The back to the Bordertown Golf Club event was held on the 3/4 November, the overall weekend was quite successful.
Friday night was a casual affair with our visitors mingling with local members. Saturday we played the Westley DiGiorgio Norcock Ambrose with some 80+ players taking to the course, the weather was perfect and the golf was fun. Drinks and food were provided during the day with all players having an enjoyable time.
Saturday night we had a dinner, which was well attended by some 100 people. The night was beautifully catered for by our catering committee capably led by Bink Barras. Thank you to Bink, and all of the other ladies and men on the social catering committee (also to Clint’s daughter Sophie and her friend Mel for giving up their Saturday night to help thank you) to volunteer for a wonderful job done. Special thank you to Clint for driving the hire bus both in and out on the day and night and for also cooking the beautiful steaks for dinner. The steaks and the rack of lamb were elite to say the least, everyone I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the desserts that followed, so again thank you to all involved on an excellent job.
Some highlights of the night were the opening of the kitchen by our patroness and Life member Nola Fisher. It was lovely to see Nola in attendance and I know she was thrilled to be able to do the opening. Thank you to Nola also to Neil and Jenny for bringing Nola out there for the evening. We also presented, a club favourite, Karon Dinning, with her honorary country membership. Her and husband Bill have sold up and moved to Renmark, Karon has been a wonderful member of our golf club and will be sadly missed.
The highlight of the night, however, was the presentation of a life membership to club stalwart, Bink Barras. Life memberships are difficult to receive from our club, but it was a pleasure to be able to award this to Bink on the night, a much-deserved life member. Congratulation’s Bink Barras.
