Volunteer Recruitment

Volunteers are needed in the following areas:

1. Preparation for, and throughout the Summer Season. 

GROUNDS.  General light maintenance of flower beds and mowing and edging grass surrounds around the Green, around the Club House and rear grass parking lot.  The main work day is every Monday morning throughout the season. Ideally we should have about 10-12 people so we could rotate the tasks as some commitment is needed but not every week. Refreshment break, tea, coffee and goodies provided. 

GREENS.  Trainee mower operators with a view to assist with the regular Monday, Wednesday and Friday grass cutting of the green.  Usually, a team of two but ideally a team of three.  Trainee Greens Iron (roller) operator. At least once a week but ideally after every grass cutting.  Again, we should have a list of 10-12 people in total so that the tasks can be rotated and provide cover for vacations. These operators can also be introduced and trained in the use of machines that are not used every week. These machines are all selfpropelled and relatively easy to use.

2. Regularly throughout the summer season and occasionally during the winter season. 

SOCIAL/KITCHEN.  The function at present of the Social/Kitchen is to provide tea, coffee and goodies during Club and Open Competitions from approximately 9.00 am to 2.00 pm. The volunteers working a rota system.  Volunteers will be needed as follows- 

  1. One Volunteer to take on the position of Social Director.  This is a Board position and basically is a member able to oversee the overall running of the kitchen, supervising volunteers, organzing the restocking of supplies and general kitchen cleanliness. Volunteers can be utilized to assist with these tasks. 
  2. Volunteers to assist taking part in a rota system for preparing tea, coffee and goodies when required.  Volunteers to occasionally operate the BBQ’s at nominated Open Competitions.  Generally, lunches will be Brown Bag supplied by the competitors. 

GENERAL CLUB, GREENS/GROUNDS MAINTENANCE.

Volunteers willing to assist with occasional extra work around the clubhouse, grounds and greens.  Tasks include painting, cleaning, equipment and building maintenance and greens marking for competitions. Ideally there would be a 10-12 volunteers to call on as this could be at short notice with information circulated via the Web Site.
