2017 City Week of Golf

                                      35th Annual City Week of Golf 2017


Hello City Week golfers from your host & tournament director for the 2017 City Week of Golf, I am pleased to forward the attached Entry Form for this year’s event.

Firstly, I would like to thank our sponsors Bega Betta Home Living & Eden Motor Group enabling us to increase the prize pool. Also we have been fortunate to be joined again by Merimbula Beach Cabins & South Seas Motel & Apartments who all are offering you great rates – if you need accommodation please check them out.            

Registration & official welcome: This will be held in the Banksia Room at Tura Beach Country Club. Registration will be between 5.00pm and 6.00pm on Saturday 4th November and will be followed by welcome nibbles between 6.00pm and 6.30pm. Non golfers are invited to the welcome at a cost of $12. The golf is starting with an Irish Fourball at Eden, followed by an individual Stableford round at Bermagui. There is a rest day on Tuesday 7th November but men are welcome to play the regular competition at Tura Beach for just the $12 competition fee.

Then we are trying the new suggested format of playing Bega & Tathra on Wednesday & Thursday, YOU MUST PLAY BOTH – BUT YOU DECIDE WHICH DAY FOR EACH. (We will endeavour to place you at your requested course; however, this may need to change to even out numbers & cart use) This has been suggested to make better use of those clubs carts.

The usual Stableford round at Tura Beach will wrap up your week. The scores for these last three rounds will be combined for the 54-Hole City Week Championship. You will note that Eden, Bermagui & Tura are shotgun starts. Bega & Tathra will use early & later tee times; this is will allow them to better use their carts.

The entry fee is $190 ( or $45 for any single day) which is great value & includes green fees, competition fees for the set events, daily ball competitions, welcome party & final presentations lunch. Tura Beach is also offering tournament entrants the chance of playing the lead up & following weekend comps, for just the $12 comp fee.

You are cordially invited to enjoy the events at the Tura Beach Country Club during your stay here. These include the Melbourne Cup Calcutta on Monday night & the Melbourne Cup Luncheon & sweeps on Tuesday. The $10 meals on Wednesday nights attract many patrons. And there is also regular entertainment & raffles on Friday nights.

Special offers: It was wonderful having a greater number of ladies entering the competition last year. Again we are offering a $20 voucher for any lady’s entry. Please try and encourage a few more ladies to attend the tournament. This would again help us to ensure separate events for the ladies.

As an incentive to build overall numbers there will be a $20 voucher for each new entrant that you bring to the tournament. Please indicate on your entry form.

In respect of keeping the event viable, we are continuing with the following incentives: – Complimentary shirt will now be given to players reaching 25 & 30 years, this is in addition to the existing 10, 15 & 20 year shirts. Players reaching 20 & 30 years will receive a $30 club voucher. Players achieving their 21st & 31st event will receive a FREE entry. Players with over 21 years will be charged a $140 fixed entry fee.

Once again there will be a generous distribution of trophies for all events. Grades will be finalised once all entries have been received. Maximum handicaps are 36 for men and 45 for ladies. We are anticipating an increase in numbers to complement the bigger and better prizes on offer this year. The main event lunch & finals presentations will be at Tura on Friday following a 9am shotgun start. Non golfing friends are also welcome to this luncheon at a cost $15 a head.

If you no longer wish to be notified of future City Week events, please let me know and I will remove you from the mailing list. Thank you for your past support and hopefully we look forward to seeing you in November. Yours in golf.
