I January is fast approaching. DO YOU KNOW THE NEW RULES?
Follow the link New Rules and watch informative videos of the new rules in action.
With storm season upon us I would like to clarify for everyone our dangerous weather policy. Your committee and Proshop receive alerts when there are lightning strikes close to our course. If and alert is received, play will be suspended for a minimum of 30mis to let the danger pass.
I know that this can be frustrating to all members on the course, but it is for your protection. Whilst a lot of us live for golf, its not worth dying for.
Firstly let me apologise for the delay in getting the results posted, there were a few things missed on the day (Senior and Junior champs). But finally here are the results and prizes

Thanks also to Mark Hynes using his dingo post hole digger to dig the holes and Derek Taylor for allowing us to use the leftover timber from the bridges.

The changes to the Rules of Golf come into effect in less than 4 months. ARE YOU AWARE?

Watch this space for further updates and details of in club information sessions.
Slow play is a problem not only at our club, but clubs across the world. This is evident with many of the upcoming rule changes designed to specifically speed up play. There are many things that we can do to assist the overall time taken for our rounds and small changes can have a great impact on not only your game, but all players in the field.
Some things to remember:
We play “ready golf” at GLGC. Walk briskly to your ball and play your shot as soon as you are ready.
Keep your pre-shot routine to a minimum, Line your shot up and hit as soon as possible.
Keep up with the group in front, if you fall behind take measures to catch up (two players head to the next tee while others finish putting)
Place your buggy on the way to the next tee when you reach the green.
Mark your card as you wait to tee off, not standing next to the green after putting.
If players can reduce their time per hole by 30 seconds, this equates to almost 10 mins per round and even though it doesn’t sound much this will have a flow on affect to groups behind you.
Just remember that what you do in your game affects other members on the course
