Good turnout for working bee
A working bee at the course on Tuesday February 6th saw a good turnout. Some important tasks were completed and a few good ideas were generated for the future.
Jim Paul tidied up around each of the eighteen tees, Ron Winzer and Mike Hotchin again chased and removed blackberries, Kevin Sheedy single-handedly slashed the edges of the lake and the dam on the 13th hole, while Geoff Durham, Ian Cornthwaite and Harold Moore cleaned up around the first tee. Mike DeJong tamed the hedge along the clubhouse verandah, while Bob Penrose and David Head tackled the endless task of picking up sticks and bark between fairways. John Bell was also working all morning on the course as usual, and was available for advice.
The next working bee is scheduled for Tuesday February 27th at 9.00 a.m. There will be more working bees throughout 2018, so if you have a couple of hours to spare every month or so, please talk to Geoff Durham and volunteer.
Huge thanks to all the volunteers who have helped so far. The working bees have an excellent impact on the appearance of the course, making it even more attractive for members and green fee players.
