- 4th Fairway Extensions are physically complete, and as can be seen in the photographs, the grass is starting to appear. This will be a very welcome improvement to the course when it is re-opened. The area in concern is marked as "Compulsory GUR".
- Also completed during the past week is the repair to the defect beside the 3rd green. This area is also marked "Compulsory GUR". (see photo)
- A reminder that the protocols which were introduced to cater for the restrictions brought about by the Coronavirus are still in place. They are available on past issues of the blog and on the club noticeboard and in the pro shop.
- Divots!!!! There was always the comment that "it's the visitors who are not repairing their divots". Well, we have not been accepting visitors for several weeks, and the situation of un-repaired divots is still a major issue. I implore all players to please fix their divots after playing the shot (and the practice divots as well!). There is a plentiful supply of sand, so there is no excuse. When filling the hole with sand, please fill to the level of the surrounding soil only, if you leave the sand in a pile, it can add unwanted wear to the blades of the mowers. As you walk down the fairway, if you see a divot which has not been filled, please fill it. 'nuf said, thank you.
If you missed the meal on offer last week, you really missed out on a delicious serving. This week Regina is providing the 6th edition of the club takeaway service. The following is a copy of the email from Tim Davis.
Good morning everyone,
Here we are in week 6 of our takeaway menus. I trust that you are all remaining safe and well.
Thank you so much for all who have supported this initiative. I have just been looking at some figures which are amazing. So far the team have prepared and served 473 main courses, 468 Desserts and 69 Soups. Last week's menu surpassed the previous weeks with 133 Coq au Vin and 134 Vanilla Brûlée.
This week the pick-up days are Friday and Saturday.
The menu for this week is a Mother's Day theme:
2 course Meal ($25 per person)
Glazed Ham with Colcannon, Pea Fricassée and Parsley Sauce
Apple and Pear Crumble served with Thickened Cream
Soup ($10 per person)
Roasted Tomato and Red Pepper
We are also offering our entire wine list for takeaway at a 10% discount. When collecting your food have a look at the blackboard behind the bar for even more wine specials.
Payment to be made at the time of collection, only by EFTPOS (tap only) or BGC Member number. Cash payments cannot be accepted.
Please order by email to email@example.com or phoning 4861 1042 (option 4), with the number of meals and selections. Orders must be in by 5pm on Tuesday 5 May 2020.
When ordering please nominate a collection day of either Friday or Saturday. Collection times will be staggered and I will advise of your time for pick up.
Don't forget to recycle those brown paper bags. Drop them back into the club and we will re-use them for future orders.
Finally, I have been asked if you have to be a member to order our delicious takeaway. Certainly not. Feel free to forward this email to family and friends.
I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Wednesday 29th April. With 86 players in the field for the competition, the trigger was pulled to provide for 3 'runners-up' prizes for the first time since it's introduction. For those unaware of the change, as a result of the much larger fields on either a Wednesday (in excess of 70) or a Saturday (in excess of 90) a prize (equal to the normal runners-up prize) will be paid to the best score in each division in addition to the normal winners prize. Alan Lindsay (23), with 4 birdies, scored 45 points to win the event from Warwick Kiernan (34) with 43 for 'C' grade, Paul Barnes (16) with 39 for 'B' grade and Paul Pettiford (12) with 35 points for 'A' grade. The balls were won down to 35 points on count back.
Sunday 3rd May. A much better day than the previous one, but still windy and very cold. 29 players presented to play the Blue course, with Dougal Ethel (22) posting 42 points to win from Josh Whitfield (25) with 36 points. Balls were won down to 34 points on count back.
Monday 4th May. Another new event at BGC. The "Monday Madness" event has been introduced for the month of May, but may be extended if numbers warrant. The event is played on the White course. Winning the inaugural Monday Madness was Bryan Frith (28) with a score of 39 points from Bob Bearup (17) with 37 points on a four-way count back. Balls were won down to 37 on count back.
The mystery continues this week, as no winning guesses were registered last week. The clue for this week,
"I am a past winner of one of the Club's Foursomes Championship formats", who am I?
