2017 Commemorative Golf Day
On Sunday 13th August 2017 the Beenleigh RSL Sub-branch will host a Commemorative Social Golf Match with the aim of veteran and community groups competing in an Ambrose competition. We hope to attract teams from all military associations in the Brisbane and surrounding area. PLEASE TAKE STEPS TO GET YOUR ASSOCIATION TEAM REGISTERED ASAP before all available team spaces are filled. This promises to be a great and enjoyable event with tee off at 12.30 pm and presentation ceremony at 5 pm.
Teams are to comprise 4 people and may be all male, all female or mixed. An Ambrose competition gives all teams the chance of doing well and should ensure maximum enjoyment without the need for a team full of champions.
Attached is a flyer/poster that provides details. Green fees have been reduced for this special event. Note teams are invited to sponsor a hole at a cost of 100 dollars …for example the 4 RAR Association team will sponsor Hole number 4 while the 6 RAR Association are sponsoring Hole number 6! Sponsoring a hole allows a team/organisation to promote their association etc. by displaying banners and the like.
To register please contact our golf pro-shop direct on 07 32871951 and quote ‘Commemorative Golf Day’.
