• July 2015 – Men’s Captain

     

    As the current captain of our great club, I would like to firstly reassure all members that we are moving forward with the process of finalizing the sale of land to secure the future of our club. We must be patient throughout this time to ensure the club has a chance to position itself in the strongest possible situation for years to come. Current time lines should see offers presented to the club before our AGM in August.

    Our Men’s Pennant season is all but over, with Drouin fielding teams in Scratch Division 1 & 2, and Handicap Division 1 & 3. After a good start to the season by all teams bar scratch 1, it seems they timed their run better than most. Scratch 2 was the unlucky team missing out on a berth in the finals by 6% points after the last round played at Pakenham. We are however proud to see Scratch 1 contending for the flag for the third straight season, we wish them all the best in their efforts to bring home their third flag in as many years. The final will be played at Moe on Sunday 5th July, with the Division 1 final starting at 10:40am, get along and support our boys if you can and enjoy the great standard of golf on offer. I would like to thank Stuie Low, Peter Daniel & Mark Allen for their work captaining teams this year and thank all players who represented our club with great team spirit throughout the season.

    The Stroud trophy was run and won during June with Graham Austin & John White (the old stagers) pulling off a convincing win over the much younger, but not very good looking, team of Matt Guy & Ryan Hammond (S.T’s), well done gentlemen.
    With the colder weather closing in we really need all members throwing out an open invitation to friends of other clubs to come along and experience DG&CC hospitality both on the course and in the club house.

    With my course development hat on, I would like to reassure members that tree works happening around the course are following a planned approach to improve course conditions ready for works in Spring – not, as some have suggested, just clearing every tree the Captain found himself behind in the last month.
