Birthdays galore for ladies

There are birthdays galore in February amongst our lady golfers. Included on the list is Kay Freeth and Diana Slater the 5th, Marge Nicholls (the big 70th) the 8th, Glenda Davies 9th and Raelene (Raz) Foubister on the 22nd. Enjoy your special day, ladies!

Now for a blast from the past re lady volunteers in 2005 listed on the golf shop roster, being Maureen Heading, Jean Brown, Jenny Pollock, Jean Bosworth, Margaret Herbert, Beverley Shiell, Glenda Clayton, Colleen Howell, Audrey Discombe, Elaine Havelberg, Margaret Lewis, Annette Cotter, Carmel Dickeson, Julie Smith, Sue Woskowiak, Heather Prosser and Elsie Stewart. Incidentally, onle nine of those are still members of the club.

Maree and Martin Farr now have an addition to the family, a gorgeous little fluffy pooch. Poor Marty has toppled from the tree top now.

The 'old fella's' nine-hole golfers comp attracted the most players on Saturday this season for their competition. I'm sure the perfect weather conditions (after the atrocious previous hot days) was the ultimate attraction. Tony Jones won the stableford event and has been a steady competitor of  late.

Richard Dunn is still waiting to have a surgical procedure to his heart in Adelaide. The date keeps getting pushed forward and is now scheduled for late February. All good things come to those who wait. We have to remember we are a long way from Gepps Cross. It's not good for the wellbeing of the individual for this to occur!

Bob and I thought we were hearing things on Saturday evening when 'light' rain fell. It didn't last, however, but every little drop is most welcome. Our golf course is in dire need!

The Golf Bowling Club celebrated its 50th anniversary of late. A dinner was held at the golf club on Saturday night with team competitions played on the weekend. A celebration of any kind takes a lot of organising and it appears Rita Jones, a recent life member of the club, was a driving force in many aspects for the occasion. Rita didn't have control of the weather conditions, however, the cool days were most acceptable.

Members of the club and the general public should be made aware that the course manager closes the course on days of 40C and upwards be it competitive or social.
