Working for course improvements

Professionals and volunteers alike worked hard on course improvements on Tuesday December 4.

The club contracted local firm PM Tree Lopping and Stump Removal  to work their way around the course and grind out over 40 stumps. Not only will this make rough mowing less hazardous for the grounds staff and less likely to damage mowers, it will greatly improve the beauty of the course.

Professionals removing one of more than 40 stumps from along fairways and in the rough.

In addition, six volunteer members -- Mike Hotchin, Neil Aplin, Ross Fletcher, Ian Cornthwaite, Ron Winzer and Geoff Durham -- worked hard on course beautification. Their first task was to tidy up the front gateway and along the road in both directions, removing low and dead branches and also some ivy with stems half as thick as an arm climbing up some eucalypts. They removed thistles in the felled pine areas and, at the greenkeeper's request, a start was made tidying up trees and bushes behind the 17th green.

These volunteers are doing a terrific job and making a real difference to the appearance and neatness of the course. Assistance is always appreciated, and if you wish to help on future working bees, please pass your e-mail address to Geoff Durham so that you can receive info on the next one.

Monday Muggers

The Monday Muggers is a group of club members that play social golf on most Mondays throughout the year at the club, followed by a barbeque. Players assemble at 9.00 am for a 9.30 am 'multi-tee' hit-off. Friends and visitors (including occasional golfers) are welcome.

Trentham Travellers

The Monday Muggers sometimes organise visits to other golf clubs, and they become known as the Trentham Travellers. They may organise day trips to nearby clubs, or 2-3 day trips to more distant locations e.g. the Murray River. The feature is good golf with friends and a welcoming social atmosphere. If you are interested in these visits, please contact Dick Ellis or Harold Moore.
