The new board are excited about the golfing year ahead having concluded the year strongly by running the club championships and hosting the annual Western Districts Golf Pennants for the second year in succession.

he club also enjoyed pennants’ success with the handicap team consisting of Geoff Mills, Bob Dwyer, Mark Barwick, and Tony Wilson winning their event in a hotly contested field of golfers from across the district.

Tony Wilson also claimed the B grade scratch prize with 77 off the stick.

Under the guidance of Nick White, the club also promoted women’s golf recently by coordinating a successful ladies and girls, Golf Her Way evening on Thursday, November 25, [as reported in last week’s edition] with 13 women enjoying a social get together with some basic coaching followed by nibbles and drinks.

Future events to continue the promotion of ladies in golf will continue in coming weeks under the guidance of Golf NSW and we encourage any mums, daughters, and ladies interested, to come along and join in.

From the annual general meeting, the committee also endorsed the addition of a new level of membership for social golfers, to be implemented soon.

As the summer months approach, we look forward to reintroducing twilight golf and the possibility of including a business house teams style competition.

The numbers of social golfers hitting the course is great to see and the committee are very keen to cater for the needs of these groups.
