Captain’s CornerPublished on 21st November 2019
I would like to start by saying thank you to Ben Brown. I have been on holiday for four weeks and during that time away the Club had the Championships, Foursome Championship and the time sheet trial. Ben took over as Captain and did a great job. Once again thanks Ben and also Greg Sheaves who assisted Ben during this busy time.
As I just mentioned the Club Championships, I would like to thank everyone who competed in the event, what makes it such a good event is the whole club getting involved. Congratulations to the winners.
Always a special thing to win the championship in any grade. Well done!
On Saturday the 16th was the final round of the Foursomes Championship, this year the field and number who wished to qualify was up on last year which is great to see. Congratulations to the winners.
A Grade Ben Wilson & Luke Cincotta 146
B Grade David Mead & Steve Panetta 165
C Grade Gordon Edwards & Ron Lawson 187
D Grade Phil Town Ted Brick 209
Special Mention to Luke Cincotta who won the Match Play, Club Championship and Foursomes all in the one year, it shows that the more you practice, you will get the results.

As most of you are aware the Saturday time sheet trial has concluded, the Golf Committee and the Board will review the trial and inform members of the outcome. We have received useful feedback from many members which we will be taking notice of.
Lastly course conditions, on my return I was pleasantly surprised at how good the condition of the course was. We will definitely be praying for some rain now as the course is just starting to dry out. Our dams are at approximately 65% of capacity which will start to drop pretty quickly in these conditions.
Good Golfing. Glenn Woodley – Captain
