Captain’s Report It is with pleasure that I present this report to all members and stakeholders of this wonderful golf club – the Club of Choice in South Australia. I am encouraged to know that there is a surge of support from many members who feel a positive change in attitude around the clubhouse.

Whilst the Committee is excited about the future, there is no doubt that this year has been one of the most challenging in the Club’s 82-year history. Changes in management personnel and staff, major development and construction work have dominated the attention of the Committee and staff. However, we have also had to deal with the ongoing challenges associated with the Club and Company relationship throughout the year. At the same time, and we hope you agree, we have not taken our eye off our focus to make Glenelg the best value golfing package in Adelaide. One highlight, early in 2008, was the performance of the golf course in the national rankings released by Australian Golf Digest in their biennial Top 100 Australian Golf Courses. Glenelg

was one of only a few courses to rise up the rankings substantially, jumping 23 places from 69th to 46th. This placed Glenelg Golf Club in the top 50 rated golf courses in Australia for the first time in well over ten years. In March, the golf course withstood the debilitating heatwave that saw Adelaide suffer from 15 consecutive days of temperatures over 35 degrees. Despite some issues with the Club’s bores throughout the early part of 2008, our dedicated maintenance staff were able to present the golf course in outstanding condition. However, it did highlight issues associated with reliance upon only one suitable source of irrigation water and confirmation of the importance of the ASR wetland project to the Club’s long term sustainability and survival. Previous committee members, so it seems, were more than correct in going down this expensive but necessary path to ensure the Club’s viability into the future. Also in March, the Club lost its General Manager of almost 6 years when Jeff Zadow announced his resignation to

take up the equivalent role at Lake Karrinyup in Perth, Western Australia. Jeff’s contribution to the golf club throughout his tenure was outstanding with strong strategic planning and financial performances being the backbone of his management style. Jeff was the driving force behind planning of the Clubhouse redevelopment project and his efforts will finally be realised once work is completed in March 2009. I am sure that he will be justifiably proud of his time at our wonderful Club. After a thorough two month national recruitment campaign, the Club announced the appointment of David Brand to the role of General Manager in May.

Screw piles being driven into the ground to form foundations for Clubhouse extensions

The recruitment process attracted a field of 68 candidates across most states of Australia and generated interest from Asia, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK. Eleven candidates were short listed and underwent a thorough behavioural style interview process. From there, a short list of four candidates were invited back to be interviewed and deliver a formal presentation to the selection panel. David is a previous employee and has been an active and highly successful playing member of the Club for a number of years. He demonstrates a great deal of passion and enthusiasm for both the Glenelg Golf Club and the game of golf in general and we wish him the very best for a long and successful career at the Club. He has already shown great leadership style and the positive comments from many long term members only confirms that his appointment was the correct one. The Club suffered a significant loss mid-year when our popular and long-serving House Manager, Martyn Kinsman, was admitted to hospital in July for surgery

Excavation work being carried out on the 15th & 16th holes for the ASR development

to remove a tumour from his spine. The recovery time and rehabilitation process involved following this delicate surgery resulted in Martyn taking out an extended period of sick-leave from the Club. We are pleased to report that he is making substantial in-roads into his rehabilitation and we are looking forward to his possible return sometime during 2009. As a result of Martyn’s absence, a restructure of the Hospitality departments was necessary to ensure the Club continued to offer excellent service to members, guests and function clients. Our Functions Coordinator, Karen Fry, was given the opportunity to take on the role of acting House Manager and through difficult times, managed to deliver some excellent results. Many new initiatives were introduced by Karen and still remain in place, offering similar, yet improved levels of service and choice for members and guests. The Club faced one if its greatest threats in June when the Valuer General revised its land valuation of the property owned by Glenelg Golf Links Ltd (the Company) and used by Glenelg Golf Club (the Club) under a lease agreement signed in 1998. The Club has always paid the Company’s liability in the past. Due to the recent strength of the property market and the sale of Cheltenham Racecourse for housing, the land on which our golf course sits became highly valuable overnight. As of 1st July 2008, the Capital Value of the land increased to a staggering $8,570,000, with a Site Value of $7,200,000. This was an increase of almost 350% from the previous valuation and posed a significant threat to the survival of the Club. As a result of the increased land valuation, the Club now faced the prospect of massive increases to council rates, water rates and

