They say …“what a difference a day makes” .. in this case, what a difference 6 months has made at the Club. 6 months ago we were looking forward to seeing the end of our builders, and the completion of the most significant building project the Club had undertaken in recent times.

Above, Stage 5 completed - New breezeway and Associate’s Locker Room

6 months on the additions and associated works have settled in and are functioning as planned. The breezeway has reduced the clutter of the previous breezeway and provides an entry which is both welcoming, and a standard befitting Royal Adelaide. The peripheral landscaping works have started to take hold, and together with the remodelled carparking, complete the transformation.

summer edition

Minor works are now complete to the southern end of the Clubhouse in what was the Associates Locker Room. These works include a new verandah, entry foyer, and associated amenities, with direct access to the kitchen and Mixed Lounge. The Associates Room has been renovated and is now known as “The Board Room”. The new centrally located space (formed from the footprint of the old Associates Locker Room) has been transformed , and now allows for a very special, fully glazed vista through the new foyer to the 14th hole. A wonderful space, and now named “The Bridge Room”, (which will give you a heads up as to its intended use) will provide additional flexibility to our function capabilities including conference and seminar facilities. The soft opening of these spaces will be as the players’ lounge for the Australian Women’s Open. Plans are underway for a members opening in March to bring in our 125th golfing season.

Above, Southern end redevelopment

6 months ago we were knee deep in worm castings, the likes of which we have not seen at Royal Adelaide for many years, soon to be followed by rains that only Noah would have contemplated. Course closures became a day by day proposition, an experience we have not had to endure at Royal Adelaide in living memory, in fact many commented 1992 may have been the last year of these kind of disruptions. With the delayed onset of spring, came tremendous growing conditions and the rough reached heights that you could lose a small family in. All this is behind us now, as we look forward to a great summer of golf. During November, Royal Adelaide hosted a large group of members and partners from the R&A, including the Captain Keith Macintosh, on his first visit down under. Keith was very impressed with the course and drew comparisons between Royal Adelaide and Muirfield ….high praise indeed .. and a credit to Nathan and his and his staff on the way the course was presented over the 3 day event. You will note in the Course Report, steps are underway to strengthen some of the weaker turf area of the fairways on course, which will commence after The Australian Women’s Open in February.

Most recently Hole 17A was opened. 17A is the first new hole constructed “on course” which does not form part of the routing of the Championship 18. The hole opened in idyllic conditions with a gentle breeze out of the west, but still managed to test the Members. With a stiff south westerly, our prevailing breeze, I can see tears of both joy and anguish in the play of this short par 3. The hole sits beautifully in the existing routing of the Championship 18 and we saw no evidence of queuing on the tee despite full fields. I am sure it will be not only an enjoyable hole to play, but a challenging one, and provide great flexibility for Nathan and his management of future course maintenance works. As the first project undertaken by the Royal Adelaide Foundation, 17A was entirely funded by the Foundation, so to the many who generously contributed, a great thank you, a great result, and lasting legacy.

Above, Hole 17A

Course wise, attention is now firmly on the preparation for the Australian Women’s Open. If it was held today, I think we would all be very proud, so by February the condition of the Course will be at another level again. So lock in the dates, February 16th to 19th, put them in your diary, take

DINING ROOM LEVY SEASON Don’t miss out on using your levy! As members would be aware the Club is hosting the ISPS Handa Australian Women’s Open February 16th – 19th which will entail course and clubhouse closures (Feb 12th – 20th inclusive). Therefore the Dining Room levy season will be shorter than previous years. Members are strongly encouraged to utilise the Club’s dining facilities and use any remaining levy before it expires. The Women’s Open closure will reduce the numbers of Sundays the Dining Room will be open in February to only the 5th and 26th.

and Hills courses all year and I would like to thank both Jude and those who made the effort to enjoy their golf at many other courses around the State. It is always much appreciated by the host courses and reflects well on Royal Adelaide With the sun finally shining the Associates Annual itself which in turn may encourage (and indeed, Meeting was held on Tuesday, October 25th. has encouraged!) other golfers to join our Club in Trophies galore were shared by many faces old and the future. new at the prize giving and we said a fond and very sad farewell to our wonderful outgoing President, Interclub matches were all away in the second Sally Rasmussen, and our only Committee member half of the season. Royal Adelaide players went to departing this year, Jude Willoughby (below). Glenelg, Kooyonga, Flagstaff Hill and Blackwood and, while much enjoyed by those who represented us, the silver did not return home except for the Cudmore Cup hosted by Kooyonga where there was a draw and, as we had won the match in April, we were able to put the Trophy back in our cupboard.

