Weekly update 12/09/16

Yes!! it’s almost here!! Daylight saving starts next weekend!! That also means it’s almost time for Twilight golf to start. Get your friends, neighbors and kids together for the start of twilight golf on Wednesday 12th October. $8 member entry, $5 junior entry and $10 visitor entry and the ever popular $10 twilight meals.

We need your help! We are relocating blocks from the 18th tee, we would be most grateful if you are able to take a few blocks as you pass and put them on the pallet. Many hands make light work of a heavy job.

A huge thank you to all those involved in the Spring Race Meeting and dinner held last Sunday evening. We served out 128 meals from meat, veges and dessert donated and cooked by the Ladies and then followed with the race meeting. Cheeses were donated by Fonterra. All up we made a profit of $6381. A great effort coordinated by Glenda Allen. It was so good to see the Clubroom full and being used by Club members and friends. Thank you.

This week we have had the sad passing of Eugene Shepherd after a short illness. Eugene was a past member and will be remembered for his dedication to the rules of golf and his involvement with the golf referees association.

We have been looking at safety improvements around the course. The stairs up the side of the clubhouse are a current project as they have become slippery in wet weather. Thank you to Norm York for installing the metal treads on the stairs.

We have spare Tee signs available for sponsorship, cost per year is from $300 per sign, 600mm x 300mm. If you know anyone who may be interested, please contact the office.

It’s Spring! Get a head start on your summer garden by picking up some locally produced sheep pellets. $15 per bag available from the office. (bags approx 15kg)
