Captain's noticeboard

Current local rules

Preferred lies

Due to the recent heavy rains, the club has introduced a temporary preferred lies rule until further notice. Players may lift, clean and place their ball within one card length of its original position on closely mown surfaces.

Temporary Local Rule for Abnormal Ground Conditions

The following areas of the course are ground under repair. The player must take relief under Rule 16-1.

  1. All trench works in the general area.
  2. Leaf and stick piles that have been raked up
  3. Burnt ash piles
  4. Old pine plantations marked with white stakes

A note on cart hire

If members or visitors wish to hire a cart during competitions, you must arrange this with Karen or Larissa in the Birdie Kitchen. Please do not just take a cart, it may be already hired by other members or visitors


We are always in need of additional volunteers for starting fields and serving in the bar. If there are any members not rostered who would like to help by offering their services, please contact Dick Ellis (Thursday starters) or John Hudson (Saturday starters).

Starter Rosters

Thank you for volunteering. If you cannot attend on your rostered day please arrange a change with someone else listed, or contact Dick Ellis (Thursday roster) or John Hudson (Saturday roster).

Starting involves collecting and recording competition fees and assembling and despatching playing groups.

Starters are now allocated to two "shifts". You can choose to do the early or late shift, or both if you prefer. Hit-off times are 10.00 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Please aim to be at the clubhouse some time before your "shift" starts. To avoid being "stranded" at the end, arrange for someone to join you for a late hit-off.

 Golf Fore a Cause

Events at Trentham may be included in the Western Open "Golf Fore a Cause" competition operated and supported by Drummond Golf Niddrie. Proceeds go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

Entry costs an extra $5 over the normal club competition fee, and there is $1500 worth of prizes available each month, including $500 for the best score.
