If you want to get into this great game of
golf, clinics are presently being conducted
for juniors and seniors. The junior clinics
are from 4pm on Friday and senior clinics
are Sunday mornings. Note this Sunday’s
clinic will be earlier, from 8am to 9am, to
accommodate the Deniliquin Open.
In the clubhouse don’t forget to hang
around after golf for the members’ draw,
with a jackpot this week of $300. The Joker’s
Wild jackpot will also jump up quickly as it
is now increasing by $200 a week. The draw
is held at 8pm on Friday after the meat raffle
draw – your meat raffle ticket automatically
gets you in the running for Joker’s Wild.
There’s always plenty of fun and surprises
at the club on Friday nights – last week there
was an impromptu live performance with
joke telling from a 90 year old comedian,
which had everyone in stitches.
