Captains Log
Men's Captain- John Troutbeck
The 2016 golfing year is well underway now. Despite a clash with Pennants, Opening day went off well with a lot more people than was expected.

We welcome a number of new full members;

·John Staples
·Howard Wynyard
·Greg Edge
·Fraser Bayley
·Te Amohau Atutahi
·Adam Quigley

Plus a number of summer and junior members.
I’m sure you will be made to feel very welcome in our club; please make yourself known to me when the opportunity arises.

Don’t forget our working bee this coming Sunday. (We will be having four working bees through the year.) They are a good opportunity to meet other members socially, and to get a lot of those small jobs done in one hit.  See you there.

We have a great club with the course  playing well despite the dry. The cored greens
should bounce back quickly after recent rain.

See you on the course.

Ladies Club Captain- Barb O'Regan
We had a good field on our opening day, 37 played 9 holes, then had lunch.
We had two life members there Olwyn Fallwell and Anne Waters. It was great to see them both.
We had a new member come along and start playing with our Wednesday ladies and we welcome any ladies to come up on a Wednesday.
Our Saturday Ladies started on the 20th, so hope they are going to have a good year also.
Good Golf For 2016
Barb O'Regan

Scramble Credits and New Vouchers
As many of our members are now aware we have gone away from our credit system for your scramble winnings.
One of the biggest reasons why we have changed our system.
-We couldn't hold such a big liability on our books. If everyone wanted to withdraw their credits at one time, we wouldn't be able to do it. (As said by our reviewer of our accounts)
We have gone to a voucher system which many other clubs are doing.
If you win any money in a scramble now, you will be printed out a voucher that can be used in our golf club.
Examples of what your voucher can buy:
-anything at the bar
-anything in the shop
-you can put it on your subs
-you can enter one of our tournaments or scrambles
-you can buy anything though our tills that we have to sell.
-I can order in golf shoes, clubs, rain jackets, anything golf related.
There is lots you can buy with these.
Two catches, there is a expire date.
It's 6 months from when it was issued or used last 
You also can't get any change with your Voucher, there will be another voucher that will print with whats left.
If anyone has any questions at all please come up and talk to me or ring me. 
I hope everyone enjoys their vouchers. 

Driving Range and Carts
Its hot or wet or your tired and you want to get around in quickly. Remember we have carts and its only $20 for 18 holes for our members.
We have them so you might as well use them.
Ring in to book a cart before your round or you might miss out.
Our Livingstone Driving range looks great with its new signage and its so cheap for all our members. $4 for 40 balls or $10 for 120 balls.
We have heaps of good mats and heaps of tees down there. It's ready for you to improve your golf.

If you haven't entered the 2016 shootout, get in and pay your $20 now. Start entering those rounds. We have got a really solid leader board for the Men. You have until the last week of November to put 3 amazing Nett scores in.
Get in to the top 19 today. 

Centenary Foursomes
The 2016 Centenary Foursomes Draw is now up, please take a moment to look at
it, see who you are playing and when the first round has to be played by and also contact your opponents to discuss anyone being away or tied up with other golfing commitments or whatever and make a tentative date to play.   Also can you please pay the $15 entry fee
per couple BEFORE the first match.
