A few photos from the last 2 days.


23 participants in the Ladies Committees Golf Initiative. A great role up and first day.

They cant wait for next weeks lesson. You may see them on the course as many took up a special 1 month offer to practice their new skills.

Thanks Jim Butt.

Ready for anything. Greenstaff completing First Aid Course. The 7 hour course was intense. Their CPR skills were great on the Dummies. If bitten by a snake they know how to immobilise the Venom.

Do you have trophy or ball accounts with positive balances?

If so, it would be greatly appreciated if you would consider using those balances as soon as possible to help reduce the funds held in trust so as to help balance the books.

It is highly recommended that the first place you should consider using your ball credits is in your golf shop where there are currently specials for the purchase of club logo golf shirts. Balls credits can be redeemed for $2.50 each and can be used for any purchase in your shop, whether its apparel, cart hire or food purchases.

There is a list in the programme book for your consideration, including the club golf shop, on other places you can spend your club prize vouchers if you do not wish to save them up to part-pay your yearly membership. Remember it is planned in late September to clear the balances of accounts that have not been used for 18 months or more. Check yours now to make sure you get credit for what you have won.

A few members have already donated their ball credits to the club, so this is an option you can utilize as well if you so wish.

Saturday Junior Competition

September 16 sees the opening day for any junior wishing to begin the process of achieving a club handicap and learning about golf competitions and how they are played.

A nine-hole competition will be held starting from about 1 pm.

A booking sheet will be available in the week prior to this so that you can book your tee time.

Come along and enjoy the company of your fellow Jamberoo junior members.

Golf Clinics

Want to learn to play golf?

Jamberoo Golf Club is holding three golf clinics on Tuesday 29th August, 5th and 12th of September for a very reasonable $60 (including afternoon tea).

Each lesson goes for about 90 minutes and golf clubs, etc., will be supplied for those who are not in possession of such.

Each lesson starts about 12 noon.

This Week’s Results

Another beautiful week on the course with the August winds at last relenting. Congratulations go to Arthur Bosanquet and Elizabeth Armstrong for their win in the Mixed Foursomes Championship.

They did not have it all their own way as 2 other groups also compiled a score of 129 over the 27 holes. The unlucky countback losers were Tony Panecasio and Shirley Walsh and also Bruce Byers and Kay Brennan.

In future years we will adjust the playing conditions for this important club event so that a play-off will be necessary if ties occur again. Shirley and Tony were the nett winners on the day and received the same-valued prize voucher as the gross champions. We hope that this will encourage more teams to enter the event next year.

No wind on Saturday, combined with good greens saw many great scores returned. None better than Ron Hewson’s 46 points. Ian Bradburn, Don Roberts, Bruce Hammond and Jeff O’Brien also were winners on the day.

2017 Mixed Foursomes Championship

Proud champions Elizabeth Armstrong and Arthur Bosanquet hold the trophy

A small field of 14 golfers gathered at the course today to play the Mixed Foursomes Championship.

What the field lacked in numbers it certainly made up for in quality.

Before the round it was difficult to select the winners with all groups in with a good chance. McGlinchey/Rippon were the low markers, Farrant/Paris the defending champions, Brennan/Byers past winners, Armstrong/Bosanquet always among the leaders, Walsh/Panecasio both in form, the Van Woerkoms an experienced team, and Gregson/Fredericks the long shots but with a good combination.

Apparently some wag phoned Shirley in the morning making sure that she and Tony were aware of the format for the day! No repeat of the Canadian this time!!

As the day progressed it became apparent that this was to be a special event with scoring very close.

In a very tight contest three teams finished the 27 holes with a score of 129. Using the Australian Countback System to separate the teams, the winners were Elizabeth Armstrong and Arthur Bosanquet (last nine 41), second place, Shirley Walsh and Tony Panecasio (last nine 43, last six 29, and last three 16), third place, Kay Brennan and Bruce Byers (last nine 43, last six 29, last three 17).

Marie Farrant and Pat Paris played very well in defence of their title but stumbled over the last few holes to narrowly miss the countback. Linda McGlinchey and Steve Rippon played well in patches but a poor start saw them playing ‘catch-up’ all day.

April and Colin Van Woerkom tried hard but did not fire, while Robyn Gregson and Lance Fredericks also played well and were very close to winning the nett title.

Shirley Walsh and Tony Panecasio


With Liz and Arthur winning the gross championship, the nett winners were Shirley and Tony with an excellent nett score of 105. Each of these teams received club vouchers of the same value and we hope that this will encourage more teams to enter next year.

Balls went to Kay and Bruce and to Marie and Pat. Nett 109.75 or better was needed in the ball comp.

All competitors enjoyed this important club day and were pleased to share a pleasant day with their fellow club members and friends.

Congratulations to our winners Liz and Arthur, Shirley and Tony.

Keno Playoff

Jamberoo pair Ian Unsworth and Geoff Reynolds were very close to winning the district playoff for the Keno Fourball only losing by 1 point from the winners from the Wollongong Golf Club. The difference was on the 18th green. Bad luck, so close to winning the all-expenses paid weekend at the Bonville Golf Resort representing the Illawarra. Better luck next year.

Annual General Meeting

A reminder that the Annual General Meeting of the Jamberoo Golf Club Ltd will be held this Wednesday night at 7 pm at the club. At this time the annual report will be presented to members with the club’s auditor in attendance to answer any questions. As the number of nominations for directorship of the new Board of Directors does not exceed the number of positions available no election has been necessary. The new Board of Directors will be announced at the AGM.

Mixed Foursomes Championships

The Mixed Foursomes will be played tomorrow over 27 holes. Prizes for both gross and nett winners will be awarded at the conclusion of the event. Good luck and play well. I hope the westerly wind abates for the day!

This Week’s Results

The wind has been howling and I am afraid to say that several members are feeling the pressure of playing in the wind as there has been many last minute cancelations. Others are enjoying the challenge and some very impressive scores have been returned with Gordon Dill scoring a massive 44 points today and Tony McRae scoring 41. You see, it is not impossible to play well in the wind.