Page  | Glenelg Golf Club Inc. | 2008 Annual Report


Page 10 | Glenelg Golf Club Inc. | 2008 Annual Report land tax. Council rates charged by the City of West Torrens increased from approximately $12,000 to $45,000, whilst Land Tax payable to the State Government increased from approximately $45,000 to $240,000. Long term negotiations between the Club and the Company continue with increased urgency to discuss possible options that could resolve the ongoing issues associated with the Club/Company relationship. I am encouraged that both parties continue to work closely together to review all options available. The Club immediately lodged an objection with the Valuer General to have the valuation reassessed. Whilst no progress was made in this department, we would like to thank Club member, Malcolm Barton, who put a lot of time and effort into the Club’s objection. We are still awaiting a response from the Valuer General, expected in early 2009. The Club also sought legal advice from an independent solicitor on solving the Club/Company structure and relationship. Campbell Rankine was engaged to investigate options available to obtain the benefit of the exemption from land tax, that the economic rights of Company shareholders are maintained at all times, and that the process is undertaken in a way that did not crystallise substantial stamp duty or capital gains taxes. Whilst significant progress was made, this advice had not yet been finalised by the end of 2008,

and it is hoped that a solution will be put to the Club and Company in early 2009 for their approval. In April 2008, the first holes were dug on our multi-million dollar Clubhouse redevelopment. For the remainder of 2008, work continued on rebuilding the lower level members’ locker rooms, entry foyer and buggy storage area. In addition, works to extend the Conference Room, the Golfers Bar and Balcony, and Dining Room balconies were carried out. A project team made up of Club representatives, Coffey Projects, Kennett builders, Energy Architecture and a range of consultants worked collaboratively to manage this difficult project. Sam Koukourou and David Brand worked closely with the project team on a daily basis to ensure the project was carried out to the high expectations of the Club. Tony Martin and Helen McMutrie also formed part of the Clubhouse Working Group, given the difficult job of selecting colour schemes and reviewing design changes as the project progressed. The budget for the Clubhouse redevelopment project was approved in early 2008 by the Committee of Management at $2.8million, with every expectation this would increase due to the nature of the works. Once completed in March 2009, the cost of the project will exceed $3.2million. It is important to note that whilst some cost increases resulted from latent

conditions and construction contingencies, a significant percentage will be as a result of ongoing improvements to the design and extent of the project that will not only benefit members but we are confident will provide increased profits from external functions and conferences. Additional works to be carried out as part of the project include: » Roof replacement; » Carpet replacement throughout the upper level; » New furniture for the Members Lounge, Foyer, Golfers Bar and Balcony; » Extensive civil works across the front of the Club to accommodate a cart path and garden beds; » Changes to the design of the Golfers Bar balcony doors; » Installation of a full audiovisual system in the Conference Room. Once completed in March 2009, there is no doubt Glenelg will have the best Clubhouse facility in South Australia, offering a fresh new look, greater opportunities for utilisation, increased buggy storage space for members, increased profits from external functions and conferences, and one of the best casual Golfers’ Bar & Balcony areas in Australia.

Finance Our 2008 financial result again indicates a very successful year, despite the significant interruption to course and clubhouse utilisation as a result of the ASR and Clubhouse redevelopment projects in progress throughout much of the year. Notwithstanding this, the majority of operational areas exceeded budget and in most cases were surprisingly comparable to the previous years’ results. I am sure this is due to the terrific support by loyal members of the Club. The Club posted a Net Operating Surplus of $564,032, up from $442,033 in 2007, with total Equity increasing by the same amount to $4,312,457 The cash position of the Club remains strong, with $1,215,072 in the Club bank account as at 31st December 2008, compared with a previously budgeted figure of approximately $600,000. The Club had drawn down the full $1,200,000 of the 1997 Clubhouse loan, and only $1,500,000 of the Club’s new finance facility. A further $750,000 remains to be drawn. The Clubhouse redevelopment and ASR wetland projects had a substantial impact on the Club’s cashflow in 2008. As at 31st December 2008, $2,051,265 had been committed to the Clubhouse redevelopment whilst a further $475,880 had been committed to the ASR wetland project. A further $1,300,000 remains outstanding on the

Continued strong demand for membership, which should lead to better clubhouse utilisation in the coming years, provided a significant increase in Membership income for 2008. In addition, recent changes to membership structures, affordability, eligibility, flexibility and member focus should also enhance future membership demand and participation. Our recent rise in the course rankings, up 23 places to 46th in Australia, has clearly been reflected in the performance of Match, with increased visitor and corporate golf day activity resulting in strong green fee income. Bar and Catering profits were adversely affected by the Clubhouse redevelopment project with some loss of trade from functions. No conferences were booked throughout the duration of the redevelopment work and there were very few day-time functions except in the lead up to Christmas. The popularity of our venue for weddings continued to remain strong with 44 receptions held in 2008. Additional resources and extra costs associated with unexpected staffing issues also had a significant impact on the performance of the hospitality departments.

