    This shot from the 5th tee by Brian Dixon took some real skill. It was a test of true character - note he is still smiling. Please see below for a Rule Review on Unplayable Ball!

    This month started off with a very successful 60th Birthday Party for 90 guests. They were so appreciative that they even made a donation on top of our charge. Other functions have included the “Evening With Jane Bunn” and the Volunteers Day. Donations of delicious food from our members continues to be the secret to our success.

    The culinary skills of our male members has been in the spotlight during the winter months. Peter Seely, a qualified chef, has been very kindly preparing soup for the ladies on Thursdays. His tasty soups have been a real hit on those cold winter afternoons. You may be surprised to hear that Norm’s Casserole a few Friday nights ago was a success too. Well done Norm!

    Our C/tee now includes two new members – Bronwyn Chappell and Bev Purtill. Along with Pat Aitken, Jan Lord and Marg Menadue this certainly helps us share the load. Welcome aboard Bronwyn and Bev.

    RULE REVIEW – BALL UNPLAYABLE:

    If you believe your ball is unplayable, you may, under penalty of one stroke choose from the following 3 options:
    1. Play a ball from where your last shot was played.
    2. Drop a ball any distance behind the point where the ball lay keeping a straight line between the hole, the point where the ball originally lay and the spot on which the ball is dropped.
    3. Drop a ball within 2 club lengths of where the ball lay, not nearer the hole.
    NB. If your ball is in a water hazard and you do not wish to play it as it lies, you must proceed under the Water Hazard Rule.
