President Report


At long last golfers in Victoria have been given the green light to return to the fairways.

Our programmed game on 1st June, at Keysborough, has unfortunately been cancelled due to the Club having its Members, first and foremost at its best interests.

We have been successful in securing the Vets a round of golf for the David Vine trophy at Centenary Park on Monday the 15th of June with set tee times commencing at 8.40am.  The social distancing with golf regulations having to be followed at all times.

As advised in the Captain's email the Club will advise members of their starting times such that we do not have large numbers of members waiting around and it will be easier to maintain physical clearance from each other.

There will be a further new requirement for making payment to avoid the starters having to handle money.  Please place your correct payment in an envelope with your name on the envelope and hand that to the starters.

The cost to Vets will be $40 for the round including the raffle and balls down the line, for Centenary club members it will be $10.

There will be further emails prior to the game explaining the format for this round.

So stay healthy and prepare for this round.

A bloke's wife goes missing while diving off the West Australian coast.

Piper not found

He reports the event, searches fruitlessly and spends a terrible night wondering what could have happened to her.

Next morning there's a knock at the door and he is confronted by a couple of policemen, the old Sarge and a younger Constable.

The Sarge says, "Mate, we have some news for you, unfortunately some really bad news, but, some good news, and maybe some more good news".

"Well,' says the bloke, 'I guess I'd better have the bad news first?"

The Sarge says, "I'm really sorry mate, but your wife is dead. Young Bill here found her lying at about five fathoms in a little cleft in the reef. He got a line around her and we pulled her up, but she was dead."

The bloke is naturally pretty distressed to hear of this and has a bit of a turn. But after a few minutes he pulls himself together and asks what the good news is.

The Sarge says, "Well when we got your wife up there were quite a few really good sized crays and a swag of nice crabs attached to her, so we've brought you your share."

Body not found

He hands the bloke a sugar bag with a couple of nice crays and four or five crabs in it.

"Geez thanks. They're bloody beauties. I guess it's an ill wind and all that... So what's the other possible good news?

"Well", the Sarge says, "if you fancy a quick trip, me and young Bill here get off duty at around 11 o'clock and we're gonna shoot over there and pull her up again!

Next event:

Centenary Park for the David Vine starting at 8:00 on 15th June
