Good News

Dear Playing Members, 
Through the many recent changes in permitted travelling distances, we have been looking closely at our membership.  We know that a number of members are missing out on games due to either the local government area of where they live and more recently through living more than 5km away from the Club.

In line with the current travel restrictions, you will need to live within 5km of the Club you would like to attend.  Please note that as of Monday 23 August, further restrictions have been imposed on residents in the 12 LGAs of concern which incorporates the Parramatta LGA. We are looking at options to cater for one hour of exercise, if at all possible, for these residents where they reside within 5km of the Club.

We have reached out to a number of Clubs based on the distribution of our membership.  All other clubs in Sydney are also fielding the same concerns with their members, however we have been fortunate to have initiated limited time swaps, these partially commence this coming Monday 23 August, at the following clubs:  

Concord, Pennant Hills, Monash, Pymble, Ryde-Parramatta, Asquith, Killara and Avondale.

As at the time of writing and committing to next week's timesheets, some of the other clubs we approached are still undertaking reviews and working with their memberships and Boards regarding entering into reciprocal arrangements. The current list of reciprocals may expand in the next few weeks.  

Please contact Graham at the office via e-mail at gm@northrydegolfclub.com.au to register your interest and he will aim to accommodate your request with the spots we have been allotted.  These spots are quite limited so you may need to wait a week or so but we will endeavour to get you a game - please do not contact the reciprocal club directly.

Each of the above listed clubs have their own protocols which we acknowledge.  We note that due to the current seasonal timing, like North Ryde, over the next few weeks each of the reciprocal clubs will be undertaking renovations so some of the time swaps won't actually commence until Monday 30 August.

5km Exercise Rule

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we ask all members and guests to continue to keep up to date with what is happening and follow the latest changes to play. 

Since Monday 12.01am August 16, all our Players: Members & Visitors must live within the 5km radius to be able to play.  

We want to reassure our players that we are continually updating our COVID safety plans and we are following every government directive to remain COVID safe. 

Please be aware the police are using number plate recognition in golf car parks to ensure players are within the 5km limit, fines are being issued for those not within their 5km.  This week a member of Bonnie Doon Golf Club was fined $3,000 on the spot for being out of the 5km area.

If unsure of your distance from the Golf Club re: 5km rule click through to our 5km page.

BYO Water - Bubblers Off

Please note due to current COVID restrictions all bubblers on the course have been turned off.  As this warmer weather continues it's important to stay hydrated while you enjoy your game, so please remember to bring your own water to carry or it's available to purchase at Halfway Bar.

Vale to Barry Rex

It is with deepest regret we advise our members that Barry Rex at 89 passed away on Saturday 15 August: Barry was a long term and well respected member of our Club.

In 2011, Barry and his wife, Helen, moved to the Northern beaches to be closer to their two daughters and their families.  Sadly, after Barry suffered a stroke, it became too difficult to look after him at home so he moved into a nursing home.

He is sadly missed by his family and friends. His funeral was held today Friday 20 August with only family attending due to COVID restrictions.  Farewell good and loyal friend.

Upcoming Events

Please note due to current COVID-19 restrictions the timesheets will continue with 2 player Single Stableford competitions until restrictions are lifted.

Late Arrival

One golfer asked his friend, "Why are you so late in arriving for your tee time?"

His friend replied, "It's Sunday. I had to toss a coin between going to church or playing golf."

"Yes," continued the friend, "but that still doesn't tell me why you are so late."

"Well," said the fellow, "It took over 25 tosses to get it right!"
