Canadian Foursomes 30th Nov
Two players play as partners and use one ball after the tee shot.
Both players play tee shots at every hole and afterwards continue playing that one ball taking alternate shots until the ball is holed. Record your gross score for each hole. The handicap allowance is ⅜ of your aggregate handicap which will be found on your card. Calculate your net score at the endo of your round.

If two players need to go forwards after finishing a hole to catch up or to keep up with the group in front, then please tee up and play. It is not very efficient to go ahead just to sit down and sort out scores and wait for the others! You should finish doing your scorecard whilst the other two are teeing off. Always be ready to walk off the tee as soon as the last person has finished their tee shot. Saving a minute each hole all adds up!

Results of the 75th Anniversary Event Sunday 26th Nov
A dedicated team of Barbara Pearce, Jo Pearce, Chris Whitson and Simon Pearce were the winners of the Ambrose using Hickory Sticks, that were provided by the Golf Historical Society. Our club had a wonderful gathering afterwards with fabulous food as we celebrated the 75th Anniversary. Special thanks go to Bev Alfonso, Barbara Pearce, Glen Vade and all those members who contributed to the event planning and the book that we have all been given. The book is free to all members, so please ask at reception if you haven’t received one yet.

At our AGM last week we voted in our new committee for 2024. President Gill Wood, Captain Virginia McClelland, Vice President AnneMaree McDivitt, Vice Captain and Treasurer Anne Hinton, Secretary Ann Giles, Barbara Gavin, MaryLynne DeJong, Raylee Moylan, Trish Gillett, Sandra Kercher Veterans Rep, and Olwyn Johnstone Handicapper. I know that all are determined to provide a great golfing experience for all our members. Fun and fair competitions are our goal.
Many thanks to our outgoing committee member Di Shea who has been fantastic at taking and organising photos of our events and competitors. She has done photobook that can be found in the locker room. It reminds us how much fun that we can have in one year!
Part of the Women in Golf Charter is increasing focus on looking out. This is something that each of us can do. This can be done when you are talking to others. Express your pride in Bayview. If an acquaintance expresses a desire to take up golf, then encourage them to come to our club programme Get into Golf. We all can spread information around about how much our course has improved and how beautiful it is and how we have an active and friendly community. Brag about our fantastic school kids programme and how successful some of these kids have become in golf. Sew many seeds and we will get growth.
The club plans to commence the multi tee format on the 1st January 24. The default settings will be Blue Course for Men and Red Course for women. If you wish to play off the other tees ie Gold, or Blue course you will be in the same competition and the Proshop will print off a scorecard for you with the appropriate handicap for that course.
After The Christmas event the womens committee will be in recess until Opening Day, so all cards on Thursdays after the 7th Dec should be returned to the Pro Shop
