Members please note, the Thursday competition to be played on 24th May 2018 has been altered to a Stableford competition.
With the poor weather forecast for Thursday 10th May the club will be open on Wednesday 9th May for a mid-week competition in addition to the standard ladies competition. Men wishing to play can play at anytime outside of 9:00 - 9:30 when the ladies will have full use of the tee block.
With sufficient numbers a standard mid-week competition with NTPs etc will be held, if there are not sufficient numbers all players will be entered into the weekly competition.
Please note that the mid-week competition on Thursday 10th May will still be held as usual. This is just an additional competition should players wish to take advantage of the nice weather forecast.

The program for the 2018-19 season is now out and can be found in the link below. There are some notable changes to this years program which are summarised below:
The Club Championships have been moved to February - March so that they are impacted less by a prolonged winter and the coring of the greens as well as being a time of year where the course is looking its best. Qualifying will be on the 9th and 16th February with finals to be held on the 23rd February, 2nd March and 9th March.
The movement of the Club Championships has necessitated a move to the Handicap Matchplay event too with these two events essentially swapping times.
Foursomes Championships & 2 Man Ambrose
A flow on affect from the above has also resulted in the Foursomes Championships being held slightly earlier than normal in early January whilst the 2 Man Ambrose will be held slightly later in early March.
After some member feedback requesting some variation in the competitions held on a Thursday some changes have been made to the standard stableford events on Thursday with some changed to Par competitions as well as running a couple of team based events in the form of aggregate airs competitions, which still have an individual stableford component.
This will continue to be held at its new time of late March however this will better align with the end of the season and finish of the Club Championships.
Pink Shirt Day
The Pink Shirt Day where funds are raised for Breast Cancer and members are encouraged to where a pink shirt when they play will be held off the Red tee markers for all players.
EDIT: Unfortunately due to low numbers the presentation night has been cancelled. Trophies will be presented after our Opening Day on Saturday 7th April, around 1:00 - 1:30 pm.
The annual presentation night will be held on Friday 13th April from 6:30 pm at the club rooms. This is a night where we can celebrate the achievements of players throughout the 2017-18 season including our Club Champions and Life Members.
Dinner will commence from 7:00 pm with presentations after. The cost is $30 each and bookings are essential as numbers are limited. A booking sheet and payment are available at the bar.
