There was no event on Saturday due to the heat.

Today we will only play a nine-hole event with names in at 7.45am due to the expected 40°C.

Wednesday, January 22 will be stableford and monthly medal.

The chicken run last Thursday attracted 17 players with the course in great condition but the weather a little warm.

The winner was Gary Troeth with +2.

Darrell Baldwin was nearest the pin on the 16th.

Next week is a Stroke round on the front nine.

The next four person ambrose competition will be the fundraiser for the Shaun Baker appeal on Friday, January 31. Entries are being taken by Ronda on 57942382 or Annette 0438942377.

Cost is $15/player for golf and meal or $10 just for meal.

This week is the start of the Nine Hole Whack of the Week and is a new week-long competition for those people who cannot come on Wednesdays or weekends to play golf.

This competition is designed to be family friendly and a great way to introduce golf to young children.

No handicap is required with a $5 entry fee — $3 for club members including social members and $2 for children.

The comp book will be in the green fee box so just fill in your details.
