Ruth has retained a very strong committee who are all very pro-active in promoting ladies golf, with Ger procuring a slot for 7 of our ladies to join the Men’s Winter League. This idea was warmly welcomed by the men and we are delighted to be part of this new venture!!

We would like to thank our out-going officers and committee members for their dedication and hard work during their tenure, and wish them stress free golf for the coming year! To our incoming officers and committee, we wish you the very best for 2019 and looking forward to a great year of golf!!


Our long awaited Director of Golf Irene has finally arrived and is settling in very nicely to her new role, and has received a very warm welcome from all the members she has met so far, a keen golfer playing off a handicap of 7, our ladies are dying to get her out on the fairways!! We wish Irene a long and happy time with us here in the Gold Coast.
