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.
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.
