Rules night – 6.30pm tonight (Wed 7th Nov).
The rule changes, commencing on 1st Jan next year, are described as the result of the first fundamental review  in 34 years, so it’s worth making the effort to come along tonight. If you can’t make it tonight, then the session will be repeated on Wed 28th Nov. There’s also a heap of information, including some short videos, on Golf Australia’s website – here. And there’s a rules app for your phone – download it from this link at Golf Australia.

Cox Plate
Congratulations to Heather Rowland, who won this event last Saturday with 41 pts, in a large field of 114 players. A great effort, and only the second time a lady has won the event. Anne Slater was the other winner. Thank you to Bev for the photos – a very reflective part of the clubhouse for photography, but still a nice record of the event.
