We should see a change to our rough in the coming weeks as it grows with warmer weather. An opportunity arose for us to replace our tiring fairway mower following an offer from the Launceston Golf Club. This offer was too good to turn down and we have agreed to purchase the mower from them. It is expected within 2-3 weeks when their new Kubota fairway mower arrives.

I am very pleased to advise that after a request from the committee Terry Jordan has agreed to assist with the Captain’s roll for the coming season. I stress to you that he is going to assist the committee and is not to be troubled by day to day situations. Terry will assist when his personal commitments permit. Any questions should be put to either Richard Landherr or me.

A big disappointment for the Club is the seemingly apathetic attitude towards the Men’s Club Championships with a very poor sign up to compete.
