The trees have claimed another victim. Rob Maclean left his partner in a bit of a predicament in last Saturday’s American Foursomes on the 6th hole.

Please sign your card and return it to the box after your round.

After your round please ensure both you and your scorer sign the card and place it in the box.

Failure to do so leads to the sad occurence of a disqualification.

Don’t let this happen to you as it did on Monday to one of our players. Nobody takes joy when this simple rule is not followed.

Pennant News – 25 February

Mens Sunday Pennants – 25 February.

by team Captains, Shane Townsend, Larry Kent and Chris Leckey.

Strong opposition and home ground advantage were to much for our C Pennant team to overcome today with the result being 5-0 to the Links Shell Cove.

The B Pennant came up against Port Kembla at Shoalhaven Heads but found the going tough against the forminable Port team, the end result was 4-1 for Port Kembla.

The highlight of the day from our perspective was Kyle Van Woerkom winning his debut match for Jmaberoo 4/2 against his low handicapped opponent. Well played Kyle.

The White Horse Cup division 2 team played against the Gerringong club at Worrigee Links. In a very exciting match Jamberoo won 4-3.

It came down to our number 7, Peter Young, who withstood the pressure to win the last hole and the match for Jamberoo.

Other winners were Phil Gosling 3/2, Andrew Ransom 6/4, and Rob Young 2up, Rob holing a 10 metre putt on the last to win his match.

Womens Pennants set to commence.

Good luck to our Womens Golf Illawarra Pennant teams which start on Monday.

The Gold Pennant play against Russell Vale at Kiama, the Silver Pennant play Kiama at Worrigee and the Bronze Pennant also play at Worrigee against Wollongong.

Play well.

News from the Course

Clean Land Fill.

News item by Larry Kent, Club Captain.

Jamberoo Golf Club is looking for clean land fill to build up the approaches, both ends, to one of our bridges.

We need about 100 tonne.

If you know of anybody who has clean land fill to dispose of please contact our office staff at JGC on 4236 5341.


Change in pricing of second hand balls.

Well, not actual pricing but how you can access these golf balls.

It has become financially unviable to continue the ‘two for one’ deal allowing members to use their ball credits to purchase second hand golf balls.

Ball credits are to be used for new balls.

You can of course use your trophy account to purchase the top quality second hand balls on offer.

Volunteer Day this Friday

This Friday is Volunteer day.

Volunteers should come prepared for work on the gardens.

8.30 am start lunch provided at 12.

The Women’s Committee is asking for all members to vote for the number of players going out in Tuesday competitions: groups of 3 or 4. The ballot papers will be handed out over the next few weeks, so make sure you have your chance to vote on this subject. If you are unable to come on a Tuesday please let a committee person know and you will be given your chance to vote. A record is taken of people who have already voted.

Coming Events

Clean Fill Required

If you happen to know of any person needing to rid themselves of some clean fill then we are interested in taking it. Up to 100 tonnes!

Contact the club to arrange a chat with our greenkeeper.
