Eirene and the peeps at the Cross would like to invite you lovely ADubbers to the Southern Cross Annual Golf Tournament.
It’s open to all and is a great excuse for a cheeky mid-week break. It’s a good way to socialise with the Cross crew, our suppliers and loyal punters – plus the chance to beat the owner at his own game!
The rules are simple; teams of four playing Ambrose (if you’re not sure what Ambrose is, no worries we’ll fill you in). Don’t worry if you’re not much of a golfer, although there are a few that take it pretty seriously, for most it’s really about having a sweet day out on the course.
We play in teams of four, if you don't have a team already we'll match you up with a team. There will be a BBQ running throughout the day at the 1st hole and prize-giving with drinks and nibbles at the clubrooms afterwards.
No fancy golf attire is required just ‘tidy casual’ with flat, closed toe shoes. No Jandals.
For those coming on the bus we’ll meet here 10.30am and head away on the bus about 11am. For those making their own way there you’ll need to be at Shandon for briefing at 11.30am. Tee off is at 12pm and we should be finished about 4.30pm and back to the Cross for about 5pm for a few quiets and some of the best local musicians that Wellington has to offer!
More spaces may be opened up dependent on availability.
Clubs are available for hire at the course on the day.
Cost: It costs $30 per person for the day which includes green fees, food and drinks and a bus from The Cross out to Shandon and back, if you need. Payment is due in full by March 6th. Payment is refundable if you change your RSVP to "not attending" no later than 4pm on Tuesday 19th.
Difficulty: 1/5 (reasonable level of fitness required, for more info see FAQ)
Duration: 4 or so hrs of walking with LOTS of stopping.
Bring: your own golf clubs if you have some (money to hire if you don't) water bottle, sun protection.
How to get there:
Let us know if you want to catch the bus with us - we'll be leaving the Cross at 11am. Don't be late.
