Hello Members, Sponsors & Patrons
The first weekend with the kitchen open for tapas went very well with Saturday being the busier of the two days. The tennis players took full advantage and ordered up and all enjoyed their dishes. Come along this weekend between 4.00pm & 7.00pm and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.
Starting Friday a twilight bowls competition will run from 6pm – 7.15pm at a cost of $5. Everyone is invited to attend what will be a fun and enjoyable evening. The kitchen will still be open and meals will be available.
Please arrive at about 5pm for a quick lesson, and then play until 6.15pm, finishing in time for the Friday Night meal. Cost will be $3 for members and $5 for DDCC social members and non-members. The golf croquet players will still be on the court when you arrive, so don’t think we have started without you.

Course Record Set By Jim Parry
At Wednesday Scroungers on 25 November, 2015, Club Member, Jim Parry, set a Course Record for our 18 Hole Stableford Event . Playing off a Handicap of 32 , Jim shot a Round of 86 strokes giving him a Score of 54 Stableford Points. His game was steady and consistent throughout and Jim was duly congratulated on his triumph especially since coming back from a mild medical hiccup.
Runner up on the day also with a very good score of 41 was Terry Sanbrook.
