Housekeeping this week...*As from Monday 22 nd June, all of the tee markers will be left on the tees. This means that we ladies will need to be aware of which course we are playing on that day. If you are unsure, the scorecard we are given is marked either a "Red" or a "White" card. So we all need to be mindful of this when teeing off. This change to our regular practice ensures that the course is set up appropriately for when different competitions are being played on the same day, or on different days of the weekend.
Today we will be playing Mid Week Brooch, sponsored by the Warwick Golf Club. A Stroke round, played in Two Divisions. Saturday will see the Quarter final of the Semi Finals of the 4BBB Handicap Matchplay, while those not involved in this event will play a Single Stableford, Kindly Sponsored by The Oak Tree Retirement Village. Such a beautiful place to live, right down there beside the beautiful Condamine River. Sunday will see the Finals of the 4BBB Match Play Championships, this event being sponsored by Michelle Wright, From Michelle’s Wright-At-Home Hair Studio. 4 tough rounds, and Sunday will see the eventual winners.
But on a very sad note, we were all sorry to hear of the sudden passing of our very popular long term member Ken Burley. Ken and his lovely wife Marge have been members of our club for many years, with Ken only playing last Wednesday in his usual Sporters club round. Ken unfortunately suffered a heart attack on Sunday Morning, at his home. Ken was the patron of the Sporters club, and he with his good wife Marge, are absolute legends and the ultimate role models to all of us at the Golf club. It was Ken who always organized his band of merry workers to help us out every year raking our bunkers for the Ladies Open Day. Something that we are now well known and quite famous in our district for. Our thoughts and prayers are with Marge and her family at this very sad time. Until next week, stay happy and have fun chasing that little white ball all over the beautiful Warwick golf course.
