VOLUNTEERS MAKE OUR CLUB

A HUGE THANK YOU to our Queen Beth & King Barry of the Golf Course who do so much work on the course we are forever indebted to you both. 

Beth is always raking up leaves, bark and honky nuts or she is cleaning the portable toilets and keeping them stocked. Seen often working in the kitchen at the Club, being Captain for golf, keeping the charts up to date and much, much more!!

Barry is always seen on a tractor, 4 wheel bike or ute doing something on the golf course- watering and building tees, shifting branches & trees that have fallen victim to the wind, checking on greens and fairways that need any work, the list is never ending!! 

Barry holds casual meetings and a lot of coffee and bikkies are consumed in the shed!! Not sure what goes on there???

You are both a wonderful asset to the Club and we do appreciate the massive amount of time you both give-

THANK YOU!!

The weather over the last week has provided some challenging conditions for players, however the more enthusiastic managed to participate on several days last week.  Saturday was a little more daunting with the inclement weather ensuring a washout by early afternoon.  A welcome respite for our plants and those charged with watering them!  Roll on some more sunshine.
