Bannockburn Golf Club News

September has been a relatively quiet month at BGC with the usual Saturday, Wednesday and mid week events.

A number of our ladies played in the Ladies Sandscrape Championships at Avoca though and we hosted a great Noel Tanner Silver Salver event on the 7th in which all who participated enjoyed the game and the course..

Our grounds crew have spent the month preparing for some busy time ahead with aerovating, spreading of Gypsum, tee development, fertilising, replanting, scrape maintenance and spraying all on the agenda and with mowing and irrigating coming back on stream to add to the workload.  They are looking forward to preparing a top course for our Open in February.  We thank all who help with this work as it is hard work, demanding and requires a lot of good volunteer effort and commitment to make it all work well.

Our club rooms were utilised during the month for birthdays, business gatherings and the like and it is pleasing to see more inquiries being received for its use in the coming months.

One of our local plumbers, Nick Harding donated a second hand greens mower to the club during the month.  We thank Nick for his kind support of our club and will put the mower to great use as we try and trick up the surrounds for special events like the Open.

We are commencing a 6 week beginners programme on Thursday 8 October.  Our Captain Rob looks forward to giving some tips, coaching and good advice to anyone interested in coming along for the clinics.We are also commencing our next Children’s clinic – for 6 weeks – on Saturday 10 October so send those budding golfers along for some good tuition.

We have our Ladies Memorial 4BBB Stableford event on Wed 21st of October and look forward to seeing the trophy hotly contested again this year.

A Trivia night is organised for Friday 23 October as we encourage folk to come along and have a good time with trivia With A Twist.  The guys run a fun night with some great questions and fun during the night and the usual opportunity to acquire some great memoriabillia at auction during the night.

The AGM is on Friday 30 September and is an opportunity to come and listen to the President, Treasurer and Sub Committee Convenors report on the last 12 months.  At the end of formal proceedings, reports, committee elections, etc, we also throw the floor open for any general discussion, feedback and suggestions for the incoming committee to take on board for the 12 months ahead.

Also coming up on Sun 8 November is the Annual Stephen Hughes Ambrose event  - all you golfers put that one in your diary.

Doug McKenna is living up to his annual commitment of feeding the masses on Grand Final Day.  The weather looks like it will be brilliant for golf in the morning and the two teams competing will certainly put on a display of hard, tough footy.  We thank Doug (and Diane) for thir kindness and support of this annual event.

And for the rehabittees, Bryan Harmon is now walking 3 - 4 km a day following his heart Operation and Diane McKenna, while struggling to get enough sleep is starting to get more movement in her shoulder.  John Donoghue is still struggling with that ankle of his and Murray Satchell, ever the wise one, bought himself a ride on buggy during the month so that he can keep playing golf until he is 100!

Happy golfing for the month ahead.
