Minutes of Golf Section Committee Meeting

Held at Backworth Hall on the 8th November 2017

Matters Arising.

The treasurer informed the committee that there appeared to be a discrepancy between the number of new members stated by the Welfare Manager and his figures.

The Captain supplied figures for Division1 and Division 2 winners in 2017. At a recent meeting it had been argued that the current system favoured high handicaps however the figures supplied showed that there were 26 division 1 and 18 division 2 winners in 2017.

Secretary’s update

The Graham Willis Trophy supplied by the Captain was shown to the committee.

Deakin printers have gone into liquidation and another printer will have to be sourced.
