Mem­bers set to go head-to-head out on the green

Warwick Daily News - - Sport -

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.
