President’s Prize 2019
Mr Michael Wall, President of the Gold Coast Golf Club, will host his President’s Prize over the coming weekend. Qualifying will take place on Friday and Saturday and the top 42 will go through to the final on Sunday.
The final round on Sunday will have a shotgun start at 10 a.m.
If you have hopes of winning the 1st prize then please make sure your name is in for the draw on Wednesday evening. If you are not in the draw you could be eligible to win all other prizes bar the 1st prize.
On behalf of all in the Club I would like to wish Michael and our Lady President all the very best for their weekend.
This will take place on Wednesday with a shotgun start at 5,30 p.m. Names to be put on timesheet for draw which will take place on Wednesday at 2 p.m.
The Scramble will be followed by presentation of prizes with Spare Ribs and Colcannon provided to all players.
President’s Prize Presentation:
Our Ladies and Gents will be taking part in the shotgun start on Sunday at 10 a.m. so all should be expected to be finished by 1.45 p.m. At this time the BBQ should be well fired up so all players can replenish their lost energy while waiting for the presentation, which hopefully, weather allowing, will take place outdoors at about 3.30 p.m. If the weather does not play ball we have a plan B.
