A Man's Best Friend
Gus Gunsser, is a regular player in the Golden Oldies, along with his companion dog Jesse, a beautiful, obedient, border collie, who has become a close friend of all the Golden Oldies and done a lot to help Gus in his ongoing recovery from a stroke.
Gus has now decided to return to competition and has been granted special permission to have Jesse accompany him, during play. Don't worry, she won't be helping Gus sink any long putts, or used to sniff out any lost balls
Your understanding would be much appreciated and Jesse would appreciate a pat too if you see her.
Lost and Found
One of our members lost a silver Scotty Cameron putter cover last Saturday. He was told by another player that they found it and left it at the 8th tee box, but when he went back it was gone.
If you happened to pick it up, can you please hand it in at the Pro-Shop.
It probably serves as a reminder to us all, anything found out on the course should be returned to the pro-shop or put in the lost property box in the Club House Foyer. The pro-shop is probably the best option, in case the item belongs to a green fee player.
Reminder about Club's Heat Policy
For player safety, all competition will be
cancelled on days where the temperature is forecast to be 37 degrees or more.
The decision will be based on the Channel 7 evening News forecast for
Geelong, and will be final even if there is a subsequent change in the
I'll endeavour to place notification on the web site in the event of
any cancellation. However, if you are in any doubt please call the
office first thing in the morning.
Thanks for your understanding.

Special Australia Day Golf Day - Thu 26/1
If you'd like to have a hit out on Australia Day, make sure you get in early and put your name down on the Time Sheet in the Club House foyer. It is rapidly filling up with a few extra lines having had to be added.
Last year's event was a great success and this year's promises to be equally as enjoyable. It's a perfect opportunity to meet and catch up with other members.
Golf will be Stableford over 9 holes, with some tasty BBQ tucker afterwards. You'll also have a chance to buy a raffle ticket or two and could pick yourself up a nice little prize to take home.
Cost - $15 for golf and lunch or $10 lunch only
