Next Event:
Mollymook weekend of Golf with the ACT Division
The event includes:
  1. ACT v NSW for Ossie Ratford Shield on Sunday May 6th
  2. NSW Jacket and Shawl Event on Saturday, May 5th
The main event is the Ossie Ratford Shield, currently held by ACT. However, as in the past, many participants make it a very enjoyable weekend of Golf, by playing in both events. There will be an evening function on the Saturday night, which will include a meal and even a drink or two at the Mollymook Golf Club on the beach. A booking has been made for 30 people at 7:30pm.
As always, Right Handed guests are very welcome to participate on both days.
Ossie Ratford Shield
When:           Sunday May 6th
Where:         Hilltop Golf Course, Mollymook
Tee Time:    From 7:30am. (Members playing in this event only, and travelling on the Sunday, will be allocated as close to 8am as possible)
Cost:             $80 which includes green and competition fee and a share cart for two players. For those that decide to walk the course the charge will be $60.
Carts:             14 carts have been pre-booked so there is no need to contact the pro shop to order a cart. If we receive more entries on either day, we will make arrangements with the club. For those who have not played the course previously it is very hilly, so a cart is recommended.

Where:           Hilltop Golf Course, Mollymook
Tee Time:     From 12 noon Cost: $80 which includes green and competition fee and a shared cart for two players. $60 for non-cart users Carts: as above
