Following the very unfortunate, last-minute wash-out of our event planned for Friday 30th September, we have secured an alternative date of Tuesday 1st November. In view of the tight deadline and the requirement for a minimum number to be able to hold a BBQ afterwards, we are asking interested members to sign up as soon as possible, and at the latest by this Tuesday 18th October, so that we can gauge if we have the numbers required to stage the event.
If we do not, we may be able to hold it early next year on a Friday instead. In any event, we are still planning to hold the Christmas Cracker at Shek O on Friday 23rd December. Please therefore sign up as soon as possible if you would like to play, feast n frolic, celebrating our 30th anniversary on Tuesday 1st November as well.
Continuing with our 30th anniversary celebrations, and following on from last year’s spectacularly successful Christmas Cracker, which was possibly the most well attended and enjoyable Golf Society event in our three-decade history, we have been fortunate enough to secure a second opportunity to play on the exclusive Shek O golf course, followed by a sumptuous BBQ lamb spit dinner, including free flow wine and beer, at which, in view of the one-off nature of this celebration, partners of members are very welcome to attend, as well as those who aren’t able to make the golf.
This course is normally reserved for Shek O members only, or for corporate events funded with deep pockets, but thanks to our continued success in attracting sponsors, the Society is once again able to subsidise the cost of this event heavily, which makes this an extremely, reasonably priced opportunity to play on such a beautiful course.
We are offering three packages which will hopefully meet everyone’s budget and appetite as follows:-
1) Green Fee plus sandwich lunch, halfway hut drink and prizes – GS members only – HK$1,288
2) (1) plus extensive BBQ lamb spit dinner along with free-flow wine and beer – GS members only - HK$2,288
3) Extensive BBQ lamb spit dinner along with free-flow wine and beer – also available to GS partners – HK$1,000
For those who were unable to attend last year and/or have not had the opportunity to enjoy it before, a barbecue dinner on the lawns at Shek O overlooking the South China sea makes for a truly special evening, especially after a round on their unique and visually spectacular course. As noted, the Society, in view of this being part of our 30th anniversary celebrations, has decided that playing members, as well as non-playing members, are welcome to book a dinner and drinks place for their partner, whether they are a member of the society or not. Please specify any requests for teammates in your golf group in the notes section of the booking form..
NB. 1) The outing is only open to persons who meet the current government regulations for such events. Currently this means that attendees need to be FULLY VACCINATED and will also have to submit a named & dated photo of a negative RAT test taken within 24 hours of the event. Seating will be restricted to tables of 8.
2) Shek O is a WALKING COURSE. Limited caddies are available at HK$400 plus tip. If excess demand for caddies they will be allocated on a needs basis (medical condition, age etc). Please specify this requirement in the booking notes.
No. of Entries:
We plan to take over the whole course and so should be able to accommodate up to 68 players. For the dinner, the current maximum, according to the latest regulations, is higher at 120. Hence our ability to open the post golf dinner and drinks package to partners of playing members, as well as non-playing members. Priority will be given to paid up members, based on a lottery in the event of probable over-subscription.
