The Weekly Update

07/04/2021

Hello Everyone,

I hope you had a wonderful time over the Easter long weekend and hopefully you were able to get a game or two in!

Path Works – 1st and 6th hole:
Well done to all involved in the path works now completed between the 1st and 6th holes, linking up to the 2nd tee. The new path has helped to make those holes more accessible during the wetter months.

Particular thanks to Andrew Hendry and Elliot from Hendry Building and Developments who donated their time, excavators and other equipment for the week and lead the team, ensuring the path could be completed in the short week! The Club would also like to thank Dale Philpott for his time and use of his excavator, the team at Platinum Earthmoving for the use of their vehicles, as well as the following volunteers who graciously gave up some of their spare time to complete the project:
Alan Smith, Michael Jackson, John Triffitt, Frank Tedeschi, Rob O’Hara, Mike McCausland, Irene Day, David Hepher, Ian Main and Ross Allison

Footy Tipping 2021 – with Ian Main: Round 3
Again last week we had two boilovers with Bombers and Swans winning against highly favoured teams. All those who got 7 right missed out on those two games.

I can’t give you the roster yet for Weeks 7 onwards as the AFL haven’t made up their minds yet.  Master Tipper ratings are starting to get very bunched up with only 2 points separating about half of the entries.

So to the winners:           1st  Margaret Bond  7 out of 9 and nearest margin – $39
                                             2nd  Len Healey  7 out of 9 and next nearest margin   $16
                                             Equal 3rd   Joe Fletcher and Ian Painting with 7 out of 9 and next nearest margin – $5 each

REMEMBER   Anyone can go in it. Just $2 an entry. Place entry and money into the plastic bags provided and put in the tipping box. Entry forms are on the table below the notice board just inside the door into the bar area.

Good Luck Isaac!
Good luck to Riverside member Isaac Roberts who heads to Canberra on Sunday 11th April for the Australian Junior Amateur at the Gold Creek Country Club in the ACT.  This event is conducted by Golf Australia and is a National Junior Order of Merit and World Amateur Golf Ranking Event.

The field is made up of for the first time of 78 boys and 78 girls. Competitors from all parts of Australia are playing. The format is 72-hole stroke play with a 54 hole cut (top 39 boys and girls). Go get ’em Isaac!

All the best to Mark Goodyer
This Friday 9 April is our course superintendent Mark Goodyer’s last day at Riverside. Over the last two years Mark has done a wonderful job getting the course into the great condition that it is today. Thanks for all your hard work Mark and on behalf of the Club, I wish you all the best in your future opportunities!

Beyond Blue Charity Golf Day at Riverside Golf Day
We are extremely proud to be organising a Beyond Blue Charity Golf Day to be held at that club on Friday 23 April. It is a 4-person Team Ambrose event and we are now accepting entries for teams – $200 or $50 for individuals (we can put you in a group!)  There will be some great prizes, a BBQ and drinks cart available on the day. Entry forms can be found in the Pro Shop, Bar and Office. We look forward to the event where we can help raise awareness and donations for a great cause!

Check in TAS app

As you are well aware, when you visit the clubhouse, bar or function space at Riverside you are required to check in with a QR code or on the computer inside the bar using the Covid Comply app.

From 1 May 2021, Tasmanians and visitors will be required to use the Check In TAS app when they visit a range of businesses, organisations and events – including Riverside Golf Club. That means that any member, guest or visitor that enters the clubhouse, bar or function space will be required to check in using the app.  The new system has now been implemented, so you will need to complete the following when you next visit the Club.

  • Download the Check in TAS App from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
  • Register your details (required for the first time only).
  • Open the app, select ‘check in now’ and hover your smartphone camera over the venue’s displayed QR Code.

Friday Arvo Junior Competition: Launching Friday 9 April
On behalf of the Riverside Golf Club Junior Committee, we are very proud to announce a new casual cadet/junior member competition each Friday afternoon at 4pm. It will include a 3-hole challenge on course and a fun competition on the putting/chipping green when your round has finished! We would love for you to join us – starting this Friday 9th April

As this is new to Riverside, we will need to see how this grows over time. The competition will start at a casual level with the intent of creating a feeder program into our official competitions on the weekend! There will be no expectations of attending every week and there is no pressure to ‘compete’ – it’s more about getting our upcoming superstars out on the golf course and enjoying this game even more!

If you require more information or are interested and would like to join us, please let me know.

Member’s View:
If you have any special images that you may have captured on course, don’t forget to send them through to my email – manager@riversidegolf.com.au – I would love to feature them in the Weekly Update.

From Our Superintendent: Mark Goodyer
Since my last report we have sprayed bunkers, kept up with the mowing and maintenance of the course.  This week weather permitting we will groom and dust the greens as per my plan.  Fairways are coming on well after the second coring as per my 12-month program. Now we can get back to striping the fairways for you.  As this is my last report I would like to thank my loyal volunteers for your assistance around the course and the friendship of members and volunteers over my time here.  All the best in your rounds of golf – regards, Mark.
