The current COVID rules will remain in place as the regional health rules have been extended. As always we will keep you posted of any changes. Thank you all for your adherence to the current COVID protocols.
From recent government announcements and health advice the quickest way back to having our Club House open and playing in groups of 3 and 4 is for high levels of vaccinations, so please consider getting the vaccinations if you have not done so already.
Anniversary Dinner and Trophy Vouchers
Following a recent submission to the board relating to the Anniversary Dinner and vouchers/prizes, the Board has decided upon the following.
The Anniversary Dinner will move from being an annual dinner to a dinner event which will celebrate significant milestone occasions for the Club. The next Anniversary Dinner is scheduled to celebrate the Club's 125th year in 2026.
The trophy and championship winners will be recognised with a Presentation Dinner to be held soon after the completion of the Club Championships in November. This year's presentation dinner is scheduled for the Saturday the 13th of November 2021.
This year all trophy winners will receive a voucher to the presentation dinner as will the Championship winners; the same practice as in recent years.
Then, from next year, 2022, all trophy winners with the exception of Club Championships will have their accounts credited to the value of the voucher on the day of the event, Championship winners will be awarded vouchers to the Presentation dinner.

8th & 9th Fairway Drainage
We had been keen to get a rain system come through to test out the work carried out in May, we had around 90mm of rain last week and I'm glad to report the new work handled it very well. On Saturday the flow through the 9th pipe and 8th fairway drain was still a considerable amount. Click the photo to enlarge...
You may have noticed the 3rd tee had a "boy prune". The hedge has been removed to keep this tee looking like the sixteenth tee. The removal reduces maintenance and player frustration when "not the best shot" gets lost in the hedge. The 3rd tee sign was recently relocated to a safer position for those on the 2nd hole.
Monday and Tuesday will be the greens, tee box and fairway renovations. With that comes the "greenskeepers revenge" formats. A bit of fun as we move into Spring. Enjoy.
Another strong field of 88 entrants, great to see.
The winner with 40 points was Alan Turpie and running up was David Bickford with 39. David won the A grade, while Patrick Lane took B Grade and Kevin Burke with a great 38 points won C Grade.
Sunday - Medley Stableford
Thomas Madigan with 42 points won the day with Daniel Weekes runner up on 38. Well done.
Monday Medely Stableford
Brenton Aggar to honours with 34 points on a count back from our visitor from Moss Vale Owen Babula.
Next Wednesday following the course renovations is the Greenskeepers Revenge - a 2 ball Ambrose format. A bit of fun to ensure the sun keeps shining!!
