Through The Green

Hello Golfers

The greens will be sprayed on a Tuesday in order to kill off the weeds. Please be mindful when cleaning the ball, that you do not lick you fingers.

As the greens are being sprayed for the next 6 weeks, they will not be mowed on a Tuesday until mid July.

My contact details are tworobs@live.com.auor mobile 0413 705 966

Cheers Rob Merrill

Volunteer News

Thank you to ALL the volunteers who worked on the course this week.

Reminder that it is a condition of ongoing Honorary membership that you contribute to the club. Volunteering for work on the course or at working bees is a great way to contribute, meet other members as well as assist in completing much needed maintenance for the club, without which our club cannot survive.

Still looking for people to help out on Fridays to cut pins

If you have the time I have a number of jobs that can be completed by an individual at a time that suits you. Jobs as as easy as cutting low hanging branches to clearing debris from the fence line, so please email or call me if you can spare an hour or 2 during the week.

My contact details are tworobs@live.com.auor mobile 0413 705 966

Got a Rules Question?

If you have any general rules questions or specific scenarios that have happened to you or your playing partners when playing please send them to me using the club email address raafgolf16@gmail.com, and I will do my best to answer them here for everyone to read and learn. Your name will not be used, instead I will answer anonymously using Dear Jack for the Men and Dear Jill for the Ladies. If you can take a photo at the time or recreate the scene for a photo so I have as much information as possible would be even better.


Pace of Play 

  • Ready Golf is encouraged, 40 sec per shot.
  • Keep up with the group in front - if you lose sight of them, increase your pace of play; 
  • Check the score card for the estimated tee time for each hole to see if you are on time or not;
  • Limit practice swings. 
  • Watch where your ball goes and pick a landmark to help locate it; 
  • Ask someone else to watch your shot if you are unsure where it may go;
  • Play a provisional ball if you are AT ALL unsure if you will locate the ball;
  • Look for and find a ball within 3 minutes - no more!
  • Move to next tee block once you have holed out - don't wait for all other players to hole out; 
  • First player to tee, tee off before marking score card; 
  • Walk purposefully.  
  • If you are having difficulties keeping up, let the group behind play through.
