There is always lots of laughter coming from the clubrooms when the 9 holers finish.  Quite a bit of ribbing goes on and  I think sometimes  they've  enjoyed the chips and pies they've purchased more than the golf. 


A good turnout for our closing day with three competitions to contest. The David Brown Memorial Trophy was contested by 6 pairs.  The winners were Sharrie and Phil Gibbons amassing 51 stablefords.  Obviously, great team play there.

Whilst it may be the end of the official club season remember club days continue with tee off at their normal times on their usual days. 

The club is still looking to hire a green keeper and thanks must go to the many volunteers who are putting in many hours keeping the grass mowed and the carts clean along with all of the other jobs they attend to around the course and clubrooms. 

With sun followed by rain I'm sure they must think that the grass grows in front of their eyes.

The volunteers that came last Wednesday were pleasantly surprised when the caterer turned up with hot scones for  their morning tea. Thanks Pete.
