October Update

The rain continues ….. however our course is still holding up well, such that we are the only club who has been able to host “Pennant” so far this year. The first round of pennant was hosted by Jindera on Sunday 9th October where 40 players took to the field in glorious sunshine (True), with both Jindera teams bringing home the chocolates.

Jindera A defeated Corowa and Jindera B defeated Holbrook.

The two rounds following – on the 16th and 23rd October at Albury and Culcairn respectively – were cancelled due to weather and/or poor course conditions.

The inclement weather has also caused delays with our irrigation upgrade, with marking of the course, trenching and tank installation tasks being delayed. Hopefully as things dry out we will see some action soon.

The “9-Hole” Comp is still running in conjunction the normal 18-hole Sunday comp and provides a great opportunity for those looking for an entry level into competition golf. Ideal for juniors …

The Friday night “Chook Run” is now running on Daylight Savings times, with tee-offs between 4 and 5 pm.

Our “Closing Day” men’s and mixed 2 Ball Ambrose was held on Sunday 2nd October, with 34 players enjoying a great day. Thanks again to the ladies for their “First Class” catering and everyone who helped in getting the course great condition.
