Leg of Lamb Competitions
Our Easter Leg of Lamb Competitions have now started with both the 10 hole competitions and the weekend competitions having legs of lamb as prizes.
Captain’s Drive In:
Our Captains, Pat and Ruth, held their Drive In on Sunday last and while the weather wasn’t the best it didn’t deter the huge number of players coming along and enjoying the 13 hole scramble. Following the Drive In it was across the road to the Gold Coast Hotel to tuck into the sumptuous Spare Ribs and Colcannon before the presentation of prizes. Thanks again to our President Michael Wall for arranging with Dawn Meats to sponsor the ribs.
