The Doon Despatch

Friday 20 July 2018


Shirts for Zimbabwe

A Member of the Doon is heading to Southern Africa on a trip in early August. 

He has made contact with the Zimbabwe Junior Golf Organisation and kindly offered to donate a number of his golf shirts for use by their juniors.

Any members kind enough to also donate golf shirts in good condition can drop these into the club's office over the next few weeks, and the member will pick them up before he leaves for Africa.

Driving Range

Members are reminded that all shots hit on the driving range are to be hit from the synthetic mats at the back of the teeing area. This is being done to protect the area during winter.

This includes tee shots that do not take divots.

We thank members in advance for their cooperation.

Wine Orders

Members who ordered wine through the Bar earlier in the year will be happy to know that the orders have come in. 

Please see any of the staff in the Bar to collect your wine.

Photo of the Week

This week's contribution comes from Nathan Sachdev. 

Nathan snapped this shot early on Sunday morning, when the frost overnight hadn't yet thawed. 

Members would all know that frost at Bonnie Doon is very unusual, given the close proximity to the ocean. Luckily, it warmed up into a lovely day.

Members are encouraged to send through their photographic contributions to the Editor, Andrew at andrew@bdgc.com.au.
