The final game for the year is upon us: Riverlakes Golf Club on 6 December, arrival time 5.45am (gasp!) for tee-off at 6.00am. Riverlakes is at Gleneagles Drive, Cornubia. Take the Beenleigh - Redland Bay Road from the Pacific Mwy towards Carbrook, about 5km, and turn right at Riverlakes Village shopping centre traffic lights, where there is a small "golf club" sign, leading to ... a security gate! ... after which you turn left. If you cross California Creek and see the course on your right, you've driven too far, but do not do a U-turn there because it's very dangerous. Drive on until it's safe! The number of the Pro Shop at Riverlakes is 3287 6288.
I like Riverlakes because it's relatively short, so watch out. However, the fairways are narrow and there are lots of water carries, so many people don't like it for some reason. I don't want to scare you off, because the course is quite pretty, but we're offering a special prize for the player who *loses* the most balls! Or at least owns up to losing the most balls. :-)
And I should also be able to give you a preview of next year's schedule.
As usual, please let me know by Monday whether or not you are playing, so I can inform Riverlakes of our numbers a week ahead, as they request. If you discover that you can't play after accepting, please, please let me or Paul (0403 901 344) know as soon as possible.
PS Paul has just announced that he will only require one ball. Them's brave words!
