Congratulations to the committee for a successful start to the golfing year.
Thank you to everyone who made the day a success, particularly Merv and Les for their cooking skills, our caterers SeaSalt for donating the salads, and Kaye King for the lovely chocolates.
Raffle winners – Lyn Harcourt and Marylou Pratt.
Feedback to the Comittee
Comments, suggestions and constructive criticism is always welcome – by email, ordinary letter, or in person.
If writing, please include your name so that the committee can seek clarification if necessary, and provide a personal response.
If you prefer to speak to someone, then please do so AFTER your game of golf, rather than before, or during the round. The committee works hard, and deserves to enjoy their round of golf.
What’s new? What’s changed?
Raffle – a change in procedure. Please buy your tickets in the Pro Shop as usual. When you come in after golf, please write your name on the tickets and place them in the basket on the table near the card box. The winning tickets will be drawn from the basket instead of using the machine.
Recycled golf clothes – there is a box in the locker room where you may deposit any good, but unwanted, golf clothing – maybe it no longer fits, or you just don’t like it any more. Anything not snapped up by someone within a week or two will be donated to an op shop.
3 Putt Club – starts on Tuesday 13th Feb. Cathy Daley will be looking after it this year, so please see her to sign up and pay your money each week.
Social lunches – following the success of the trip to Pottsville Pub, President Di is planning a few more lunches this year. The first will be on Wednesday 7th March, at our own SeaSalt Restaurant. Please see Di for more details and to put your name on the list.
Tuesday scrubbers ball – thanks to the continuing generosity of Peta & Juan Price, there will be no countbacks this year. All players with the lowest score will receive a ball.
Matchplay Brooch – starting again this week. To make it easier to find time to play, and encourage more challengers, matches may now be played on Thursdays, in conjunction with the Thursday competition. Or they can be played at any other time, by mutual agreement.
Club Representative Events
Pennant – starts in May
Casino Team Event – April
Nomination sheets are (or will soon be) on the noticeboard. Please put your names down ASAP, so the committee can select teams. If you’d like more information, please talk to Claudette or Sue.
A gentle reminder.
If someone gives you a ride in their golf cart, it’s a courtesy to thank them by offering to buy them a drink at the Halfway House. It’s just a little thing, but it’s appreciated by buggy owners, and makes them more willing to offer rides in the future.
Next Tuesday 6th Feb.
Greens renovation will be in progress, so we play the back nine twice. After golf, there will be a small plate of sandwiches for each table, with compliments from SeaSalt.
