The results of the first Murdoch Pines Golf Cup


The Murdoch Pines Cup which is sponsored by Murdoch Pines Golf and Recreation Park was held at Araluen Golf Club on 16 November 2014.

We had a strong turn out of over 40 players.

Guests included Andrew Vlahov and members of the Chinese Consulate of Australia.
Chinese Consul General Dr Huang Qingguo and his wife also attended as guests to see how the competition was progressing.

The day went well for the players as the weather was good. However tough conditions on the course meant only the good and consistent players won.

There were several new members that joined.
The new members are:

Angie Yang
SongVit Lee

The Association gets a website

Dear readers

I have been working hard on creating a website for the association. After several weeks, the website has gone live. I am pleased as it has English and Mandarin versions. I had to get the Mandarin translation through a translator in China to save cost.
