Bannockburn Golf Club
There have been some changes to the General Committee, with the resignation of Col Gillet and Steve Carty from their respective roles.


The Committee would like to take this moment to thank both of them for their contributions to the running of the club.  Some reshuffling has occurred and as a result, the changes are:
• Henk Kersten resigned from the Captain’s role to become Bar Manager
• Aubrey Joyce resigned from Vice Captain to become Club Captain
• Bert Moritz has stepped into the role of Handicapper
• Gunter Moosbrugger has joined the General Committee
• Wayne Hines has taken on the role of Vice Captain

With the Autumn weather remaining so mild, there has been some fantastic days for playing golf over the last month.  And during this time, the club has been very busy with it’s charity partners.

The Annual Good Friday Appeal Event was very well attended, with the 60 members attending raising nearly $5000 towards the Royal Children’s Hospital.  The generosity of all who attended was fantastic to see.  The weather was beautiful on the day and some great scores were recorded.

The next event saw members of the Inverleigh Golf Club come across to Bannockburn for the Annual Bannockburn vs Inverleigh ANZAC Day Memorial.  Despite the volume of rain the night before, a commemorative service was held prior to teeing off, with the flag lowered, silence held and the anthems of Australia and New Zealand sung.  The challenging playing conditions lead to a clean sweep of trophies by Bannockburn.  Over $700 was raised and donated to Legacy – again another great effort by the 30 members present.

Over the coming month, the Ladies Championships will begin as well as playing out the Golf Victoria Silver Spoon and the men will continue to play out the Eaton Cup and Captains’ Cup events. 

The club will also be starting an introductory Ladies Clinic, to be held every Wednesday for six weeks commencing 17th May, from 1-2pm.  Cost is $5 per person each session (incl. afternoon tea) and all golf equipment supplied.  We encourage anyone who has thought about taking up the game, who is looking for a new hobby or existing players looking to hone their skills, to come and see what we are about.
