Can I first start by saying how honoured I am to be the Beerwah Golf Club Captain. This is my fourth club over 36 years and what a truly wonderful and friendly club it is to be involved with. Please come up and introduce yourself and I am happy to listen to any feedback good or bad. In relation to my Captaincy, my intention is to introduce a presentation on a Saturday and most Wednesday’s. At the conclusion of the Saturday presentation a lucky card will be drawn from that day’s field to win a carton of beer which must be collected the same afternoon. There will be no jackpots (thanks to Neil Head for the suggestion). I would love to see the members embrace presentations once again as this was what I think most of us were bought up with.
New rules will be introduced in 2019. Those members who may be confused with these rules can find a leaflet in the pro shop to help explain them. I also intend to arrange a rules information session between myself, the Ladies and Seniors Captains’ to assist in clarifying any confusion and answer any questions that may arise.
The only competitions played between the 22nd of December 2018 and the 5th of January 2019 will be on the 26th and the 29th. These competitions will what I like to term a floating comps where there is no blocked out time sheet and members will play in and amongst social players but will be playing in the competition. It is vital that the club takes advantage of the social play income at this time of year which is a big driver to keep our membership fees low. First full competition back will be on the 5th of January 2019 which will be Monthly Honours.
Lastly I would like to wish all the Members, Ladies, Juniors and staff a very merry Christmas and happy new year.
