Trentham Plate re-scheduled
Due to storms and heavy rain making the course and greens unplayable, the Trentham Plate that was to be held on Sunday November 13th unfortunately had to be cancelled. The Plate will now be rescheduled to Sunday January 15th. All those who entered are invited to return, and of course, we will be taking new entries. With the good rains this spring, we anticipate the course will still be in good condition in January.
So get together a team of four players (two men and two women), from any club or combination of clubs, to play for the Trentham Plate, a teams event with a history going back for more than 40 years. The team with the best aggregate score will win the plate for one year (three scores to count, fourth score to count in the event of a tie). There are also prizes on offer for the best individual Stableford score.
To enter, follow this link to the Tournaments website.
You can make an online entry (including multiple players or teams) and pay using Paypal, Visa, Mastercard and BSB.
New Committee elected
At the Annual General Meeting of the Trentham Golf Club, a new committee was elected for 2017. The committee is Bob Penrose (President), John Hudson (Captain), David Nugent (Treasurer), Russell Hanson (Secretary), and committee members Keith Webster, Doug Hartwig, Kevin Sheedy, Colin Wilson, Alex Evered and Terry South.
Thanks go to the retiring committee members--John Smithwick (President), Veronica Maher (Secretary), Alan Hopkins (Captain), Sue Byrne, Harold Moore and Alan Snowden--for their service, time, ideas and dedication.
The report and financials for the year were presented, and despite large expenditures on the club's water security project and the cart sheds, the club still made a profit of $7647. Membership fees remain the same as last year, at $475 for an adult, $150 for students and $50 for juniors. The joining fee has been removed for 2017.
The constitutional changes, including those that will allow the club to provide a wider selection of membership types, were passed unanimously.
Mazda Victorian 4BBB Championship, February 5th 2017
Each year, Trentham Golf Club hosts a qualifying event for the Mazda Victorian Four-Ball Championship. The Trentham qualifying event will be held on Sunday February 5th 2017. Entries are handled by Golf Victoria. To enter go to the Golf Victoria website.
Trentham is one of country Victoria’s most pleasant and beautiful golf courses, listed by Golf Australia magazine in 2014 as one of Australia’s best value-for-money courses. Trentham will be in pristine condition in November. At 5277 metres for men and 4925 metres for women, Trentham places a premium on accuracy rather than length, and will challenge any golfer while still providing hours of fun and enjoyment. The course is gently undulating, easy to walk, and is situated in the heart of the Spa country, close to the popular tourist towns of Trentham, Daylesford, Hepburn Springs and Kyneton.
