A Little History
As you probably know, Pat Boone was the celebrity who promoted the development of Ocean Shores. There’s a great photo of him in a brochure in the Club’s heritage display. Sadly, his wife Shirley died last week – there’s a story here.
McLeod January events – details here.
3 Putt Club.
A successful lunch yesterday – the amount of food and drink suggests we’ve had far too many 3 putts! It will start again on Tuesday 12th Feb – Marg Byron will have the list and be ready to take your money.
Are you ready for the new rules starting 1st Jan?
New rule books are in the Pro Shop, and there’s plenty of on-line help available.
There’s an app for your phone – get the iPhone app here, and the Android app here.
The 20 “must know” rules are here.
There are 25 short videos (mostly less than 1 minute) here.
And there’s a quiz or two here, so you can test your knowledge.
2019 Season Opening – 29th Jan
The sheet for names is now in the locker room. PLEASE NOTE: It will not be a draw, but your team must have someone from each grade, as shown on the sheet. You may choose your own team, or just put your name in the appropriate column, and see who you attract.
No presentation or raffle on Tuesdays, from now until the start of the new season on 29th Jan. And Tuesday score cards go through the slot, after saving to the computer.
The blog will rest for a week or two, and return in the new year.
🎄🎄Merry Christmas 🎄🎄
Thank you to the committee and everyone else who helped make the day a success. Some photos are here. If you’d like to add any of your own photos to the club’s album, please send them to Pat.

Chris Graham interview.
Chris was recently interviewed by Inside Golf Magazine, for their regular podcast. You can listen here. The whole 35 minutes is quite interesting, but if you’re short of time, Chris’s segment starts approx 18 minutes from the beginning, and runs for approx 9 min.
