As the rain has resumed,  the restriction on "Ride On's" and carts has been re-applied. 
No "Ride-On's" or carts until further notice.

Thanks everyone for your understanding and co-operation.

Robert McFarlane - General Manager

You may recall if you attended the 2015 AGM that we were to update our Club’s rules to the modern standards due in part to a constitutional change that was passed unanimously back in 2015. We sought opinion and followed advice received by the Department of Justice as to what we were required to complete in order to merge the rules under which we have operated under and the model rules for incorporated associations.

 You are hereby invited to attend a Special Meeting to be held at the clubhouse on: 

SUNDAY 21st August at 10:30am. 

The purpose is for you to vote on the acceptance of the document and thereby ratify our new constitution.


The attached document is our draft constitution for you to please review in order for us to vote to adopt this, as our club constitution.

To enable us to continue to build on our successful Junior Golf Programs we are looking for 2 people to assist as coaches of our MyGolf Program in Term 4 2016 & Term 1 2017.

Interested people would be required to complete the online Community Coaching Course which would be paid for by the club. There is no handicap requirement for people to become a coach. 

Anyone interested in helping out or requiring more information, please contact Chris Crabbe on 0422 005 320.

computer image.jpgClub Web Site is a great way to find out the latest news on things going on around the club as well as checking out match results which are usually available on the site the same day or early next.

Can you please let your golfing buddies know about it and how to log on. The more we get using the site the better. If you have any "newsy" items you'd like to submit we'd love to hear from you. Simply email details through to '"  

As it's hard to catch up with everyone, if you haven't had your photo taken, it would be great if you can email one, so that it can be included with results,  

 Repairing Pitch Marks 

Pitch mark.jpgHow lucky are we to have such excellent greens. We owe it to Colin and his staff as well as fellow members to do our best to look after them. Repairing pitch marks is one way we can assist in this regard. The marks can cause the grass in the depression to die, leaving not just a scar but also a pit in the putting surface. Done properly and promptly the mark will normally heal within 24 hours- otherwise it could cause more damage and take 3 or more weeks for the grass to recover. So let's always fix our pitch marks and, if time allows, any others we notice on the green, Don't forget too to  fill any divots on and off the fairway.

Plug Mark_2.jpg

Never insert the prongs into the depression itself, but at the rim of the depression. Pushing the bottom of the depression upwards only tears the roots and kills the grass.

It would be appreciated if everyone could be mindful of the need to keep up a good pace around the course to mimimise hold ups for groups behind. 

This is especially important given our ever increasing number of players
