News from the Club Captain – 11th January 2021

Captain’s Update:

I hope everyone had a relaxing Christmas and that the days following, as people fled the town, were not too traumatic for your families. Our course is looking magnificent thanks to our hard-working green staff and volunteers. It is a pity that more visitors are not around to enjoy it. There are a number of important upcoming events which I have listed below.

Men’s FSC District Championships – Sunday February 7
Venue: Bega Country Club
Entries Close: Sunday January 31 via email to Glenn Edmonds farsouthgolf@bigpond.com
Entry Fee: $15 (Any current Club Champion in any grade has free entry but still needs to nominate) Entry Forms and information available at Reception and on the noticeboard in the clubhouse.

Other Coming Events:

Pre-Australia Day celebration – Sunday January 24. This has become an annual event – 4 Clubs and a Putter. This year the format will also be a Medley Irish Fourball.

Fixture Book
The Fixture Book for 2021 has now been completed and will be available on PMGC Website this week. To access the Fixture Book go to the home page and click on the “read more” button on the Left Hand side under the Blue Competition Events & News Heading. For those members who still wish to sponsor a Daily Event and have not had the opportunity to do so, you may nominate one of the programmed events to sponsor and pay at reception for that event. We will update the electronic version of the fixture book monthly to include the new sponsors.

For those members who do not have access to the website or would prefer a hard copy, it can be purchased from reception at a cost of $5 from January 20.

Member Points
It has been decided that Member Points (those points you accumulate when you win competitions) will no longer expire at any time during the year. Previously they expired every 6 months. As before you may use these points at the Bar or the Pro Shop. You will also be able to use them at our new Eatery, “Plus Fours Food”. Member points cannot be used to pay for membership subscriptions.

I hope that 2021 will be a happy, healthy and safe year for you all.

Good Golfing
