** Time Sheets  **

To be fair to others, can you please make sure that if you have put your name on the time sheets and are unable to play you either:

- remove your name on line as soon as possible, or

- notify the office on 52435443  Note: It isn't possible to make changes on line on the day of play. Only the administrator can do this.

Ladies allocations

Guys - can you also please note that the following time slots are reserved for Lady Members on Saturdays:

10:04am through to 10:39am  inclusive

It would be appreciated if you can make sure you don't put your name, or your playing partners names, in any of these spots.

In summer, when more women play, extra slots may be allocated for them. I will keep you informed of any changes.

Thanks

Club Web Site is a great way to find out the latest news on things going on around the club as well as checking out match results which are usually available on the site the same day or early next.

Can you please let your golfing buddies know about it and how to log on. The more we get using the site the better. If you have any "newsy" items you'd like to submit I'd love to hear from you. Simply email details through to 'bvgcnews@gmail.com"      

And don't forget     If you haven't had your photo taken, please email one to the above address, so that it can be included in results 


dawn forbes hole in one.JPGLUCKY 13

Lucky is probably not the right word, a great shot is probably a better way of putting it.

Dawn Forbes, was out having a social hit today (26/6) with Elaine Hider and Helen Holmes, when she had a HOLE IN ONE on the 13th.

It's a pity it wasn't a competition day so that her feat could be officially recognized. However, a hole in one is a hole in one no matter how you look at it, and it was actually her second, the other being on the 10th in 2014 when she was again playing socially with a couple of her friends

Congratulations on a great shot Dawn. Fingers crossed your next Ace is on a match day.

O.O.B. - Changes to Local Rules effective Sat 17/6 onwards

For Safety Reasons 

1. Any ball hit from the 11th which finishes on the cut fairway on the 7th is OOB.

2. Extra OOB marker posts have now been installed in an extended line along the right hand side of the 1st fairway, up towards the water hazards. Any ball hit beyond these markers from the 9th hole will also be OOB. Note: If you are playing the "first" and go outside the markers your ball is still in play - not OOB. 

Your compliance with the above OOB rules, and Rules in General, would be much appreciated.

Kindly make sure you always check the Local Rules boards for any changes.

divot 2.jpgPlease always make sure you repair your divots & Plug Marks and any others you see.

This is especially important now that ground is softening up.

You never know you could end up in one one day and there are some deep ones out there!!

We owe it to Colin and his Ground Keeping staff to keep the course looking immaculate


Lost & Found  

If you lose something, there is a lost property box just inside the entry to the clubrooms. It's always a good idea to check to see if your item has been placed in there, especially on match days. You can also check at the pro shop, and if still no luck, you can email me at bvgcnews@gmail.com and I'll post something on the News Page for you.

Likewise , you can let me know at the same address, if you find something of value.

White Flags (By the way this is not a photo of one of our lush green greens)

As you've probably noticed, the blue flags which were being used to indicate the pin was at the back of the green, have now been replaced with white ones to make them easier to see from a distance.

Red Flag = Front
Yellow Flag = Centre
White Flag = Back

If you aren't already aware, the flags don't necessarily run in any order, but will always be different on the next two holes, and will then stay in the same order. eg  if 1st is red, 2nd white and 3rd yellow, the 4th will be red, 5th white and 6th yellow and so on.

     


  golf cart 3.jpgGolden Oldies

Have you ever heard of, or thought about joining, the Club's Golden Oldies??

I joined about 8 years ago and can honestly say I really  look forward to game day each Thursday.

The group, of which 30 or so rock up each week,  couldn't be more friendly, and you get to play with different guys each week, numbers being drawn at the 8.50a muster to decide who plays with who.

Most choose to play in the 18 hole competition, but there is also a 9 hole competition for those that don't feel up to 18 holes or have other commitments. The weekly entry fee for either is $2.00.

To save time, 18 holers start on the 1st and 10th tees, while 9 holers usually play the back nine.

There are some special handicapping and playing rules which are for the general benefit of all players and also help even things out.

When you join you will play off your club handicap for the first game, and depending on how you go it may be reduced next time around. If you win one of the two grades your handicap will come down by three,  second place will cost you two shots and third or fourth one shot. Thereafter, you will go back out one shot each week until you reach your club handicap again (max permissible)

Stableford is played each game, and preferred lies are allowed if you are inside the tree line.

After the game, is always a fun time in the Club house. Most stay for the presentations over drinks and a sandwich and you can rely on lots of fun banter, story-telling and good natured stirring.

Prizes (Golf balls) are awarded to the winners and placegetters in each grade, as well as the 9 hole competition. You can also win a ball for nearest the pins on the 3rd (2nd shot), 5th, 10th, 13th & 17th (2nd shot). If you haven't picked up some of these balls you are also in the running to win a best 9 in or out.

Twice a year we also play the RSL in a challenge game which is another great day.

If you'd like to come along one week you can count on being made most welcome.

However, to be eligible to join us, you must be a club member or prepared to pay normal green fees. You must also be over 55 and not working full time to satisfy "golden oldie" conditions.

We'd love to see some new faces join us. So if you are interested simply come to the clubhouse at about 8.15am any Thu or speak to your 'Golden Oldie" mates.  You may also contact Ivor Denison, who is the chief organizer on 5221 6733

Defibrillators

AED.jpgFor those that aren't aware, the club has two Automated External 
Defibrillators (AED's) for emergency use if someone has a Sudden 
Cardiac Arrest i.e. abrupt loss of pulse and consciousness.

There is one in the Main Office which is accessible during open hours, and one in the Clubrooms.

The AED’s are portable, safe and easy to use - you don't need any prior training. 
Once you turn them on, you simply have to follow the step-by-step instructions provided 
via voice prompts. Written instructions are also provided with the units for reference purposes.

It would be appreciated if you can let all your playing partners know about the availability 
and location of the devices.

** Using an AED within minutes of the start of Sudden 
Cardiac Arrest may restore a normal heart rhythm. 
Every minute counts. Each minute of SCA leads to a 
10% reduction in survival.**
