Captains Report – 2018

Well another year of golf has gone by so quickly and even though we badly need the rain the dry weather has meant that we have been able to get in all our golfing this year.
Our Charity Day was a great success and it was pleasing to have so many ladies come to play on our lovely course. They were effusive in their praise of our course, club and the friendliness of the players. We managed to raise quite a bit of money for our two charities, the Wig Library and the Parkinson’s support group “the Shakers”.
I would like to thank all the Committee for their invaluable help this year in keeping things running smoothly and stepping up when needed.
Now down to business.
We managed to get all to rounds of the club championship in this year and would like to congratulate Aoauli Carrett in becoming our Gross Champion for 2018 and congratulations also to our Nett Champion, Pat Leach.
Our Foursomes Gross Champions were Pat Collier & Aoauli Carret and Nett Champions were Sonia Clarke and Robyn Bailey. Congratulations to all.
Our Matchplay Champion for this year was Liz Sikora.
We played our 2 round friendly against Callala in March for the WC Trophy and Worrigee Links was successful in bringing the toilet seat home.
I would also like to congratulate Sue Earle for her win in B Grade in the WGI Tournament for the GNSW Medal Playoff and I’m sure you will join me in wishing her luck in the State final in December.
I would like to thank my Vice-Captain Sue Earle for all her hard work in the week to week running of the club and for her work in organising the Pennants & Round Robin Competitions.
A HUGE thank you to Cath Pank for all the hard work she puts in as Secretary, we couldn’t function so successfully without her, and for her role in the WGI, I am sure we would not have secured the WGI 3-day Tournament next year if not for her. A heartfelt thank you to all the Committee, especially to our President, for making my job easier. As I am stepping down as Captain this year I would like to thank all our members for the support they have shown me over the last few years and I am sure they will continue to support the new Captain in the coming year. I have enjoyed playing golf with you all.
Also, thanks to Rob & Greg and the staff in the Pro shop for their assistance and Grassy & the ground staff for all their hard work. We are lucky to have such a great course in such good condition
considering the dry weather with have been experiencing.
Thank you,
Denise Johnson