Course

2008 will go down as one of the most significant in the Club’s history as it will be remembered as the year the Club secured a long term, high quality water source for the golf course that also meets the demands of the community and environment for stormwater harvesting and reuse. Without doubt, the Aquifer Storage and Recharge (ASR) System has been the biggest development on the course for many years, but not only has the construction of the wetland system served a functional purpose, it also promises to enhance holes 15, 16 and 17 enormously, adding significant strategic and aesthetic values to this section of the golf course.

New Practice Range Gazebo, associated landscaping and paving

A great deal of credit must go to our Course Architect, consultants and staff for the planning that has seen the integration of the wetland system so successfully with the course; something which was possible through a solid working relationship with the ASR project management team and engineers. The ASR system will not be able to inject water into the underlying aquifer system until wetland plants have matured sufficiently to perform their function of filtering water to a suitable quality, but in the meantime, water can be harvested directly from the wetland for irrigation if required. A landscape contractor will be responsible for the maintenance

of the wetland for two years, and in that time, the operation of the infrastructure associated with the testing, injection and extraction of water will be fine-tuned to improve operational efficiency for our staff in the future. The ASR scheme will potentially see more water injected into the aquifer than extracted for irrigation, so members can be assured that the financial investment to date, and into the future, to manage this system, is vitally important for the Club’s future.

Summary of Major Course Works for 2008 » Excavation of 8th tee lake

» Construction of mounding, removal of Casuarina trees and planting of Pine trees between 8th & 9th fairways » New Irrigation systems on 14th, 15th & 17th holes » Redevelopment of Practice Range teeing area » Landscaped mounding and new bunker complex on 5th hole » Reconfiguration of 17th tee, and integration of ASR wetland into course layout

The total cost of the ASR project will be approximately $2.4 million upon completion of the 2-year maintenance period. The project has been overseen by the State Government’s Natural Resource Management Board, and funding is evenly split between the Federal and State Governments, and the Club. As promising as the ASR scheme is, the Committee of Management is mindful of the uncertainty associated with water supply in the future and regulations associated with it. Discussions commenced with SA Water in 2008 to reinstate a connection to recycled effluent water (either from the Glenelg to Adelaide Pipeline, or from a separate connection). This would assure water supply from two sources, and see the golf course irrigated entirely from recycled water, fulfilling our commitment to sustainable environmental management.

Course staff have again been extremely busy in 2008, not only contending with the ongoing drought conditions, but also coordinating work associated with the ASR wetland project, Clubhouse redevelopment and driving range improvements. New irrigation systems and associated satellite control infrastructure were installed on the 14th, 15th and 17th holes and around the Clubhouse gardens and lawn areas using the latest technology to ensure responsible water usage in these testing times. A significant amount of work was carried out to reinstate areas around the 15th, 16th and 17th holes damaged through the construction of the ASR project. This included a new 17th carry, mounding adjacent the 15th and 17th fairways, the reconstruction of fairway bunkers, and the commencement of reconfiguration work around the 17th tee to accommodate the ASR pump system and wetland design. Staff were heavily involved in the coordination of the ASR control system installation and commissioning. The Practice Range teeing area received a well deserved upgrade to integrate the new Gazebo and gardens into a much more practical area for members. Again, positive comments from members seem to confirm this costly but necessary improvement. Work on the 8th and 9th holes included the deepening of the 8th tee lake, the construction and

An opportunity arose in early 2008 to make use of the considerable amount of fill excavated from the ASR project for construction of mounding along the left of the 5th fairway. Over 15,000 tonnes of sand was transported from one side of the golf course to the other to help alleviate the very necessary issue of ball escape along the boundary fence. A new fairway bunker complex was integrated into the mounding, whilst new pine tree plantings, when established, will allow for much of the untidy vegetation along the fence to be removed. In the long term, it is our goal to make it more attractive to neighbours whilst maximising safety – a balance difficult to obtain but one we are committed to complete.

