2016 Mixed Pennants - The mixed Pennants season is off and running when they took on Gordon at home on Sunday, Jan 10th. Overall it was a great win for the home side and some good first round scores, with the final result was a win to Glenmore 4 to 1 and a half. On Jan 17th, we took on Bankstown at home and right fromt he start the team performed well, knuckling down and showing true grit and determination to get up in the end. We won 3 and a half to 1 and a half.  Sunday Jan 31st saw a determined Glenmore side, who were keen to turn around the loss they had the previous week against Bexley, travel to Gordon to take on Gordon for Round 4 of the Mixed Pennants. Glenmore went down fighting  3.5 to 1.5 in the main matches while the reserves had a solid win. After 14 holes the matches were close enough for either side to get up, with 3 matches going to the 18th to get a final result which unfortunately went Gordon's way. 

Course Improvements - During January, the greens were fertilised, topdressed, and sprayed with primo and insecticide. The fairways were sprayed for Summer grass and greens also were spot sprayed for the same. Tees and turf around second hole bunkers were fertilised. Garden mulches were added. After the heavy rain, bunkers were drained and repaired, and fallen branches were picked up around the course. In February, the greens will be cored with mini-tynes on Tuesday, Feb 16th and topdressed. This time we are going to try and lightly topdress greens every week depending on the weather and other factors. Summer grass spraying and mulching the gardens will continue. The work to extend the 10th tee and drainage work in front of the 4th green will be carried out if the areas dry out.

Glenmore Cup 2016 - Saturday 30th January saw Glenmore host its annual Glenmore Cup. The Glenmore Cup is a NSW Vardon Trophy event which attracts a very strong field. 51 players took part this year and we had visitors from Longyard (Tamworth) to Mollymook (NSW South Coast) and many clubs in between. Cromer and Manly also sent players along as this would be an ideal opportunity for them to see Glenmore prior to the start of the Major Pennant season. The scores were pretty good although it could be argued that the golf course won on the day. Ties for the lead at the end of 18 holes were Matt Turton (Glenmore) and Simon Masters (Penrith) both players returning very good rounds of 72. 2 shots further back and tied for 3rd place were Andrew Robb (Glenmore) and Jacob Schouw (Cromer). With 2 players tied for the lead we were headed to a playoff – 3 holes (1st, 2nd and 9th) with the winner being the player who had the best 3 hole scratch score. Both players parred the 1st hole with Matt almost chipping in, Simon then edged ahead with a par on the second but it was not all over. Players headed to the 9th hole where Simon missed the green to the right leaving a very difficult up and down, Matt played a very solid shot to the middle of the green. Simon was first away, putting from about 4 feet off the green hitting a very good shot to leave himself a putt of about 4 feet. Matt then putted from about 15 feet, lipping out for birdie and finishing with par (1 over for the 3 holes). Simon then calmly struck his putt from 4 feet and holed out for a 4 to win the playoff. Great rounds by both players. Matt Turton should feel happy with his round and will no doubt be full with confidence as we head into the Major Pennants starting Sunday 7th February. Big thanks go to Rod Newell from Drummond Golf Penrith for providing two additional gift vouchers for the club to use as prizes for the Glenmore Cup.

Veterans Golf on Feb 2nd, 2016 -  What a terrific day to start back, 30 degrees and a slight breeze late in the morning, we had 34 players role up to enjoy the first game back for vets. However the course was playing very tough following the huge downpours of rain over the past week or so, combined with lots and lots of sun caused the grass to jump out of the ground.

The Winners on the day for Eclectic / Individual Stableford were:
   The First Place with 41 points was Ron Benz
   The Runner up  with 38 points was Ray Eldridge
   In 3rd place with 37 points was Timo Ervastri 

Congratulations to all of the winners!

Jacob Henry Watts, 16 October 1888 - 23 July 1947 - Jacob Watts was born on 16 October 1888 in Buckinghamshire, England. He served in World War I and suffered a gun shot wound in his thigh.

On 18 May 1922, Jaco, his wife and 4 children departed the port of London for Australia. Jacob and his family settled in Mulgoa where he worked on farms, labouring and caretaking of properties.

Jacob dies in 23 July 1947 at his home on Mulgoa Road, Jamisontown.
(Summarised extract from compilation by Christina Dawson, great granddaughter of Jacob Henry Watts on 19 March 2015.)

In 1926, plans were put in place to establish a Country Golf Club at Glenmore homestead in Mulgoa. In1927, Jacob Henry Watts, a Mulgoa resident, caretaker of Glenmore, constructed the first 9 holes, which were located around the practice area including the short game practice green, and the current holes of 10 to 14, and 17-18.

The page 18 on 'Mulgoa! Mulgoa! Where is that?' published by Penrith Art Printing Works in 1988 states,
"By 1926, plans were afoot by a Sydney syndicate, in conjunction with the Mayor of Penrith, Ald. J. Price, to purchase Glenmore from Mr. D. Hattersley - dentist - for the purpose of establishing a Country Golf Club, and, in May 1927, there plans were finalised in the official opening of the Country Club."
