Thursday December 7th

A big field of one hundred and eighty one played a stableford event on the East course with Peter Whitbourn taking out the A Grade event with a fine score of forty two points. A couple of veterans, Des Carey and Steve Presser fought out the minor placings. Col Johnson and Ross North had the scores of the day to fill the first two placings in B Grade and Alex McCrae held off the in-form Peter Boek for the major C Grade prize. As we all know form in golf can change very quickly – usually for the worse - and it was only recently that Peter was mentioning to the Captain that his game was in disarray. Perhaps he is in a position now to give the CEO a few tips for his game! Thirty-nine points won a voucher.

B Grade: Col Johnson (Nett 68), 1. Ross North (43), 2. Rob Kilgour (42), 3.

Captain's Report

*2018 Committee – Vice Captain Joel Watson, Secretary Rob Kilgour, Handicapper Stewart Mancer. Terry Jeoffreys, Noel Bailey, Ted Fordham, Keith Jenkinson & David Cockroft. Welcome to David and thanks to Steve Jones for his contribution over the last few years.

*Course Information – New cards are being printed and will cover the “artificial surfaces” on 3, 9 and 18 West around the greens. Two new drop zones will be put on the 3rd. Stickers are being ordered for the rake handles to indicate where to put them in the bunker.
Competition Prize Breakdown – Of the $10 you pay for the comp. $4.50 is allocated for prizes less 10% GST and less a further 10% for the Match Committee to use on costs for the year. This includes various $50 and $25 prizes for the winners and sometimes runners-up of our “gold letter” events such as club champs. and major trophies and items such as balls for pennant teams and engraving for trophies, sub par, monthly medal pins etc. In each comp. we try to maintain 3 Grades and a minimum of ten in the loyalty points run-down. If the field is under $150 we may have to reduce the 1st, second and 3rd prizemoney, only have two prizes for each grade or go back to two or even one grade for the day. As you can appreciate it is a juggling act and the goal posts change each day. If you would like to see how it works drop into the Match Committee room after 4.30pm on a comp day.

*Score Cards – Can everyone please hand their scorecards in even if you do not finish the round, check your cards have the correct scores and crosses, are signed and make sure everything is correct when they are saved. To look for a scorecard that has not been handed takes considerable time as does checking discrepancies between what score has been saved and what it says on the scorecard. It has been very frustrating lately for the Committee and with your help crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s we can get things right.

*Summer Pennant – We are entering two men’s teams in the GM competition. Joel has done a great job with the new uniforms with a jacket, shirt and cap as part of the package. If you want to play put your name down in the pro-shop. The comp starts on the first Sunday in January.

*Syllabus 2018 – Next year’s booklet will run from January to December so a new booklet will be printed for the new year. Please do not refer to the 2017 booklet for the January and February events as we have made several changes!

*If you have suggestions or see something on the course that needs attention do not hesitate to talk to one of the committee or contact me.
