Golf on Saturday is an 18 stroke round playing for the monthly medal and putting competition. On Sunday, the men will be playing a two-person ambrose, a qualifying round for the NSW Keno two-person ambrose. We will be hitting off between 9.30am and 10am.

The combined handicaps can't be less than eight and the maximum difference between handicaps is 20. You can still have a player with more than 20, but his handicap will be adjusted down to the maximum 20.
