We have 69 players this week and have had a lovely day for our 2nd round of Twilight. Some returned with good scores with the Russian Roulette format. 12 points on a hole is a good score but then followed by 1 point on the next hole can be disheartening. Not to mention 0 points when your partner didn’t score. We were treated to some fresh mussels, Brisket BBQ style and Chicken with salads and chips. Superb meals from Jarrod at $15.

Next Wednesday, 20th October Cards in by 4:45pm latest for 5pm Shotgun start. We will continue with the early start till the end of October.

Format for the day will be Combined Stableford but 5 Clubs only, which includes your Putter. You need to choose your clubs wisely. Jarrod will be serving Burgers, sausages and BBQ with salads and chips for $10. You have to be in the Club room for Lucky Draw prizes which has been a real treat for those who didn't do well in golf.
