Have you found yourself in a situation where the Rules don't seem to readily apply? Maybe a kangaroo sitting on your ball, or a snake is curled around the ball.......here are the applicable Rules
2014 - Centenary of The Beginning of World War 1 - Commemoration
The Benalla Golf Club, along with many other sporting and community organisations, will be commemorating the Centenary of World War 1.
The Australian Government is encouraging such bodies to participate as part of a national commemoration of this significant part of our history.
The club would like to hear from any Members, and the general public, with historical details of any family members who may have been Members of the Benalla Golf Club at the time and who served in any capacity during the 1914 - 1918 world conflict.
Photographs, along with any details available of the serving Member, that the Club would be permitted to use on this web site and for possible display within the Clubhouse at times yet to be determined over the next four years, would be appreciated.
The Benalla Golf Club commenced in 1903 -well before WW1- and as records of golfing members at the time of the conflict are scarce, we seek your support in this project.
Any information you seek to contribute please address as 'WW1 Commemoration' and may be
- mailed to the Club at PO Box 205, BENALLA Vic 3671
- dropped into the Club at 170 Mansfield Road, BENALLA 3672
The Marketing Committee of the BGC are researching this project with the contact person being Norm Cook.
Thank you for your support in this significant project.
"Lest We Forget"
Members are reminded to secure your cars after parking and as you leave for your round of golf.
