Dear Golf Society Members,

It is with great sadness I wish to advise passing of Life Member and Past President Ian Rennick

A member at Kew Golf Club, serving on Committee for many years including time as the Treasurer, the Secretary and Captain. In 1986 he was made a Life member.

Ian joined the Golf Society in 1984 and his contribution spanned several years.

Serving as Treasurer for two years and President for four years from 2007-2011 and remained on Committee when his term finished.

He also convened the Golf Club Historians committee.

The Society is indebted to Ian’s dedicated work, researching, recording, and growing an interest in Australian golf history.

A deserving tribute to acknowledge his significant contribution is to follow.

A true gentleman who will be missed by many

Our thoughts are with his family

By Events, 2022 No Comments

Following the Doug Bachli Trophy, the 41st Annual General Meeting was held

A meeting with some significance as President Graeme Ryan and Honorary Secretary Kim Hastie both finished their terms, having served the maximum six years in their roles.

Following Graeme’s final President’s report outgoing Secretary Kim read the election results declaring herself as the new President, Grace Rew re-elected as Treasurer and Stella Cugley was elected and warmly welcomed as the new Honorary Secretary.

For the Committee positions Greg Bain, Morag North, and John Scheffer were re-elected and Aaron Newnham who was co-opted to Committee to fill vacancy was elected to Committee.

Kim congratulated those elected and introduced the Committee to the meeting.

Thanks, and gifts were given to Graeme and Kim for their many years of dedicated work for the Society.
