Twilight Golf & Dinner WrapPublished on 6th November 2019 in Golf News, Local and Member News, Local News, Members News, Social News
The opening twilight golf and dinner was held on Monday November 4th.
It was pleasing to see a full timesheet in the lead up to the event, and despite a few weather-related cancellations the field was still strong, and there was even a little bit of sun for the golf! It is important to remember, even if you decide that golf is not for you, dinner will still go ahead, so if you decide to cancel from golf, we would appreciate your support for the social side of things.
The Summer Hole in One Comp returned, and I must say that the quality of shots has improved significantly in the off season. Whether it was the friendly pin position, or the slight head wind, or perhaps there have been some practice sessions that have gone unnoticed, there were only one or two shots heading towards the clubhouse, and only a few rolling down the 18th fairway!
It was Laird Gordon who hit one in nice and close to take out the first NTP, and book his ticket to the final shoot out, which will be held in the event there isn’t a hole in one throughout the year. The shoot out final will be a slightly different format this year, which you can find out more about HERE.
On course, it was the Mackenzie 6 Club Challenge, and it is fair to say, based on the results, that some of our golfers probably don’t need to carry around a full set of clubs!
Congratulations to our winners James & Sabine, who received a Flinders Putter Cover and a voucher from our event sponsors Kay & Burton, as well as everyone else who featured in the results
It was great to see so many visitors take out prizes, as well as a few of our members feature, while being at the pointy end of the leader board after Round One of the Club Championship.
Redley’s Raffle was as popular as ever, and the meat tray from Sommerville Meats, the Sedgley & Sons Pinot Noir and the entry ticket to the next twilight were gladly accepted by the winners.
Given the timing of the event, each participant received a ‘Mystery Bet’ ticket from the TAB for a Melbourne Cup Trifecta as a special gift, and I hear on very good authority that at least one of these tickets had the winning trifecta, which has left the lucky owner a few dollars richer after Tuesday’s race – no doubt they are out purchasing gifts of thanks for the marketing team as we speak!!
Our next event is on Friday November 15th, and the details are below – remember that there is no fee for golf, so you can bring guests for 9 holes and dinner for just $45, which represents excellent value. Click on the links or the image below to book your spot. Don’t forget to top up your bar account before the day or cash can be paid to the golf shop.
Our Major Twilight event commences on December 18, and this year the best combined score over the four weeks of competition will take out the top prize. Last year’s winners, Norm Johnston and Lyn Knorr both received beautiful framed prints of the course as their prize, which isn’t a bad prize for an event with no entry fee!
