Murmurings from Saturday 26th September 2020
Yes I'm back. A little jaded I must say. (Yeah we noticed -Ed)
I've said this before but when you play away, you realize what we have. Great to see the Westrupp ladies playing and the good comments about the course greatly appreciated. While the course was a little congested nobody seemed to mind.
Story: 1 group decided for giggles they would tee off #14 with driver (2 are single figure handicap, on a par 3). One was able to hit the pin and nearly hole, tap in 2. (What's he on about; I always use driver on No14 - Ed)
Mug Medal was the comp of the day.
Mug Winner: Chris McGeown won with a 5 hole putt off against Jimmy Lillington, nett 68.

You will recall that in June 2019 President Peter announced in his Newsletter that if any member of our club purchased a vehicle from Bowater Hyundai/Isuzu, either new or used, the club will benefit by $250.
Its all ticking along very nicely. Thank you to Bowater, and thank you too to Barrie Walker, Bernard Walsh and Lloyd Goodall who have all purchased vehicles.
