A note on cart hire

If members or visitors wish to hire a cart during competitions, you must arrange this with Karen or Larissa in the Birdie Kitchen. Please do not just take a cart, it may be already hired by other members or visitors.

 Golf Fore a Cause

Events at Trentham may be included in the "Golf Fore a Cause" competition operated and supported by Drummond Golf Niddrie. Proceeds go to Lifeline.

Entry costs an extra $5 over the normal club competition fee, and there is $1500 worth of prizes available each month, including $500 for the best score. All scores will be judged on the golfer's Stableford handicapping score in GolfLink. Every golfer who matches or beats their handicap will win a sleeve of three golf balls.
