EASTER TOURNAMENT WRAP UP
This years Easter Tournament was a great success with over 150 players from a number of different clubs competing each of the 4 days. On the Saturday we held our annual Easter Cup which comprises of a gross component. In the ladies section it was the reliable Helen Pascoe from Buningyong who had 77 gross to win by one shot over Beverley Park junior Abbey Bull. In the men’s section it was 16 year old Jeffrey Guan who shot an impressive 5 under par to win over Mark Corradin who had 3 over par. Jeffrey had 7 birdies in the first 10 holes and is a name to look out for in the future. Thank you to all the members and visitors who participated in the tournament and also to the committee members who volunteered their time to help the Pro Shop.

COURSE REPORT
Please keep carts further away from the greens. We would like carts to stay off the short cut grass around the green edges and to stay on cart paths when possible.We would like to thank the volunteers for their work cleaning up branches and cleaning distance markers on fairways and tees.Kikuyu is a big issue on the courses, spraying will start in the next two weeks.A gardener has started and slowly working through the gardens. There is lots to be done but we have taken the first step.
JUNIOR GOLF
We have had a few weeks break from the junior clinics but they will be set to return soon. During the break a couple of our juniors have been playing well. Kohen Haddrell won C Grade with 34 points on the Monday of the Easter Tournament. Kohen also played in Thursday comp this week and won with 38 points and even had his first birdie! Congratulations Kohen! Casey Chandler recently got the opportunity to play in a junior tournament at Metropolitan Golf Club. Although Casey didn’t play at her best it was an invaluable experience.
