30th April 2024

Golf Operations – Live Timesheets  

Members can and are now expected to book to play on every occasion,  right up to their tee times. 
Those playing anytime off peak can book as they arrive in the car park and head to the tee .
Like on main comp days- those members on the timesheet (at the correct time and tee) will no longer need to report to the golf shop on arrival.

Only members needing help to book in will have to report to the golf shop 1st or those wanting to hit off a different tee to that booked.

Golf staff will be trained to use the live timesheets all day and will start running the tee all day if/ when required and eventually incorporating more course patrols to ensure all players are booked. 
We do require you as members to help. Please ensure you use your phones to be on the tee on time, be aware of who is in front and don’t wait to be called if the group is out of reach. In future we hope the tee can run effectively using technology to assist. Our staff will always be around and monitoring if needed. 

CDS- Container Deposit Scheme- Recycling

The club has transitioned into recycling bins around the clubhouse. Please use the recycling bins where appropriate.

Niall Rogan has now been joined by Wes Greig to join the course team. Wes comes from Head Super Eynesbury Golf and joins Aaron, Dale, John and Oscar to make a team of 6 on course staff.

Member Club Storage and Batteries

As  of April 1- all member equipment stored in the buggy storage and cart shed are stored at owners risk. That means we encourage all members who wish to have their golf equipment insured to take out their own insurance.

A notice will be supplied to all members who use storage. The club’s equipment insurance does not cover all sets in case of fire or major theft, so the Board have chosen to minimize exposure to any risk. 

Member’s equipment is insured throughout the golf course and anywhere in Australia as a general rule – more info under membership news or via the office with an excess.

Car Park

Cars are parked at owners risk as always.

Strategy and Workshop Information

The recent survey, member workshop and Golf Australia strategy session has informed the board’s planning for 2024 and beyond. These activities are also being considered in the update and refresh of the current Medway Strategy.

Based on member feedback the Board have commenced working on solutions for Practice facilities and general improvements. The Board will shortlist some projects and have finalized the 2024 budget to allow for planning and projects to be prioritized for commencement. 

Some potential improvements listed below in no particular  order and concept drawings below but only in very early planning stages and not fully costed or Board approved as yet;

  • Outside toilet repair- roof leak- completed April 24
  • 4th dam extension and repair- to be completed April 24

The course related improvements and course equipment needs will be included in the new Superintendent’s course works planning and maintenance schedule. To be published 2nd half of the year. 

The larger and longer term capital works items require funding as part of developing the full Medway strategy.

The current Membership strategy is under Membership news page.

Melbourne Water Project

Recent update as of April is that the project is still continuing and will break ground near 8th tee shortly. A major re-engineering is being done surrounding the river crossing. In May MW will have a final idea as to whether to proceed either across the top of the river or underneath.

Once that decision is made the timelines for the project will be more certain. If it ends up being an underneath solution the project will take much longer and we will re-address our compensation and playing strategies as a result. If the bridge remains the project should be completed by end of 2024 and works progress on the river bank immediately.

As a short term measure the club has asked MW to provide a temp tee (artificial grass) approx 110 metres to green to play the 8th whilst the project is in delay. If/ when that occurs the chipper will have a rest- become a short game area again and the course will be played as normal. 

As a side note if you’re interested, for any info relating to the broader Maribyrnong flood review Melbourne Water is undertaking (not specific to this project) you can check out the link below.

Staff and Member Safety

With increase playing numbers please be aware to minimize risk on course;

We roster ground staff accordingly to minimize interference on main competition days or work early morning.

Beware of Snakes at all times
