Is red wine bad for working out?

“In a combination the exercise allows you to shed the pounds in the first place and a moderate amount of red wine could help keep it off.  So don’t swear off the wine and beer entirely if you’ve resolved to hit the gym.  Simply consume in moderation.  The benefits could aid your success.” “excerpt from Google”

Greens Lighting Completed

We are excited that a few weeks ago our new LED Greens Lighting was installed.  Results from a lighting audit indicated that we have better than doubled our coverage of the green, thereby providing safer conditions for evening play.

We kindly acknowledge Sport Australia and the Mt Barker Council for their excellent financial support in the most important project.
