Another year is well under way and we are in the midst of some sensational summer weather. Fields have been reasonably full on Saturdays and there have been healthy numbers of golfers on the fairways through recent weeks. All good for the club.

Despite the rains of two weeks back the golf course is showing the customary signs of drying at this time of year.  Only about 37 mm of rainfall so far for January.

Recently I initiated a message to members asking for support for Pat Foy in the use of the travelling fairway sprinklers.  I must thank Graham who has already started working with Pat; also Gary Walters has indicated he would like to assist.  Well done fellas and thank you.

2021 Trophy Presentations:  Last Tuesday the ladies held their 2021 trophy presentation and I believe this was quite successful.

At general committee two weeks back it was decided that the men’s trophies for 2021 will be presented after the competition on Saturday 5 February.

There will be a sausage sizzle available after play on the day and committee would like to see as many members including the recipients present for the awards.

Please make an effort to boost the occasion.

Life Membership Award:  Speaking of awards.  In mid-2021 committee decided to recognise one of our long time members with Life Membership of the club.  Such an award is quite restricted to members who have made significant contribution to the club and members.

Murray Sells is the latest to be awarded this honour.  Murray for those not aware has allocated significant amounts of time to the technical care of our course machinery and our golf cart fleet. Over many years his timely and unselfish effort has saved the club valuable finances.  Murray will hate me putting this in the news; but if you haven’t passed on your congratulations since he received the award in December please do.

BZ Muz and thanks.

The golf course apart from the signs of drying remains in terrific state thanks to the continuing efforts of Pat and Dave assisted by all the volunteers – including the hand waterers.

Drainage Projects:  It appears that Pat is not happy unless he is digging holes and filling them in.  Therefore there will be the next stage of drainage works conducted from Friday 5th to Friday 11th February.  Works will be confined to the 18th fairway above the concrete cross drain.  This work will further enhance the course by reducing the amount of water that tends to gather during peak rainfall periods.

New Patio Furniture: Members will notice that we have replaced the former green patio furniture with new stock.  I think this addition will lift the look of the whole area while providing enhanced comfort to members and patrons.  Thanks to Danny and Margot for facilitating this purchase.

CGC Website:  For those that may not have viewed the club website in recent days, it has received quite a face lift through the valuable efforts of Kris Kelly.  Kris has been assisting with Facebook for some time and has now adopted the website.  Thank you Kris from everyone your involvement has certainly enhanced communications and the image of the club.

Clubhouse Cleaning: I would like to highlight the efforts of our relatively new cleaner.  Linda Denny commenced a few weeks ago following the stepping aside of Kev Anderson who had undertaken the role for many years.  I’m sure you’ll agree that the club house internals including toilet amenities are looking great.  Thank you Linda for your work.

Ladies’ Get Into Golf:  Lady President Vicki Rynaard will be shortly moving ahead with standing up a Get Into Golf program to encourage women and girls to take up the sport and join the club.  Please watch out for more news from Vicki and if you know of any potential candidates who may want to join in – please let her or Danny know.

Handicap Match Play – 2021 Competition:  This competition is still not finalised and the 2022 event will soon be commencing.  Therefore the committee requests affected members move ahead quickly over the next couple of weeks and complete their matches.

It has been a very busy Christmas and New Year period at the Club.  Well done to Pat, Dave and the volunteers for the way the course has been presented – I have had many favourable comments from visitors enjoying our course.

At times it can be quite challenging running our time sheet bookings – the main issue being the turn around for those playing 18 holes.  I would like to thank members for their patience over the Christmas period.

I would also like to remind members that when booking social rounds via 1GOLF, to change your booking to “9 holes” if that is all you wish to play.  Quite regularly members book rounds for 18 holes when only playing 9 – this results in an automatic turn-around booking being generated, which is not required.  For assistance or further clarification please come and see me.

In order to better meet the needs of our members and visitors, the club recently acquired 2 new Yamaha golf carts, bringing our current total fleet number to 14.  This will no doubt help especially during hot summer weather.

I am regularly being asked about the MISCORE app which seems to be coming quite popular for not only competition golfers but social play.  Cerberus is not currently registered for this service but it will be raised for Committee consideration at the next meeting.      

I would like to thank Kris Kelly for an amazing effort in taking our website to the next level.  Combined with regular updates on Facebook, Kris is the tech guru every club needs to keep up to speed.

Happy new year to all and let’s hope for a full calendar of golf this year.  The 2022 programme of events has been finalised and books will be printed shortly.  1GOLF will also be configured to reflect the programme.


The scanning and verification of ALL score cards must be done in the presence of your marker, any adjustments or alterations made to your score card after scanning MUST be verified by your marker.

Our golf season begins Tuesday 25th January with a stableford event and the beginning of our summer eclectic. We are bringing ladies Tuesday competition into line with the Saturday comp and our competition fees will be increased from $8.00 to $10.00, with this increase comes more benefits.  All our major and trophy events will now be covered by our weekly comp fees and there will be no extra paid to enter the Cerberus Cup or Club Championships.

We have also included 3 extra trophy events, Summer Cup, Autumn Cup and Spring Cup to complement our Winter Cup.  Our eclectic will also be changing to a four season event rather than a yearly event.  We feel that this is another step forward for both our ladies and the club in general and are looking forward to the year ahead.

We also have some exciting news of a new programme we are putting together for women golf beginners.  With the support of Golf Australia and the Ladies Sub-committee we intend to run a “Get into Golf” programme for women who have been thinking about trying our game but haven’t had the confidence to do so.  Hopefully this will complement our already successful “My Golf” for juniors which is run on a Friday afternoon.  Our aim is to not only encourage more women to join Cerberus but to have them play in our competitions as well.
