CURRENT UPDATES FOR MEMBERS

Sean Stuchbery’s Resignation:
As of 11 November, Sean is no longer our Course Superintendent as he has accepted a job with SunWater, which affords him free week-ends, and opportunities for promotion. Sean is leaving the club on the best of terms and expressed great sadness about this in his letter of resignation, however; the Committee appreciates the fact that he is still a relatively young man with ambition, and wishes him only the best for the future.  We have advertised Australia-wide, and the Committee should be able to make a decision regarding the new Course Superintendent towards the end of this month; in the meantime, Dylan Keam will be assuming Sean’s duties. If any members are able to volunteer some hours to assist Dylan during this period, it would be greatly appreciated. If you are able to assist, please contact Dylan on 0401 240 204 prior to doing any work on the course. Thank you in anticipation.

Practice Range Safety Netting:
After many delays due to engineering requirements, we are finally making progress with this project. We have had new designs drawn, which have enabled us to reduce the height of the netting and substantially reduce the cost of post installation; therefore, the project is now financially viable.  While the reduced height does not give the full coverage originally planned for, it will still provide a good degree of protection. Netting will be 5.5 metres high along One Mile Road, with the height increasing to 8 metres in the most prone section.  We will also be able to complete the 18th fairway boundary with a 5-metre-high net, thus considerably reducing the number of stray balls finding their way onto the 18th fairway. Materials are now being delivered, and trimming of trees will commence this week, with installation of the netting following shortly thereafter.

AGM:
Our AGM will be held in the clubhouse on Sunday 15 December, commencing at 10:30am. We would encourage members who are interested to nominate for a position on the Committee.  Nomination forms may be found in a plastic pocket pinned to the noticeboard situated on the wall near the bar.  Please Note: Notices of Motions, items for the Agenda, and nominations for Committee positions must be in the hands of the Secretary 14 days prior to the meeting – ie: [1/12/2018].

Secretary

ATTENTION ALL PLAYERS

A number of players have been entering the golf course to play or to practice on the Practice Fairway without reporting
to the Pro Shop to register prior to playing or practicing. All players are required to report to the Pro shop to register prior to playing/practicing so that the Club has a record of who is on the course for insurance purposes.  If you do not register you are in fact trespassing on the course.  In respect to volunteer workers on the course you must report/contact our Course Superintendent Sean Stuchbery prior to going onto the course.Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated.

(By order of the Committee)
