From The Clubhouse

Another excellent and informative Newsletter to Members from our President, Jim Rule, can be downloaded here. The piece on proposed changes to the course, and Member involvement in same, is particularly noteworthy. The letter also opens with sad news about long time Member Kevin Kirk who passed away recently.

2017 Matchplay Champion

On a brighter note, we do have at last a winner of the 2017 Matchplay competition. John Solomos is our new matchplay Champion, having defeated Brian Depree 4 & 2 in the long awaited final. Congratulations to John, and commiserations to Brian - who could justifiably claim to be a bit short of 'Match' practice, having reached the final with successive forfeits since round two in July!

Fairbairn Open 2017

Going back a little further, the Weekend 4-5 November once again saw an eminently successful and enjoyable Fairbairn Open, made even more thrilling by such a close finish. The course was, as usual, in tip-top condition for this marquee event of the year and our thanks go to the incredibly hard working staff and folks who went 'above and beyond' to make it happen.

Congratulations to all who participated, but particularly to this year's Fairbairn Open winner David Howard from Belconnen Magpies, seen here being presented with prizes and trophies by Air Marshall Leo Davies, AO, CSC, Chief of Air Force (also representing CDF).

 

David was kind enough to send an Email after the event saying how much he'd enjoyed our little gem of a course.

AGM

The 26th of August saw another successful AGM. Well done to those who made the effort to attend and take an interest in Club affairs. Particularly well done to those who 'Went The Extra Mile' and volunteered to help run the Club through joining (or remaining on!) the Club Committee.
