Dear Members,

Another eventful week. If you were on the course or passing on Tuesday or Wednesday you maybe forgiven for thinking we’ve started up a caravan park.  A group of 40 golf enthusiasts parked up their RV’s to play our course as the final game of their annual golf safari and to celebrate their 10th anniversary.  

A big thank you to Robbie for looking after the clubhouse Tuesday, Wednesday and covering for Surf when needed over the last few months. The club very much appreciated your help and wish you all the best in your retirement.

At this point I would like to welcome Brad who has joined the team to take on a similar role, so the club can continue operating 7 days per week.

Winter is fast approaching, maybe you would like a new club jersey, these are merino with a collar and half zip (picture attached) $80.00  if you would like to purchase one, please place your order with Surf a.s.a.p. 

The COURSE will be CLOSED on Tuesday, 2nd April for Spraying.

An UPDATED CLUB PROGRAMME has been sent out by email and is also on this website.
