The club will be launching the new PIGC website during the week commencing August 15. The new website will refresh the look and feel of the site, while retaining the information already housed within the PIGC website.
The way in which you book, and view results also remain unchanged, the only difference will be a new ‘Members’ button on the home page of the website (circled in red below). Your current login and password will remain valid for now.
We will be transitioning to MiClub early September as our golf competition software and members portal. MiClub is leading the industry for its golf competition management software. It is the preferred option for some of the biggest clubs in Australia with the likes of Royal Melbourne and Kingston Heath using this platform.
There are a few major differences with MiClub compared to our existing system. Firstly, its gives members the option to use the MiScore app to score for competitions, removing the need for physical score cards. Score cards will remain available for those who don’t want to use their phone. It allows members to register their guests online and it also has the capacity to take online public bookings.
Later this month you will receive further information relating to the move to MiClub.
Interested in golf rules? The club is looking to host a golf rules session presented by rules guru David Blake. David has toured the world refereeing at some of the biggest golf events, most recently the LIV Golf tournament at Centurion Golf Club in London. More details to come shorty.
In September the club will be commencing MyGolf programs to engage more juniors at the club. We are also in the midst of developing an all abilities Get Into Golf program. Ron Young, Morgan Ward, and Sean O’Brien are completing training to certify them as accredited delivers for these development programs.
South Gippsland Veteran Golfers Association will have the 1st round of the club championships on Monday 10th October at Phillip Island. Registration from 8.30am for 9.00am shot gun start. Entries to Rob Davidson via email only at email@example.com.
A big shout out to the ground staff and Monday boys for their continued efforts. The course is looking fantastic, it’s a shame the weather has been poor of late resulting in the back 9 being closed sometimes. Ryan and his team are continuing with the intense course improvement plan so you can expect to see ongoing verti-draining on greens. Two tees have been earmarked for renovation this spring.
New cart paths have been built on the 17th and 14th hole. The new paths, in conjunction with ongoing draining works will help keep carts on the back 9 more often during the wetter months moving forward. Remember, please keep your motorised cart on constructed paths and walk out to the fairway to play your ball.
You might have noticed the south side of the clubhouse (along Settlement Road) has been cleared away. This is in preparation for new trees that will be planted to improve the overall appearance of the clubhouse and carpark area. The club was fortunate to receive funding for new trees from the Queens Jubilee project. Thank you to Lawrence Ferrari for assisting the club with this project.
Work on the cart storage sheds near the 10th hole remains ongoing.
