The next round is at Kiama on June 17 followed by Jamberoo on July 11.

Volunteer Recognition Day – June 10, 1 pm.

To express our gratitude to all those members who helped out by either volunteering their time at the clean up or by donating to the Flood Relief Fund a Recognition Event will be held on Monday June 10.

This will be a casual get together as volunteers are often reluctant to be rewarded for something they do instinctively. It is understood that not all volunteers will be present on this occasion but the BBQ is the best way to have as many as possible gather around.

Set aside Monday June the 10th as Volunteer Recognition Day with a lunch time BBQ starting at 1pm to express gratitude and acknowledge the Jamberoo Spirit and Pride that members have in their Golf Club.

Any member who has volunteered their time or made a donation to the club are most welcome to attend.   

Rod and his coloured balls.

We all know that the Crows have become a little cheeky at present and are stealing balls from the fairways and sometimes off the greens. They seem to be working in teams of 3 or 5 and have a preference for yellow coloured balls!

Rod Hodkinson had his yellow ball stolen on Monday. Replacing it with an orange ball, it too was absconded by the Crows. Trying a blue ball after that it too was nicked by the cheeky crows.

Rod now was only left with white golf balls and managed to keep them for the rest of his round.

Be aware, any colour will attract our cheeky feathered friends.

There is no penalty attached if a Crow steals your ball. Just drop another at the approximate position where the culprit did the dirty on you.

  1. The aforementioned crows that are chewing on Rod’s balls are actually Australian Ravens (Corvus coronoides)
