From the Manager


RACV Golf Manager, Angela McLaren

December 2017

It has been a big month in golf and I am very happy to share the news of our expanded PGA partnership which will bring Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series and Legends Tour events to you in 2018. I encourage you to play in as many of these events as you can and take advantage of the pre-sale priority booking that you will receive from the PGA to ensure you do not miss out.

Our first event will be held at RACV Goldfields Resort Ballarat and Daylesford Region and will be in the format of the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 event. This will include a qualifying round and 6 hole match play elimination rounds to determine the winner.  Stay tuned for more details about the event and how to book your spot.

In other news, I am also pleased to announce that I have finally achieved my handicap goal of breaking below a GA of 30. I have managed to sit at 30.2 for many months but now that daylight savings and warmer weather have arrived it has been easier to fit in more golf and it has paid off. In perhaps the most memorable round of golf in my amateur career to date, I managed to bring home a one point win with a 10 metre pressure putt on the 18th against one of our RACV Golf members, Jason. I would like to thank Jason for a brilliant round of fun and competitive golf (Jason nabbed the lead by one point on the 17th with a four pointer and the subsequent banter was second to none) and for being a great sport and helping me celebrate my breakthrough into the 20’s. I am now at 29.7 and have my sights set on reaching 25. I wish you the best of luck for your handicap goals in December
