A Salutary
Reminder or Two

This week I start with Timesheets. The chart represents Green Fees for June over the past 4 years. Members will note the significant increase this year. This has both positive and negative impact. The positive is obvious but the negative is less palatable.

Increasingly, your Board and Management is being harassed by Members missing out on a game. The simple fact is that there are not enough spots, period. Your Board and Management have done everything possible to improve the situation. But, enough is enough, your Board will not tolerate this - stop it.

Part of the problem can directly be pointed at Members. Playing more than twice a week; everyone in the group logging in to get more chances of a spot (which overloads the systems), etc. We are repeatedly told that some "must be rigging the system". So, a simple message - if you are rigging the system in any way - stop it.  Members should be aware that everything is logged and traceable.

If your Board finds out that any Member is rigging the system, there will be an appointment with the Board. I cannot guess what the Board will decide but would bet good money that you will not be playing golf for a while.

Members will be aware of the events occurring in Melbourne and how hundreds of businesses have again closed their doors and entire suburbs locked down.

Research is showing that these outbreaks are often attributed to "super-spreaders" who ignore social-distancing and frequent closed areas such as bars.  All Members are reminded to keep your social distance and maintain regular hand sanitisation.

Following the Premier's lead, people who visit Melbourne or come into contact with Melbournians should not come into the Club for 14 days after contact. Whilst this may seem harsh, your Board feels that it is better to be safe than sorry.

On to positive news:

  • Vets’ Competitions are back, every week 
  • Presentations are back on
  • Competitions will have 4 spots reserved for people who have repeatedly missed out
  • Ladies' dual-tees have returned
  • Halfway has been a major hit and heaters have been installed to make it even better

Members can join the Lottery draw up to 30 minutes prior to the opening of the timesheet and will be allocated a ticket with a position number when the countdown timer reaches zero at 6pm. 

The 'Lottery' will send the first 5 members into the timesheet to make a booking, all others will get a ticket (a number) in the queue to enter the timesheet lottery.  This may add 15 to 20 seconds to the booking experience. Once the lottery is complete and the timesheet is full, if you have not got on, then your ticket will expire and then you can click onto the waitlist for your waitlist spot. Remember to cancel a game if you cannot attend for any reason.

  • Each Player can book their group of four
  • You can only login on one device or one browser (If you try doing more than one it will lock you out all together)

If using your mobile or NRGC mobile app - when you click onto bookings select the date, then select Details to access lottery timesheet (see image below ).
