Joan receives life membership

JOAN Peters was recently inducted as a life member of the Korumburra Golf Club, which was awarded after four decades of outstanding contributions to the club.
For 22 years of the past 40 years, Joan has been a member of the women’s committee, including the role of president in 1988/89 and 2011/12 and captain in 1995/96.
She has been very positive in committee positions, encouraging respectful discussions during meetings, being actively involved and warmly welcoming new members and visitors who attend our special events.
Joan has been heavily involved in the catering committee, including the co-ordination of counter teas and scores of other occasions at the club. Catering is an immense task and Joan has been diligent and meticulous in the planning and preparation of innumerable functions.
An excellent cook in her own right, Joan has been a generous and creative ‘hostess’ and consequently the club has a reputation for high quality lunches, desserts and sponges.
There have been many undesirable tasks that few others have taken on, and Joan has volunteered to ensure these necessary responsibilities were completed regularly.
Joan also made a significant contribution to the gardening working bees, often initiating a special effort when it was required.
She often plants and tends various sections of garden, frequently popping up to the club to maintain these projects.
Joan has also provided a multitude of wonderful floral arrangements for scores of occasions at the club.
To also assist the club, Joan regularly attends social functions, and, over the years, has generously donated trophies and raffle prizes.
Health issues meant Joan wasn’t so heavily involved for a couple of years in the mid 2000s but once she was better, she again demonstrated great support in diverse areas within the club.
Joan loves playing golf and takes much pleasure in discussing and recalling particular aspects of the game with fellow competitors.
She has been, and continues to be, a strong contender for key events.
Joan was Club Champion in 2006 and 2008, won B Grade Championships, numerous eminent Foursome and Four Ball events, had a ‘hole-in-one’, as well as being a vital part in Pennant teams over the years.
She has been keen to travel to surrounding South Gippsland clubs to represent Korumburra and enjoy the camaraderie of golfers at these special events.
Joan has shown outstanding commitment to the Korumburra Golf Club is indeed worthy to be honoured with life membership.

Well deserved: Joan Peters was inducted as a life member of the Korumburra Golf Club recently.
