3 more sleeps until we reopen the Clubhouse, see the 5km and many other restrictions removed, and welcome fully vaccinated Members back to our Bars and Restaurant.
Monday 11 October is NRGC Club Day, and we will celebrate the occasion with extended Happy Hours from 5-7pm, including complimentary snacks. We hope to see you there!
The lockdown was eased slightly by the Reciprocal programme, first innovated by your Club and then replicated across greater Sydney, which enabled Members to play at some Clubs within 5kms. It made a significant difference to me personally as I was able to play 2 rounds at Muirfield (thank you!), but I was extremely disappointed that the Club closest to where I live elected not to be as community minded. Members who have not been able to play at your Club (as a result of the lockdown) will have preferential bookings for the next few weeks - further details below.
Not surprisingly, the lockdown has had a silver lining with green fees significantly up. Your Board wanted to share this and considered several options. One overriding consideration is that our Constitution requires that Members must receive equitable benefits - a tenet that is core to our values both as a Board and Club.
Therefore, it is with pleasure that your Board has decided to credit all financial Playing Members over the age of 18 with $100 on your account. This credit can be used in the Bars or Restaurant between 11 October 2021 and 28 February 2022.
Finally, as we enter this new age, thank you for your support and a gentle reminder that we still have a way to go....
Mark Mathieson - President
