Morning everyone, really nice and cool up here at the moment.
We have Eagles Golfing Society Raffle Tickets for sale for $2.00, there are lot of awesome prizes, they are on the main office desk please put your money into the box beside the tickets so we do not get them mixed up with the Club $2.00 raffle, these are normally sold on Halberg Day which is on Sunday the 8th April – please support this raffle as the money raised goes toward promoting and fostering Junior Golf in NZ.
It was great to hear the Mid-Week Ladies Pennants team beat Karori at Waikanae on Monday 5 ½ – 3 ½ – Awesome result Ladies.
Good Luck for your game on Monday Ladies playing at Royal Wellington against Martinborough – another win will be awesome!!!!
Practice on the course:
Hitting multiple balls from the fairway to a green #1 to #18, is prohibited, that sort of practice should be made on the practice areas provided only.
We provide the practice areas for your benefit – as this sustained practice in one area is causing undue damage to the course.
