Captains Corner 2018 Summer Edition

Welcome back to our 71st year of the Fairway Club, still the oldest social golf club in Victoria & maybe Australia, established in 1947!

At the end of last year, the committee for 2018 was elected by members and are:

President – Neville Clements

Captain – Paul Wilson

Secretary – Mike Hedge

Treasurer – Warren Moore

Handicapper – Barry Long

Assistant Handicapper – Andrew Erskine

Committee – Ray Cook, Matt Dobson, Keith Seabrook

Web Master – John Blackman

A huge thank you to outgoing President Warren Hannah & Secretary Ron Spratt for their time & effort over the last 10-12 years, words can’t describe how much it’s been great working with you both.

This year the committee is working together on respecting each other & the courses we play.

It’s fair to say there isn’t to many social clubs that can play on the best courses in Melbourne & the Mornington Peninsula.

The club also has again been sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, Berwick for the 5th year, a big thanks to all the members & friends who purchased vehicles from Craig Howard & his team.

This was held at Yarra Yarra recently with 16 guests enjoying there day as potential members, (remember any new members must play with the President & Captain at least once for approval).


Club Championships 2018  

The Club Championships this year will be played over 3 weeks from Mon 19th Feb-Long Island, Mon 26th Feb -St Andrews Beach, Mon 5th March-Cranbourne.

All rounds are STROKE & NET in all grades i.e.: Club, B, C, Seniors (over 60).

You must have paid your annual subs ($150.00) to play in the Clubbies.

Across the Bay Challenge

The annual “Across the Bay Challenge” this year is at Torquay Sands Resort on Sunday 8th April with the club’s day Monday 9th April at Thirteenth Beach.

Please see Marty Merrilees or Allen Pennell regarding information for the trip. Numbers filling up fast, so you don’t want to miss out!


A couple of members (No Liver, Kanga, Monty) have been in the sick bay recently & are recovering well, they’ll back on the course soon watch out!

As our Past President/Captain & Life Member in Ben Sudano says “It never rains on a golf course in Melbourne on a Monday”

See you all on the course

Captain Pauly
