This Sunday we have three mixed pairs teams travelling to Coolamatong to compete in the district playoffs for the NSW Mixed Fourball Championships. The qualifying round was played back in April, with the following pairs taking the honours; Lainie Eikenhout and Peter Brady: 48 points, Maureen Bray and Tim Kelly: 43 points, Jan and Ian Bluett: 42 points. Good luck to all on your travels to Coolamatong, with your chance to win the trip to Bonville Golf Resort for the final.
This Sunday we have an Invitation Day, with members encouraged to bring along a non-member to experience the joys of golf. There is a chance for the non-members to win some great prizes if numbers are ample. If you are a non-member and are interested in playing and don’t know any members, please contact Kirk at the Pro Shop on 6226 1977 and he will try and get you with some members.

*Dads Army Thursday May 17
Twelve Troops turned out for a fairly cool start to the Dad's Army competition this week, but as the day progressed it was a bit warmer. The cool weather didn't affect John Bewick, who cleared right away from the field having 24 points to really take the money. Check the handicap next week John. The next best was Les Puckett and Barry Topple with 20 points and Graham Howlett with 18 points after a count back all collected a ball for their fine efforts and 24 down to 12 was the range this week. In the Championships John Bewick is the 2012 champion after defeating Peter Anderson 4 and 3.
