Golf Fore Ever - 2016 Coomera Anglican Corporate Golf Day

Our warmest thanks to everyone who participated in the 9th Annual Corporate Golf Day last Friday, 11 November and contributed to an outstandingly successful event … from our sponsors and golfers to our wonderful volunteer team, to Michelle Bristow and the staff at Gainsborough Greens, our Pro For Hire Dylan Stollery, and to our special guest - former Wallaby World Cup hero Elton Flatley. 

And what a fabulous day it was!  A record field of 25 teams teed off on a warm sunny day for a relaxing round of golf, complete with on-course games and challenges for the chance to win one of the many prizes on offer.  After the round, players regrouped at the 19th hole to be entertained by Year 12 band, “All Accounted For” in their last ever performance, before a buffet dinner, prize presentation and auction.  You can check out all the photos on the College facebook page.
