Congratulations to Denise F and Denise M Culpitt who represented Banora at the Keno District Ladies Qualifier. The Culpitt Sisters In Law came in with a creditable +3. Our other team of Penny Martlew and Pat Hodda tried hard and came in with -3. Although neither qualifying both teams played very well.
Following Board deliberation, the Golf Section is advised that Golf Membership will be $350 effective from 1 October 2017.
The new membership fee reflects the Golf Management Committees’ request to increase the golf club component by $5 (to cover increased affiliation fees to Golf NSW and Golf Australia). It also contains a Twin Towns component consistent with the movement in golf playing costs in our immediate district.
Veterans Golf Membership also increases by $5 to $20 on 1 October. The new fee is due to the 2017 increase in veterans’ district and NSW veterans’ affiliation fees – the first increase in a decade.
From 1 January 2018 green fees will increase by 50 cents. The competition fee remains unchanged at $3.50.
Members will continue to play socially after 3 pm, free of green fee.
Golf at Club Banora continues to be very affordable due to support from community development funding, the Twin Towns December internal clubs one-off grant and strong membership support for golf club fund raisers.
