Beginning today the Golf Club is pleased and excited to present an opportunity for tuition by former golf professional Damian Bates. A clinic for the ladies will be held today at 9.00am with the men’s clinic at 10.00am. This is obviously short notice but the program will continue each Wednesday for, at least, the next month. Any enquiries or queries can be directed to Judy Scott on 48422135. You can also simply turn up.
The cost per participant is $10 with the Golf Club subsidising all new players and cash strapped existing players. This is an opportunity not to be missed so if you cannot make it today but have thought about taking up golf or improving your game, please put the next few Wednesday mornings in your diary. Individual lessons can be arranged with Damian.
Donna Kuhn won the Judy Bevege trophy from Shirley Shoemark on a countback last Saturday. Jackie Clark was the NTP. Donna also won the Wednesday competition. Helen Goddard won the Barbara Stuart trophy the previous Saturday from Jackie Clark.
Michael Tillman-Ryan won his event on February 9 from Murray Smith. The balls went to Mike Fitzgerald, Rod Coady, Gordon Scott and Ted Emmett. Mike, for the second time in recent months, won the jackpot with a shot to 10cms on the 17th.
Last Saturday’s 2BBB was won by Mark Newman and Barry Toombs from Barry Ivanov and Keith Morgan. The Bare Elbow’s 44 points certainly helped his cause and when needed Barry played some great shots also. Will Richards was the NTP with the platypus, Keith Ferguson and Steve Cansell.
This Saturday there will be a medley stableford followed by a BYO BBQ. This is an opportunity for a social get together and a farewell to Ted and Mary Emmett.
There has been a significant change to the men’s program this year. The club championships will be held on the first two weekends of May. To qualify members will need to play three club rounds so if you haven’t played much since the last championships please get your clubs into gear and play the three rounds before May! The ladies championships will be held in October as per usual.
The Senior Masters pennants team began their 2013 season with a six nil drubbing of Murrumbidgee Golf Club. This week the team travels to Gold Creek where all will be hoping for a coolish day as the course is very long. Good luck to the team. The following week the team plays Gungahlin at Braidwood and as hospitality is one of our calling cards we may need volunteers to help out on the day.
The program booklet is in preparation with its release dependent on how quickly Frank Williams can overcome the resurgence of his eye problems. All the very best Frank!
