The Tankard Dental Club Championships were played in splendid conditions over the 4 days culminating on 5 December 2021.

The course was presented in fantastic condition.   Ashley Whitehouse shot a 4 under 68 on the final day to move through the field and prevail over Steve Wilmann by one single shot.

Ash was crowned Riverside’s Champion Golfer for 2021.  This was his third victory in the event.

From the Red & Blue Tees – Kendall Marchment (Club Captain)

January – Saturday One Timesheet & One Tee

During January with the warmer weather and holiday period the Saturday competition will return to a ‘One Tee All Day Timesheet’.

This decision has been made to allow for flexibility with the warmer weather and the number of holiday visitors in the area during this time.

Members will have preference to book the ‘primetime’ tee times from 7:30 – 8:30am & 11:44am – 1pm, until Thursday morning. Visitors wanting to play in the competition will then be allowed to book during these times.

Green fee players will be allocated times at the discretion of Clubhouse Staff.

Program 2022

The Program for 2022 is currently being put together. As a match committee we are looking for a program that is shows consistency throughout the year with Wednesday and Saturday competitions.

Saturday competitions will run through the month: Stableford, Par, Stableford and Stroke (Monthly Medal).

Wednesday competitions will be: Stroke (Monthly Medal), Stableford, Par and Stableford.

If there is a 5th Saturday or Wednesday in the month, we will try a different event (eg: 4BBB, Ambrose, Red Tees or other suggestions)

The program will be adjusted to accommodate Perpetual Trophy events throughout the year.

We look forward to your participation – Kendall.
