School Golf Helpers Needed

Junior golfers are the future volunteers and committee personnel for our club. Last term Golf SA visited three of our local schools and conducted clinics with the year 5, 6 and 7 groups. The kids really enjoyed it and they want more. Even the school staff want more.

Conducting activities with the schools is a great way for the golf club to raise its profile in the community and encourage whole families to participate if they want to. Conducting a 3-4 one hour per week golf program as part of the schools PE sessions plus a visit to the golf course is the best way to get the kids involved and is exactly what will be happening at Mt Burr PS in May 2018. Other larger schools have not yet been approached because of the lack of club volunteers to help which is a shame because there are naturally a lot more kids at those schools.

We have a Volunteer Community Instructor willing to run the coaching clinics but the instructor needs helpers. If you are interested in being a helper/supervisor you will need to do the “Working with Children” certificate. Its all done online and when you have completed it you will be reimbursed by Golf SE. Contact Mary Winser for more information Mob: 0438 057 435.

Millicent Golf Club Ladies Results 23.5.18

On Wednesday, 23rd May, at the Millicent Golf Club, 28 Ladies competed for the Golf SA sponsored event, The Shylie Rymill Foursomes.
The foursomes were played in conjunction with the Club Foursomes, whereby the leading 8 teams qualify for match play.
Although the atmosphere was heavy, conditions were ideal for golf.
Alex Lambert and Lyn Watson returned the best score of the day with a nett 74.5 and they also won the Combined Long Drive on the 14th Hole.
The Golf Club Ladies were saddened to receive news on the weekend, that one of their fellow members, Marg Baker had suddenly passed away. After play, Captain, Helen Chilton paid tribute to Marg for her outstanding commitment to the Millicent Golf Club over a number of years, giving her time so freely, and acknowledging Marg’s expertise for Flower arranging and Catering for special events. The Ladies in attendance enjoyed nibbles and a drink to toast Marg for her contribution, and shared many stories as they remember her. She will be sorely missed by us all at the Golf Club.