In early August Royal Adelaide hosted the LM Gordon Bowl as part of the Vardon series run at Adelaide Metropolitan clubs throughout the year. Unfortunately, although we had more female entrants than most other clubs we only had six women playing in this event.This is a sad reflection on the number of young women taking up golf today. If you know of anyone, young or otherwise, interested in taking up our wonderful sport please contact an Associates Committee member or Paul at the front office to learn more about the pathways (Green Girls, Let’s Go Clubbing and the Fairways Package) interested new golfers might take within our Club to ease their way into this great game. In Mid-August the Associates Foursomes Championships were played, always a fun event with much camaraderie around the Club. One qualifying round was played on a nine hole course with players going around twice to play their 18 holes. With the Foursomes taking priority other golfers were precluded from playing that day and the Committee very much appreciated the understanding of those players whose games were cancelled. Congratulations to the winners of all Grades.

Our Associate Guest Day was held on the 30th August and we were lucky enough to be able to play the full course. Following hotly on the heels of Guest Day and also enjoying a full course was the Royal Adelaide Challenge Bowl held on Friday 2nd September. First time winner of the event was Tea Tree Gully who won by the narrowest of margins over Tanunda Pines. By this stage in the season we were getting used to low scores, winners were regularly having only 30 points and average scores were in the mid or even low twenties. The course was playing very long and the rough began to be discussed by all at great length and not in a complimentary fashion! With the course in this condition we welcomed the Women’s Committees from Royal Melbourne and Royal Sydney to our annual Mona Macleod Cleek. All three Committees look forward to this event each year and despite the extra stress involved in being hosts this year, this event was no exception and lived up to expectations. Much fun and laughter was had both on and off the course with old friendships strengthened and new ones forged.We are already planning our trip to Sydney next year and making sure it doesn’t clash with other holiday plans!

While the course underwent fairway renovations during September we held our annual Duplicate Bridge Day. Numbers were down slightly on previous years but it was still a very successful day. With our old locker rooms being turned into a purpose built bridge space we hope to see a lot more bridge being played at Royal Adelaide next year. We also hope to entice back some older Associates who may have reduced their golfing commitments and haven’t spent much time at the Club of late by offering regular bridge and the opportunity to use up their dining room levies. If this is of interest to you please watch out for email notifications around bridge days early next year. As we inched closer to the end of the season the heavens opened again and our second attempt at hosting our Charity Day was cancelled. Operation Flinders was our chosen Charity and, having missed out on any support from us this year, will be our Charity again next year. Finally, the weather started to clear and our Joan Lawton Foursomes was held in relatively mild weather followed by a delicious lunch and the putting finals. And then we are back to where we started: the Associates Annual Meeting. And, suddenly, the season was over!

There is always room for a bit more golf and fun before the year end, however, and our Christmas Golf and Lunch was much enjoyed by everyone who entered. With the theme of “Giving”, Associate Committee members were on the course to “give” shots to each group as they came through, players displayed their favourite charity and everyone brought a present for a child and a Kris Kringle for an Associate. Anglicare were delighted by their horde of gifts and there were many requests from Associates to bring gifts again to donate next year.

I would like to finish with an encouragement to all to attend the Women’s Open in February. Bring your families and friends, golfers and nongolfers alike will enjoy the experience. It will be an event of international standing and, while we hope to retain it in South Australia and see it back at Royal Adelaide in three years’ time, may be once in a lifetime golfing event. Interest in women’s golf, particularly at Royal Adelaide, will be raised and as a member of this wonderful Club it falls to all of us to bring in new members. If anyone mutters anything positive about potentially taking up the game please encourage them and let them know of the opportunities and programmes we run at Royal Adelaide. By the time I address you again at the opening of the 2017 season on the 7th March, I will be a Full Category 1 Member of this Club and speaking to you as the Women’s Captain rather than the Associate’s Captain. I am excited about this long overdue change to our membership structure and look forward to as many women as possible taking up this opportunity.

Reciprocal clubs The River Club - South Africa

Royal Adelaide is pleased to announce a new reciprocal club in Johannesburg, South Africa, The River Club.

It has been a busy six months at Royal Adelaide commencing with the inaugural “firing in” of the Captain on 28th of June. This event was a great success with Tim Evans distinguishing himself driving off the third tee just as the cannon was fired.

Above,The ‘Firing In’ of The Captain

In July we had our extremely successful Mixed Club Dinner attended by over 140 people. It was great to see so many people enjoying the live music provided by The Holeproofs. The organising Committee of that event did a wonderful job and the night reflected their hard working efforts. The Club Dinner featured Wayne Phillips interviewing some of the clubs “legendary” sportsmen to the amusement of many. Numbers at this function were slightly down and we will possibly look at tinkering with the format very slightly. Once again our Mixed Events i.e. the Brock Trophy and the TG Wilson were strongly supported and continue to be popular with our members. In November we commenced the Winemakers of Seaton programme. This involves a nine hole twilight competition commencing at 4.00p.m. each Wednesday with dinner to follow. Each month the wines of one of our Winemaker Members are promoted and generally they attend one night for a wine tasting. Numbers at these

nights have been fluctuating however the feedback from those attending has been positive and we are going to continue with the program. This is a great way to introduce newcomers to competition golf in a relaxed environment and is also a very pleasant way to spend Wednesday evenings. Another new initiative of the club this year is the honor system at the Ackland Horman Pavilion on Wednesdays and Thursdays. This has been started as a service to members where you can purchase a sandwich or a snack bar etc. Please support the initiative and remember to either pay or complete the purchase sheet with your member number. In October we held an extremely successful New Members Dinner which was very well supported numbers wise and had a terrific feel about the night. It was clear that many of the new members were excited about joining our club and they were well supported by their proposers and seconders. On the 26th November we held our Annual Presentation Day and took the opportunity to open our new hole 17A with a prize of a methuselah of St Hugo wine for the nearest the pin on the new hole. Congratulations to Mike Nelson who won that prize.

