Important Changes to Trophy Allocations

With ladies’ trophy donations now processed via our Annual Subscriptions, and due to the willingness of so many of our members to donate a $35 trophy this year, the opportunity arose for your committee to trial a complete overhaul of the trophy allocation procedures.  All trophy donors for 2018 (excluding AGM trophy donors) are no longer allocated to a specific event.  This has enabled all Tuesday and Saturday competition winners to now receive a $40 voucher, and our Monthly Medal winners to receive the medal and a $30 voucher.  A list of all trophy donors is posted in the locker room, and all donors are sincerely thanked by your committee and fellow golfers for your support and generosity.  If you have any questions about your trophy donation, please see either Helen, Elaine or Sue Rapson.
