New Arrangements in the Golf Shop

In consideration of the safety of our patrons and staff in this co-vid 19 time we have been operating from a window in the starters area. The club wishes to thank all of our members for their understanding and patience.

With the loosening of health regulations we are now allowed to re-open our shop to customers.

You will notice several bollards, chains and markings to direct you into and out of the shop while keeping the 1.5 metre social distance. A maximum of 5 customers can be accommodated at any one time. Please stand on the positions marked while you await your turn at the counter.

The counter has also been re-fitted with screens to minimise the risk of any transfer of germs.

The club owes a debt of gratitude to Rod Hodkinson for his tireless work in preparing the shop for its re-opening.

To celebrate we are allowing a discount of $10 off the marked price of any shirt or top for the next week.

Bar Service

Please note that if the’ Bar Open’ sign is turned on then drinks must be purchased from the club.

The bar will be open this Saturday from 10 am.

2020 Membership

The membership financial year has passed and all members who have failed to pay their subscription by May 31 are now unfinancial. Please attend to this as soon as possible.

Payments can be made at the Club Office, with the starters, or on-line through B-Pay. Please refer to your invoice for instructions.

The Office will be Open for payments 10 am to 2 pm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and from 9 am on Saturdays.

Please present your new membership card to the starter before you play any social round. Don’t forget to sign in.

Golfing Matters

  1. Balls straying off-line – for safety’s sake if you hit a ball off line then it is a requirement to call ‘fore’. This is especially the case on the 13th where there have been several near misses from shots played landing near the 14th. Stay safe!
  2. Repair your divot marks – Use your sand bucket and fill in your divot marks. In fact fill in any that you see on the fairway or in the rough.
  3. Pitch marks on greens – Last Saturday I personally repaired 17 divot holes on the 17th hole. If you want good greens then you have to help out. Repair your own and two others!
  4. Mud-splattered balls – With the soft fairways, if your ball is encrusted in mud then you may mark, lift, clean and exactly replace your ball if you are on the general area of the course.

An Ode to Golf

In My Hand I Hold A Ball,
White And Dimpled, Rather Small.
Oh, How Bland It Does Appear,
This Harmless Looking Little Sphere.

By Its Size I Could Not Guess,
The Awesome Strength It Does Possess.
But Since I Fell Beneath Its Spell,
I’ve Wandered Through The Fires Of Hell.

My Life Has Not Been Quite The Same,
Since I Chose To Play This Stupid Game.
It Rules My Mind For Hours On End,
A Fortune It Has Made Me Spend.

It Has Made Me Yell, Curse And Cry,
I loathe it, And Want To Die.
It Promises A Thing Called Par,
If I Can Hit It Straight And Far.

To Master Such A Tiny Ball,
Should Not Be Very Hard At All.
But My Desires The Ball Refuses,
And Does Exactly As It Chooses.

It Hooks And Slices, Dribbles And Dies,
And Even Disappears Before My Eyes.
Often It Will Have A Whim,
To Hit A Tree Or Take A Swim.

With Miles Of Grass On Which To Land,
It Finds A Tiny Patch Of Sand.
Then Has Me Offering Up My Soul,
If Only It Would Find The Hole.

It’s Made Me Whimper Like A Pup,
And Swear That I Will Give It Up.
And Take To Drink To Ease My Sorrow,
But The Ball Knows… I’ll Be Back Tomorrow.

Sunday Photos

Footgolf Australia Event held at the course celebrating the resumption of Footgolf at Jamberoo. With a field consisting of players from Sydney and also 2 Uni Students from Melbourne representing the Mellvora Capensis Footgolf Club in Beijing.

These two were really keen. They play at Beijing Courses and represent China in events. They were very impressed with the Footgolf course—took lots of photos to send to their mates.

All players were very good following all the distancing rules. A very different ‘socially distant’ presentation took place.

Captain vs President Charity Match

146

 

After the aggregate of the top 50 scores from each team was calculated the final result of today’s Match was: Captain’s Team 1472 points, President’s Team 1450 points.

This means that the Captain’s team retain the title and receive bragging rights.

It also means, more importantly, that the charity supported by the Captain’s team, The Junior Diabetes Research Fund, will receive a donation on behalf of the club equivalent to 50c per player.

The Captain was magnanimous in his victory speech which praised each member of his hand-picked team for their combined efforts in overcoming such a worthy opponent and was pleased to put forward the donation to the team charity. He believes that this could be the start of a lengthy domination considering the strength of his squad.

The President in his reply also thanked his team, noting that they had performed admirably with an equal number of players in the top 6 on the day and noted his own personal victory over the Captain. Next year he promises revenge and is setting up an off-season practice schedule for his squad to lift them to the next level.

 

We hope you all enjoyed the Charity Match.
