News From the Course – February 3


Membership Specials

If you have a friend or relative that would like to join then now is the time. Membership is currently pro-rated to just $200 for play up until the end of the membership financial year at the end of May.

Jamberoo remains the cheapest place to play on the coast!

Volunteers Achieving Great Things

Have you noticed the beautiful gardens around the course? These are lovingly tended to by some of our dedicated members out of the goodness of their souls. The only reward they receive is the smiles on member’s faces as they regard the handiwork of their fellows.

There are plenty of jobs to be done around the course as well, like snipping the banks of the creeks, helping laying the new ‘geohex’ pathways or just filling divots and holes on the fairways. Whatever skill you bring we can use your help.

If you have the time why not volunteer to help in this important way?

Those who are interested can leave their name and contact detail with the shop or the office.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Specials in the Golf Shop

Its that time of year again where you might start thinking of using those ball credits on your account. If you don’t want to exchange your credits for golf balls then you might consider using them to buy items in the shop? Each ball credit is valued at $2.50 so why not use them to buy that new pair of golf shoes, or that new club shirt.

Take advantage of the special in the shop in February!

Good Luck to Our Pennant Teams

All Men’s Pennant teams start their campaigns this Sunday. The B pennant are at Nowra up against Moss Vale, the C Pennant ‘Sharks’ are at home against St George’s Basin, while the Flies travel to Bowral to play  Worrigee. The Cowpats play Sussex Inlet at St George’s Basin.

Good luck to all of our teams.

Ad Victoriam!

Thanks again to Col Booth for his generous sponsorship of the pennant team caps.

Position Vacant

If you have some spare time and would like to assist the club then why not volunteer as a shop worker. All training will be supplied and an expense allowance will be paid. A few of our volunteer shop workers have had to return to the workforce and can’t spare the time to help out in the shop anymore so some positions are available.

It is a very rewarding position and you will certainly get to know the members of our club, the club employees, both in the office and on the course better and find out about how the club runs.

Please leave your name and contact details with the Office or Shop.

The Course

The greens are generally in good shape and rolling truly. With the re-introduction of Saturday morning mowing the standard of green presented to members should be quite acceptable.

The green staff are working to eradicate the couch and kikuyu that has infested some sections of a few greens. This involves a course of spraying over several weeks. Although it doesn’t look good at the moment these sections of greens still roll OK so if you need to putt across them then that should not effect their roll too much.

The major problem continues to be the damage done by the Corellas. The ‘Owls’ seem to work on the green they are located on but as soon as you move one then the birds attack again, usually after hours.

If you have any cost-effective solution then please let us know?
