President's Update

Dear Members, Your Board has a couple of very important things to tell you today, including the thinking behind next year's Membership Fees. But first, it has been tough, very tough. None of us could have foreseen what has transpired.

Our comradery, mateship, our Aussie Spirit; how lucky are we to be playing golf in Sydney in 2020.

It is time to celebrate!

Next Saturday night, 5th December sees the recognition of the Club Person of the Year which will be awarded to one of four worthy recipients: Gordon Edwards, Joan Flaherty, Jacky Parsons and Phil Town. If you don't know them, find them and say "G'Day and thank you". Each and every one of them has gone above and beyond and made Your Club a better place through their individual contributions.  Thanks to the overwhelming support from members who have already taken the trouble to support them through the voting process.

If you have not made a booking to what will be a great night, please do so today. There is no Law which says we cannot do the "YMCA" sitting down. Further to this Grant Newsome will provide excellent sing-alongs and background music. 

At the Meeting last night, Your Board spent some time considering where we are and what we need to do to progressively further Your Club - with the following conclusion: 

Firstly, while we would like to make an easy choice and not increase subscriptions, Your Board recognises that these are turbulent times and.....

A Friendly Reminder from your Lady Captain

Please be considerate of other players when you are down to play a team game. Even if you have not arranged to play with other people, once you put your name on the time sheet in a two or four-person event you are part of a team. If you decide to take your name off or move to a different time slot please let those you are leaving know. 

This is of course most important in a two person event as you would be depriving the person you are abandoning of a game. In any team event this is courteous etiquette.

Division 3 Winner

Please accept our apology for the incorrect image used for the Ladies Division 3 Winner in last week's 19th News. We apologise for any confusion this may have caused to members and hope this has not dimmed the celebration for our Division 3 winner Margaret Feltham nor for Jan Durham the Division 3 runner up whose image did appear incorrectly last week.  

Once again, we would like to congratulate all our 2020 Club Championship winners and runners up.

Bubblers Back in Operation 

With the Summer heat back in force this coming weekend the course bubblers have been turned back on, please use hand sanitiser before use.

The Club has also provided sunscreen for members in respective locker rooms.

The most important equipment on the golf course can be water and sunscreen so stay hydrated this weekend and slap on some protection. 

Enjoy your game!

Sid and Barney head out for a quick round of golf.  Since they are short on time, they decide to play only 9 holes.  

Sid says to Barney, "Let's say we make the time worth the while, at least for one of us, and spot $5 on the lowest score for the day."  Barney agrees and they enjoy a great game.  After the 8th hole, Barney is ahead by 1 stroke, but cuts his ball into the rough on the 9th.

"Help me find my ball; you look over there," he says to Sid. After 5 minutes, neither has had any luck, and since a lost ball carries a four-point penalty, Barney pulls a ball from his pocket and tosses it to the ground. "I've found my ball!" he announces triumphantly.
Sid looks at him forlornly, "After all the years we've been friends, you'd cheat me on golf for a measly five bucks?"

"What do you mean cheat? I found my ball sitting right here!"
"And a liar, too!" Sid says with amazement. "I'll have you know I've been standing on your ball for the last five minutes!"
