Hi reader,

The "Putt for Cash" fundraiser for All Abilities Golf kicked off on Saturday, 27th February 2016, and will continue through to the final putt off on the practice putting green in front of the club house on Saturday, 19th March 2016.  See Flyer below.

This week we start our 2016 Greens Renovation Program with scarifying of greens.  On 7th and 8th March of the following week the greens will be hollow cored, sanded and fertilised.  If you play golf over this period please exercise a little patience and wherever possible avoid disrupting green keepers as they carry out this work.  There will be some temporary inconvenience to play but the greens will be better for it.

As an incentive to increase visitor rounds we have reduced the visitor fee to play in our 18 Hole competitions (excluding Coopers Challenge) to $20.00 - a very attractive rate.   The visitor must have an official GA handicap.  Booking in advance to play in a competition is essential.  

Our next Saturday Happy Hour and members draw will take place on 5th March 2016.  Stay a while after golf or just drop in for the draw.

Greens staff report increasing occurrences of motorised carts being driven though the Green Keepers Work Compound.  For safety and security reasons this area is off limits to golf cart traffic and persons other than greens staff.  Please use the gate at the other end of the cart sheds to enter or exit the course. 

Cheers

Wayne Patston - General Manager
Cooroy Golf Club
