The service held at the golf club to celebrate the life of our life member John Lewis was a true tribute to his committment to the club and Whyalla in general for the clubroom was packed. 

Many readers would not realise that our local milk supply years ago was from the dairy situated just out of town off the Port Augusta Road and milk came in half-pint and pint glass bottles delivered early each morning by the milk man. Utes were used with stacked shelves in the trays and one could hear the rattling bottles from afar. A 'runner' was used by the milk man, namely high school boys who would have to rise early and do the 'run' from approx 4.30-7.30 then front up for school (good pocket money though). Noel Goldsworthy was one such 'runner' who worked for John Lewis that formed a special friendship over the years. 

From Jan 1, several rule changes will come into being. Most simplify the game and speed the 'tempo' up a bit. Golfers will be given a copy of changes. For more info view videos at
