With the cancelation of the Holden Scramble this year, a new event was played for the first time between the Bowlo and The Heads clubs. The event comprised teams of four playing nine holes of golf, followed by twelve ends of bowls. The day was an outstanding success and there’s talk around the traps of holding the event twice per year.
The team of Nathan Flavell, Karina Davis, Luke Saare and Peter Saare were too strong and took out the winners prize.

Keenan Hobbs, the new Course Superintendent, commenced work at Shoalhaven Heads Golf Club yesterday. He is currently undertaking a handover from Tony Orford and is looking forward to a seamless transition into his new role. Keenan will also be an active club member as he not only enjoys the game, he finds playing the course assists with planning its maintenance and improvements.
Keenan is a local having grown up in Gerringong while attending St Peter & Paul Primary School and Kiama High School. He now lives in Berry with his wife Karyn. Keenan is looking forward to working close to home, having worked for the past eight years at Wollongong Golf Club.
Keenan brings a depth of experience having worked in the role of course superintendent at Wollongong for the last three years. He appreciates the good shape our course is in and will take a steady hand to maintaining it (if its not broke dont fix it). He is also keen to be involved in its further development and to help the club continue to grow.
We wish Keenan every success in his new role at The Heads golf club. If you have not already met Keenan please make yourself known and welcome him into our club.
