Junior Wrap Up 2023  

A massive congratulations to all of our Juniors and Cadets with their hard work and dedication paying off. We have seen a huge number of cadets transforming into Junior members and our current junior golfers taking great strides in improving their games and growth as members. Big achievements of multiple holes in one, JNJG victories and Junior Pennants/Encourage Shield competitiveness.

It has been great seeing so many Juniors/Cadets putting in so much effort coming up to practice and compete against one another to improve their game - we cannot wait to see where this takes our future stars of the game.

We had big changes to our annual school holiday golfing camp, hosting it here at NRGC over two days shutting the front 9. We had a total of 6 coaches between 50 kids who ranged from beginners to junior members, we can only see this camp getting bigger and better with the years to come. 

Huge thank you to the Board of North Ryde Golf Club for allowing us to close 9 holes to accommodate the camp. Also thank you to the Veteran Committee for missing their Monday game and the Ladies Committee for playing off 1 tee on the Tuesday, we certainly could not have held the camp without your co-operation.

The Juniors & Cadets enjoyed an end of year party and presentation evening last Friday 24 November giving us the opportunity to highlight some of these wins.  A big thank you to Junior Captain Yu Wang & Vice Captain Elijah Chahine for putting the effort in during their own time to volunteer for all juniors. Also, the parents, volunteers and coaches for all being a part of such a successful year.

Vet's Round Up

Vet's Hams Day will be our last game for the year. Our first game for 2024 is scheduled for Monday, 22 January followed by Monday, 29 January.

As this is the Vets' Committee's last contribution for the year, we take this opportunity to thank all of you for your valued support during the year and we hope that you will be able to show the same level of support again throughout 2024.

We, the Vets' Committee, would like to wish all Members and their families a

Meet Monte

Meet Monte Pytka our latest addition to the North Ryde Golf Club Staff Team. I think I would certainly label Monte a local, living just down the road in West Ryde. Not new to working behind the bar, she comes with over 4 years of experience but like any job there are differences, so she is certainly happy to learn and always with a fabulous smile. Monte like some of our other staff has a passion for sport, one of these passions was training for competitive swimming this has now moved to Rugby and heading into the pre-season playing for Gordon. She loves the physical challenge of this and possibly no surprise, her other hobby is rock climbing. If fact, Monte loves anything outdoors so add to this bush walking and camping. Monte also admits that her other split personality is gym junkie and if she can will be there 6 days a week. Maybe not surprisingly she is on the last legs of a personal training certificate.

Don't hesitate to say G 'Day and welcome Monte to the North Ryde family when you see her serving at one of the Bars in the upcoming weeks.
