Trentham's much loved Life Member Jim McCormack died in hospital on Thursday March 21 at the age of 86. Jim was an absolute institution at Trentham after joining the club over 60 years ago. He was the longest-serving Trentham member.

Jim had many years as a committee member, and served on a number of occasions as President and Captain. He was the club handicapper in the days before GolfLink, diligently changing numbers on the handicap board after every event. He was the membership officer at the same time.

He will always be remembered for his gentlemanly nature, friendliness and his tireless work for the club. He was very generous, supporting many club projects and sponsoring events and trophies, especially for women.

Jim was still playing golf every Thursday and Saturday until this year, and even up to three weeks ago occupied what seemed like a permanent chair in the clubhouse ... helping on the finishing and starting desks for our competitions. We will miss his copperplate script on the trophy vouchers.

In 2022 Jim achieved his second hole-in-one (pictured), over 45 years after his first!

Jim was also a life member and former Captain of the Spring Hill CFA, for whom he served in a tireless capacity for many years. He sold his large property at Spring Hill, around the shores of the Coliban Reservoir, a few years ago, and while he moved to live in Kyneton he still travelled to Trentham for golf. He was also the last student to attend Spring Hill Primary School No.1906 before it closed in 1951.

His funeral was held on Wednesday April 3 at 1:30 pm in the Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church, Kyneton, followed by burial at the Kyneton Cemetery. CFA members and Trentham Golf Club members formed a guard of honour outside the church.
