Welcome to our new Board members – Kym Sandford and Margaret Radeski. Following the resignation of Ian Lance, Ali Ferguson has been appointed to fill the casual vacancy. The contribution of our outgoing Board members – Phil Hodgkinson, Anita Gorsuch, Ian Lance and Brenda Campbell deserves to be acknowledged and we thank them sincerely for all their hard work. Congratulations also to Kathy Simpson and Pam Jarratt who were awarded Life Memberships at our AGM. Both very well deserved.
Our combined Volunteers/Staff/Board Christmas Party and Presentation day was a great success. Thanks to our Captains, Margaret Radeski and John Irwin as well as our House Committee. Congratulations to all of our winners.
October/November trading has been excellent with a number of functions. Thanks again to our House Committee. 2016/17 was a financially rewarding result but we are facing pressure to maintain this result going forward due to declining membership and increasing costs. These challenges are the driving force behind future decision making by the Board. The Board will be looking at this year’s capital expenditure and prioritising future improvements.
The Board has decided to reverse its decision regarding compulsory “golden hole entry” on competition days due to feedback from members. The “golden hole entry” will now be voluntary.
Members should note the following clarification regarding Match Play entry: All matches incur a $5 Green Fee to be paid on the day. Any member paying the Annual User Pay fee does not incur the Match Play fee. This ruling has been in force since September.
As you know, last year we trialled extended opening hours in the Club House during the Christmas period. Unfortunately, it did not result in any increase in trade. Consequently, this year we will revert to the Pro Shop only between Christmas and New Year.
I wish all our members, staff, volunteers and Board a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
This month we have catered for thirteen functions!
I would like to thank Meredith, Barb, Denise and Dot for coming to our aid and making the most beautiful sandwiches for the Day Wake. We do appreciate that extra help when we have little notice of a function.
Annette and Kerran thanks for the lovely salads and all your help on Volunteers Day.
When we received notification of Paula’s Wake we were able to use the Mail Chimp email system to get word out to the Lady Golfers in order for them to help with catering. We had a beautiful spread of food to offer the guests. To all the ladies who donated food, what an effort, thank you all so much. Karen Zanatta, thank you for your most generous help, it was greatly appreciated.
I really would like to say that our House Committee Ladies did an excellent job this month. You should all be very proud of yourselves.
Our profit to date is $37.000, great job girls.
