After three months of review the committee have looked long and hard at how 100 Club is run. 100 club is one of the clubs successful fundraising events. The committee all agree that for 100 club to continue that the emphasis must be on having 100 entries. As no trophy is played for it is all about enjoyment and participation with plenty of prizes shared around.
The major changes for this years tournament will see
1) The ladies competing evenly in a combined mens and ladies divisons (seniors,intermediates and juniors) ie no separate ladies division (handicaps calculated as per nz golf rules)
2) The way the non golfing division and non playing golfers are included in the prizes made more equitable
3) That only those that have paid an entry fee may play. ie ticket holders cannot get someone to play the golf section for them.
If you would like more details on this please talk to one of the committee.
We will be starting to fill up any limited vacant spots in this event shortly. So if you would like a spot please contact Terry Johnson or Matthew McDonald.
The committee are committing to completing major works to the drainage in front of the 2nd,18th and 9th tees. We are scheduling this in for just after New Year before the club season starts again. Estimates are this is going to cost around 5-7 thousand. We are starting an internal give a little fund for this project. If you can help please or want more details please contact the Secretary/Treasurer.
We are also looking to rebuild the cart sheds and are in the process of obtaining quotes so we can ascertain what funding is required.
