Wednesday 15th Feb, was the Richmond Dairies Sponsored Trophy with a field of 27 allowing only 2 Grades. The numbers were down this day unfortunately. It was great to have Julie Llewellyn; a representative of the company come and play with the ladies and help present the vouchers for the day. Julie (also one of our weekend golfers) gave some information on the Richmond Dairies business. Richmond Dairies not only supplies their waste water to our dams for our fairways, they also donate a lot back to the community of Casino, and they are always affected by the problems that affect our dairy farmers. A Grade was won by Margaret Bretherton(21) with 36 points on a c/b from Meryl Ellaby(25). B Grade was won by Janelle Godfrey (31) with 34 points from Kay Clapham (28) with 32 points. Balls went to scores of 32 on a c/b. The highlight of the day for Jean Ellis(41) was her NTP on the 10th where she was in the hole for 4. The Eagles Nest was not won this week, it has 1 Ball in it.
Friday 10th Feb was the Tony Hatton Auto Electrical Sponsored Trophy and there was a field of 14. The winner of the day was regular visitor from Coraki Margaret Sullivan (41) who won the day with her 37 points.

Wednesday 14th February and the weather reports were sending out signs of a 41° day, so most of the ladies were out early to hit off, and get in before the heat reached its peak. There were 28 ladies who made it to the South Casino Butchery sponsored day, making 2 Divisions for the Sponsorship Trophies. The Overall Winner of the day was Kay Wood (28) finishing with a Nett 70 to also take out the Monthly Medal and the Vets Comp.

Mick and Josh Innes were sitting pretty with 48 points in the 2BBB Stableford until the last group made up of Shane Hogan and Andy Shaw put them in the runner up position with 49 Points. Shane gave his apologies not being able to stay for presentation.
Wednesday 7th February what a great day for golf with an early start to the day and the fresh morning air continued on throughout the day. Thank you to the ladies who called our Captain to express their apologies for not being able to come due to either illness or injury they have sustained over the break. There was a field of 28 and the scores are really quite good considering not many played through the summer months of December/January. The greens have been scarified and on their way back (looking really good and magic to putt on) and the fairways are looking great after the frequent showers we have been getting.
What a day it was on the 11th of November, remembering our fallen at 11 a.m. The Casino Social Golf Club & Darren Rae were the sponsors of the Mexican 4BBB Stableford Event and the majority of the 104 players soldiered on through the wind and the rain that came down in buckets on a couple of occasions. It was a huge day for the Golfers with Malcolm Olive (13) and Darren Rae(29) finishing with 51 points from the 1st Runner Ups Zac Innes (10) & Darren Grimston (27) who had 49 points from 2nd Runners Up Terry Oaten (19) & Nathan Chadderton (18) on 48.
It was definitely a cooler day to play golf on Wednesday 8th with the temperature getting to around 24 degrees, and the overcast weather turned a few players away. There was a field of 32 players for the O/A Clydesdale Trophy and the Division Trophies were provided by Casino Centre Bakery. The Overall Winner was Dianne Black (34) who finished with 35 points; the “Preferred Lies” being taken off obviously didn’t put Dianne off
Casino Golf Club Foscars & Casino Tyre Professionals 4 Person Team Drop the Worst Score Stableford event took place today and there were 92 in the field.

Wednesday 25th October and all donations have been made to the respective local charities as the Outgoing Committee finalises their year of a job well done as well as a great golfing year. Rebecca from “Our Kids” came to the club after the golf game to accept the donation made to “Our Kids” based in Lismore near the Base Hospital; to talk with the Ladies to let them know about the job they do and what the money will be spent on. They do a wonderful job for the kids and families who need the support and somewhere to stay during treatment.
