120 Members celebrated Australia Day on Sunday 29 January at the annual Australia v The Rest of the World Social Sunday competition with a two-person Ambrose format. One of the most hotly contested and enjoyed golf days of the year saw Members playing in extremely hot conditions, true to a typical Aussie summer. Club Members dressed in outfits which represented their country of choice and enjoyed a wonderful day on The Pines golf course.
This year’s Social Sunday event winners were Ross and Louise Wolbers with a superb score of 60.75 Nett, followed by runners-up Brett and Sharon Morgan-Evens with 61.25 Nett and third place awarded to Gary and Stephanie Simmons on 63 Nett. In the annual Australia Day team challenge, Australia was victorious over the Rest of the World again in 2023.
Thank you to all the Members who go to the effort to make this event such a fun day on our golfing calendar.
