Rossdale Ladies Garden Party

Hello ladies and welcome back to club golf. It is so wonderful to see the many new and old faces gradually making their way back to the course and clubrooms.  

Because we have missed so many social functions this year the ladies committee have decided on a big soiree to try to make up for some lost party time.  So, with much fanfare the ladies are pleased to announce that a garden party will be held on the Rossdale grounds (rotunda) on Monday 14th December.  

The theme “dress to impress” will incorporate our trophy presentations, the ladies’ luncheon and Xmas breakup all in one big bash.  There will be no spin table or K.K. this year, but our fundraising for the Salvation Army will go ahead. 

We hope that a major raffle for some fundraising, along with some party games will make for a great gathering for past, present and future ladies.  

Stay tuned as more details will be revealed leading up to the 14th of December. 

For those new members the Salvation Army gift donations can be passed on to a committee member or left in the baskets provided in the ladies’ locker room.  Gifts can include food, toys, pamper products or books. Please note- no second-hand goods.


Christmas Parma Night!

Book in now for one of the biggest nights of the year- the Christmas Parma night on the 17th of December. 

Book for either a 5.30pm or 7.30pm sitting. Santa will be making an appearance at 6pm with some treats for the kids. 


Junior Pennant

JUNIOR PENNANT 

15th November.

Hi all and what a difference a week makes. Unfortunately, our great scores last week were too little effect as Golf Victoria informed us that our round 1 was a bye. Still, a great effort.

This week was again a mad rush. From our starting 9 from week 1 we had 3 unavailable due to travel (where’s lockdown when you need it) and 1 due to exams. Fortunately, due to the negotiating skills of Ben, we managed to scratch up a 6 to compete. Special thanks to Brady Pollard who consented to have his score included for the team.

So, the team went out and, again, played in a spirit which is a credit to Rossdale and though it was a tough and windy day some good scores were returned. These are as follows:

Toby Colleridge-36 (if he keeps beating his dad every week things could get interesting)

Jack Illott-28

Connor Oldham-21

Toby Hynes-32

Justin Davies-19

Brady Pollard-36

Again, thanks to all the staff who are making every effort to help me and the group, to the members who are showing great interest and consideration for our young team and a special thanks to Fred Ford and John Turner who gave up their afternoon to watch and aid the team throughout the round.

I hope things get a little calmer next round and I thank you all again.

Ladies 2 Ball Ambrose 25th November

The draw has been created for the 2 ball Ambrose this Wednesday. You are now able to access to see what time you are playing.

We ask that if you are unable to play or would like a game please contact the Pro Shop and they will make the changes.


Course Works

This week the trees got root pruned. Over the years as the trees grow upwards their roots grow outwards sucking moisture out of the fairway. The root pruning machine drives along the edge of the fairway and cuts down to 25cm and cuts all roots in its way. 


Volunteers

This week we had the help of 5 volunteers who helped replaced turf in front of the 11th tee and roll out some turf on the new nursery behind the long range.

If you would like to help out on course, please let the Pro Shop team know and they will pass on your details.


Men’s Foursomes

Entries are now open online for the Men’s Foursome Championship. The Championship is played over 36 holes on Saturday the 5th of December and is open to everyone with a handicap of 12 or below. The competition of the day for all other members will be a foursome competition.
