  golf cart 3.jpgGolden Oldies

Have you ever heard of, or thought about joining, the Club's Golden Oldies??

I joined about 8 years ago and can honestly say I really  look forward to game day each Thursday.

The group, of which 30 or so rock up each week,  couldn't be more friendly, and you get to play with different guys each week, numbers being drawn at the 8.50a muster to decide who plays with who.

Most choose to play in the 18 hole competition, but there is also a 9 hole competition for those that don't feel up to 18 holes or have other commitments. The weekly entry fee for either is $2.00.

To save time, 18 holers start on the 1st and 10th tees, while 9 holers usually play the back nine.

There are some special handicapping and playing rules which are for the general benefit of all players and also help even things out.

When you join you will play off your club handicap for the first game, and depending on how you go it may be reduced next time around. If you win one of the two grades your handicap will come down by three,  second place will cost you two shots and third or fourth one shot. Thereafter, you will go back out one shot each week until you reach your club handicap again (max permissible)

Stableford is played each game, and preferred lies are allowed through the green.

After the game, is always a fun time in the Club house. Most stay for the presentations over drinks and a sandwich and you can rely on lots of fun banter, story-telling and good natured stirring.

Prizes (Golf balls) are awarded to the winners and placegetters in each grade, as well as the 9 hole competition. You can also win a ball for nearest the pins on the 3rd (2nd shot), 5th, 10th, 13th & 17th (2nd shot). If you haven't picked up some of these balls you are also in the running to win a best 9 in or out.

Twice a year we also play the RSL in a challenge game which is another great day.

If you'd like to come along one week you can count on being made most welcome.

However, to be eligible to join us, you must be a club member or prepared to pay normal green fees. You must also be over 55 and not working full time to satisfy "golden oldie" conditions.

We'd love to see some new faces join us. So if you are interested simply come to the clubhouse at about 8.15am any Thu or speak to your 'Golden Oldie" mates.  You may also contact Ivor Denison, who is the chief organizer on 5221 6733

      


                                                        

Defibrillators

AED.jpgFor those that aren't aware, the club has two Automated External 
Defibrillators (AED's) for emergency use if someone has a Sudden 
Cardiac Arrest i.e. abrupt loss of pulse and consciousness.

There is one in the Main Office which is accessible during open 
hours, and one in the Clubrooms.

The AED’s are portable, safe and easy to use - you don't need any prior training. 
Once you turn them on, you simply have to follow the step-by-step instructions provided 
via voice prompts. Written instructions are also provided with the units for reference purposes.

It would be appreciated if you can let all your playing partners know about the availability 
and location of the devices.

** Using an AED within minutes of the start of Sudden 
Cardiac Arrest may restore a normal heart rhythm. 
Every minute counts. Each minute of SCA leads to a 
10% reduction in survival.**


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 I'd love to hear from you. Simply email details through to 'bvgcnews@gmail.com"
