Premier Butcher @Dawn Meats Winter League 2017/2018

Another good week for the league. Sunday’s timesheet was the busiest we’ve seen for a long time and credit to all the players for turning out. After studying the league tables it now looks like this will be the toughest league to win in a long time. Nearly all the teams are putting in an extra effort this year, the number of games played is up on last year, and if the weather helps this could be the one of the best leagues we ever had.

All the scores for week five are on the website:


Decisions on the Rules of Golf App:

There is a very good app available free to download on the Play Store called Golf Decisions 2016 – 2017. It gives each rule of golf and also gives many definitions for each rule. There are also a number of very short videos illustrating how to apply the rules. All golfers should learn something from this app.



What we have to offer:

Here in the Gold Coast we have some great facilities, such as a top-class golf course with superb greens, playable all the year round, a leisure centre and gym and a hotel which is renowned for its excellent food. We offer very competitive membership rates in the golf club, the lowest full membership rate in the area and we can provide dual memberships to both the golf club and the leisure centre at reduced rates.
