Morning everyone, lovely up here today.
AGM – only one month away, mark this date down on your calendar –Monday 5th December – 8.00pm.
Winner of the $50.00 was Michael Baines and Rex Peebles.
Roaring Forties draw this Saturday, $400.00 up for grabs – who is going to win????
Some of the recently joined members membership cards are in shop/office – please pick them up this weekend.
The Women’s Open Day on Monday 7th November has now been cancelled due to lack of entries, I think we only had about 20 from outside clubs and 5 from Te Marua – pretty sad response isn’t it?
On Monday night a member was practising on the chipping green, he/she left 73 deep pitch marks on the green. This is unacceptable, our greenkeepers spend a lot of hours making sure our course is in tip top condition for members and visitors, it is a shame that a member has shown little respect for the hard work they do and our course. Dave Sully was not a happy man!!
Daylight Saving and Spring are here and summer is on its way which means more golfing hours available to us all.
And it’s also the time for a reminder……
If you take the opportunity to play a few ‘practice’ holes during the quiet times, which your membership entitles you to do, you are bound by that same membership, and Golf Etiquette, to take the time to repair ball marks / pitch marks on the greens and any divots you take around the course.
Please have a look at this article about repairing ball marks on the greens : http://www.predatorridge.com/blog/golf-conditions-and-course-maintenance/how-properly-repair-divot-mark/ .
For divots on the course, please replace whatever turf is retrievable and stamp it down firmly so that it will remain in place when the fairway mower next goes over it. Where no turf is available to replace, use a club to level out the edges of the divot and make that piece of ground as flat as possible. After all, who likes playing out of a divot ?
A quote from The Golf Fix man : “Remember – if you want the golf course to take care of you, you have to take care of the golf course !”
