2018 Representative Season

The 2018 representative season is underway once again. Our Mixed Pennants team have played 3 games leading into the mid-season break (Australia Day long weekend) and are currently tied for the lead in our division on overall matches play but second on countback when individual for and against matches are taken into consideration. To make the final series the side will need to win the last 3 matches. The remaining matches for Glenmore are away to both Strathfield and Hurstville with the final match of the season at home to Richmond in what could decide the team that progresses through to the finals.

On the 11th February, our Major Pennant side will tee off in their 2018 campaign, we have a number of new faces in the side this year with the addition of some very talented players from a neighbouring club who have joined Glenmore and are really enjoying their time with us. Glenmore are drawn together with Royal Sydney, Wakehurst and Wallacia and are looking forward to representing the club with pride and passion.

Course Improvements

Throughout winter 2017 a number of improvements were made to the course layout with the tidying up of some overhanging tree branches plus the removal of some bunkers that had become redundant due to tree growth. The opportunity for course improvements will be reviewed leading into winter 2018.

Glenmore Cup 2018

Saturday 13th January, saw Glenmore host its annual Glenmore Cup. The Glenmore Cup is a NSW Vardon Trophy event which attracts a very strong field. This year we had one of the strongest fields for many years with 72 players on handicaps of 5 or less taking part, including 44 players on handicap of 2 or less and 11 on scratch or less. The scores were once again very strong with players coming from far and wide to play at Glenmore.

The winning score for the day was 70 by Club Captain Andrew Robb, Matt Turton returned to golf after some time off to card a very good 71 in testing conditions, on 73 and tied for third were club stalwart Matt Mayers along with Scott Dowswell and 2 visitors.

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 gunshot wound in his thigh.

On 18 May 1922, Jacob, 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.)

"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." 

In 1926, plans were put in place to establish a Country Golf Club at Glenmore homestead in Mulgoa. In 1927, 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.
