Welcome to the June 2020 edition of the Toukley Golf Club monthly Captain’s report.
We are continuing on the path to a return to normality for the golf club. Not only are we
playing in groups of four and back to utilizing two tee starts, the clubhouse has re-opened
with limited numbers allowed entry. The previously published Golfing Guidelines and
Temporary Local Rules are still in force, with any changes subject to Government directive.
The qualifying round for the John Brigstock singles Knockout Trophy was held on Saturday
30th May, with 16 players qualifying. Please note ALL subsequent seeded matches of this
event are as programmed and will be played in afternoon tee spots commencing 11:30am.
The qualifying round for the Laurie Powell Medley Singles Knockout Trophy was played on
Sunday 31st May, also with 16 qualifiers. The first round has been moved to the 14th June,
with all subsequent rounds as programmed. Players will be entered onto the timesheet in a
seeded draw. Please see the published draws for all knockout events which can be found on the new Match Committee notice board located adjacent to the Half-Way House.
The qualifying round for the Ray Eckford 4B Knockout Trophy will be played Saturday 13th
June. Please note ALL subsequent seeded matches of this event are as programmed and will be played in afternoon tee spots commencing 11:30am. The draw will be placed on the Match Committee noticeboard when finalized.
The next major Club event is the Carlton Toukley Cup, a men’s NSW Vardon event, which
will be played on Saturday 29th August.
The Toukley Mixed Foursomes Championships are scheduled for Sunday 30th August but
unfortunately the District Mixed Foursomes Championships scheduled to be run in
conjunction has been cancelled for 2020.
A decision on the playing of the 2020 Super Senior Pennant series is pending. In the
meantime I would encourage any members interested in participating in the series to
contact the Super Senior Pennant Coordinator Tom Preston on 0438 432 106. Full details of
the series are available at the website superseniorpennant.com
Unfortunately I have received reports of instances of conceding of putts (not holing out)
during competition rounds. Members should be aware that this is a serious breach of the
Rules of Golf, and any further instances of this may result in serious consequences for any
competition player(s) found guilty of participating in this behaviour.
Regards and good golfing,
Jack Boardman, Club Captain,
for and on behalf of the Match Committee.