surfaces and presenting the course as well as they have. This year we farewelled four valuable team members with over 65 years combined experience from our course staff, with the loss of Erica Rees (Vegetation Officer), James McDonald, Dylan Caldwell (Qualified Greenkeepers) and Erik Lutke-Schipholt (Turf Equipment Technician). We thank them all for their invaluable contribution to the Club, and wish them all the best with their future endeavours. We have since welcomed Peter Foreman (Course Foreman) from Metropolitan Golf Club in Melbourne, Simon Grieve, Perry Harvey (Qualified Greenkeepers), Matthew Sugg (Apprentice Greenkeeper), and Will Sadler (Turf Equipment Technician).

Member Focus

Our pine tree replacement program continued through 2008 with over 100 new pine trees planted throughout the golf course. Many hundreds more will be planted over the next few years.

Activities in 2008 were dominated by a shift in focus by the Club towards a more Club orientated environment, offering more affordable and flexible membership options yet still maintaining the importance and attractiveness of the Club’s core membership categories.

Throughout the year, there have been continuous disruptions to the irrigation system, reducing its capacity significantly. When coupled with another dry year with only 339mm of rain compared to an average of 451mm, our course staff have done an outstanding job of providing the quality of playing

The Membership and Member Focus Working Group met regularly throughout the year focusing on the restructuring of membership categories, to provide flexibility and affordability, and the provision of quality member services.

Junior & Intermediate membership entrance fees were reduced substantially in an effort to minimise the worrying decline in new Junior and Intermediate members joining the Club. Entrance fees for Junior members were reduced to 25% of the full entrance fee, whilst Intermediate members now pay 35%. The entrance fee had increasingly become a major stumbling block when trying to promote Junior membership to parents. As a result, there was an increase in new Junior members joining the Club during the latter part of 2008 and this trend has continued into 2009. Playing rights for Intermediate members were amended to match that of Junior members, thereby carrying similar entitlements for young members through to the age of 23, at which point they transfer to either Provisional or Full membership. The playing rights of male Provisional members on Saturday were again revised, with changes made to enable them to play anytime after 12:30pm all year round. Provision was also included to allow play between 12:00pm and 12:30pm if the tee is free and the 14-hole Provisional competition was abandoned. Social membership costs and entitlements were modified to promote the category once again as a great introduction to the Club and to encourage more people to make use of our fantastic clubhouse facilities, whilst a PGA member category will be introduced in 2009 for

The Membership & Member Focus Working Group reviewed changes made to Absentee membership in 2007, noting the playing rights offered were restrictive and did not provide sufficient flexibility. Feedback had also been received saying subscriptions were too expensive. As a result, the policy was changed to allow Absentee members to play up to six games per year, at Social green fee rates and at times applicable to their respective categories. Subscriptions were reduced to 20% of the respective category, with all other guidelines remaining in place. Several membership incentive programs were implemented in 2008, with a new member incentive offered to any member proposing a new person for membership. A loyalty bonus will be introduced in 2009, giving all members who reach the milestones of 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 years’ membership a one-off “Wallet” bonus of an equivalent cash amount to be spent at the bar or bistro. A thorough review of the policies relating to Full, Provisional and Weekday membership categories was carried out in December. Accordingly, quotas were increased in Full and Weekday categories, and decreased in the Provisional category in the first steps toward the elimination of the Provisional membership category.

Page 16 | Glenelg Golf Club Inc. | 2008 Annual Report The Committee of Management acted decisively in December when it approved a recommendation from the Membership and Member Focus Working Group to introduce entrance fee instalment plans for new Provisional members joining after 1st April 2009. The Committee felt it was necessary to ensure every possible opportunity was given to new members wishing to join the Club, despite the impact on our cash flow. By far, the outstanding success of 2008 was the Women’s Try Golf Program. Over 250 women registered to be a part of the 5-week program for beginners. Unfortunately, only 90 could be involved in the 2008 program, with two more programs planned for 2009 for the remaining 160 women. However, it showed the amazing pool of potential Club members currently sitting untapped in the local community. In 2009, the Club plans to introduce more activities and opportunities for these women, encouraging them to take up the game of golf and make use of the Club’s excellent facilities.

