Course Works in Progress
Thanks to the heavy machinery of Mike Brown, brought all the way from his farm in Wickepin , together with Barry Jackson on the Club tractor , a number of large dead trees , limbs and stumps have been removed and stacked ready for burning at the first available opportunity.
Further renovation work on several greens is to be followed up.
Notification of this work will be advised.
We are also working on submitting a proposed Three Year Plan for Golf so that we may be able to attract some outside grant money to enable improvements to be carried out.
Photos illustrate some of the current work around the course :
…is the name of a popular song, and it sets the theme for the following pictures which show some activities over recent weeks outside the five Sports of Bowls, Golf, Croquet, Tennis and Cycling, which continue to go from strength to strength with their set fixtures and programmes of events.
Some comments from time to time say that,” not many people know about our Dunsborough and Districts Country Club” BUT since October this year:
5,000 plus people have visited and participated in events and activities:
3,000 were associated with the Cape to Cape Cycle Event which finished at the Club This included Competitors, Spectators and Volunteers
160 Corporate Bowlers participate weekly in the current event series
Up to 100 people regularly attend Friday Night Dinners
Up to 20 Juniors plus parent supporters enjoy Golf and Bowls
Then there are the groups that participate in Mah Jong, Probus, Lions, Bridge
A great Melbourne Cup Day Out and Luncheon at the Club
The Drifters in Concert drew another happy and in-the-mood audience
So what a difference a week or a month makes at the DDCC.
5,000 people can’t be wrong!!
Keep up the good work You All!
