Tuesday Tome 8th November 2022

The course is looking stunning today and a number of Grumpies are out enjoying the fine weather.

Can I please remind those of you who won trophies last year to return them asap as they need to be engraved before Closing Day.

This Saturday is the final chance to get into the Shoot Out Final which will be played on Sunday 27th November.

On Sunday we are hosting Royal Wellington to contest the Bidwill/Leckie Cup – the course will be closed from 11.30am so if you intend to play in the morning you will need to be off the course by then.

Thursday 17th November it is our Murray Halberg Day – if you intend playing you will need to have your card in by 11.30am for a 12.00pm tee off.  Entry is $20.

Saturday 19th November we have the 36 Hole Mixed 4Somes – there are still places available so find yourself a partner and enter with the office.

On to results from last week:  Grumpies played a Stableford round with Tony Taylor winning with 39 points, Trevor Petersen, Griff Page and Chris Handley all had 38 points.  Twos went to Wayne Phelps, Ed Brown, Malcolm Wood and Paul Harris.
