April has been a strong trading month with a couple of functions and good visiting golf numbers and bar trade. We have a few extra expenses in the last month so our profit is not as high as anticipated, but still steady.
It was saddening to hear of Peter Wilson’s health issues but he is recovering well and will be back with us as soon as he is 100%.
Sharon our Domestic Maintenance Manager is also suffering some ill health. We wish her a speed recovery and are thankful that her daughter Kristy is able to assist us.
Our new apprentice Jack is settling in well and learning the job quickly. As discussed last month the new POS System is working well and will have major benefits behind the scenes with membership renewals.
We are coming into our traditionally slower trading period over winter. However, May will be helped with our Corporate Day and early June we have our Winter Classic to look forward to. From Mid-June we can only hope for a good winter and sensible river management.
Vince Kelly is doing a wonderful job with our Junior Golf Clinics. He has appealed for the donation of junior golf clubs or clubs which could be cut down.
Special thanks to Graeme Willoughby and his helpers for running the very successful Adult Learner Clinics also.
The Board is very pleased with Member response to our monthly eNews and the increased activity on the Deni Golf Club Facebook page. To give you some idea of the ‘reach’ achieved through social media, a recent photo of Terry Howe which was posted on our Facebook page when he had his “Birthday Hole In One”, was seen by 2,892 people!
Save the Date: Sunday 18th June – Volunteers Day – 10am shotgun start, 9 holes, lunch and refreshments provided.
