Bermagui Social Golfers

A lovely sunny but cool morning greeted us as we played a stableford event over 9 holes.  The winner was Jim Bryan, runner up was Mal LeComte, and third was Michael Brown.  NTP on the 8th was Shane “Kiwi” Rowe.

We met back at the local pub and had lunch provided by the new publican.  We held our presentations and raffles and the meat tray was won by Carly a patron from the Bistro and the Veggie tray was won by David Webster for the second week.  The Pizza voucher was won by Dawn a patron from the Bistro.

After the prizes were drawn our members all met Luke and Lou Redmond the new managers of the Hotel. Luke is coming home as he grew up in Quaama and Bermagui but for the last decade or more he has been the manager of a yacht club in Double Bay.  Thanks to our sponsors the Bermagui Beach Hotel, Bermagui Pizza, Triple 7, and Needs Butchery.

Clear your calendars for Sunday 17th and 24th of September as on the 17th we are going to Tuross Head and on the 24th we are going to Tathra to challenge Eden and Bega Social Golf Clubs in what we call the Tri-Nations Trophy.
