Latest News2019 NEWSLETTER NO 1
To all members of NALG-NSW
Long Reef February 7th
34 players teed-off from 12.00noon last Thursday in our first event for 2019. Conditions were warm and sunny and the course in very good order which was reflected in the scores.
It was good to see some new faces particularly as a result of Craig McHatton’s efforts on social media.
The committee met prior to tee-off to finalise the 2019 calendar and discuss options to help contain the cost of playing expensive courses and retain and gain membership.
It was agreed that members who play a minimum of 4 events during the year, to acknowledge their support, will receive a discount for the Christmas event each year.
The cost of this will come from funds in reserve in the NALG Bank account and not through event subsidisation. The funds in NALG term deposit and the interest accrued through the course of this year will more than likely cover this cost.
In addition, we will continue our social media activity with the view to increasing membership and participation at events. The more participants we have the easier it is to negotiate green fees.
Prize winners for the day were;
Lefties Winner Peter Golding 40 points
Runner-up Craig McHatton 37
Righties Winner Anthony Malakou 41
Runner-up Tyrone Hyde 40
2Ball Winners Blake Aroney and Peter Aroney 46 c/b
