An invitation For 2015 Grand Sand Slam Golf Classic

An invitation! and a challenge! It’s time for the 2015 Grand Sand Slam Golf Classic!

Grand Sand Slam Golf Classic fever hits the Discovery Coast again on Sunday, 8 November, and the Captain Cook Lions Club invites everyone to join in and have a fun day at Eurimbula Beach.

For those who have not played in the Grand Sand Slam Classic before, it is 9 holes of golf played on along Eurimbula Beach at low tide…
This is truly a unique experience.

The theme this year is ‘Circus o’LARC’, so get out your clown costumes, or your trapeze! and come dressed as your favourite circus character.

The event is played along Eurimbula Beach next to the beautiful Eurimbula National Park.

Players travel in the LARC (the world’s largest golf buggy), which takes them through the surf to the unique course.

A BBQ breakfast will be served on the beach at hole 1. Liquid refreshments will be available for purchase on and off the course.

At the end of nine holes, a BBQ lunch and a presentation of prizes and awards will be held, and lots of other beach activities.

Prizes will be awarded to the winning team, nearest the pin, longest drive both ladies and men, zaniest dressed team, the usual Hole-in-One competition, and a special award in memory of Lindsay Evans, long time president of the Agnes Water/1770 RSL Sub Branch, and regular Sand Slammer.

The event is a 4 Person Ambrose. Teams consist of 4 players at $60 per player which includes a great BBQ breakfast and lunch, sand fees; return trip on the LARC, (alcohol will be available for purchase… NO BYO).

Clubs allowed on the day are limited to 5 iron, pitching wedge and putter (please bring extra golf balls). All teams are to assemble at the 1770 Marina at 7:30am for registration.

Again this year, following the success of last year… you are invited to make a weekend of it… come over to Eurimbula and camp for the night on Saturday with the Lions team. Cost $25 for BBQ Dinner that night. Camp fees and gear your own responsibility.

This will be the 16th year for the Grand Sand Slam Classic, the very best time you can have at the beach… or playing golf! Come along and join in all the laughs of the Grand Sand Slam!

As the number of teams is limited to the number of seats on two LARCs, it is first in best dressed, when entries reach 18 teams that will be it, so make sure you get in early as spots are filling fast.
