Members were saddened to learn of the passing, after a long illness, of Ivan Bray.
Ivan was a much respected and generous member of the Club.
He was Club champion in 2001 and a member of the club’s successful 1996 Dalhousie Division 3 Scratch team. Our sympathy to Pam and family.
Robert Maxwell “Max” Mitchell,
Members were also saddened to learn of the passing of RGC past member, club champion and captain, Robert “Max” Mitchell on the 20th January in the Western District.
Max played his first pennant match for the club when he was 15 years old and was club champion 1956-60, 1962, 1965, men’s Captain 1962.
Members will remember Max as a natural born sportsman who excelled in every aspect of golf.
Max was the son of Life members Phyllis and Algie Mitchell (dec) and brother of Peter (dec) John (dec) and Stephen.
During the 1950’s and early 1960’s Max, John and Peter took turns at playing in the club championships as the cows on the family farm needed to be milked however, it looks like he got off early on a few Saturdays between ’56 and ’60.
Max, with his brother John, relocated to the western District in the early 1970s to continue farming. Our condolences to Nola and family
