Change to Saturday Bookings

Now that the Sports Hub is fully operational, Bluefit is looking to maximise its revenue from both the golf and tennis facilities.

Bluefit has advised that it is receiving an increased number of enquiries from the public regarding golf bookings for Saturday mornings. In that regard, Bluefit is requiring that the Club provide it with details of the number of member bookings we have on Saturday mornings so that it can make any spare bookings available to the public.

Accordingly, to meet Bluefin’s requirements, we will be trialling the following changes to the Saturday bookings system.

As is currently the case, bookings for Saturday rounds will open at 7pm on Thursday, 9 days before the round – there is no change to how the bookings are made.
At 10am on the Thursday 2 days before the round, the booking sheet will be closed.
If you wish to make a booking for the Saturday once our booking sheet is closed, you will have to book your round directly with Bluefit (pro shop).

This trial will be introduced for Saturday, 1 June 2024.  For clarity, bookings for that Saturday will open at 7pm on Thursday 23 May and will close at 10am on Thursday 30 May.

Once you have made your books, the booking time should be considered an estimate of your tee time  and should instead consider the sheet as an order of play.

Please bear with us while we work through this trial.


Saturday 18 May

This Saturday’s Men’s round has been amended to a stroke round (rather than the Stableford round listed in the syllabus) as it is the second round of the President’s Cup, the first round of which was also a stroke round.

We apologise for any inconvenience.


Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 May

We have been advised that next Tuesday and Wednesday (22 and 23 May), the first tee will need to be moved forward to accommodate the digging of a trench for some electrical works.

 

We are advised that the work should take approximately two days to complete.


The GWGC team of Coralie Higgins, Eugena Kwak, Deb Sal, Wendy Hunter and Jenny Eddy won the Division 5 pennant final against top team, Riverview GC, 7 pts to 3 pts on Monday April 15th at Northern GC. Thank you to our caddies Sheryn Mcinerny, Di Wardle and Bong Hwa Park for all of their support on the day.


As Sheryn McInerney is stepping down from her role as VGL Vice President in May, she was presented with a beautiful bunch of flowers and a bottle of wine in recognition of the many years she has been on the VGL committee, a majority of them as Vice President.

 


Slope rating update

As most members would be aware, during the period of construction and course changes the slope rating for your daily handicaps was reduced after consultation with Golf Australia.

With the opening of the first and tenth tee boxes the course is now being played under normal conditions and effective from Tuesday 23rd April the course rating has been reinstated to its original slope.

Make sure when you register for the competition of the day you review your new daily handicap as this will change with the higher rating.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via return email.

 


Men’s Presentation Day

A reminder that the Men’s Presentation will be held at the clubrooms after the competition of the round on  Saturday, 20th April 2024 . A light lunch will be served.


On Sunday 24th December our club captain Gerard Macisaac received an early Christmas present having his second hole in one in 12 months on the same hole, the 7th.
Congratulations Gerard on this special achievement

Stan Lee volunteer work acknowledged at Monash awards

Sir John Monash Awards

Congratulations to Stan Lee who received a Certificate of Acknowledgement in the Active Monash category of the 2023 Sir John Monash Awards.

Stan was nominated by the Glen Waverley Golf Club committee for the regular volunteer work he does around the golf course and for the Club.

For many years Stan cleaned the old Club rooms., particularly before events when other Clubs were attending. Alongside this, he has worked regularly to clear paths, maintain bunkers and generally support the upkeep of our golf course. Very few club members would have any idea of the amount of voluntary work that Stan puts in.

The Monash Council held a cocktail function at the Museum of Australian Photography in Wheelers Hill on October 26th. Stan was accompanied by his wife, Susie, Deb Sal representing the GWGC Committee and Frank Sal who regularly plays golf with Stan.

Again, congratulations and thank you Stan for all of your work.

Finals results for the Men's Handicap Pennant teams

The Handicap pennant finals were played over the past two Sundays 21st and 28th May at Werribee Golf course.  Both the Glen Waverley Black and Red team made the finals, which is a great achievement, well done by both teams.

On Sunday 21st May Team Black who finished on top of the division 6 ladder played Altona Lakes. 
With showers and a cold wind, conditions were tough as was the golf, with both teams finishing the regular play tied at 4 wins each. This meant that a playoff was required and both number one players headed to the 10th hole, a long into the wind par 4 of 396 metres, Wen Zhao managed to win this hole under enormous pressure and secure the title for the team.
Well Done to all members of the team, caddies and supporters who cheered on the team.
  • Chris Sutherland (Captain)
  • Gerard Macisaac
  • Paul Chodziesner
  • Wen Zhao
  • Allan Ludekens
  • VK Kapuganty
  • Sam MacNeil
  • Brian Jenson
  • Kae Hum
  • Dennis Gribbin
 

Pennant team final.jpg

 
On Sunday 28th May Team Red who finished second on the division 8 ladder played Growling Frog.
With rain falling and the outlook bleak, the players were going to be in for a wet round, rain persisted for the entire round in a very close match with all bar one going to at least the 17th hole. Unfortunately, several close matches went against Glen Waverley and the team lost 5 to 3 with 4 matches completed on 18. A great effort in the conditions and some great fight backs in individual games.
Well Done to all members of the team, caddies and supporters who cheered on the team.
  • Scott Williams ( Captain)
  • Darren Buckley
  • Mark Williams
  • Robin Paul
  • Asanka Munasinghe
  • Malcolm Moran
  • Lakmal Liyanage
  • Lutz Toriedt
  • Steve Schenk
  • Cliff Rowe
  • Ian Flett
  • The Committee wishes to thank both Captains and all Team members for representing the club this season. 

 

Following the final home and away match of the Handicap Pennant season, congratulations to both the Black and Red teams for making the finals.
The Black team finished on top of their division after only losing one match for the season and the Red team had a great win away in the last round to finish second.

Both teams will compete for the flag on the following dates
