As I am sure you are aware, last Saturday at 5:00pm regional NSW was included in the restrictions for the control of COVID-19. Kevin has been communicating by email the details of the restrictions, the changes to the golf competitions and the local rules regarding play under the COVID plan.
The local rules are as they were last year and they are as follows;
These local rules are issued with the approval of Golf NSW under the guidelines provided by the R & A and the USGA.
Local Rule CV 1 – Scoring
- Players are to enter their own hole scores on the scorecard (it is not necessary for a marker to do it).
- It is not necessary to have a marker physically certify the player's scores, but some form of verbal certification should take place within the group.
- Players are required to leave the Flagsticks in the hole at all times.
- A ball at rest in the hole will be considered to be holed even if it is not entirely below the level of the hole.
- Preferred Lies may be taken when the ball lies in a bunker through the general area.
The ball washers are out of service, the rakes are out of the bunkers and the access to water on the course is not in service.
Please ensure you carry enough water and fluids for your round of golf.
The MiClub bookings page has been updated to reflect the two player rules. This is for the foreseeable future. Please refer to your booking emails or the booking page to ensure you have a tee time or know if your tee time has altered slightly.
Presentations will not be held, so go to the MiClub page and look at the Leaderboard or the competition and click on Results to find the details.
Our greens staff are still working and keeping our course in great condition so we can continue to enjoy the game of golf.

We owe a great big "Thank you" to our merry band of workers - Dad's Army. The clearing of the undergrowth adjacent to the path at the 8th green has transformed this part of the course.
I would also like to thank John McGuire for his work as well on this project.
If you have a couple of hours free on a Thursday morning and enjoy great camaraderie then contact me or Anton Sanger for more information.

Upcoming Golf Events...
This event was first played in 1951, however the trophy went missing between 1973 and 2002. It's in the cabinet and will be up for grabs on Saturday.
The JW Draper knock out will be postponed while we understand how long the restrictions on the number of players will be in place.
Enjoy the longer days and warmer sunshine.
