Chatter From The 19th!
Your weekly news update
Welcome to the latest edition of 'Chatter From The 19th'. Thank you to all who played in our 'Doing It For Jarrod' golf day on Saturday. All players enjoyed the day, in memory of local golfer Jarrod Lyle, whilst raising valuable funds for 'Challenge', an organisation supporting kids with cancer.

On the social scene we have our Members Draw and Monster Raffle draw this Wednesday evening.  With so many chances to win a prize, it is a great night to get along to Mooroopna Golf Club and enjoy a night out.  Also, coming up on, Wednesday, August 28, is our evening with guest speaker, Liam Pickering. This is a great opportunity to get a group of friends together and hear from this high profile sporting personality right here at the Club for just $20 per ticket.  Further details can be found below.
Have A Great Week, Craig.
Doing It For Jarrod Golf Day
Our regular Saturday Competition turned into a sea of yellow as we hosted a "Doing it for Jarrod" golf day fundraiser. Donations are still coming in however we anticipate that we will raise almost $1,500 for Challenge and Jarrod's Gift. Thank you to all 133 of you who supported this day, in memory of Jarrod, and to raise much needed funds to support kids with cancer.  We still have a few books, pins and ball markers left over if anyone would like to pop into the Pro Shop and purchase any of these products. Congratulations to the winners of the 'Collector Items', Darren James, who won the sleeve of golf balls and Gavan Mears won the towel.  Congratulations also to the winners of all divisions, please refer to the results section of this newsletter for full results.

It was an honour to present the "Supporters Special Flag" to our Club Captain who asked for the flag to be displayed in the Pro Shop. We now await for correspondence from Challenge to see which Club is drawn to win the trip to the Gold Coast and play in the Australian PGA Championships Pro-Am.  Fingers crossed we win and will have a player representing Mooroopna Golf Club on the day of the event.

Swampy Shield
The Swampy Shield was played last Thursday, with 31 Mooroopna Golf Club members heading across to contest the sought after shield. Unfortunately home grown advantage got the better of us and Shepparton Gof Club retained the Shield winning on averages by 3 shots. Thank you to all Members who supported the day.

Online Competition Bookings
As you are aware, the online competition bookings and member portal will go live at the end of the month. To assist members with the new procedures, Darren is providing a demonstration and 'how to' session in the Members Lounge this coming Wednesday, August 21.  There will be two sessions held as follows - 
  • 2pm (approximately), after the Ladies competition presentations, and
  • 6pm SHARP -  This session will take approximately 30 minutes and will conclude prior to the Members Draw
Happy Golfing 
from the Pro Shop Team, Darren, Jo, Sandy, Jaden and James
