Hi all,


Margot and I would like to thank everyone for their gift of appreciation at the conclusion of our trip to Howlong.

It was much appreciated and not expected as we enjoy organising the getaway.


We would like to thank all who contributed to make it another success, by supplying nibbles and slices also

the barbeque cooks and the helpers with the preparations and the cleaning up.


We are looking forward to increased numbers for next year and have set aside more rooms in anticipation.


Thanks once again,




Margot and Ron Castledine.

I Came to Glen Waverley because:

I was a member at a Local and undulating course. I’ve finished my game and started counting the body parts which were aching. I’m thinking- this course is not ideal for somebody of your venerable age. Having looked around I found Glen Waverley-well maintained- a great bunch of guys-and-no hills.—————

Me” I came because I was playing social golf with friends but I wanted to get an official handicap. The people I played with ,one was a member of GWGC and so I joined and now I play golf with a handicap and enjoy the friendship of the club.————————

I found that the GWGC was closer to home, cheaper to play per game and yearly subscription to the club and I can play in the morning and not the afternoon as I was playing at the other club.——————————
