FEBRUARY 2017

Welcome back ladies to the 2017 season, and may the golfing gods give us all, confidence and clarity to play great golf this year!

Opening Day was a great success fielding 92 players, with Wendy White, Carol Hartwell and Fran Slade winning their divisions. Refreshments at Presentation were most appreciated in the form of good old fashioned Pimms and lemonade decorated with various fruits (so you see, a health drink!), accompanied by cup cakes.
Jo Edwards from Edwards Butchers presented the prizes for the hotly contested Summer Cup, congratulations to Lyn McMurray claiming 1st prize, followed by El Presidente Donna, Caro Roope, Ann Meyn, Ann Radford and Heather Burrett. Well played ‘lovely’ ladies.

Also on the day, Vets President Lorraine presented gifts to Pat Myles and Life Member Irene Quintrell on attaining the status of octogenarians. Pat is still playing a very handy game of golf, often up on the winners podium. Patsy had a few extremely amusing words to say about Irene and herself in earlier times – great to hear.

Jan Monty was presented with a badge for a Hole-in-One, which she achieved on a Sunday – ‘goodonya’ Jan.img_2530

I’m sure we are all aware by now of the very exciting 60 years of Everglades celebrations coming up in early March, culminating in a cocktail party after the Men’s vs Women’s mixed event on Sunday 12th with a shotgun start at 8.30. Both committees encourage participation in the day, it will be great fun for all. Our women’s events on Tuesday 7th and Thursday 9th will be a combined 2B aggregate, (with a hope there will be quite a few golfing outfits of the fifties and sixties striding the fairways on the Thursday!)

The CCWGA Opening Day was held at Everglades on the 20th, the course was in great condition, as was noted by many players from other district clubs. The Stableford event with 2 scores to count was happily won by a home team – Gwen Gray, Ann Meyn, Jan Patterson and Cathy Yu with a score of 83.img_3085

On a very sad note, Murrell Jarvis passed away on February 8th. Murrell will be very much missed by all of us.💐

 

 

 

Good golfing, and, as a dj on Sydney radio used to say – ‘be kind to each other’.

October 2016

Hi Ladies,
Apart from the eagerly anticipated Vets Closing Day on the 25th, October is the month we start to wind down all the ‘serious’ games, and look forward to team events such as the very worthy Pink Ribbon Day, so even if you don’t have an ounce of pink in the wardrobe, please at least give a nod to the day with some token of pink, – you never know, it may be your colour!
Earlier in the month the Medal of Medals for the medal winners over 7 rounds during the year was played within a stroke round, with Pat Myles emerging as the ultimate winner on the day. Pat will be presented with her trophy at our Presentation Day on December 1st. The winners in the event of the day were Denise Dickson Div 1, Jan Weiley Div 2, and this is Jan’s first medal, and Pat Myles for Div3.

 

Captains vs Presidents Day – what a day for the Reds. After a drought of four years, the Presidents team romped home with a resounding well deserved win, most satisfying for President Jan in her final event as president- there was joy in the land! Congratulations to all who participated, it’s always a fun day.img_2677

 

The new committee for 2017 was finalised at this years AGM held on October 20th. Leslie Wells and Margaret Hockley stepped down after great service and dedication to our committee. Our new President Donna, welcomed Sharon Smith into the Secretary’s chair, and Lorraine Linnert, who will be fulfilling the role of Vice President and the Vets Delegate.

In view that the wind seems to have been blowing incessantly for months – remember when you’re out there on the fairway’- if it’s breezy, swing it easy’….

MARCH 2016

Welcome ladies to this months blog –

March began with the 2nd round of the singles KO, and now we are at the pointy end with two players left to provide an outcome on Tuesday 22nd. Play well Bobbi Moran and Pat Myles.

Bendigo Bank March Club Medal – Congratulations to Donna Mitchell in Div 1, Maureen Muncey in Div 2 and Pat Myles in Div 3 for being winners on the day. image

No it’s not the Bobbsy twins – Donna’s the one with the tan, on the right!

 

 

 

Sweltering through an unseasonably hot March, our ladies looked resplendent in this years new shirts for Club Day. Congrats to the winners on the day – Patsy Elliott in Div 1, Heather Burrett in Div 2 and Rhonda Wright (one of our newer ladies) in Div 3.

The Pennant teams for this year have now been decided, with the first matches to be played on April 4.  The CCWGA has embarked on a new format in the hope of making it a more level playing field, (or should that be fairway?) There are two teams, each with a combined handicap of no less than 130, so every grade is included. Good luck and good golf to all our players – bring it home girls!

Invitation/Open Day is on Tuesday 12th April so do invite your golfing friends from other clubs to join us on the day.

Enjoy your friends, and your golf…. always.

January 2016

2016, and ready for another year of great golf and good friendships.

Just a bit of housekeeping before the year begins –

Everglades Country Club Merit Awards were presented last year to Donna Mitchell and Heather Burrett for their 10 (or more) years of service. Congratulations to both women for this well deserved award.

 

Registration Day on Feb 2. Your compulsory costs will be $27, if you wish to be eligible for the 3 optional competitions – Goodwill Plate, Golf NSW Medal and the Shootout, your total cost will be $37, and you are urged to take a $20 raffle book to sell tickets for our charity raffle. The full list and explanation of all the payments are in the locker room.

Opening Day & presentation of the Summer Cup on Feb 4. A Stableford team event with 3 scores to count, so get your team organised – maybe wardrobe coordination between the 4!

A reminder that each player will be now responsible for the recording of their own ‘gobblers’ each round. There will be a sheet up in the locker room all year for this purpose.

There is a new format for District Pennants this year, the explanation of this is also on the notice board in the locker room.

CCWGA District Open Day, Monday 22 Feb at Gosford GC.  A Stableford team event, so get a team together and support our District.

Housekeeping done…
