Annual Presentation of Awards night this Saturday at 7.00pm for 7.30pm . It is a black tie event, however lounge suits are acceptable dress. So far we have 54 bookings and would like to get that number to 80 if we can. Vouchers have circulated to all 2016 winners, which gives you the chance to come to the event for the cost of a couple of drinks. The feature of the event however, is the acclamation bestowed on our trophy winners and runners up and acknowledgement by members, of our 2016 champions. There are several tables with spare seats, so you are not required to fill your own table. Please book through the bar and they will take you through the seating arrangements. This is an important club event and we encourage you to take advantage of the meal vouchers which have been issued.
