Evidence of the Club’s performance
An unfortunate incident occurred during a Club event on the 8th June 2019. The story has been retold from an excerpt from the ‘Monash Times’:
Former Oakleigh Mens Golf Club president Peter McGrath is known to be a tough competitor on the course and he kept his reputation intact on the weekend. Competing in the first match play round of the Oakleigh Cup, and following a nice tee shot on the 7th, he unexpectedly went into cardiac arrest. Fellow playing partners were able to respond immediately with an emergency 000 response call and administration of CPR. Fortunately, Oakleigh golf course has a defibrillator and this was applied (twice) to resuscitate the ailing champ before emergency services arrived to provide further care.
The club is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and prides itself on its social atmosphere – and the actions of members to assist Peter is testament to this. The course is short, but tight, and if you don’t enjoy the Saturday morning walk, you can discuss it over lunch with other hackers. Competition fees include lunch, with a supporting liquor licence, and prizes are awarded to the best, the accurate, the longest, and the worst rounds. New members (male and female, all skill levels) are most welcome to join the ranks.
