Meet the Members!
Rossdale has always been regarded as Melbourne’s friendliest golf club. We think that’s because Rossdale has the best members. As such, we thought we would take the time in the coming weeks to introduce all our new members to the wonderful characters and long-standing playing groups that make this club such a vibrant place.
I would personally like to take the time to thank Phil O’Gorman for this fantastic idea. Great work mate! Next week we will start with the Thursday morning “skins” group.
We encourage all are members to actively engage with these social groups to get the most out of their membership.
Thursday Skins Group
The Thursday morning skins group has a regular couple of bookings on a Thursday morning at 9.48am.
This group is open to anyone who just wants to turn up, no bookings are needed! Be here by 9.30am when they randomly select groups for the day and play the competition of the day.
After the round the group heads to the deck to have a drink. At this time each player puts in $1.00 and the winner(s) divide this pool. After that they put in 20c a hole and then go through the cards and divide up the pool by who wins the “skins”. The most it will ever cost you is $4.60 and you never know you may make a profit on the day!
The 2019 Captain’s Night will be held in conjunction with the 70th anniversary of the Rossdale Golf Club on Saturday the 21st of September. The night will include a range of entertainment including a ten piece New Orleans jazz band, canapes, two courses and an unlimited drinks package, all of which will tie in with the night’s 1920s underground speakeasy theme. We hope to see you there. It sure will be a fantastic evening celebrating both the captain and the proud history of the club.
This event is booking out fast!!! Please remember that 5 & 6 day members can play in the competition on Saturday the 21st of September free of charge if they are attending the night.

Well done to Club President and Men’s Pennant stalwart, Geoff Charnley, for winning the Rossdale Cup in dramatic fashion over Jason Ling. The match was a see-sawing affair for the majority of the day, before Charnley turned it on late to win the prestigious board event 2&1.
Well done to all those who competed. We hope you enjoyed the chance to play competitive match-play!
