 2022 Club Calendar

The 2022 Calendar has been updated and the first big events will be the Knock-Outs for 2022. The entry lists will be available on the members’ notice board downstairs from Monday, the 10th of January. The entries will close on the 28th of January.

View the Calendar

The first rounds must be completed on the following days:
• Individual Knock-Out: 12th of February
• Betterball Knock-Out: 19th of February

We kindly request that if you do enter to ensure you play either before the dates or on the dates as per the draw. There will be no exceptions to extend any date for a Knock-Out.

The following rules and procedures shall apply to Club Match-Play/Knock-Out events.
• All results for K/O fixtures need to be submitted by the proceeding Monday @ 12:00, thus allowing players to play their match on either the Saturday, as per the fixture date, or the Sunday of that weekend.
• Extensions will be granted to players who are selected to represent the Club at Club level, i.e. League, Provincial or National level. Furthermore, should the league fall on a Sunday, the player will be granted an extension even if the Knock-Out fixture is scheduled for the Saturday, and he / she wishes to withdraw from golf on the Saturday because he / she is representing the Club, Province or Country on the Sunday.
• The Director of Golf will exercise his / her discretion to avoid misuse of this policy.     
• Should a player be found playing on the deemed Saturday when an extension had been requested, the player will automatically be disqualified from the tournament and the opponent will advance to the following round.
• Players may by mutual agreement play on the alternate golf course, i.e. Bushwillow instead of Firethorn, if it is not possible to play on the stipulated course, for a match being played either before or after the stipulated date.
• Opponents may not unreasonably disagree to play a fixture earlier and wherever possible such requests are to be made at least two weeks beforehand.
• It is the player’s responsibility whose name appears on top of each match tie to confirm the match and tee-time.
• Matches finishing tied after 18-holes must continue on a sudden-death basis from the hole at which the match originally commenced with players taking their strokes as they did at the start of the match. These players will have right of way and will be squeezed in between the field.
• In handicap Knock-Out events, the lowest handicapped player should play off scratch and the other player/s play off the difference between that person’s handicap and their own.
• Each event’s matches may be played on different courses.

  A positive note for our greens
 Looking at the courses

There are finally positive signs on the Firethorn greens. They are growing and root development is good, especially in the sand filled holes from the hollow-tining.  

Over the festive break, we sodded out the worst areas and have been plugging the smaller areas. The bad soil was removed and replaced.

Although the grass is growing well and definitely on the road to recovery, the surface is not up to standard yet, there are still small hollows of dead turf that need to grow close. This affects ball roll and can cause the ball to bounce. We are constantly sanding these areas to smooth them out and to encourage the grass to close over these areas.

We are mowing at 5.5mm to protect them from stress and encourage better roots so the greens will be slow. The worst affected greens are the 12th, 13th and 7th, these will take a while to recover completely while the others are closing quickly and should be very close to normal in the next two weeks. The recent warmer weather has been a blessing and has also helped the greens’ recovery allowing the under surface to dry out and reduce the black layer that formed after all the rain.
