Tree trouble on 18
Brian U thought he was a trifle unlucky when his ball clipped the top branch of a gum tree on the left of the 18th fairway.
Expecting the ball to be further down the fairway he was surprised, to say the least, at the final resting place of his ball.
His playing partners saw the humour although Brian was not amused!
Pennant Season Commences
On behalf of the members of Jamberoo Golf Club I would like to take this opportunity to wish all 4 of our Men’s Pennant teams the best of luck in round 1 which commences on Sunday.
B and C Pennants are at the Grange and both White Horse Cup teams are playing at Bowral.
Go the Roo!
What does a Board member actually do?
In a new series of articles the roles of various positions at the club will be highlighted.
Role of the Club Captain
As Captain among my duties is to oversee the running of the competitions at our club. This includes the checking of competition cards and plans for the awarding of prizes and balls.
I organise the Men’s Club Matchplay tournament and run our Jamberoo Open Days. The organisation of the Mens’ Pennant teams comes under my purview as does the selection of teams (which is completed in consultation with the team captains and selectors)
I also prepare the schedule of events and answer any questions concerning the rules of golf and player handicaps.
In consultation with the Match Committee I have the duty to formulate all local rules that are played. I am your contact person with Golf NSW and with Golf Illawarra.
I do not have any authority over the green-staff except in advising them on pin and tee positions and the marking of GUR on the course. I have little input into course maintenance issues but will give suggestions if I see that it is warranted.
Please feel free to talk to me if you have any issues and I will promise to listen to all comments and act on them if possible and to take them to the Board if it is appropriate.
