Hello again members.
This month’s newsletter comes hot on the heels of yet another highly acclaimed tournament. This time the Queanbeyan Golf Club Ladbrokes Pro-Am.
Jake has plenty of detail in his column, regarding the sponsors, supporters and results of this fantastic 2-day event, however I would like to take a few minutes to give ourselves a big pat on the back. And by ourselves, I mean, ALL OF US!!
The members, volunteers, staff, committee members and contractors, put in a massive combined effort to keep our wonderful golf course and club at the pointy end of golf clubs in this region.
In the last month or so, there have been over 200 professional golfers play our course, and to a man and woman, everybody has been gob smacked at the quality of Queanbeyan Golf Club, both on and off the course. My inbox is full of thank you emails from the ladies of the European Tour, and from the lads who played here this week in the Pro-Am.
Members should be justifiably proud of our club, and the position we now hold amongst our peers. (It is not a coincidence that the number of visiting golfers from our better known “interstate cousins” has increased now that the word has got out!)
Along with our new found profile, comes the responsibility to match or better, the amenities and services that our competitors offer. In short, we need to “keep ahead of the game”! That is why the club has chosen ClubCar to supply us with six new state of the art Lithium Ion electric carts. These were delivered a few weeks ago, and we are only the third club in Australia to take delivery of this latest model. So book yourself a drive, to see what all the fuss is about!!!
The club is also in the initial stages of remodeling our tee signage. (Most of you will agree that our current offerings are well past their prime!) We have engaged a brilliant young company, to create our new course signage, and we are very excited to see how our concepts work out. To give you a sneak peak, their portfolio can be viewed at https://www.aconcept4.com.au/tee-signs
Any members who wish to have their business promoted on our new signs, are urged to contact me at your earliest possible opportunity, to avoid disappointment. There are only 18 chances available, so get in early.
Have a very happy and safe Easter everyone.
Also looking forward to seeing you on the steps of the Australian War Memorial at dawn on ANZAC Day. Lest We Forget.
As always ….. may the breeze be at your back, and every putt be your last!!!
