Round The Traps - 5th September 2018

G'day Members,

We are currently doing some little fixes around the Clubhouse sorting out some issues that have been on the horizon for a while. The Men's locker room has had a couple of additional lights added, an old fan removed and a switchboard raised up to allow a row of lockers to be pushed back against the wall. The external light switch (for the Men's locker area) that used to be in the breezeway, has also been moved inside the entry corridor (behind the metal gate)

We’re also doing some “keyhole surgery” to investigate why the carpet in the main club room is lifting. It appears as if the void under the dance-floor (which is actually 3 times bigger than it appears) has been suffering from swelling due to moisture. Condensation is thought to be the major cause with seemingly no leaks visible from any other water sources. The swelling timber then causes the carpet to lift, creating potential trip hazards. In short, we’re on the case and hopefully we can come up with a solution to minimise the impact to Members and users of the Clubhouse.

When it rains it pours…the Auto Opening/Closing doors on the front of the Clubhouse have failed and require a replacement motor & gearbox. The parts have been ordered and are on their way, but the $3500 price tag certainly hurt. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Those of us that blast our tee shots right off the 1st and 2nd tees will notice a fair bit of action on the new greens turf nursery. A number of trees have been removed and the sand base has been installed and levelled. The irrigation will be installed early next week before some amendments being added to the soil profile to assist with the growth program. This nursery is a considerable investment ($10K+) in our clubs future with a view to providing better putting surfaces in both the short and long term. The nursery is over 600m2 or roughly 2.5 times the size of the practice putting green next to the Golf Shop that was recently refurbed. Our ultimate goal is to have all 18 greens pure and free and foreign grasses, but of course it won’t happen overnight.

Just a gentle reminder for all Members to check in with the Golf Shop BEFORE you head out on course. With the introduction of the Member bag tags and Member Cards, club staff have been checking on social play out on course. Please don’t be offended if asked if you don’t have your Members Bag tag displayed. If you haven’t already picked up your new Members Card and Bag Tag, please stop by the Golf Shop to collect them.

We’ve started leaving “not so nice notes” on vehicles that park out the back of the Clubhouse. Just last week we had an issue where a delivery truck had great difficulty in getting access to our delivery doors. Many thanks to 99% of people who do the right thing.

Next week is RUOK? Day (Thurs 13th Sept) and the Club is promoting this very topical subject for the entire week of 10th – 16th of September. Our Club, and Club Members are certainly not immune to Mental Health issues and in recent times have experienced a number of tragedies which impacted on many people. By simply starting a conversation with somebody, you could change a life. All Golf events during the week are team events starting with the CASGC Wednesday Men’s comp being a 2 Ball Ambrose, the Thursday Women are playing a 3Ball Ambrose, Saturday’s comp is a 4BBB Multiplier and the Mixed Foursomes on Sunday. It should be a fun week and don’t be afraid to ask your friend… R U OK?
Hope to see you Round the Traps!
