- The course is very rapidly improving in appearance and the leaves are popping out everywhere! Rain over the weekend has helped wash in the sand and the greens will be in great condition by the weekend. Players will have noticed the new 3rd tee (Blue course) is almost complete and the watering systems have been laid for the extended 7th tee and the new 15th tee. In addition, drains have been dug to assist with the wet area to the front of the 4th tee (Red course). The extension of the fairway on the 3rd will be completed when the sprinkler part arrives.
- It's amazing how much work has been achieved with this poor old tipper/trailer. The deck has been replaced at least once, the rear section required removal after it collapsed and the sides no longer function. The subframe is badly twisted. However, it has survived to get the paths to the stage they are at present, but alas it is time for the trailer to be retired. The club is currently sourcing a replacement, so if anyone has a hydraulic tipper/trailer in their shed which can carry up to 3 tonnes, we are interested.
I almost don't have the words to describe how delicious the Tarragon Chicken was last week! Here's just one, yummo!! Following is Tim's email for week 26!!!!

A very busy competition season is upon us. I have provided below a short summary of each of the major trophies which will feature over the next 5 weeks.

They are also on the club noticeboard and in the pro shop.

Players wishing to have their scores considered for the 'Open' championship and who hold a daily handicap greater than 12 should advise the pro shop before the close of play on the 2nd round.

The best placed players will then contest a match play knock out final series. The finals are over 36 holes for each of the 'Open' matches and 18 holes for 'B' and 'C' grade matches.

BGC has a strong tradition of representing the club in the White Horse Cup. This is a great opportunity to play other courses in the Illawarra region in February and March and hone your match play skills. We are looking for squad of 20 players in order to enter two teams. Registration sheets are on the notice boards. As the saying goes, you have to be in it to win it, who knows 2021 might just be that year.
Wednesday 16th September. The September Open day attracted 72 players into the field for the 4BBB competition. Scoring was very strong with the winning team of Martin Flaxman (24) and Peter Procopis (29) posting 52 points to beat Noel Davis (27) and Ric Denny (28) by 5 points. Balls were won down to 44 points via count back.
Friday 18th September. The "Nugget". Only a small field on this occasion with Gil Levy (26) posting 23 points to win from Vince O'Connor (26) on 20, Sharon Rowe (34) on 18 and Jim Rowe (12) with 17 points via a count back. Balls won down to 16 points.

The 'B' grade medal was won by Tom Dunlop (20) on a count back from Les Brooker (18) with a score of net 65.
The 'C' grade medal was won by Graham Oldfield (27) with his amazing net 59 from Vince O'Connor (26) with a net 66.
The best scratch score on the day went to John Mulholland with his 75.
Players needed to play to their handicap to feature in a count back to win a ball.
The John McMaster Medal. This trophy has been won by Langdon Emery with his net 63 being the best eligible score posted. The Covid situation is preventing formal presentations but, as luck might have it Langdon was in the clubhouse when the results were posted so it was great to see a player enjoy receiving his trophy on the day. Congratulations.
Monday 21st September. Monday Madness over 9 holes. Just a small field, but Scott Olding (13) claimed his second win in as many days with 20 points on a count back from Murray Fox (35). Balls won down to 18 points.
