Pennant – The Mighty Jindera Golf Club took out the 2021 MDGA Pennant competition last Sunday the 21st Nov at Thurgoona. It was a hard fought affair against a very competitive Culcairn side where all games bar one went to the 17th and 18th holes before being decided.

Thanks go out to Steve Keshire and the MDGA (Murray Districts Golf Association) team for organising another great Pennant competition.

The competing clubs were :- Jindera (A/B), Culcairn (A/B), Holbrook, Howlong (A/B), Thurgoona (A/B) Corowa (A/B), Albury and MDGA All Stars.

Course Works – The grounds committee have been working hard over the past few weeks installing some “Couch” turf around some of the greens in a bid to encourage it to spread out to the fairways thereby improving the approach to the greens. Currently targeted are the 1st, 6th, 8th and 9th greens. We ask all players to treat the new work as “GUR” and please take care, as this is the start of on-going works in this area.

January Update

The best way to describe January is WET!

While its been good for growing grass – the flip side is a lot of work mowing and keeping the course presentable.

We have decide to undertake a program of laying couch turf around some of the greens in an attempt to improve the approach to the greens .

Beginning in December 2021 around 100sqm of couch has been laid around the 6th and partially around the 1st, 8th and 9th.
