We would like to say a big thank you to Garage79 for creating our cart graphic and to our partners who helped to make Golf Month possible Legacy Landscapes, Jayco Ballarat, TGB Build and Unblemished Skin and Laser Clinic, thank you for your support.
SUNDAY 20th October 12:00pm - 3:00pm
A fun afternoon out for the whole family. Great for anyone wanting to check out what golf is all about or for those who already play, it’s a great opportunity to introduce friends and family to the sport in a relaxed and fun setting.
On the day you can expect to take part in a casual golf clinic with all equipment provided, enjoy free use of the putting green, chipping green and driving range. Watch demonstrations from our Professionals. Grab a free snag at the sausage sizzle, and this year there will be a few extra special additions to the day to make it bigger and better than ever!

At the last session stay for our burger and beer deal! Monday 28th October
