Hams Day

A great day to be on the course today with the added incentive for the men of playing for a ham.

This follows the Ladies Hams Day late last month and the Lady Veterans last Thursday.

The hams are being delivered to the Golf Club at 8 am on Tuesday 12th of December. As there are no cold storage facilities at the club you need to arrange their pickup at this time.

Here is a list of this year’s lucky winners

Cows invade Course

A report has reached me that last Wednesday evening some cows invaded the course from along the Minamurra River stampeding across the 12th and 13th greens. Luckily greens-man Warren Duncan was nearby and herded them from the course averting more serious damage.

Suspiciously a cowpat was found nearby!

Nearest The Pins and Super Shot

Each competition day members have a chance to win nearest the pin prizes of 2 balls and drive and pitch prizes in their grade. Your competition entry fee pays for these.

However to enter the Super Shot you must pay an additional $2 charge.

If you have not entered and signed the entry sheet in the golf shop before you commence your round you are ineligible to win the prize.

Don’t put your name down on the card near the green unless you have entered.

Pay your money and give yourself a chance. Often the prize is around the $100 mark so it is well worth winning.

Presentation Afternoon

A glorious afternoon with the sky filled with fluffy clouds and a gently cooling light breeze from the south greeted the 2017 Jamberoo Golf Club Presentation. The serene background of our beautiful course at dusk was a perfect setting for the 50 members who had gathered to celebrate the achievements of their fellows and rejoice in the camaraderie of their joint love for our club. Also there was free beer and wine and hams to be won.

It is also a day to thank our major sponsors, Kris Morrison from Drummond Golf Shellharbour and Vivienne Marris from Elders Real Estate Jamberoo for their support of our club.

The proceedings started with the 3rd annual chipping contest held near the 4th green.

I can honestly say that the standard of play was truly inspirational and a vast improvement from previous year’s contests. The Lady golfers in particular all showed some skill with the wedge!

Last year’s winner Viv Marris has clearly been taking lessons but she was outshone today by Judy O’Brien who hit her shot to 76 cm just pipping Ken Bradley who was 78 cm from the pin.

All money raised will be allocated to the Ladies and Mens Pennant teams for 2018.

After the meal was served and refreshments partaken it was down to the main reason for the day, the presentation of the major club awards and perpetual trophies where members are recognised for their grand performances throughout the year.

Ladies Gold Medalist                                Shirley Walsh


Many thought it a pleasure to see Shirley Walsh claim her gold medal and to hear her story concerning the losing and re-finding of that medal. Apparently they wash pretty well.

All trophy winners had their story to tell and all are to be congratulated.

Each year I am amazed and very pleased to witness the Jamberoo spirit where people help out without being asked not expecting any praise. This is especially true of the lady members who prepared the meal, and help set out the tables and washed up afterwards. These things don’t just happen on their own and I sincerely thank you all for your dedication to the club.

The Afternoon concluded with President Phil Hahn thanking the many volunteers and the organising committee as well as giving his personal congratulations to this year’s major award winners.

It was indeed a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
