Trentham course architect passes away

Vale Kevin Hartley

Kevin Hartley, who as a course architect developed the "Hartley Plan" that was the impetus for Trentham's wide-ranging course improvements from 1996 onwards, has died. Over a period of nearly two decades, Kevin developed designs for all 18 of Trentham's greens, as well as the new 2nd, 3rd and 16th holes.

Known as ‘The Dart’ for his accuracy on the course, Hartley was one of Australia’s finest amateur golfers. He won the 1958 Australian Amateur Championship and the 1969 Victorian Amateur Championship. He also represented Australia in four Eisenhower Cups from 1964-1970, including winning the 1966 Eisenhower Cup in Mexico. He won the Ivo Whitton Trophy for scoring averages an unprecedented 12 times and the Riversdale Cup 10 times. Hartley captained the Victorian state team thirteen times, was the leading amateur at three Australian Opens.

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.
