Captain's Report

*Premier League – Twelve teams are trying to take down the Reluctant Heroes this season with the HAKKAS currently leading the way. I am expecting an apology from Pro Ben Patten at some stage, who suggested the only reason we were on top is that most of us are teachers and only work six months of the year. When l get back from holidays l will follow this up!

*Bunker Rakes - Please put the rakes in the middle of the bunker parallel to the fairway.

*Tee Markers – Remember to use Black markers on Saturday, White on Thursday and Blue on Tuesday’s.

*Murray Downs Challenge – On Sunday the 15th of April and a number of mixed teams are trying to win it away from home for the first time. Good Luck.

*Handicap Match-play – We are up to the Semi-Final stage which is to be played by April 22nd.

*Bill Mead – Congratulations to all involved and especially Richard who put on this amazing week for all our veteran visitors. To have so many visit, love the golf courses and all the other facilities was great for our Club.

*CEO Shane outlined the plan for the golf courses moving forward at the recent AGM, with the Board allocating more money to Andrew and his staff to get our East course back into the top 100 public courses in Australia. Bunker renovations, rolling the greens more and the purchase of an excavator are all a step forward to achieving this goal. The purchase of water and updating of the watering system are also on the agenda

*Course Works – work has begun on 16 West to remove some of the plants on the left hand side of the fairway and in front of the Fairways Estate.

*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.

Let’s hope we have our second Aussie winner of the US Masters this month!

Privilege Cup

You hold the cup until it is next played for and you may ask any member to fill it for you for the period you hold it. If you ask a member twice in the period you must buy him the same size drink. It may be filled with any tap beer or soft drink if you are not a drinker.

A junior may win the Privilege Cup but it is only to be filled with soft drink if the junior is under drinking age.
