Eudunda community news
Officer gives EGC
the thumbs up
Eudunda Golf Club Captain
Bistro Cheney with Police Officer Neil
Valderemao and Secretary Tim Knight
who stopped for a photo whilst showing
Neil around the course.
Eudunda’s new police officer Neil Valderemao
gave the local Golf Club the thumbs up when he
came out for a hit recently. He thought he may
take a little while to get used to the scrapes but
thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.
Time on the golf course will certainly be a priority
as far as Neil is concerned and he is looking forward
to a few Saturday afternoons off to play in the local
He was made very welcome by the Club Captain
Bistro Cheney and Secretary Tim Knight who
introduced Neil to the new allocated chipping area
between the 8th Tee Block and the 9th Hole for
players to warm up on or use at any time. Neil
also suggested for a person with limited time he
will enjoy the new practice net and putting area
to keep his eye in.
Ladies Golf Day “The Carolyn” postponed
Chairperson Fay Argent and the committee
have postponed the Carolyn Ladies’ celebration
of golf originally scheduled for June 28, due to
circumstances beyond their control and will
announce the new date later in the season. Fay is
sorry for any inconvenience and suggested that it
is the right decision to make and is looking forward
to running with the event later in the year.
Past President of Ladies Golf, Florence Knight
passed away last week.
Florence attended 14 of the past 15 JAK golf
days to present the Jack Knight Memorial Trophy
on the Sunday.
Her assistance in the last month with the ladies
rejuvenation at the club has been invaluable as to
the who’s who in Women’s golf over the years. She
shared that winning the Maxine Cup was never
really in her reach as she had had 10 children
when the inaugural winner was announced but she
did enjoy mixing with the ladies every Wednesday
afternoon for a game and a rest from the children.
Eudunda Golf Clubs members know that Florence
would want the JAK to continue and grow along
with the Carolyn for the ladies in the future.
Club Captain Bistro under the guidance of the
Chairperson Fay and Treasurer Lynley has made
sure there is an obvious presence for ladies on the
course by setting up new Tee Blocks for the ladies
along with the fairway markers indicating at least
that ladies are very welcome on the Eudunda Golf
A lovely Cup was found in the back of a cupboard
and when polished it really sparkled as if to remind
the ladies that through the game of golf a wonderful
time was had together with much laughter and
tales of the day’s play.
This cup was known as the Maxine and the
names on it are an indication of the ladies who
graced the course with their presence.
Chairperson Fay has asked for any photos of
years gone by on the Eudunda Golf course or club
room. They will be really appreciated and copied
The last working bee was a great success.
The committee are suitably impressed with the
development of the new look and the comments
and the addition of numbers assisting in making it
happen will make the course even more enjoyable
to play. Everyone is very welcome. Next week’s
working bee is at 2pm on Sunday, come along and
assist in making the golf course the jewel of the
town and not one of its hidden treasures.
Next week’s game is the Captain’s choice on
Saturday June 20 for a midday start.
Golf Tip of the week: Curators comments
“Pruning trees to improve airflow and provide better
turf quality will assist in the fact grass needs light
to grow.” This will also assist in reducing fungicide
and is very noticeable as the course looks so much
more inviting. Besides all that it makes it so much
more enjoyable to play.
Eudunda Robertstown Southern Saints B Grade
side had another reason to celebrate their match
Not only did the team come out in front with
a 75 point win against the Min Man Eagles but
veteran player Jamie Van Den Ham ran out on the
field to play his 200th game.
Jamie played for Eudunda before the Club’s
amalgamation. He is a role model for younger
players, often offering encouragement and support.
Showing no signs of slowing down, he is a key
player in the side with his name often listed in
the best players.
