Bruce Hill Hole in One.jpgHilly cracks the jackpot

Congratulations to Bruce Hill, who scored his first hole in one (on the 10th) today.  It was 30 years in the making which made it all the sweeter, and from all accounts it was never in doubt after it left his trusty 5 wood, going as straight as an arrow towards the pin and rolling up the green and into the hole.

Well done Bruce!!

Ken Carter Handicapper/ Robert McFarlane General Manager


Candidates are now vying for a position on Greater City of Geelong Council. Many of us are unsure who will best represent us given the claims that have been made by candidates.
One candidate, Mr Bruce Harwood, candidate for Kardinia Ward, has been a long supporter of the club.
Our Secretary, Mr John Davie,  and has built a strong working relationship with Mr Harwood over a 10 year period. This has resulted in grants of $200,000 being awarded to the club for projects including the new Pro-shop.
Mr Harwood has promised continued support for the club with an ongoing project to upgrade the Clubrooms over the next four years. 
The General Committee with this in mind have passed a motion to inform members of this fact. The motion reads:
It was interesting to note that Mr Bruce Harwood , candidate for Kardinia Ward in his flyer has listed one of his priorities as-BARWON VALLEY GOLF CLUB SOCIAL CLUB UPGRADE- an ongoing project for over 4 years that is in need for the growth of the club. Bruce has been a great supporter of the Club in the past and wishes to continue”.

A Beechey Hole n one (2).jpgSome dreams do come true!!

Andrew Beechey, after 10 years of trying, but never really expecting to get a hole in one, finally had his dreams come true on the 5th today, when he scored his first "ace".

Neither he nor his partners saw it go in the hole and, despite it looking good in the air, thought it must have rolled on over the back when it couldn't be seen on the green.

Sheer delight though, and plenty of high fives, when the ball was discovered in the cup.   

Ross Notches up No.9. There's no stopping him !!

Ross mcFarlane vets_2.jpgRoss McFarlane and Richard Olsen travelled to Bairnsdale earlier this week (1st week in October) to compete in the Victorian Veteran Golfers Association State Champonship.

Both did themselves proud. Ross won an incredible 9th Championship, this year's win being his 8th in succession. What a fantastic effort - he seems to be getting better with age and sure to be at even shorter odds next year.
