Strategic Plan and “Moving Forward”
The Committee has endorsed a new strategic plan.  We will be taking photographs at the Summer Open for inclusion in the plan.

Summer Open - Sat 12th & Sun 13th February

The Riverside GC Summer Open is a 2 day, 36 hole event.

The two day entry fee must be paid up front to qualify for the 36 holes event.

Single day entries are available for the daily prizes only. 

This years event will be sponsored by Oasis Auto Service (Mens) & Mildura Showcase Jewellers (Ladies), with Mighty Murray Outdoors coming on board as a prize supplier.

Zilzie Wines continue to be an amazing support of Nearest the Pins during this event and will sponsor both days on all holes for Men and Ladies.

The timesheet is now open for both days so login and register or contact the club to book.

GBM Australia Day 4 Person Ambrose

GBM stepped up and sponsored the Australia Day 4 person Ambrose.

172 players (43 groups) took to the course.

The course looked outstanding with GBM trucks and machinery around the course. 

Thankfully there were no reported wayward shot striking the vehicles, taking out tail lights or breaking windscreens, except for the grader feeling a wayward drive from the 18th tee by one of our sponsors.

GBM have created a ‘perpetual trophy’ for the group with all Riverside members and the best score. Their names will be placed on the new water truck (was near the 18th tee) and this will be added to each year.

The ‘inaugural’ best group with all RGC members was: James Taylor, Ray Cottle, Gary Van Steenis & Ian Tiley with a 57.5 nett. 

Thank you to everyone for your attendance on the day, which was an event which started to bring the ‘Club’ back together, and plans are already in place for next years event.

Golf Course
The work the groundskeepers are putting in at the moment is a true reflection of their hard work around the course and looking to make it better all the time.

The clubhouse staff have done a great job of watering around the 18th green and practice putting green. This is a vast contrast of previous summers and the movement of traffic along the path, rather than behind the 18th green has aided this improvement.

Continue to assist with filling of divots and repairing pitch marks on the green, even if they are not yours.

An orange course/tees is approved by Golf Australia and is designed for junior players coming through the ranks to give them the opportunity to play competitions.

This course can also be used for novelty member competitions and will allow for all players to play from this course in competition play. 

From the Red & Blue Tees (Craig Jervies - Vice Captain)
The summer has been a warm one, but it hasn’t detracted from the numbers across the week playing competitions.

With the course in great condition it is no wonder people are out playing.

The support for the GBM Australia Day was great to see from members, especially pleasing was the number of groups which were mixed.

We have just held the ‘5th Saturday’ first event for the year, and a great success. We will continue to look at different competitions throughout the year to add a point of different to the calendar.

There are many different competitions out there, some we haven’t heard of, but keep suggesting them and we will see if they fit within the program.

Playing the Course
The course is set by the Green Keepers and the Captains of the club and adheres to the Golf Australia recommendations. 

The course is set dependent on the condition of the course, upcoming course work, the event being played and upcoming events to plan for.

A consistent question from members relates to tees and the permanent plates and tee markers. 

The ‘plates or pavers’ you see on the tee are Permanent Plates for the rating of the course.

The ‘tee markers’ are the movable markers used to set up the course for competition play. 

Golf Australia (Victoria) has confirmed that there is no set distance for them to be apart, but 3m - 5m would be optimal.

The ’tee markers’ can be moved 100m across the course to stay rated at the Plates played from. (Eg: 1st hole 8m in front of plate, 2nd hole 5m in front of plate, 3rd hole 2m behind plate = 11m used across the course)

Accept the challenge of playing from different spots to start each hole and playing the course as set for the competition. 

Social Opportunities

The club is looking to start to ramp up social functions and events. This could be social functions in the clubhouse, an idea for an event on the course or just a random idea for people to enjoy.

If you have any ideas and if you want to assist with staging functions, please forward them to a member of staff or a committee member.
