Womens Golf Casino Beef Roundup Open Day on Friday 19th May.
Andrew Daddo says “How Good is Golf “; and this has to be true, when we can bring a feeling of England to the competition with the weather producing a foggy; misty, hazy day for the best part of the morning, until around 12.30 to 1 p.m., then the rain came down a little heavier just as the girls were finishing their final hole of the competition.
It was a FUNTASTIC day so the ladies have told us. President Debbie and Captain Linda welcomed the 85 ladies who did come to play out of the 112 who nominated; providing a great meet and greet morning tea prior to teeing off.

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.
Saturday 10th February there were 91 players come to play in the Casino Golf Club DIY Home Hardware 2BBB Stableford with Single in Conjunction. Mark and Judy came out to present the trophies to the winners. 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.
