How does priority registration work? Any member who wishes to commit to participating in the event can register from 1 November 2017. Early registration makes it easier to satisfy requests for specific playing partners or to assist find partners. Everyone is welcome to register early - it is not exclusive to Thursday players.
Are there more details on the $10k hole-in-one? First of all, many thanks to the sponsor, Baillieu Holst Financial Advisers. The 16th Hole will be set at 155m for men and 143m for women and there will be an 'independant observer' adjacent to the green to verify all claims. If a player scores a hole-in-one, the prize is immediately reinstated for the rest of the field - no limit to the number of winners. Winners, their playing partners and the official 'observer' have their photo taken and must complete some paperwork (provided on the day). GOOD LUCK.
*Any conditions on the other Bonus Prizes? Yes - please note that the other Bonus Prizes can only be claimed at the Xmas Fun Day. For example, to collect a Prize Pack as part of the winning Challenge Team, players MUST BE PRESENT in the Clubroom. Similarly, players not in the Clubroom are not included in the putting competitions and the prizes will be awarded to the players with the best putting score who are present. (Note: this is not a condition of the Hole-in-One Bonus Event.)
Can participants play golf and not have lunch? The Entry Fee is all inclusive. A player can choose not to have lunch subject to paying the full Entry Fee AND advising that no lunch is required. The cost of the meals is heavily subsidised so it is imperative that the correct number of meals is ordered. (Please also note the above conditions for Bonus Prizes.)
