Hello to all,

Firstly, I would like to say congratulations to the new Shelly Beach Golf Club Board which was voted in at the recent AGM, with a warm welcome to our new President Malcolm Sheldon and director Susan Eastway. I must also say a huge thank you to the outgoing golf club president Allan Arkins for his service to the club year after year, his efforts over time in some difficult situations have been amazing. Not forgetting Bruce Cummins for his service as well.

Ok, getting on to the golf for November we have had some awesome golf been played with the course in absolutely fantastic condition, how good are all the areas around the greens?? That new mower is worth every cent.

On our stroke day our winner was the local club sparky Shane Quick with a 74 nett, then we had Graeme (rocky) Rochester on the par round at plus 6 followed by a super round of 44 points from Steve (sharkies have won a comp) Gray and finally one of our newer moaners Ian Perry took the bickies with another great score of 42 points.

I can’t believe that it’s December already, where has the year gone!!!! We have the golf club’s Champion of Champions on the 2nd , good luck to all those playing , then we have our annual ham day coming up on the 9th of the month which is always a fantastic day with plenty of players aiming to be the one that grabs a whole ham off the prize table. We also have Santa (small fat fella in a red suit) turn up to hand out some presents to our kids and grandkids and the unlucky naga of the day will receive the traditional can of SPAM.

I will take this opportunity to wish all club members a very merry Christmas and prosperous new year, with a special thanks to my other committee members for their continued work in running this great club called “The Moaners “. Oh and a special mention to the Sydney Rooster’s for making the year a WHOLE lot better with that memorable grand final victory. You heard it here first, they will go back to back!!!!!
