Golf can continue as normal, however, we will not be accepting green fee players or members guests from all of Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast, and Wollongong during this period.

Platinum Sponsor - 1st Tee
Our Platinum Sponsor for the first tee, Brad Thompson from Superb Design & Interiors in Mittagong are offering a 10% discount to BGC members upon presentation of your members card.
We all have an individual responsibility to play the game of golf safely. That means not only considering the safety of other players but also our own safety.
The new path installed from the 8th green to the 9th tee box MUST be used by all players accessing the 9th tee. This eliminates the risk of being hit by a ball played by the group behind you on the 8th hole.
A sign will be installed adjacent to the eight green for players information.
Sunday week ago David Ferguson (HCP 1) had a great round of golf against a very talented field of 80. David played the front nine four under par and the back nine three over to tie for the lead at 1 under 70. Unfortunately David missed out on winning the play off.
Fantastic result and a great representative for Bowral Golf Club.
John Owens 4BBB Knock Out
Last Tuesday the final of the John Owens was battled out. It was a great match with some frayed nerves on display as well as some well executed par saving putts. The winners were Tony Fitzpatrick and Jim Phillips. Runners up Ash Southon and Nick Reinhard.
Well done to Langdon Emery with 36 points on a count back from John Buchanan. NTP 11th won by Patrick Lane. Langdon also won the PRO PIN.
A solid turnout of seventy players on a wet course, numbers were down due to "no carts". It is always a tough decision to restrict carts for any competition day as a lot of members miss out on the playing the game. Until we get an "all weather cart path" we will have to protect the course from damage. Hopefully we get this "all weather path" in the near future.
Our visitor from Campbelltown Golf Club, Owen Turner was the winner with 35 points and runner up was David Ferguson with 34 points. James Pinkstone won the NTP on the 11th and Paul Barnes took home the proceeds from the PRO PIN.
This has been extended to eighteen holes and on a cold overcast Bowral winters day Ash Southon won with a respectful 39 points from Nick Reinhard (points not mentioned to minimise embarrassment). You can always ask him how he went.
As mentioned a number of times, the entries for the J W Draper, handicapper foursomes knock out closes this Wednesday, last chance to put your manes on the entry sheet opposite the score card scanner n the club house.
The Bruce Smith Cup, BGC vs MVGC, 4BBB competition is on the 25th of July, we need to finalise numbers by Wednesday this week. It's a great opportunity to represent your club.
