GOLDCOAST GOLF CLUB NOTES 2nd AUGUST 2020
Great to see so many people on the course playing golf. Conditions were mixed in the week but still a good many people got in a round. Thanks to Captains John and Anne for remembering the front-line workers on Sunday. It was a nice touch by the Captains for the year that is in it and we hope your bucket in the kiosk was bursting come Sunday evening. If you get out to play golf in the coming week enjoy the experience. The course is in truly magnificent condition. With the damp and warm conditions the grass is growing great and the whole course looks fresh and green.

RULE FOR THE WEEK: Seeking Advice
While it is one of the most sociable of sports, golf is a solitary game and this is reflected within the Rules. You cannot ask advice on club selection, for example, from anyone other than your caddie. Neither should you offer advice to opponents in competition. However, you may ask for information on the Rules, distances or positions of hazards or the flagstick.