House The Food and Beverage departments faced ongoing disruptions throughout 2008 with staffing issues and the Clubhouse redevelopment project having an expected negative impact on revenue and net profits. In the first three months of the year, 42 conferences were held

Vandals break into temporary cart storage and take 4 carts on joyrides, with one cart driven into the 1st lake

at the Club before construction work commenced in April. Many bookings were turned away throughout the year, however it is pleasing to note that many of these clients have already booked conferences for 2009 onwards. The Club continued to be a popular Wedding reception venue, with 44 held in 2008. There were two cancellations as a direct result of the redevelopment work. This compares with 47 in 2007 and 46 in 2006. Another 117 functions were also held at the Club throughout 2008, slightly up on 2007 bookings. Total net profit from Bar and Catering was just over $130,000, significantly less than the $295,000 net profit reported in 2007. Much of this can be attributed to the ongoing disruption faced by the Clubhouse redevelopment project, which affected trade for 9 months of the year. No daytime conferences or functions were booked during this time. Bar sales were down by approximately 6% on 2007 performances, whilst Catering sales were down by almost 8%. However, the loss of Martyn Kinsman mid-year created a large hole in the management and operations of the Bar and Catering departments, resulting in significant increases to employee costs for the remainder of the year in an effort to maintain the level of service offered to members and guests.

A restructure of the hospitality departments commenced after the extent of Martyn’s recovery time was known, resulting in the appointment of Karen Fry to Clubhouse Operations Manager and Craig Jeffery to Executive Chef. In addition, Phil Day was appointed to the role of Bar Manager and Daniel Nettlebeck to 2nd Chef. A number of friendly new casual staff were also hired. These appointments offered some stability and professionalism to the performance of the hospitality departments in the latter part of 2008.

Among some of the many changes implemented in 2008 included the installation of a new point of sale system, the acquisition of an espresso coffee machine, uniforms for all bar and catering staff, new wine and pint glasses, new menus for tables and new stock lines such as Corona beer. I am sure that all members join me in wishing Martyn a speedy recovery – we miss him very much.

Match The match program was very busy and successful for the Club and its members in 2008. In March, the two bodies responsible for overseeing golf in the State, the South Australian Golf Association and Women’s Golf SA merged to form one united body, Golf South Australia (Golf SA). Work is well underway in bringing together men’s and

women’s events under the one banner, with 2009 promising to be an exciting year with all men’s and women’s Championships, Vardon and Pennant events to be played in conjunction with each other. Glenelg took out two major team titles in 2008, winning the McMillan Shield junior matchplay competition in March and the Bonnar Cup (men’s B Pennant title) in June, with a resounding 5½ to 1½ victory over Grange. Our Women’s Grade 2 team were successful in reaching the final, but went down to Royal Adelaide in a close tussle, 3 matches to 2. Unfortunately, our Simpson Cup, Women’s Grade 1 and Junior Pennant teams failed to make the finals. In April, Glenelg was host for the 2008 Srixon Australian Women’s Stroke Play Championship, won by Grange’s Stephanie Na. Her four round total of 281 included two stunning course record rounds of 69, leading her to victory by seven shots. Our own Christine Trimmer performed well in the event, shooting a four round total of 300 to finish in a tie for seventh. Christine Trimmer had an outstanding 2008, winning the Women’s Club Championship and the State Champion of Champions, taking out the Glenelg Women’s Vardon, and shooting a sub-par round in the Riversdale Cup, earning her a Gold Laurel Wreath. Christine was also a member of the winning Glenelg team in the Rhonda Watson Brooch with Cath Symons and Jill Hodge.

Another successful Pro Am was run in April by Ron Wood, with Adtrans kindly sponsoring the $25,000 tournament along with a number of other supporters. Victoria’s Chris Gaunt won the event with a 4-under round of 67.

Adrian Wickstein was selected as Captain of the Men’s State Team in 2008 - the first time in many years that Glenelg members had been selected as captains of their respective State teams. Matt McGowan was selected in the Colts side for the interstate series held in Sydney in September. We are very proud of their achievements.

Our Trainee Professional, Sam Hughes was successful in 2008, wining the Bridgestone Trainee Invitational at North Lakes Golf Club in Brisbane.

