Renovations now complete and Restaurant opening Fri 24th Nov
Below is an update from the President Kevin Latham on our Club renovations and the re-opening of the restaurant & bistro:
CLUBHOUSE RENOVATIONS UPDATE
16th November 2017
Your new Club, The St Ives Club, will be ready next week. We have transformed the 50’s and 60’s style clubhouse into a modern vibrant and colourful club that you will enjoy and will attract many new members and visitors to our Club.
We have made many changes to the clubhouse including the installation of the floor to ceiling windows and doors along the western wall. This change has to be seen to fully understand the impact. In addition the feature wallpaper adds to the ambiance of our new clubhouse.
All of the major construction work has been completed and the carpet will be laid today and tomorrow. Those who come for Happy Hour tomorrow will enjoy the new Clubhouse and furniture.
The new restaurant will open on Friday 24th November for dinner service, after which it will be open for dinner Wednesday through Saturday and for lunch on Tuesday through Saturday. On Sundays they will offer a special brunch/lunch from 10 am.
We will also have a coffee station from Tuesdays to Sundays with a barista serving quality coffee and cakes and pastries. So why not stop by for some down time to enjoy the views
There will be two styles of service in the restaurant:
· Full table service where the order will be taken at the table and food will be served to the table.
· Bistro/Pub style where you order at the counter and the food will be served to the table.
There will be a separate menu for each service.
So come and experience the new Club on Friday 17th November for drinks during Happy Hour from 3:30 to 6:00 pm or enjoy the new restaurant from Friday 24th November. The phone number to make a reservation for the restaurant is 9488 9401 but the phone it will not be operational until 20th November.
McCullagh & Hurdwell victorious in Men's Handicap Pairs Final
In an exciting final played on Sunday 12th November, Gidley McCullagh & Gerry Hurdwell prevailed by a single shot over Sid Caganoff & Bob Balmer in this year's Men's Handicap Pairs competition. The final score was the narrowist of wins, 25-24. Congratulations to all finalists and full details will be forthcoming.
Men's Presentation Day, 11:30am Sat 2nd December
Our Men's Club President has asked me to highlight the following:
"Please note that this year's Men's Club Presentation Day is to be held on Saturday, 2nd December. The acknowledgement and presentation to all winners and finalists of our 2017 Men's Club events will commence at 11:30am and is to be followed by a sausage sizzle. Even if you are unable to play social bowls in the afternoon I would love all members to join us to enjoy the festivities in our, by then, newly finished and modernised Clubhouse.
The renovations and new facility are something that all members can be justly proud of and your Committee hopes that you can put this appointment in your diary as a "must do". I look forward to seeing you on the 2nd."
See you there!!
