Clas­sic week­end to start busy month

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - SPORT -

It’s Spring Clas­sic week­end and that means a huge cou­ple of days at the club.

Good luck to all play­ers, and on be­half of the club our thanks to Har­vey Nor­man De­niliquin for its gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship again this year.

We are ex­pect­ing two days of de­light­ful spring weather, in con­trast to the down­pours which in­ter­rupted last year’s Spring Clas­sic, so it is shap­ing up as a rip­per week­end.

At this time of year the course is gen­er­ally busy, with lots of events for the ben­e­fit of mem­bers and vis­i­tors.

Next Sun­day, Novem­ber 12, is the an­nual Legacy Char­ity Day and the fol­low­ing Sun­day, Novem­ber 19, is the Chan­nel 4 Change Char­ity Day, sup­port­ing Brenda Nor­man’s English Chan­nel swim to raise aware­ness of men­tal health.

Th­ese are two events wor­thy of your support. Both will be 11.30am gath­er­ing for 12 noon shot­gun start and you can regis­ter in the Pro Shop.

For ju­niors who want to learn the game, or im­prove their skills, the Ju­nior Golf Clin­ics will re­turn from 4pm tonight.

A pop­u­lar an­nual com­pe­ti­tion is our Sum­mer Six­ers, giv­ing novice and ex­pe­ri­enced golfers a chance to en­joy a friendly nine hole com­pe­ti­tion at their leisure each week. This year’s Sum­mer Six­ers starts next Mon­day. Regis­tra­tions are be­ing taken in the Pro Shop.
