News From the Course 10th December


Ham Collection

For those lucky enough to win a Ham, 1/2 Ham or Turkey in the last couple of weeks then you must be at the club on Monday 12th of December at 2.30 pm to pick them up. We don’t have any storage facilities at the club so please be present to collect your prize.

Congratulations to all the lucky winners (said through gritted teeth)!

14th/15th holes

Thanks for the feedback, both in replies to an earlier article and at the course today. Sometimes we can rush into something without thoroughly thinking it through and it is good for us to know your opinions. It is obviously clear that the vast majority of members disagree with the proposal and that some better solution is required in this case.

It is therefore now time for members to make some suggestions for us to consider. Please respond in the comments below. All ideas will be considered.

Postponement of ‘New out of Bounds’


Player and visitor safety is a very important concern at Jamberoo Golf Club. Sometimes the need to consider safety takes precedence over golfing matters.

The 15th tee is an area where there is a potential for players to be hit by errant shots from the 14th tee. You may note the safety screens put in already and the etiquette of calling ‘fore’ if you send your ball off line on the 14th tee. Players have also been advised to stand close to the screen while awaiting their turn on the 15th tee. A tree planting in the area is being implemented but this of course will take time to fully protect the tee. The cost of erecting netting screens is also prohibitive but has also been considered.

Despite all of the above greenstaff and players are still in danger and have recently had near misses in this area.

The implementation of the “new out of bounds” will be postponed until later so that more feedback can be gained.

The greens committee would like you now to continue your feedback and make positive suggestions to improve safety in this area.

New area of Out of Bounds on the 14th hole


New ‘Out of Bounds’ Area while playing the 14th Hole

There has been a spate of players and greens staff being hit or having a near miss by golf balls hit off the 14th tee onto or in front of the 15th tee. One person indeed was taken to hospital following a strike to the back of his head by an errant ball while he was addressing his ball.

It is the policy of Jamberoo Golf Club that players call out ‘FORE’ if they hit their tee shot off line on any hole. Players on the 15th tee should wait near the screen while waiting their turn to hit for safety’s sake.

All of these situations come despite the screen and trees near the 15th tee and despite all of the safety measures. Players near the 15th tee are still being put in danger by players from the 14th tee aiming over the 15th tee.

It is therefore that the Green’s Committee have proposed an out of bounds extension be made while playing the 14th hole. It is to include the 15th tee and an area of 50m by 25m of the 15th fairway and rough immediately in front of the 15th tee. This new ‘Out of Bounds’ will only apply to the 14th hole and not for any other hole. [The Green’s Committee have applied Decision 33 – 24/14 of the rules of golf].
This proposal will be trialed until March 2017 at which time its success or otherwise will be reviewed.

The new ‘Out of Bounds’ will be in play from Wednesday 14th of December.


Please use the suggestion book or tell a Board of Director member to record any near misses or hits to players in this area.

Presentation night

A final reminder that the 4th of December is presentation night. Bar services will be available. Please bring some change to further enjoy the events on the night.

Quarterly and Half Yearly Fees

Those members who have taken the option to pay their membership fees half yearly or quarterly are reminded that these were due on the 30th of November. If you have failed to pay on time then you are now unfinancial. You are not given a month long extension to make this payment.

It would be appreciated that you make arrangements to pay as soon as possible. For those members who remembered the club sends its thanks.

Some monthly payment members are also now in arrears and should also make a payment as soon as possible.

Weekly Results

Fine weather has certainly brought out the best in our members with large fields and great scoring evident. Looking at the winners from last week there appears to be a pattern with some regular names showing winning form. It remains to be seen if they have ‘fired their cannons to early’ with the plethora of hams up for grabs in the next couple of weeks.
