The New Outdoor balcony is a great place to enjoy the a1ernoon sun while dining from the restaurant or in the late evening.
I am sure that this area will prove to be very popular during the summer months.
The Gaming Room has been moved to the Workers Bar side with the new Outdoor Smoking balcony

PRO SHOP RENOVATIONS
These renovations were proposed by the Golf Committee in an effort to address the
poor condition of the Pro Shop.
The materials have been financed solely through funds made from the Saturday
Sausage BBQ. The labour for the renovations was supplied voluntarily by
So thanks to all golfers who have supported the BBQ. And many thanks to
Dennis Allen, without whom the BBQ would never have happened in the first place,
nor run so efficiently, nor the renovations carried out.
As part of the new handicap system, each course in Australia has to be re-rated.
Some of the Central Coast courses have been completed. Mangrove is due some
time in July. But from past experience, this could change. When it does happen
however, volunteers will be required to mark out the new “landing zones” etc.
The Golf Committee is very aware that the indexing for each hole is overdue for
reconsideration. It has been decided to carry this out after the course has been
This is scheduled at Mangrove for August 27th. So make sure you get your team

Well after a very wet April and May we were finally able to get our Club
Championships finished. Due to amount of rain we have had in the past couple
of months the course has held us quite well, I think you will all agree, especially
with the carts using the paths and not crossing the fairways, it has made a
difference and a quick recovery.
Championships results as follows:
Division 2 : Stephanie Rapmund
Division 3 : Sue Lockyer
Division 2: Denise Green
Division 3: Sue Lockyer
Club Champion: Stephanie Rapmund.
Congratulations to all.
We have had a few tournaments with some good results.
Monday the 27th June was the District Foursome Championships held at
Division 1 NET: Denise Green and Stephanie Rapmund came in with a net
69.5 but they were beaten on a countback to Everglades.
Division 2 NET: Sue Lockyer and Carol Alfonso had a net 71, also runners up.
Great effort girls we know how we all LOVE playing Everglades.
We had a few members go up to the Golf NSW Tournament played at Pacific
Dunes on 24th-25th June with some great results also.
Greg and Stephanie Rapmund on the first day had 51 Stableford in the 2bbb.
But unfortunately they were beaten also on a count back to Kooindah Waters
Day 2 was a par event team of four and the Team of Don Thompson,
Julie Curran, Greg Voss and Di Voss came in with +13 which brought them in
third. Another great result.!!
I think they all now know where Mangrove Mountain is…
Keep up the good golfing ……
