Morning Members,

AGM MONDAY AT 8 O’CLOCK in the Clubrooms.

Golfer of the Year is on Sunday, you have all been registered. There is a list of members that made the cut and out – line of Competition on the white board in foyer. Good Luck to you all!!!

The Club would like to express their Deepest Sympathies to Club Member Pat Sinding, on the loss of her husband Gunner who pass away last week. I know that Gunner was a member here many years ago, our thoughts are with you and your family.

The Weekend Shootout Winner was Peter Gallen, Runner -up Aaron Wynyard. The weather was perfect so made the 7 hours of playing time a enjoyable day, sadly some players were disappointed with their form on the day but that is GOLF. Peter Gallen took the title after an 18th chip off to resolve the tie with Aaron Wynyard – both players scored 4 on the 18th hole, but a cool head and experience prevailed with Peter winning. Peter had an awesome round best ever score of 73, but the next day he shot 95 so goes to show golf always wins the end of the day. The 2018 shootout winner Wayne Turner was knocked out (drum roll) first hole, so was stopped short in his attempt to win back to back. – Congratulations to you all that made the cut!!!! And for those that didn’t there’s always next year.

Weekend Women’s Shootout is on today( Saturday)teeing off #10 at 10.30.

Have your registered for the Masters???
