We Are Looking For Members
If you happen to meet up with former members that no longer come to games give them a friendly reminder that the club is still around and that they are more than welcome to come and join us for a game. Like wise if you have friends or meet old mates invite them for a game, they can’t play soccer forever. As someone said -
“Golf is one of those rare sports where 4 generations can compete on a level footing, Great grandfather, Grandfather, Father and Son can all play “

After years of contemplating the CGC has finally taken the bold step and adopted the Golf Link handicapping system. As a result all our members have been registered with Golf Link and have been issues with a Golf Link number. You will shortly be receiving a Golf Link card, for those members who have provided us their current contact details they will be receiving their card in the mail. All other members cards will be sent to the clubs PO Box and will be issued to you in due course.
Your Golf Link number can be found next your name in the handicap table of this newsletter. You may notice that your handicap has significantly changed since your last, this is because the Golf Link system calculates handicaps slightly differently from the program we have been using up until now.
To access you handicap details on Golf Link, simply go to the Golf Link website www.golflink.com.au and enter your Golf Link number in the Handicap History box on the main page.
Having this Golf Link number will now allow you to enter eligible daily club competitions outside of the CGC at whichever club you may be playing. It has been a lot of work to get this all up and running so we hope you all appreciate this added membership benefit.

Game Report : 10th February 2013
Sandhurts Golf Club
WOW what a turn out ..... the first real game of the year saw 64 players attend the first Clublinks game of the year at Sandurst Golf Club .... and what an amazing day it was. The weather was fantastic, the host club accommodating and apart from a few hiccups at the end a great day was had by all. I must applaud all our members and guests for a timely and organised start to the day, almost every group teed of on or ahead of time.
This game was the qualifier for this years matchplay competition and it saw the top 16 scores from the day go through as seeded players and receive a bye in the first round.
The day certainly went to our resident "lefty" Drago Hrastov who not only won the off the Net comp for the day but was also the off the stick winner with a score of 80, well done Drags there has rarely been a more deserving winner.
The committee was pleased to see several guests attend the game with an intention to join our merry family, thank you lads and welcome to the fold.

Welcome to our qualifying round this week, with a full booking including guests and some of our past members making a comeback and getting over their midlife crisis, finally seeing the light and hopefully enjoying hitting 110 off the stick again– isn’t that the reason why they put their golfing on hold for some time? Anyway enjoy the day and were happy to see you guys back.
Congratulations to the members that turned up to the Australia day wedding and CGC presentation night all in one proudly sponsored by the Hrastov and Jerkic families, with 15 members and 5 potential members attending this wedding it seemed like a CGC function – with all the speeches about golf and no mention about the actual wedding I was a little disappointed that I didn’t receive a trophy – I soon got over my disappointment when I was reminded that this was the wedding the club was attending – I’m not sure why the rest of members didn’t turn up because it was a great spectacle – especially watching last year’s CGC Jacman Open winner marrying our captains daughter. Congratulations to both Adam and Kristina Hrastov, also congratulations to Adam and his new (but old) father in law in winning last month’s first game at Hidden Valley – well done gents.
On another note, the AUSCRO is only a few weeks away and bookings are still open, we would ask that you see Ange regarding bookings and carts for the labour day weekend also seems like were making our 2013 Jacman Open booking for Mildura this year. Can’t wait for the response. There has been a slight change to the format of this years Masters Competition with the top 16 qualifiers going through automatically to the second round. So please enjoy the game today and listen to the competition details and how the qualifying will be conducted. Good luck.
The True Rules Of Golf - Part 1 of 4
- The game of golf is 90% mental and 10% mental.
- If you want to get better at golf, go back and take it up at a much earlier age.
- Since bad shots come in groups of three, a fourth bad shot is actually the beginning of the next group of three.
- When you look up and cause an awful shot, you will always look down again at exactly the moment when you ought to start watching the ball if you ever want to see it again.
- Any change works for a maximum of three holes and a minimum of not at all.
- No matter how bad you are playing, it is always possible to play worse
- Never keep more than 300 separate thoughts in your mind during your swing.
- When your shot has to carry over a water hazard, you can either hit one more club or two more balls.
The True Rules Of Golf - Part 2 of 4
- Golfers who claim they don't cheat, also lie.
- If you're afraid a full shot might reach the green while the foursome ahead of you is still putting out, you have two options: you can immediately shank a lay-up, or you can wait until the green is clear and top a ball halfway there.
- The less skilled the player, the more likely he is to share his ideas about the golf swing.
- The inevitable result of any golf lesson is the instant elimination of the one critical unconscious motion that allowed you to compensate for all your errors.
- If it ain't broke, try changing your grip.
- It's not a gimme if you're still away.
- Everyone replaces his divot after a perfect approach shot.
- A golf match is a test of your skill against your opponent's luck.
- It's surprisingly easy to hole a 50-foot putt when you lie 10.
- Counting on your opponent to inform you when he breaks a rule is like expecting him to make fun of his own haircut.
