BLOB 10th Feb 2017

Morning everyone,

Unbelievable  – Frost up here at 6.30 this morning.

The course is open for 18 holes as normal, carts can be used top and bottom.

Clubrooms closed this Saturday and Sunday due to a bereavement.

Good Luck to all our Interclub Teams on Saturday and Monday.

Big thank you to the Green-keepers who have been very busy this week cleaning up the course – you are AWESOME!!!!

You would of all noticed by now that the 1st of the groynes in #1 have been completed.  We are now waiting for top soil to tidy up the track that was left by the trucks.  This is not  quick fix, it is a mammoth task for the green-keepers.

Is there any volunteers to paint the out of bounds and hazard pegs????? we have the paint and brushes.

I am disappointed that we have only got 1 Interclub report from Division 10 (thanks Andrew). 2nd round they played at Judgeford and lost 9 -6, not bad for an away game, Individuals wins were by Jamie Ryland, Mick Dearmer, Dave Anderson and Bruce Hay.

Teams Twilight started last night, we have 6 teams, if any members are keen for  nine holes on a Thursday night, prizes and a meal for $12.00,  one team will be short with players away overseas for two weeks – anyone keen to fill in????

Roaring Forties had its last draw last Saturday and winners were  ME $200 (FINALLY) Kim Cottrell $100, Chris Brooks $100. Thanks to everyone that participated in this fundraiser.   The money raised will be going towards  – removing and resituating of the flag poles, new club flags, (decent ones) replacing broken trellis outside shop, shading for upstairs balcony and the clean and sweep of the drive way which was done before Christmas.

I hear that Nigel Messenger got another hole in one on the 11th at Napier Golf Club, he even made it into the February Pacific Golfer Magazine, it is Nigel’s 4th hole in one. – Congratulations!

Competitions for last Sunday were all done manually due to the fact some members played the top nine twice for the 18, then when the bottom nine was opened up later in the morning some played top and bottom.  I had to delete all members that paid for the Cossie Club Shootout, this competition couldn’t be calculated on the Sunday with the option of doing top nine twice or playing the full course 18.  I have a list of everyone that paid the $1.00 so this weekend those members can enter the shootout but won’t be charged for it.  At the moment we are looking into officially having in our system playing 9 holes twice to be calculated for competitions, if 9 holes on the course is unplayable for the future.
