MCG&BC July Newsletter 2021

Winter greetings to all Marysville members. Despite the recent lock-downs and road closures due to storm events there has been some great winter weather to enjoy a round on the course.

Our thanks to Keith and Geoff for looking after the course so well whilst Kellan has been on leave. Thanks also to Bob and Jim for their work around the course, and Jillian and Peter's work in the gardens and around the car-park. Lloyd's maintenance on the clubhouse is much appreciated.

The Club is very excited to confirm that the two new Toro mowers -a fairway mower and a greens mower have been delivered, we will arrange a day to present them to the members. This is a huge investment for the Club and will under-pin our capacity to present the course well into the future. The new course works utility, a Toyota HiLux 4 x 4, will be delivered shortly. This will replace the existing utility which is 16 years old.

These machines have been purchased on a five-year finance -60 monthly payments and

represent a major commitment for the Club. Despite the challenges of the past 12 years and the past 18 months in particular, the Committee was comfortable making these

commitmentson behalf of the Club,based on the improved trading position, increased green fee patronage and increased membership.
