Monthly Green Fees – The cost to play with the Geelong Croatian social golf club has increased from $35 to $40. This is due to the increase in green fees the golf courses are charging us.
Signature required – A signature will be required next to your handicap. You MUST sign the handicap sheet before starting your round to confirm you are playing and you have seen your handicap. If you do not sign the sheet, you will be ineligible to win any prizes and qualify for the finals.
Cro Open – The Cro open will change from a stableford format to a Par format.
Champ Of Champs – If a player is late to a tee off for the Champ of champs and his group has already tee’d off, he will be disqualified from the tournament.
Champ of Champs – In an event of a tie, the players which are equal leaders will play the 18th hole to determine the winner. The 18th hole will continue to be played until there is a winner. There will no longer be count back.
Vic Cro – The Geelong Croatian socila golf club will be hosting the Vic Cro this year. A date and venue is yet to be detemrined.
2015 Golf trip – The committee is planning a golf trip ( date and venue to be detemrined) for 2015. We will require at least 25 members to attend in order for the trip to go ahead. Similar to past years, we will subsidize some of the costs for the golf trip.
4 man Ambrose – We will try and incorporate a 4 man ambrose tournament in 2015 on a public holiday pending interest. The event will have no effect to your handicap nor will it qualify you for the finals. Just something for a bit of fun .
The schedule for 2015 is up on the website and make sure you all pop down to Curlewis on 11 Jan for our first tournament for 2015. Tee off @ 7:30am. This is the first round of the Ivan Marks and will be a stroke format.
