Beautiful golfing weather continues which makes for an enjoyable time regardless of the flight patterns of the little white ball.  It has been flying straight and true for some with Chris Dunn winning A grade on Saturday with a solid 39 points from a two handicap.  Peter Robertson won B grade with 36 pts and Anthony Johnson fired a stirling 45 points to win C grade.

Liam Walder was the best of 97 players on Wednesday to take out the Pro Comp with a fine score of 43 points.

The women’s competition on Thursday saw Di Robinson continue her excellent form of the last few weeks to register a fine 44 point round from a handicap of nine.

Work will start on the excavations at the new cart shed site on Monday and at the same time a restructure of the rear one-third of the ninth green will take place. This will obviously have some impact on play and members are requested to have patience and take care when playing the ninth.

Recently there has been a number of occasions when members have complained about various matters directly to ground staff.  This behaviour is forbidden.  Complaints of any nature should be directed to the Club Manager, Kerry Bond, or if they concern the condition of the course to Greens Chairperson, Bruce Leishman.  Thank you.

Junior golfers are reminded that a one hour long junior clinic is held every Saturday at 3.00 pm and also that membership fees for under 14 year old golfers are only $25 per annum.

This week of golf started with perfect weather conditions enjoyed on Tuesday by the new ladies which was taken out by Ann Rendell. Then on Wednesday saw Kevin Johnson take advantage of the conditions with a wonderful score of plus 6 just edging out Adrian Crosier with plus 5.

Thursday was the final round of the ladies championships and a great tussle it was with the 3rd round leaders trying to hold onto their advantage.  The weather was absolutely perfect for golf and Di Robinson 74 (10) 64 and Helen Rix 85 (26) 59 took full advantage. However they would both come up just short of their quest to be named Club Champion in their respective grades. In A Grade Anne Dwyer steadied on the 16th to make par and hold off the fast finishing Di Robinson, who equalled her own course record of 74. The B Grade championship was won by Beryl Duncan who had set up a commanding lead over the first 3 rounds. While the C Grade champion had to be decided by a play-off which was a close affair but Julie Carter held her nerve to win. Congratulations to all club champions.

Also on Thursday there were two day events: the stroke event of the day was won by Helen Rix with a superb 85 (26) 59 nett from Di Robinson with 74 (10) 64 nett. The stableford event was won narrowly by Mary Graham 36 points from Peg Nitschke 35 points.

Then by Saturday the weather had started to turn with the more familiar winds returning to test the golfing skills of all. This did not have a great affect as the scores as Robert Sherwood winning A Grade with a 67 nett followed closely by Gerard Lynch with a 68 nett.  B Grade was won by Neil Ferguson with a great score of 63 nett from Greg Bacon with a 66 nett. C Grade was a another close one with Tiger Wettenhall 68 nett narrowly beating John O’Sullivan with a 69 nett.  Kate Holcombe was the best of the ladies with 65 nett from Anne Dwyer with 70 nett.

Then on Monday with wind, rain and the occasional patch of sunshine the Social Club played a 4BBB Stableford event with 31 players braving the weather. The winners David Newton and Anthony Wright survived to record a winning score of 42 points from Jay Everall and C Eales with 40 points on a count back.
