ANZAC DAY Breakfast then Stand Too lead by our Club member Barry Evans was the start of what turned out to be a fantastic Day.
42 teams from a large variety of clubs competed.
The winners were Ian Ewing’s team from Brunswick.
We would like to thank everyone who helped on the day, the cooks, ladies and gent in kitchen, bar staff, raffle sellers, mc and people who did all the little jobs around the club. Without all these people the event would not be possible.
Also we would like to thank our sponsors, namely Scott Rutherford from Ern Jensen, and our green keeper Phil Grant who not only sponsored the event but presented first class greens for the day.

These are the winners on the day.
