    CLUB HISTORIAN 

    At the last Management Committee meeting Rob 

    Pollard was appointed as the Club’s Historian.

    Rob has been asked to research the history of the 

    Dunsborough & Districts Country Club & create a 

    digital documentation that reflects this research.

    Very little of the Club’s history is available in a written 

    form but so much obviously resides in the minds of 

    members who have been part of the development of 

    the Club or have knowledge of such development,

    An authentic historic digital record can be successfully 

    developed with the cooperation of members who may 

    have knowledge of relevant dates, events and the 

    people involved in the evolution of the Club.

    To this end Rob is keen to speak with any members 

    who may have such knowledge & would be prepared to 

    avail themselves for an informal interview with him.

    He is happy to meet with individuals or small groups of 

    members who would feel more comfortable in a small 

    group setting.

    Small groups can provide the opportunity for members 

    to “bounce” facts, incidents, stories etc of one another 

    thus having the potential to more accurately create a 

    reliable historic record.

    Rob is very interested in hearing of any comments that 

    may have impacted on the Club’s development since it 

    was founded, no matter how signif9icant members may 

    feel it to be.

    Photos would also be very valuable for this exercise & 

    will be returned after a copy is made.

    If you are interested in assisting Rob in the 

    development of this historical record please contact 

    him at the Club or phone him on 0409106576.

    Ladies’ Tennis Opening Day was held on Wednesday 28 August from 8.30 am.  It was really pleasing to see a number of new faces playing as well as a few who have committed to attend over the next few weeks.  Mandy Simonetti did a great job in organising the morning including some enticing food in the Tennis Shed. 

    Our coach, Andrew Woodward, also attended and was involved in coaching tips for the ladies including court positioning, volleying and doubles play.  

    Thanks so much Mandy and Andrew.  

    Andrew will be re-commencing the popular Cardio Tennis on Tuesday 3 September and available for group or individual coaching.  Newcomers to cardio tennis will be able to enjoy a free trial session and adult coaching will be $20.00 per session. 

    Great to see such a happy group gathering in such nice weather!

    Happenings Around The Club

     

    EVERYBODY PLEASE NOTE:

    The South West Men’s Vets Golf is being played this Wed 21st of August at the DDCC.
    The Golf Course and Bike Trails are closed for this event until 5pm.
    This means you CANNOT ride the bike trails, you CANNOT play Golf and you CANNOT walk across the course as there is a great chance you may be hit by a golf ball- yes sometimes golfers DON’T hit straight!!
    During the ladies 3 day golf weekend many people were coming onto the course to walk themselves and their dog/s etc. Bikers were riding the course despite it being closed. You may think you won’t get hit however errant golf balls are very common!! Also you are moving while the golfers are hitting and that puts the golfer off- so please be aware and walk and ride elsewhere when the course is closed. The golfers give up their weekends of golf for bike events to occur so please reciprocate when golf has the odd event on.
    Thank you.

People volunteered time, food and a lot of effort to conduct a very successful weekend of golf with 102 ladies playing Saturday and 102 playing Sunday. Some volunteers did not even belong to the golf section and we sincerely thank them- we could not have run the weekend without your help! Thank you!

    The comments about our lovely Club facility and the excellent condition of the course were overwhelming!!

    These type of events highlight and promote our Club and makes it known far and wide that we have something very special here at the DDCC. “Super effort” to ALL volunteers who contributed on the weekend.

A huge thank you to all golf members (men & ladies) for their phenomenal effort over the weeks leading up to and including the 3 day golf weekend at the Club. Your team work was exemplary and a credit to one and all!!! 

Thank you for all the donations of food and time. A special mention for the ladies who manned the kitchen and their admiral leaders Beth, May, Pat & Gaye- a sterling job by all!

Thanks to all the ladies who manned the raffles, gave out gift bags, made and packed sandwiches, served soup, set up tables, cleared tables & washed up, cooked, cleaned decorated and all the other jobs- it was a superb effort.

To all the men who spotted out on the course, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, as we wouldn’t have been able to get the big field through without your help. We hope you enjoyed those after drinks! 

Thank you to Rob, the Chef, for helping us with the food requirements for so many ladies over the weekend. The kitchen worked extremely well with everyone working together under Rob’s valued guidance.

To our bar person Leanne we say a big thank you for your work behind the bar -much appreciated Leanne! 

A special thanks must go to Ron Carmody for all the work he does above and beyond all expectations- nothing is ever too much for Ron- those new hole direction signs look fantastic Ron!! Thank you!

Lastly, a huge thank you to the shed crew, ably led by Barry Jackson, for all their work out on the course- we had so many positive comments and it is credit to you all!!
