Driving Range Balls
Please note that only Driving Range balls are allowed to be
hit on the range. You must not hit ordinary balls.
This has been introduced by the Committee on a trial basis
following several near misses on the first fairway, especially around the
corner, as big hitters cleared the top of the fence.
It is hoped that the range balls, with their lower compression, will overcome this problem and obviate the need to further extend the fence

The winners of the first Raffle, drawn on Sat 18/3, were:
David Foster - Meat Tray
Geoffrey Kennedy - Slab of beer
Tickets for the next raffle will be available at the bar in the Club House tomorrow (21/3) for $2 a pop. As soon as 100 tickets are sold there will be another draw, and a new raffle commenced.
This will be an ongoing fund raising initiative, so please lend your support, and who knows, you could be one of the next luck winners!!
** 11th Fairway - Change to Local Rules **
As of 18/3, the compulsory tee up on the 11th is restricted to balls inside the blue dotted lines along each side of the fairway.
Any ball outside of these lines is to be played in the normal manner ie without a tee up.
Further changes to Local Rules generally, including relief on bare patches, are to become effective from 1 April. Please keep your eye on the Boards to make sure you don't miss them.
Pennant Results 19/2:
Division 1 - Bye
Division 3 - halved their match against Ocean Grove at Portarlington 31/2 - 31/2
The snake between the 5th green and 6th tee has been spotted by many players. It comes out to warm up in the sun between groups. Although the snake tends to keep to itself, it could be a problem if someone stirs it up.
We have had the snake catcher out a number of times, but he has had no luck in catching it and the council will not remove the tree while there is a snake in residence.

cancelled on days where the temperature is forecast to be 37 degrees or more.
