25th Anniversary Celebrations
Sunday 22nd September was a day to remember in our club, with past and present officers, members and friends gathered together to celebrate 25 years in the beautiful Gold Coast Golf Resort. It was a day full of fun, memories, fabulous food, magnificent prizes and tokens of gratitude from the Club which was a wonderful gesture to the members!! There was a choice of golf on the day from 18 Hole Singles for ladies and gents to a Mixed Scramble for those looking for a bit of fun golf, the weather was fine and sunny which added to the occasion!!
Presentation of prizes and a sumptuous 4 course meal was served at 4pm in the Gold Coast Hotel amid chatter, laughter and catch-ups with old and new members and friends, archival photos were screened on a loop system and brought about many comments, both good and not so complimentary!! New and updated photos were then taken by our resident photographers Bob and Willie which were all uploaded to the Whats App group on Monday morning, what a stunning selection of photos!!
A big Thank You to all involved on the day, to the management, staff, caterers, waiting staff and the McGrath family for a fabulous and momentous day, here’s to the next 25!!
The ladies Club would like to welcome our new Administer in the kiosk, Brian has worked for many years on the course and is no stranger to the workings of the system as a keen and avid golfer himself. He has taken to his new job like a duck to water, ever ready with answers and advice for any queries!! We are delighted you have joined the admin side and wish you many happy years in your new position!! Many have wondered if he will be the new Bob?? Sorry to say, there is only one “BOB”
Card Rota System
We are currently looking for volunteers to help with competition results, a knowledge of computers is an advantage but not essential as tuition will be given, also being a committee member is not a requirement. Please forward your name to Lady Captain or any committee member, it would be much appreciated!!
Our next meeting will be Friday 11th Oct. @
