Over the past couple of weeks we have noticed a decline in the number of members playing golf on a Saturday. As such we have adjusted the tee times for members playing on Saturdays to allow for as many golfers as possible to have access to the course. We would like to assure all members that early tee bookings of members will reflect the time green fee golfers will have access to the course. We will continue to keep an eye on this and we will inform members of any further changes. We would also like to remind members that under the current restrictions for Covid-19 we are only able to offer social golf. Hopefully things will ease over the coming weeks, but until then, we appreciate everyone’s support and understanding. The Match committee would also like to give special thanks to Paul Powell and Deb Murray for their efforts over the past couple of weeks, it hasn’t been an easy time for them both but their efforts are very much appreciated. On another note the President, Match and Grounds Committees would also like to thank the members that gave up their spare time on Saturday morning to repair parts of the course. We thank you all and appreciate all the support we receive from our members.

NOTE FROM AXEDALE GOLF CLUB TO BELVOIR PARK MEMBERS
Axedale welcomes Belvoir members to play our course at no charge, as agreed between our clubs. Please note, though, that until further notice you must book ahead to secure your tee time. We require this to manage our COVID obligations, but it is always best practice to contact a golf club in advance to ensure you can get on.
Currently we have reserved tee times for Axedale members only on Saturdays until 2.00pm and from Wednesday-Friday until 1.00pm. Outside those times, we would be delighted to host you at our course. Please call David on 0419 154 977 to book your tee time.

Our 'Good Samaritan' volunteers !!!
There are many times when some of our golfers just seem to 'go missing' and often that golfer may be hospitalised, unwell or going through some tough times. Over the past couple of years we have a wonderful couple who have taken on the volunteer role of our 'Good Samaritans'.
Frank and Merrilyn Kinsman, both long time members of our club (40+ years member medallists), have been quietly keeping in touch with many of our sick or missing members and letting them know that our Club does care for all our members.
Anyone who has received a phone call from either Frank or Merrilyn will know just how good they are at working in this position. Their phone calls are unobtrusive and always in such a kind & caring manner that recipients certainly feel that they are being thought of and as valued members, their presence is certainly missed from our club.
We have many members volunteering for many jobs around the club but this role is sure to be unique to our club. It is one that we need to embrace and feel proud that we have two members who are so good at the 'Good Samaritan' role.
To assist Frank or Merrilyn, if you know of any member who may benefit from a phone call - please let them know - they often have to rely on other members letting them know of anyone's ill health/fortunes.