Thaxted Park’s Jordan Sherratt won the Gliderol Brian Ferris Memorial Trophy with rounds of 65, 74 (139 – 1 under), while McCracken’s Brad Moules took out the Eric Scovell Junior Vardon trophy. Steve Leyshan won the Men’s Club Championship from defending champion Adrian Wickstein in a close match won on the 35th hole, whilst Dylan Antrobus played the game of his life to beat Jak Carter in the Club Junior Championship final. Jess Burns won the Girl’s Junior Championship. It was a successful year for our new General Manager, David Brand, who was a member of the winning Bonnar Cup side, took out the Men’s Pennant Player of the Year, won the RF Stevens Trophy and joined forces with Matt McGowan to win the Club Foursomes Championship.

Glenelg continued to have representatives, both current and former members, on PGA Tours around the world, with Tamie Durdin, Brendan Chant and Ben Hallam all playing events in 2008. By far, the outstanding performer in 2008 was Anna Rawson who played in her rookie year on the LPGA Tour in America.

Attendees on the inaugural Junior Trip to McCracken & Links Lady Bay

The Club again provided support throughout 2008 to a number of elite golf programs, with Golf SA State teams, Junior teams and members of the SA College of Elite Golf given valuable access to the Club’s outstanding practice facilities. These agreements, some commercial and some charitable, will continue into 2009 and beyond as we continue to provide the necessary support to ensure South Australia remains a leader in promoting the game of golf and its development.

Summary of the Glenelg Golf Club Foundation activities for 2008

Our own Junior Development Program was well supported in 2008 with the popular Sunday morning junior clinics continuing to introduce a number of new juniors to the game of golf. A successful trip to McCracken, South Lakes and Links Lady Bay in October dominated the

year for our Juniors with eleven attending the inaugural trip. It was a thoroughly popular trip and each player represented the Club in the best possible way. Ron Wood, Paul Gander, Melissa Wundersitz, Helen McMutrie, David Gillespie, Bob McLuckie and Jill Hodge managed the Junior program in 2008 and we thank them for their tireless efforts. Junior Development will continue to get strong support into the future.

Foundation

Club members out supporting the Women’s Pennant teams

The Glenelg Golf Club Foundation had a quiet year in 2008 with no Foundation Day held due to the ongoing clubhouse renovations. Having said that, a little over $8,500 was raised through donations from members whilst another $4,500 was earned from various fundraising events. In total, just over $8,800 was spent on Junior Golf in 2008 including payment of entry fees into Junior events and specialised training for our Junior members, coaching clinics on Sunday mornings and the McCracken/ Links Lady Bay Junior Trip. The Glenelg Golf Club Foundation Day golf event will return in 2009.

Staff No Club can be successful without great staff. The decision to appoint David Brand to fill the large hole left by the resignation of Jeff Zadow has

proved extremely successful with our key performance indicators being exceeded in most areas well above expectations. David is proving himself as a committed leader with empathy and hard work as very endearing traits amongst staff and members alike. The course staff ably led by Graham Stevens have again done a superb job under more than trying conditions to present a course that we can all be proud of. The majority of members’ comments are extremely encouraging. Glenelg is a course where you can be proud to bring a friend without fear of them finding it a push-over. I personally thank the course staff for their ongoing commitment to our great course. The hospitality staff continue to impress many members and guests whilst being ever vigilant in improving their skills to ensure top level service as they are acutely aware that they are on the front line for a total experience at Glenelg. Sadly, many long serving and key personnel left the Club in 2008 with Jeff Zadow, Erik Lutke-Schipholt, Erica Rees, Dylan Caldwell, James McDonald and Craig Bright all leaving with our thanks and best wishes. I wish to acknowledge their dedication and commitment over the years. Ron Wood and his staff have a critical role in providing members and visiting golfers with the level of service commensurate with Glenelg’s status in the golfing community, and their efforts are much appreciated.

Committee

It is hard to know where to begin as there have been so many strong performances over the year from members on your committee. The most encouraging words came from within by one enthusiastic committee member who stated “it is now a pleasure to serve – not a chore”. I hope this attitude is shared by all who served – it certainly is confirmed by me. Ian Brooks has continued his excellent service following his term as Captain and I wish to thank him for his guidance and support over the last year – we will miss him, his wisdom and experience as of April. I hope he enjoys a well deserved break and can relish in the wonderful product that he has been a part of for so long. He, along with other past Captains, I am sure, will be strong supporters to the future committees of the day. Helen McMutrie leaves us this year after a long and distinguished career on committee. I am proud to say that I served with Helen. Many of us have learned much in so many aspects of golf from her deep and passionate love and knowledge of our great game and Club. I know that Helen would have made an excellent leader within the ranks of committee but has chosen to spend more time on the course and with her husband and grand children, we wish her well. Thanks Helen. Ian Frances has also put in many long hours on general committee

