I am not having much luck with the weather so far. Keeps blowing a gale, and there was a threat of a good thunderstorm, which thankfully went around us. Let’s hope the final round will fare better next week.

The rundown of the Championship are posted on the notice board also Monthly Medal next week. I can’t tell you anything more about the points system being introduced as an up to date version has been posted by the President, both on the blog and newsletter. For those who are still in the running for the Championship. Good golfing and good luck.🍀

Developments Since the Mid-Year Update

Points for Prizes

Twin Towns is migrating internal clubs away from paper vouchers.  The Committee has asked Twin Towns to allow the Golf Club to use the Points system for Golf Club competition and raffle prizes commencing from 1 January 2019.

By then Members Advantage Kiosks in all Clubs will allow golfers to view their Points balance and see their past 30 days transactions including their golf prizes.  The Captains will provide the detail of how the transition relates to their competitions and raffles.  Thank you to our Treasurer for his considerable effort to ensure that the best solution is achieved for golf members.

Membership Fees

The Twin Towns Board has approved new annual membership fees of $370 allowing the Golf Club component to increase to $70.  Daily playing fees will also increase by 50 cents.

Golf Membership Contracts

Twin Towns advise that Golf Membership Contracts will be outsourced to reduce the work of the Club’s finance section.  Golfers will incur an administrative fee of $40 in the first instalment and a percentage charge of the annual fee, about another $40.

Green Renovations

Due to growth conditions, the green renovations are now scheduled for 22 to 25 October.

A paper version of the Mid-Year updated and these recent developments will be provided in the Pro Shop and Island House for golfers who do not access Club blogs.

Sunday 23rd September 2018

A summers day with a small breeze greeted the Irish ☘️ teams that participated in this event. Some wore just a touch of green, while others went the whole way, with all sorts of paraphernalia. The trophy donors Barry, June Olga and Ray looked really good, but the winners of the green team were Ken and Judy, Pat and Colin. Ken wore a green pork pie hat, green bow tie, terrible green mustache,  green shirt and trousers and worst of all were the green bumble bee stockings, with a pair of thongs. A really good day was had by all members, reminded me of the days we used to have skits. Thanks Rosie, but I heard the Beefeaters are coming to put you in the tower for using the Queens picture for your green theme. Well done
