Members set to go head-to-head out on the green
EASTER is all about rebirth and starting afresh, so if there are no long weekend holidays on the horizon then it could be a good chance to get into golf.
Warwick Golf Club will be holding a stableford for members today and tomorrow, the perfect opportunity for experienced and new players to hit the green.
An 18-hole competition will be run on both days.
Club professional Sam Eaves said both men and women of all ages were invited to play.
“We’re hoping a few people still come out because it’s a popular for people go away,” Eaves said.
“It’s a great opportunity for members who haven’t played in a while to have a hit.
“A Saturday or Sunday game of golf is all about hanging out with like-minded people who like to hang out on the golf course.”
It’s been a good week for golf in Warwick, with a local team taking out the Golf in Australia Cup on Sunday.
Eaves said the club had been working hard to build involvement, with about 100 members currently signed up.
“There’s a great importance around the club in growing the game from a grassroots level, because the flow on effect is parents get involved and grandparents get involved,” he said.
“There’s also a great importance in growing the game among women and girls.”
The stableford competition will give those members a chance to mingle and enjoy the social side of the game, as well as take home a few prizes.
Sandy Creek Pub, Woolworths and Bells Butchery are the sponsors across the weekend.
Eaves said vouchers were up for grabs for those who earn top spots.
The competitions will run from about 7am to 1pm.
Players are required to pay a $15 competition fee to enter.
Non-members are also able to sign up for memberships on the day and take part.
