Another favourite event on our Christmas Calendar is Hams Days this Saturday 10 Dec. Presentation of hams to the winning teams will be at the Clubhouse from 5:30pm. If your group are amongst the lucky/skilled winners, remember at least one of your group must be there to collect the hams - uncollected hams will go to the next best scorecard.

New Furniture for Christmas - 9th Tee

Through the talented work of our dedicated Course Mechanic, Taylor Smith, we are very happy to set the "benchmark" for beautiful handcrafted course furniture at North Ryde.  

Taylor cleverly recycled our very own course timber to create the first of these masterpieces which we'll use for years to come.  

Earlier this week Taylor completed this bench now well placed at the 9th tee, so on your next round you might like to "road test" it?

Turkey Day Wednesday 7 December

Turkey Day

A bumper field of 250 members enjoyed perfect conditions spread over a double shot-gun start to play in the Club's annual Turkey Day on Wednesday, 7 December. After the event, courtesy of John Law's sponsorship, we all enjoyed some great tunes with "The Bell" performing.  Some impressive scores were achieved under the Ambrose format and those fortunate enough, took home the spoils of a frozen turkey.  See images above and click this link  for some additional photos from the day.

Women's Ham Day Thursday 8 December 

Women's Hams Day

The first ever Women's Hams Day was fantastic and enjoyed by everyone.  One could even say it was  a sensational success. Everyone stayed for the presentation and were so excited to find out who the lucky winners were.  I don't think we have seen such a joyful atmosphere for so long now. 

To add to the excitement there was even a hole in one on the 14th hole which I believe was the second one for Dagmar Pysik in the last two months. Congratulations Dagmar.

Congratulations to all the winners and our thanks to the Board for including the women in the hams day festivities. We look forward to doing it again next year.  Click link for full details of our winners.
