NOTICES

THE CAPTAIN'S LOG

John Constance

Argh....

Only a small field of 13 [including a prospect] due to the next day Cutlass Challenge.  

The year is fast coming to an end so it would be good to see big turn-outs over the last couple of weeks before we get into the silly season.

 

Cutlass Challenge – We lost! It came down to a countback after all the matches won/drawn were equal – it was decided on the number of holes won overall, 72 Western Pirates to 69 Freo Pirates – we missed it by that much! Great effort to everyone who played – it was another great battle with those scurvy dogs from up North. We should acknowledge our Donald Wilson for organising the Freo Pirates – it takes a lot of work. Well done Donald.

 

To update:

Our Wind-Up/Presentation night 13th Dec – fast approaching – Pirate theme – see JC with your names and money. 

Consistency Award runs through to Dec 12th which will be the last game to acquire points.

Pirates Presentation Dinner & Windup: Sunday 13th Dec from 6pm – Only 2 weeks away – your windup this year is being held at Limones Restaurant Bicton – 1 Point Walter Road – we have the whole venue to ourselves with permission from the owners to make as much noise as we like and stay as long as we like. This is a great venue fully licenced with very good food and drink [no BYO] – the club is generously subsidising the costs and will also be putting money on the bar – cost to all is only $40 p/p that’s for members and partners, and any guests. We would like to see up to 60 attend so feel free to invite family/friends - $40 is a great deal for quality food and beers and wines not to mention your few drinks will be on the club. The club band ‘Mutiny’ will come out of retirement. There will also be a Lucky Door Raffle for great prizes as well. Everyone gets a ticket. So lock in the date and organise your partner/family to come along – JC will be taking names and money for this event from hereon.

Good golfing everyone

Captain JC

So you say you know the rules.

Of course everyone believes you, but why not try this R&A quiz (in the privacy of your own home).

You may be surprised.....

Fremantle Pirates are:

An incorporated body, with official Golf Link handicaps.

Playing in friendly competition every Saturday, teeing-off at 10:00 AM at the Marri ParkGolf Course

We are a group of amateur weekend golfers who consider Golf to be serious fun.

Real Golf. Real course. Real competition.

Cheap. Minimal commitment - play or not play as you choose.

New members, male and female, will be made very welcome.

Our members have the option of competing in a variety of Golf WA tournaments at other golf courses.

 

Our annual membership fee was confirmed at the 1st Feb 2020  AGM at $80.

This covers our affiliation fee to GolfWA, and a fee for GolfLink handicap services.

The balance goes to the club to cover its administration and promotion expenses. From 1st August each year, this fee is reduced to $50. We allow a maximum of three rounds to be played as guests.

Note that green fees are payable separately to the course operators, or are included in tournament fees when you choose to play in a sanctioned event.

The tariff at Marri Park Golf Course is $40 for 18 holes on a Saturday.
