A day for Wayne 

This Sunday we have a Memorial Day for Wayne Vickery who passed suddenly late last year. We would like to encourage all players, member or not, to join us in remembering Wayne in a special game of golf.

We will be playing individual stableford but with a twist at the end. All scores from each hole will go on the board for mystery skins and mystery two-person multiplier.

So, anyone has a chance to win the many prizes that are up for grabs on the day, including the memorial trophy and other novelty event prizes.

There will be presentation and raffles from 5pm and all are welcome to attend.     

This is to be the last golf report for the year and all the staff and board would like to thank all our patrons, members and sponsors for making 2012 a very successful year for the Yass Golf Club.

Through our major raffle we were able to give the golf club a very stable financial outlook and we thank all who purchased tickets.

To our volunteers who came and spent many an hour on the course we also say thank-you. Sunday evening will be our last get together for the year, so please join us to have a merry drink.

Dad’s Army December 13

With the course drying out, there is a fair bit of run on the fairways and the Dad's Army troops were able to make good use of it and hand in some good scores. Once again Handicapper Jack will have to look at his handicap next week as his 22 points collected the loot this week. He was pushed hard by Lindsay Evans 21 points, Ian Bluett 19 points, Edgar Mongan 18 points and Ken Burden 17 points who were able to take the balls that were on offer. The scoring ranged from a high of 22 down to 11 points.  

In the Business House competition last week Dad's Army had a win and claimed 6 points to put them on 31 and top of their division.

Until next time, good golfing ‘boys’
