The Jubilee Cup is on again this year on Sunday 24th September at our course, with approximately 100 low marker players vying for a win in this calendared Vardon Event. Due to the inherent winds we experienced last week, which have again dropped debris all over the course and the absolute success of our last working bee, we would like to present the course to look as good as it can for this important event. Our Superintendent has asked for our help. Accordingly we will hold a further working bee on Friday 22nd September at 9.00am until 11.00 am to pick up larger sticks. All members are invited to attend, as many hands make light work. Should you have a ute or trailer, these would be most welcome, although on the day, all you really need is a willing heart and a pair of gloves. Thank you for your assistance in advance.
The Max Allen Memorial Trophy was played for on Saturday 2nd September and won by David Boyd with a very creditable net 65. In keeping with our current policy of trophy presentation, we have delayed presenting the trophy until a suitable time that the winner could be in attendance. This occurred last Sunday after the Medley event. Our photo shows David being presented with this coveted trophy with some 30 odd members acknowledging his achievement. Well done David. It was also great to see Leah in attendance on Sunday.
The small hazard on the 3rd fairway has been filled in by putting a sump in under the Pine trees and adding five lengths of pipe to drain the hazard into the creek. Soil which was stock piled next to the 16th tee was used to cover the pipe. The area was then top soiled and seeded. The bridge will be left for use until the grass has grown and the area repaired as fairway. We are confident that many members will appreciate this improvement. Should you land on the renovated area it is GUR.
On Saturday, one of our lady members was stuck in the thigh by a ball from a visitor on the 8th hole. This was an accident which could have been avoided with a bit of common sense. Although there is a bell between the 8th green and the 9th tee, if you are a visitor and are short of the hill on the 8th fairway, you don't know that there is a bell there or that the green and surrounds are clear for you to have a shot. Whilst we would expect all members to advance to the top of the hill for a look or wait patiently for the bell to ring, we need to place signs on tees which have "blind shots" to the green. These include the 5th, 7th, 8th 10th and 17th. Whilst we will have these signs produced, we can't actually make anyone read them. We respectively ask members to be aware of these blind spots and alert both visitors and players to the danger of hitting up without ensuring the area is clear from other players.