as well as on specialist task groups and I thank him for his efforts. My Vice- Captain, Jim Johnson, has proved to be a more than worthy choice and will be a great leader into the future. His commitment is amazing when considering his business needs and I thank him for his hard work and thought provoking insight. Whilst I have singled out the people above, it has to be said that the whole committee has worked as one to make Glenelg the Club of Choice. Every member can hold their head high as I feel that it is a better Club due to their efforts.

Everyone was a winner following the 2008 Winery Challenge!

Supporters Once again, the Club could not operate effectively without the support and assistance received from a long list of sponsors and volunteers. It would not be possible to individually thank everyone for their support in 2008, however some deserve special mention. Graeme Bignell (Adtrans) and Warwick Lumbers (Gliderol) have supported their Club for many years by way of generous donations and sponsorship and 2008 was no different. Their support covered an array of events including the Junior Shootout, the Pro Am, the Brian Ferris Memorial Trophy Vardon event and the Owen Whitford Trophy. Others include Jim Rawson (JR’s Surf and Ski), Bridgestone, SA Brewing and Coca Cola Amatil.

Glenelg members again came out in force to volunteer in local events, including junior member, Austin Tremaine


Our volunteers faced an extensive workload in 2008 with the World Amateur Teams Championship and Women’s Try Golf Program requiring hundreds of helpers to be successful. Thank you to everyone who put their hand up to assist in these two events – in total well over 150 members were involved. As usual, many members volunteered throughout the year with a variety of duties ranging from traffic duty to envelope stuffing to drinks cart operators. Too may to name, but too valuable to ignore.

Obituary

Into the silence, we regret the loss of the following members in 2008 and extend our sympathy to relatives and friends. » John Betterman

Again, Sam Koukourou has to be mentioned for his continued efforts in regard to the clubhouse redevelopment. Without his support, David would have found the work much more difficult and would not have had the time to concentrate on the day to day running of the Club. Sam, your efforts are very much appreciated. Thank you to everyone who assisted the Club in 2008.

In Conclusion Overall, it has been a hectic but enjoyable year in which I feel we moved ahead admirably. Only time will tell how we have done but when reading back through this report it is hard to believe how much has been completed. This said, we know we have so far to go. With continued support and positive input from interested members we can only get better. As a member you should feel confident that the committee is solidly committed to making this Club “the Club of Choice”. The changes seen are just the start and I am confident that this new wave of member focus will continue for many years. I plead to all members to enjoy your upgraded and refreshed surroundings. Bring a friend and be proud of your Club – share your experience to ensure the longevity of this Club that we all love to belong to. Happy Golfing.

GLENELG GOLF CLUB INCORPORATED NOTES TO AND FORMING PART OF THE ACCOUNTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2008 NOTE 1 - STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES The financial report is a general purpose financial report that has been prepared in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards, Australian Accounting Interpretations, other authoritative pronouncements of the Australian Accounting Standards Board and the requirements of the Associations Incorporations Act of South Australia. The financial report covers the consolidated entity of Glenelg Golf Club Inc as the individual controlling entity and the controlled entity, Glenelg Golf Links Limited. The financial report of Glenelg Golf Club Inc and the controlled entity and Glenelg Golf Club Inc as an individual controlling entity comply with all Australian equivalents to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in their entirety except where compliance is not mandatory for non-corporate entities. The following is a summary of the material accounting policies adopted by the consolidated entity in preparation of the financial report. The accounting policies have been consistently applied unless otherwise stated. The financial report has been prepared on an accrual basis and is based on historical costs and does not take into account changing money values or, except where stated, current valuations of non-current assets. Cost is based on the fair values of the consideration given in exchange for assets. t U Unless l otherwise therwise stated, the accounting policies adopted are consistent with those of the previous year. Certain new accounting standards and interpretations have been published that are not mandatory for 31 December 2008 reporting periods. The consolidated entity's assessment is that there will be no impact from these new standards and interpretations. a)

