WELCOME to the Wednesday Afternoon, Building Construction and Maintenance, South Area, Hackers Golf Club.
The Club was conceived when Michael Rose joined a
group of Chipping Norton based clerics (Paul Horinek, Trevor Eustace,
Gary Evans, Bob Whittaker and Ray Mouwad) in their weekly ritual of
playing golf after work at the former East Hills Golf Course (now
Riverlands). Following a successful squash competition, Michael was
prompted to formulate a golf competition, which from its inception has
had no shortage of players. The first trophy was purchased and the
Winter 85 Competition was underway. This Competition and those that
followed were all held over 24 rounds and a committee was elected to
administer each competition for the club.
Although the Competition rounds are now shortened, the original concept has and will remain the same. In 1987, the then residing President, Allan Black introduced regulations to align the club with others, by electing a committee annually. The regulations are the combined effort of all Committees to date, where changes, to the benefit of members.
The Club has grown at a pleasing rate since 1985 and it's membership consists of many and varied occupations within the present Department of Commerce and former Public Works Department.
A tradition of awarding "Fanny of the Fairway" evolved in 1989. CLICK HERE to view an explanation of the award and archive of certificates.
The Club is proud of its foundations and the
comradeship it has evoked over the years. It would be a courageous
Committee that would attempt to alter any of this heritage.
The regulations have always been tongue-in-cheek although they are intended to enable certain standards to be set. Members should not hesitate to consult the President when confronted with a problem regarding same, whereby their elected Committee will endeavour to be of assistance.
A special acknowledgement should go to those that have assisted the club in the past and present:
