Rutherglen Golf Club Ladies and Juniors
Warm weather has left our fields very small, for the two weeks of the Turkey and Chook Run, very warm last Wednesday, but a few soldiered on.
Next Wednesday, December 6 will be a Stableford, 8am for an 8.30am start, and anyone wishing to start earlier may do so.
The following Wednesday, December 13 is our break up event TBA, bring a lunch to share, it will also be the ladies presentation.
All our players of yesterday are very welcome, come along and renew old friendships, enjoy a chat and a laugh.
Our thoughts go out to those who are not well, we wish them well and hope you will be home for Christmas.
The Betty Fursdon Memorial Mixer was postponed on Sunday, December 3 and now will be played on December 10.
H. Eggleston was the winner of both Turkey and Chooks.
Have made it for another year, Juniors done and dusted for the 2017 season, played some holes, some good scores posted.
Not sure if the dads and grandparents were on track with the scoring, but had lots of fun.
The three boys received trophies, Paddy, Ryn and Joseph.
Ryn thought it may have been a good idea to take it for show and tell, but believe grandma put the foot down, spoil sport.
Until next year, we hope you grow a little, practice a little, and have a wonderful Christmas, not too many more sleeps until Santa comes, so you better be good.
Thanks again to the mums, dads, friends and grandparents who came along each week, on behalf of the juniors, Alf and myself we wish you all a happy and safe Christmas, be careful because we want to see you all again next year, Merry Christmas.
