The King was in the house, the President came up trumps on the golf course, the eagle has landed and our Club Pro Rob Kennedy finished equal first in the NSW PGA Professionals Championships. He has won his way to now play at Hamilton Island and represents Wentworth Falls Country Club in the National Champs. These are just examples of another week of adventure at the now legitimately dubbed Royal Wenty.

Our Tuesday Open medley was won by Peter Pollock with Callum Jones nipping at his heals just a point behind. Special mention to Callum who has now a full member of our Club. Welcome Callum and no…………he does not have to cut any of those flowing locks due to his change of status.

Frank Olsen had another win on Thursday in the Men’s Single Stableford event with Club Champion Magda Cawthorne taking out the ladies honours. Not the Handicapper, nor even the conditions are an impediment to Frank as he continues to finish on the podium or thereabouts in our mid-week fixtures. Well done Frank. The teams event was won by Alan Helmrich and Ron Wiseman in what proved a pretty tough day at the office.

The Elvis Festival was the background to our Saturday Par Handicap and 2BBB event. The wind was up a treat and had everyone “All Shook Up”. The cry of “Don’t be Cruel” and you “Hound Dog” were heard across the course as power fades turned into slices and ended up in front yards around Wentworth Falls. There was no “Loving me Tender” out there on Saturday as most ended up at “Heartbreak Hotel”.

Through all this adversity, President Stuart Liddell put on his “Blue Suede Shoes” and danced his way to a win. Mary Petkevitch was heard singing very loudly “Viva Las Vegas” as she sunk her final putt and took out the Ladies event. Mary partnered Stephanie Anderson and won the teams event. Stephanie was visiting from Killara Golf Club and I am sure was wondering if it’s always like this up the mountain. Also……there will be no chance of Magda Cawthorne being “Lonely Tonight” as she won the eagles nest on the 18th and took home a cache of new balls to share.

Early in the day, Steve Huxley, Donny Henderson, Mark Edwards and myself got blown about and discovered new and uncharted areas of the course. The two Steve’s had their problems but we quickly determined that Mark can putt them in from everywhere. It was just Donny’s 4th competition round and in fact he has only been playing golf for 2 years. A future pennants player for Stuart and Howie to fight over me thinks. Thanks for a great morning guys.

We have a big week next week with Saturday 12th August seeing our Handiskins Round 1 and The Cock-of-the-Walk Qualifiers.

I just wanted to write to let you know just how impressed I was with your club. In fact, everyone who attended the lunch was very, very impressed. Your staff could not have been more friendly, efficient and helpful. Even the young guy behind the bar was super-friendly whilst still being professional.  The food, without exception, was tremendous.
– Anne Hutchins
We often take family and visitors to the Thursday/Friday night servings and always found that everybody has enjoyed the food. The service is great with contact with the chef and his staff are wonderful and nothing is a problem for them even on a fully booked night they are so obliging.
– Mark R
Lovely Country golf club, with nice views over the course. Friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices.
– Martin C
An excellent venue for a special function. Friendly helpful staff and scrumptious food. I attended two Christmas lunches this past week and both were terrific. Also the Friday night carvery is worth trying. And the coffee is good too.
– Maunie K
This club has a real atmosphere about it and it never fails to please. Food, service all good. The servings are very generous and on most occasions are served quite quickly. The wine prices are attractive.
– Geoffrey W
My grandparents live in the area and after staying longer than expected visiting them suggested we have dinner at the country club. The only complaint I have is that they didn't tell me how good It was! - or I wouldn't have had so much for lunch.

A great course with attractive flora and fauna, and highly recommended for anyone visiting the Blue Mountains.

Thank you to my good friends at Wentworth Falls Country Club for your support and Fund raising to help me get to World Championships in Germany. This club and its community have supported me over the past 10 years, and for that I'm grateful. The Friendliest and best club in the Mountains.
– Moe Westmoreland
The Society of Mountain Artists had their Christmas lunch at the club last Thursday. It was the best ever, the club goes out of its way to make it work and the food was outstanding.
– Marie Morris
My family and I would like to thank Jackie and Matt and everyone else at the club for making our daughters and son in law Monique & Joel's wedding such a wonderful night. It was an amazing night and all of our guests commented on the friendliness of your staff and how lovely the food was. I thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
– Julie Christie
Cannot express how well the staff helped on our wedding day, food was delicious, great atmosphere. Thank you.
