As in all competition in the club, "the cream will rise to the top" however if you do not enter you cannot win. Best of luck to all.
Tees and Greens Renovations
As is the practice twice per year, all tees and greens have been renovated with a light 6-8 mm core with sand raked in and the whole area leveled. The light core gives nearly the same result as heavy coring, however it allows the greens to recover much quicker and has limited effect on play. Given we are ever mindful of keeping the course to the immaculate presentation all members deserve and expect, the coring started on Sunday afternoon with completion this morning. The wonderful help of " Dad's Army" was enlisted and eight of their finest turned up to assist the ground staff with the project. The club owes these gentlemen our many thanks on a great effort. During the break they were offered a small token of appreciation, with a sandwich and drink on the terrace.
Ladies at Croquet
Four ladies spending a very pleasant Monday morning on the Croquet Court. Croquet is held on the court between the club house and pro shop each Tuesday however, it is available for practice or social games when required. Please contact Kevin Kenny to arrange.
Practice on the Course.
One of our dedicated members thought it was worthwhile reminding all members on the policy for practice on our course and submitted the following :
"With many new members to the Club, it may be a good time to reiterate the general rules concerning practice at Bowral Golf Club.
The protection of the Course is paramount. Members are required to be aware of the following rules;
Members may play a practice round on the Course however, no more than TWO BALLS are to be used. Sand Buckets must be carried at all times when practicing and divots repaired."
