Christmas Cheer 2015
On Sunday, a cheerful lot of 42 golfers headed off with a shotgun start at 9.00am to celebrate this year’s Christmas Cheer with a 4 Person Irish Stableford. The weather was most kind reaching about 21 degrees with minimal wind. Although, drying out in the rough, the course is still in great condition and the competition was fierce. Winners were our President Kevin Burke, Wendy Burke, Warren Ryan and Maggie McKenzie with 113 points on a count back from Carole and Alan Turpie and Rosemary and Terry Downing. What a close finish to win on a count back. Other winners on the day were presented with prizes befitting their success, results sheet attached. Kevin Burke also won the mammoth Pro Pin with a great shot befitting the $15.00 he was awarded. Nominal consolation prizes were handed out to each table for the rest of the “also ran’s” of which there were many. Kevin Kenny cooked the BBQ and Stuart in the Pro Shop administered the paper work. A good day had by all and we look forward to a larger representation next year. Don’t forget free Christmas drinks at the club this Friday at 5.00pm until 6.30pm.
Blandina Meere has been raising funds to replace the chairs and tables in the function room. The Bowral Bridge Club has been generous with a substantial donation. Several members have also pledged funds.. The existing furniture is past its use by date and we want to lift the appearance of the interior of the clubhouse. The board approved her application to ask for member donations, which has resulted in reaching the stage of making a decision of which chairs to purchase. Blandina has placed an example of the chairs and coverings in the club for comment, prior to making the final decision. Should you wish pledge funds or make comment. Blandina would welcome your response. Her number is 4861 4048
