The BLOB

Afternoon everyone,

Fine up here today, slight breeze.

So looking forward to the cricket tonight!!!

If any members have new phone numbers and not notified us since the 2014 programme book please do so, the programme book is at its final stages of being put together to be sent to the printers, just e-mail me your new number.

The green-keepers need a new a trailer, so if anyone can acquire one for us that would be awesome.

Twilight Golf starts on Thursday 28th January, if members are wanting to put together a team of 4 for $25.00 per person, let me know.  Teams Twilight is played for 6 weeks, shotgun start at 5.45pm, 9 holes, it is a very social and enjoyable evening of golf, where you finish off the game with a meal ($12.00) and prize giving. Please let me know if you are interested.

It is has been noticed around the course, that some members, are not adhering to the Standard of Dress Policy, outside Club Day dress code is clean and tidy appearance this does not mean sleeveless shirts, Jandels, work boots, or topless (not the ladies).  Club Day you all know the Dress Code is a neater appearance.  I would personally say 95% are well dressed, just with the warm weather and summer evenings some members are probably not aware they have upset anyone with their standard of dress.  I of course will make sure any group bookings and visitors are aware of our dress code.

On Monday 25th January  at Te Marua Golf Course Katy and Nima have organised the Charity Ambrose Golf Match for the Cheboche Area Trust, fundraising to assist a Green-house build.

This is a 9 hole Ambrose which is suitable for experience and non-experience golfers, registration at 3.30pm, shotgun start at 4.00pm, entry fee $25.00.  A barbeque will follow at 617 Main Road North, Te Marua.  Please ring Katy or Nima on 5266997 if wanting to register.

Opening Day is on Sunday 31st January, we have the James Mayer Trays Competition, which is 4 Ball Best Ball Stableford, choose a partner and write their name on your card, $2.50 per person.

On Wednesday 3rd February the course will be closed till late afternoon, we are hosting the Senior Men for the day.

When you come into the office don’t be afraid to ask for your Subscription Notice we have them already for pick-up, there will be an attachment letter with every invoice explaining the new fee structure.

Fees are to be paid by the 29th February, if you have any change of status please let us know as soon as possible so our records can be altered, for printing of membership cards.

Charlie West who is  WGI’s Golf Operations Officer has resigned, he will finish with WGI on the 19th February, WGI plan to have interim cover for his role in place shortly.

Dot golf have been notified of the recurring booking cancellation issue, this should be fixed shortly.

For the 9 hole golfers that could not print cards for 9 holes only, I have fixed the problem.

Please take note that I have opened up start sheets from Monday to Sunday so every member can book on line, and visitors can check to see what is available, we will be trialing this for a month, if a start sheet is not opened it is because the course is closed for a tournament for the day like Senior Men, Women Vets etc.
