You should all have received a book of Raffle tickets in the mail.
It would be appreciated if you can sell and return them to the Office as soon as possible.
Additional books may also be obtained from the Office.
Your support would be much appreciated, as every dollar raised will help make up for some of the significant losses the Club has incurred during the recent flooding.
Please note that the draw (GOOD LUCK!!) will take place on Saturday 12 November, not the 13th as shown on the tickets.
John Davie - Club Secretary.

Full Bore on the 4th - 20/10/16
Thank goodness the recent sunny days have dried the 4th out enough to allow most of the mud to be removed from the 4th fairway, which was one of the worst affected by the floods. A bob cat was going flat chat down there today doing some more clearing work.

Ross "The BOSS" McFarlane does it yet again!!
Congratulations to Ross McFarlane who notched up his 7th consecutive State Veterans Championship title at The Sands Torquay on 3 - 4 October.
It was Ross's 8th title in the past 9 years which is a new record no. of wins in the Championships, and one unlikely to be surpassed.
Ross finished with 75 on the first day, and took a one shot lead into the final round which was a tough one for all players, having to contend with rain and strong winds. He didn't let the conditions get to him though carding an 82, and going on to extend his winning lead to 6 shots from Championship runner-up Peter Thompson from Barwon Valley who also put in an extremely good performance over the two days.
Well done guys!!

The clean-up begins. One of the teams clearing sediment from the greens on Mon 19/9.
Further work was undertaken on Tuesday to hose down the greens and remove any remaining silt.
Any assistance with further clean-up operations would be welcomed. If you can make it down, even if for just an hour or two, it would be great.
Special thanks from Robert McFarlane, Colin Foster and the Committee, to everyone who has been working hard the past few days to help bring the course back to normal.
The "Barwon Ladies" haven't let the course closure stop them having a good time. They took the opportunity today ( 21/9) to socialize and enjoy lunch a little further down the "Barwon" at Barwon Edge.
