May Update

The weather continues to be kind to us in terms of providing the ideal environment for growing grass, with the course in tiptop condition thanks to our dedicated and hardworking grounds committee.

Our trustee fairway mower however is not travelling all that well and … has died. This has left us in a bit of a dilemma, having to scramble to raise funds for a replacement – a new Kubota 72” cut diesel mower has now been ordered, at a cost of around $23,000.00 (ouch! I hear you say)

Fortunately we have been successful in securing a grant of $10,000.00 from “Golf NSW” and are also currently running a raffle to help cover the balance.

Tickets $5.00 each – 1st prize $500.00 IGA vouchers, 2nd $250.00 butcher, 3rd $100.00 vet clinic.

Draw late June, tickets are available at most businesses in Jindera, and all support is greatly appreciated.

Junior Golf

Jindera golf club hosted a round of the Golf NSW “Juniors On The Move” tournament on Sunday 16th May. This is a great initiative organised by Cade Webb of Golf NSW and the Murray Districts Golf Association (MDGA).

There were around 20 juniors from the district competing at various levels and a great day was had by all.

Congratulations to our own Bonnie McMillan for taking out the girls longest drive.

Cameron Odewahn (Accredited Coach) ran a coaching clinic for around 12 local kids leading up to the event and we are hopeful of providing more clinics further down the track.
