  • Hogan claims Cup after four-way count

    A four-way countback was needed to determine the winner of the popular Borella Cup on Saturday.
    In the end Simon Hogan took the prized trophy, which comes with a pewter of your favorite beverage, paid for by a member you select, on any competition day for three months.
    His 41 points also won A grade, on countback from Angus McMillan.
    Also scoring 41 points was B grade winner and runner-up, Greg Collins and Dan Wade, with C grade taken out by Peter O’Brien with 36 points on countback from Gayle Beckton.
    On Wednesday Ian Fuller scored 40 points to win A grade, a shot clear from Wayne Hodgson, and in B grade Rob Cameron stayed on the back foot and scored the day’s best total of 41 points, two clear of John Metcalfe.
    On Thursday, July 6, the ladies held their stroke monthly medal event which was won by Patricia Aitken with a score of nett 69, with Sue Butcher runner-up on 74 nett.
    Tomorrow is singles versus par, and Sunday is a Mixed Fourball Best Ball versus Par and qualifying round for the Western Riverina Championships, with top four teams to qualify. A time sheet is in the Pro Shop, and it will be 11.30am for a 12 noon shotgun start.
    In the clubhouse, if you don’t have tickets or a table for the Christmas In July celebration on August 4, see June and get this organised. It will be a fun night out.
    The Joker’s Wild jackpot is creeping up again, and is not far shy of $4,000 which would be a wonderful Christmas in July present. All you need is a ticket in the meat raffle, and be at the club at 8pm on Friday night. Raffle tickets are on sale from 6pm.
    Again, it’s a fun night out and the Friday night revenue raised at the club is an important part of keeping us viable and keeping membership fees down.

  • DENI GOLF CLUB eNEWS 5 / 2017

    Great to see Peter back after his illness. He is pictured here carrying out the extensive drainage work on the 17th fairway. He tells us that he dug this trench all by himself!!

    It is that time of the year when your Board is entrusted with the task of looking long and hard at Membership Fees.
    Your Board is here to represent the wishes of the members. Following feedback from members, increases have been kept to a bare minimum. The increase is essential for our Club to remain sustainable.
    Whilst our Affiliation Fees have risen by 5%, our full membership will increase by only 3%.
    Non Full memberships will increase by a higher percentage but these are reflective of a lower membership rate.
    Your Board is constantly looking at ways of decreasing costs on the course without compromising our beautiful Golf Course and surrounds as well as increasing revenue.
    Maximising visitor revenue is imperative as Golf related revenue has to increase. Green Fees and Cart Hire have not been increased at this point, however, analysis over the next 2 months, may see a small rise in these areas to increase revenue from our visitors.
    2017/2018 membership renewals will be as follows:

    Full Membership                                   $495.00
    Recreational and Beginners                 $270.00
    Country/Interstate                                 $180.00
    Juniors                                                  $70.00
    Cadets                                                  $130.00
    Social Members                                    $25.00

    Ahhh....that's how you did it Pete.  Many thanks for the loan from Vicki and Taffy Brunker! The Club appreciates your generosity.

    Our Community Service participants have started and we are very grateful to Terry Howe along with Noel Nicholas and Brian Dudley who are assisting with signing them in and supervising jobs organised by Terry.
    We have had a number of functions, all successful, with great feedback. Once again, thank you to all involved. The “Evening With Jane Bunn”, organised by the West Berriquin Irrigators was well attended and very informative. Our Indian Night is fully booked so we look forward to seeing a big crowd (160 people) on 14th July.
    The Corporate Day on 12th May was an enormous success for the Club with over $11,0000 raised. This money will be invested back into the course with as much as possible being spent locally. This major fundraiser was ably organised by Adam Wettenhall. David Grant’s entertaining, after dinner speech was enjoyed immensely by everyone in attendance. Winners on the day was Brian Jennings’ team.  Rob Landale’s team, 2016 winners, finished in second place. Once again, special thanks to our generous sponsors.
    Congratulations to all the winners at the recent Winter Classic and thanks to all those who contributed to a very successful weekend, in particular our sponsors Riverina Watermatic, Deniliquin Tile Centre and Cleaner Carpets Deniliquin.
    The Volunteers Day was successfully run on Sunday 18th June. Our fabulous volunteers played 12 holes of golf, followed by lunch and refreshments. A great day was had by all.
    We are looking forward to the NSW Vets Week of Golf being held on our course from 9th to 13th October.

    The course has been ravaged by consistent frosts over recent weeks. The result is totally dormant fairways and tees which does nothing for the appearance of the course but fortunately the course is still playing well. Growth rate on the greens has almost come to a standstill but as far as ‘playability’ goes, the greens perform really well this time of year. We were delighted on the feedback from the Riverina Ladies Golf Association, who recently played their Pennant Final on our course. The visitors found the course to be up there with the best in the Riverina.

    The focus for last month was on presenting the course for the Winter Classic which went very well. We have now moved on to the major drainage work on the 17th and 15th fairways. Water and power lines have had to be located at both sites, as well as some adjustments to the existing sprinkler lines. The 17th project is well underway, with the trench dug (thanks to Taffy for the use of his excavator) and pipe laying started. We are still to finish the pipe laying, construct the drainage pits, replace the bridge slabs, bed in with red loam and backfill with clay and sand. When this project is finished we will start the first of three stages on the 15th.The design is complete and pipes have already been purchased.

    Jack is away at TAFE this week, but continues to prove his worth on the course.

    The frosty mornings have allowed us to burn off many of our piles of debris at the tip, with still some to go. An attempt was made on the Cumbungi on the 14th early one morning but it was too wet and will have to be done in the middle of the day. Cumbungi on the 12th will need to be poisoned before it can be burnt.

    The community service people have started. The focus has been on the 17th creek and under Noel Nicholas’s watchful eye and his off-sider Brian Dudley, they have done a good job. We have plenty of work to keep them busy so we would hope to keep around the clubhouse spotless and get a lot of tree trimming and general clean up done around the course.

    Over the winter months we try to get all of our machinery maintenance and repairs up to date. This is usually done on the rainy days which have been few and far between so far.

    Clean up around the shed continues. The three large trees are gone and only the stumps need grinding out before leveling off and construction of the fence can start. We look forward to the fence being completed, making our work yard neat and private.

    Members will notice that we now have 100m and 200m markers from the middle of the green. Thank you to Ross Pogonoski for his assistance with measuring.

    Two trees are to be removed on the 17th fairway shortly.

    The bunker on the left hand side of the 11th green has been identified as number one priority for bunker renovations.

    During August, winter grass and broad leaf weeds will be sprayed across the entire course.

    The next major green renovations will be carried out on 6th and 7th November. These dates have been chosen to cause the least disruption.

    Good golfing.
    Terry Howe & Ian Fuller.

    Deniliquin hosted the RLGA Pennant Final. Albury Commercial defeated Berrigan. The winning team is pictured here with Gail O'Halloran, representing RLGA. Lovely to have Gail back in our Club.

    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.

    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.