Principles of Consolidation The Club controls the share capital of Glenelg Golf Links Limited. The consolidated accounts incorporated the assets and liabilities of Glenelg Golf Links Limited as at 31 December 2008 and the results of the Company for the period then ended. The effects of all transactions between the Club and the Company are eliminated in full. Outside equity interests in the results and group equity are shown separately in the consolidated profit and loss account and balance sheet respectively. The cost of acquiring shares in Glenelg Golf Links Limited have been accounted for as an interest in the land owned by that company and reflected accordingly.

b)

Financial Instruments Financial instruments are initially measured at cost on trade date, which includes transaction costs, when the related contractual rights or obligations exist. Subsequent to initial recognition these instruments are measured as set out below: Available-for-sale financial assets Available-for-sale financial assets include any financial assets that are not considered to be "loans and receivables" or held for selling in the short term. Available-for-sale financial assets are reflected at fair value. Where fair value cannot be reliably estimated, the asset is stated at its initial cost. Unreliased gains and losses arising from changes in fair value are taken directly to equity. Financial Liabilities Non-derivative financial liabilities are recognised at amortised cost, comprising original debt less principal payments and amortisation.


GLENELG GOLF CLUB INCORPORATED NOTES TO AND FORMING PART OF THE ACCOUNTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2008 NOTE 1 - STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES c)

Property, Plant and Equipment Each class of property, plant and equipment is carried at cost less, where applicable, any accumulated depreciation and impairment losses. Property Freehold land is shown at cost. Building is shown at cost less any accumulated depreciation and impairment losses. Plant and Equipment The depreciable amount of all fixed assets including building, but excluding freehold land, is depreciated on a straight line basis over their useful lives to the consolidated entity commencing from the time the asset is held ready for use. The depreciation rates for each class of depreciable assets are based on the following estimated useful lives, expressed in years: Category Administration furniture and fittings B plant Bar l t and d equipment i t Catering plant and equipment Clubhouse Building Clubhouse Other Course buildings House plant and equipment Motor vehicles Office equipment Course plant and equipment Entrance Road

d)

Useful Lives 5-11 8 11 8-11 7-11 50 7-11 4-25 8-11 5 5-7.5 4-11 15

Impairment of Assets At each reporting date, the Committee reviews the carrying values of its assets to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have been impaired. If such an indication exists, the recoverable amount of the asset, being the higher of the asset's fair value less costs to sell and value in use, is compared to the asset's carrying value. Any excess of the asset's carrying value over its recoverable amount is expensed to the income statement. Where it is not possible to determine the recoverable amount of an individual asset, the Committee estimates the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs.


GLENELG GOLF CLUB INCORPORATED NOTES TO AND FORMING PART OF THE ACCOUNTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2008 NOTE 1 - STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES e)

Employee Benefits Provision is made for the association's liability for employee benefits arising from services rendered by employees to balance date. Employee entitlements expected to be settled within one year together with entitlements arising from wages and salaries, annual leave and long service leave which will be settled after one year, have been measured at their nominal amount. Other employee entitlements payable later than one year have been measured at the present value of the estimated future cash outflows to be made for those entitlements.

f)

Subscription Income Members subscriptions are included as income in the year the invoice is raised. Subscription year is from April of the current year to March of the following year. Any subscription fees invoiced for the quarter of January to March of the following year is recognised as income of the current year. This has been treated consistently from year to year.

g)

Income Tax The Club is exempt from Income Tax in accordance with Section 50-5 of the Income Tax Assessment Act, 1997.

h)

Inventories Inventories are measured at the lower of cost and net realisable value.

i)

Course Redevelopment Expenditure Expenditure incurred on redevelopment of the course is charged to operating profit as incurred.

j)

Construction - Work In Progress Construction work in progress is stated at the aggregate of contract costs incurred to date.

k)

Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand, deposits held at call with banks, other short-term highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less, and bank overdrafts. Bank overdrafts are shown within short-term borrowings in current liabilities on the balance sheet.

l)

Comparative Figures When required by Accounting Standards, comparative figures have been adjusted to conform to changes in presentation for the current financial year.

Bank loan Hire Purchase Debentures

The Club has a Bank Overdraft facility of $19,500 and a loan facility of $2,700,000 which are secured by registered mortgages over land owned by Glenelg Golf Links Limited. At 31 December 2008, $2,700,000 of the Club's facility was utilised. $1,200,000 of the loan facilities is offset for interest purposes by the balance held in the Club's transaction account. Which means the interest on the $1,200,000 is only payable once the balance on hand falls below $1,200,000.