That event also doubled as the presentation and wind up for the Royal Premiership Challenge and it is likely that we will stick to that format in coming years. The following day saw the inaugural Christmas Party for children. This was a fantastic event which involved pony rides, face painting, a jumping castle, a putting competition and other activities. The event was extremely well supported by

members, their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews etc. It was superbly well organised by, Lisa Pacini, Sally Rasmussen and Norma EscourtHughes and their band of helpers. As a new event we were unsure as to how it would be received and supported however it is clear that this will become an annual event on our calendar as it is a great way of introducing young people to the club. On Friday 9th December, 200 members and guests enjoyed our annual Christmas Twilight. This event is one of the highlights of our social calendar and was, as usual, a great night. Full detail of all the winners can be found on the Club website. Thank you all for your support of our functions this year.

Next year is looking like being just as busy. As well as our regular events we are hosting the Australian Women’s Open in February and we are also working hard planning a number of events to celebrate our 125th Anniversary including: • An exciting range of limited release merchandise items • An updated history book focusing on the past 25 years. • A special member Golf and Gala Dinner event on October 7th and 8th (first round of golf played at the Adelaide Golf Club was October 8th 1892) • A reciprocal event inviting our close reciprocal clubs to help celebrate reaching this milestone. Those observant members amongst the readership would have noted the new 125 years of golf logo on the front page of the newsletter and this will be featured during the year. More information around these festivities will be released during the year.

Course report Jim Sweeney & Nathan Bennett This year far from ideal weather conditions limited the renovation process and persisting cool weather has slowed the turf recovery from the renovation, allowing a couch mite to attack the weaker common couch areas, further slowing the recovery in these areas. Selecting plugging and top-dressing the areas in strategic areas has been necessary. The Committee has determined that acceleration of the Santa Anna takeover of these weaker areas will be a priority after the Women’s' Open. The costing, time frame, and potential results of the different options to achieve this are currently being assessed.

Our focus has now moved onto the Women’s Australian Open in February. All the work we do now will have an effect on the final preparation for the event. Bunker renovations will commence in January and spectator access paths around the course will progressively appear. Areas on tees will be roped off and protected so they are clean of divots for the event. Similarly the area behind the practice mat for a distance of 12 metres (a requirement of the conditions of Golf Australia) needs to be protected. Work continues to plug bare and thin areas on the fairway extensions, as a result of reshaping, throughout the course. A lot of planning and effort has gone into the shaping of the fairways, requiring the movement of many sprinklers to achieve better contrast between the fairways and rough. The adverse winter and spring weather has damaged many trees and removal of some broken and dead hanging branches is required both for visual and safety reasons.

The wetter than normal winter has resulted in stronger growth of the rough producing a taller, thicker sward. As the weather has warmed the rough has dried off and thinned out producing the contrast between rough and fairway, the visual image which has become characteristic of Royal Adelaide Golf Club heading into summer for the Nathan Bennett last few years. In addition to the striking visual Course Superintendent. appearance it is essential to minimise barren land appearing progressively throughout summer. Our green staff strives to produce the course in the best condition for members at all times. This winter has been repeatedly morale sapping for them. They have been resilient and flexible which we have appreciated and likewise the understanding of the membership has been important and appreciated by them. We thank Nathan and his staff for their ongoing effort. Jim Sweeney Chairman of Course.

Richard Mills Club Championships This year’s Club Championships were played in contrasting conditions. The brutal windy weather of qualifying Sunday was quite a battle of the elements compared to the calmer conditions of Finals Day where all the battles were between opponents. The unusually thick rough was a battle every day! Congratulations to a first time Club Champion James Wallman who held on for an exciting victory over Josh Groom at the 35th hole. It was also a double victory for the Wallman family with father Geoff winning the C Grade Championship. Congratulations to the winners of other grades:

New awards for 2016 were the Player of the Year for Wednesday, David Gilfillan and Thursday, Peter Menz.The Royal Premiership Challenge was again a strongly contested teams event with money up for grabs this year following a successful Calcutta dinner in May. Fleet Street were back-to-back grand final winners over The Seaton Sharks. The day also marked the official opening of our extra hole, 17A. Congratulations to recent winners of mixed events in 2016: Peter Ormandy and Debbie James in the Brock Trophy, John and Pam Winter in the T.G.
