Course to Re-Open Thursday

Yesterday’s wind has worked wonders and dried most of the surface water.

I have just been informed that the course will re-open Thursday with all 18 holes in play and motorised carts available.

30cm preferred lies in the general sections of the course (fairways and rough).

When playing the 6th hole please cross Hyams Creek using the bridge on the 8th hole. Be very aware of tee shots from the 8th.

Be part of the Jamberoo Spirit.

By Col Booth.

At the heart of the community we serve, Jamberoo Golf Club is a welcoming, friendly, and inclusive club serving the interests and needs of its members and of the Jamberoo community.

Jamberoo Golf Club is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers and embraces its village golf heritage. A rare find today!

Enjoy the views from the shaded verandah where visitors, local residents and members are astounded by the picturesque visage as they enjoy a chat and a refreshing drink.

Get involved, enjoy the company of your fellow members, and support your club. These are all aspects of the Jamberoo spirit.

I am often amused after playing an enjoyable 18 holes, and finding your partners’ balls several times, many members leave immediately, even if they do drink, missing an opportunity to sit and relax with your team on the day.  Surely 15 minutes after your game isn’t too much extra time. No reason to get into a ‘shout’.

A lot of people think if you venture onto the verandah you have to drink alcohol. 

The Verandah is for socialising with other club members, getting to know new members etc.

The loss of the Bridge over Hyams Creek on the 6th.

We will have to divert around the ‘immovable obstruction’, but this is not big a deal. I agree bridges will have to be higher and perhaps renamed after the bridges in Venice along the Grand Canal, ie. Rialto, to add to the joy of playing Jamberoo with its heritage theme.

Course Update

The course will be closed for the entire week.

Competition Update

Rounds 1 and 2 of the Women’s Championship has been postponed. The Women’s Match committee will make a decision Tuesday as to when they will be played. 

The postponed Mens April Monthly Medal to be played Saturday June 15 if the course is available.

Vets Championship postponed to June 24.

A chance to get involved.

Rain Event Closes Course

With 216 mm of torrential rain overnight the River and Creek have again broken their banks and flooded the course.

The course will be closed for the entire long weekend.

It is also necessary to postpone the Members Volunteer Recognition BBQ which was set for Monday due to safety concerns with the access to the course.

The recognition of our many volunteers and donors is of utmost importance and this event will be held in the near future.

It is a difficult time for the club with the constant bad weather affecting play. Many courses in the district are having the same issues.

We will endure.
