Albert Park Golf Course is open
From the Captain
Tuesday tee times for 18 holes start at 7:40am (10 tee times) and 9 holes starts at 8:40 (8 tee times). Please ensure you keep to this schedule as Alpert Park Golf Course is at capacity and Paul as has asked all golfers to start on time and to “keep up with the group in front, not in front of the group behind”.
Tee times are at a premium at APWGC, so not to miss out you can book your next round 8 days in advance. If the field is full, please add your name to the waitlist. The Captain will request more timeslots with Albert Park Golf Course and add these the booking sheet.
Keep Your Distance
It is very important to keep your social distancing to a minimum of 1.5m. Please keep your distance to those around you and please leave a gap of 100m between the group in front.
Please arrive no more than 20 minutes before your tee time and depart within 15 mins of finishing your round.
Your free trial of the MiScore App will expire on Monday Nov 2nd. Please note to use the app after that date will cost $16.50. You can purchase this on the App Store or Play Store. It is worth noting that we do not intend to remove scorecards completely, however we recognise the need for this App at this time as we remove as many contact touch points as possible. We encourage all members to download the MiScore App, which has an added benefit of facilitating faster and more efficient administration of our daily competition events. APWGC has activated the self-score submission as from Saturday Oct 24th.
Equipment and Practice Facility
Please bring your own bucket to repair your (and others) divots. The practice green will be closed along with the practice nets.
Enjoy your golf on the fairways and greens and “hit the shot you know you can, not the one you think you should”
Hole in One News
Congratulations to Lorraine Mair who on Tuesday 9 June scored a Hole in One on the 2nd hole.
Lorraine’s beautifully struck 9 hybrid pitched just short of the hole and then rolled out of sight. Lorraine secretly held her breath thinking it might have gone in, whilst her playing partners thought the ball may have rolled off the back of the green. Much to everyone’s delight it was sitting in the hole.
This was Lorraine’s second hole in one, her first was in New Zealand at the Shandon GC, Lower Hutt back in 2012.
Lorraine celebrated with champagne and gorgeous nibbles on Tuesday under strict covid-19 conditions.
Well done Lorraine!
On the Ball for Cancer
Albert Park Women’s Golf held their annual charity day recently. Each year a charity is selected and this year the Committee selected Ovarian Cancer Australia (OVA) as the nominated charity in memory of one of our members, Clare Fidler, who sadly passed away earlier this year. Clare was a very popular member and active committee member with the club for many years and had been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer over 20 years ago. She is greatly missed by us all so it was fitting to remember her in this way.
The charity day, held at the Albert Park Golf Course on Tuesday 18 November saw members and their guests enjoy perfect weather for their golf day. They played a fun Ambrose Pairs event which was followed by a delicious lunch of Paella provided by YUM Catering.
Overall, the club raised a whopping $1,230 to help support OVA with much needed funds! A big thank you to everyone involved.
