Grab Your Bag Tag!

It is now compulsory that all members have the new North Ryde Bag Tags on their golf bags. If you haven't grabbed your's yet, please do so from the office.

These RFID Bag Tags were introduced to provide the Board and Management with crucial data in course usage, choke points and pace of play monitoring. This data will be used to improve the course design, the flow and improve the enjoyment of golf for all players.

RFID tags do not contain GPS technology and are only recognised by the five tracking stations on the course at the 2nd, 7th,10th, 13th & 18th holes.

If any member has any concerns, please contact the office.

Ladies Report

Upcoming Drawn Game
Our first medal round is scheduled for Tuesday, 8 February.  This is our first drawn game for the year.  If you wish to participate in this competition, please ensure you put your name, GA Handicap and Membership number on the sheets in the locker room.  The draw for this game will be done on Wednesday, 2 February.

If you wish to be eligible for any of the Golf NSW Women's events, fees must be paid before the first medal round.  Due to most of last year's Golf NSW events not being able to be completed due to COVID, last year's special events money will be carried over to this year.  A list of those that have paid will be put up in the locker room.

If you have not paid and wish to participate in the Golf NSW Events (Medal Rounds, NSW Bowl, Goodwill Plate), please see one of the committee who will help you with this. 

Slow Play: A reminder to everyone that your place in the field is immediately behind the group in front of you, not in front of the group behind.

Tips to help with pace of play: 

  • Be at the tee and ready to play 15 minutes before your tee time.
  • Move on to the tee as soon as the previous group have left it so that you can hit off as soon as the group in front is out of range. 
  • Watch the flight of every shot, until it stops, not just your own.  This will result in less searching time and fewer lost balls.
  • Keep up with the group in front of you.
  • Be efficient on the putting green, If the next tee is clear, when two people have completed putting, they should then proceed to the next tee and tee off before marking their cards.

2nd (Liverpool GC) - 67 (5 under)
3rd (Brighton Lakes GC) - 75 (5 over)
4th (Cumberland GC) - 73 (1 over)
5th (Muirfield GC) - 71 (2 over

A great finish after not so good round at Cabramatta - Enzo played the last 4 rounds in a total of only 3 over.

Great fightback - Congratulations Enzo. Enzo came 15th out of 98 boys (13years - 17years boys) and 4th (14years - 15years) boys division. Watch out Major Pennants - I am sure he will do very well.
