Passing of Life Member Richard J ("Richie") Day
The Club acknowledges the life and contributions of Life Member Richie Day who passed away on Saturday 29 December 2018.
Richie joined the Benalla Golf Club in 1975 from the Golden Vale Golf Club.
He was Junior Vice President from 1987 - 1992 and was President in 1993 and 1994.
Richie was a Pennant player for Benalla Golf being a member of the winning Division 1 team in 1983, 1984 and during the late 1980’s was involved in a hat trick of Pennant Flags for the Division 2 Benalla Team.
His contribution to the Club was considerable through his work on the course and on his handi woodcraft skills in the Clubhouse illustrated with the Bar posts which he skillfully crafted from the old water tank stand, adjacent to the old original Clubhouse, prior to its demolition.
Richie will long be remembered as dedicated supportive Member of the Benalla Golf Club.
A Memorial Service will be held at the Clubhouse on Tuesday January 8, 2019 at 2:00pm
