Halcyon Community Living have agreed to provide sponsorship for a number of events at the Redland Bay GC during 2020. For the Ladies and Veterans it is in the way of ‘lucky door prizes’ and the vets will be conducting these lucky door prizes in the same manner as we have done in the past for other sponsorship lucky draws. ie the player MUST be present (usually following the daily event presentation) at the time of the draw to be able to receive the prize and the draw will continue until all sponsorship prizes have been won. The Veterans at this point in time have been granted sponsorship prizes for 2 of our competition events and to accommodate the sponsorship, the events will change from a normal 2 Tee start to a shotgun start. The dates that have been selected for the changes are as follows:- Monday 6 April and Monday 29 June with the 6/4 date being a 8.00am shotgun start and the 29/6 date being a 8.30am shotgun start.. Veterans are also advised that for the 1st sponsored event, ie 6 April, a free sausage sizzle for all players will be held following the completion of the game and prior to the presentation.
