Japan Spring Tour 2015 Remembered

A group of 20 golfers and partners recently returned from Go Golfing’s tour to Japan. The tour was timed to coincide with Cherry Blossom season and right on cue they bloomed on the day our guests arrived. The cherry blossoms add rich colour to the landscape and made the golf courses postcard perfect. Lunch with Sumo wrestlers, dinner with exotic Geisha, Ninja demonstrations, a lesson in the art of Bonsai – you won’t find a tour with such diversity in any travel agency. And when our final round was cancelled because it was snowing (first time in 90 years it has snowed in April) we pulled some strings to arrange a French degustation in the restaurant of the original Iron Chef (tv series), Hiroyuki Sakai.



Golf Tipping Competition With $65,000 in Prizes Guaranteed to Be Won

Go Golfing in partnership with Ladbrokes has launched a golf tipping competition that has $65,000 in prizes guaranteed to be won. Top prize is a $40,000 VIP tour to the 2016 British Open and golf at Open rota courses.

Ladbrokes CEO, Dean Shannon, is excited to give golfers the chance to back their tipping skill. “Standing on the tee, it is among golf’s traditions to play your partners for a round of drinks, a lotto ticket or much higher stakes. Ladbrokes golf tipping is another exciting way for golfers to back themselves. The British Open tour with Ladbrokes VIP hospitality will be an amazing experience. Better still – it’s FREE to play.”

2015 Wrest Point International Masters Review

The week prior to the Barnbougle Challenge saw more than 300 golfers from all over Australia and international visitors from as far afield as Scotland contest the Wrest Point International Masters in Hobart.

Entrants came from 116 clubs, while 24 from Bargara near Bundaberg in Queensland was the most from any one club.

Open to club golfers aged 35 plus, competition is played in age and handicap divisions. Playing 2 rounds at both Royal Hobart and Tasmania golf clubs, all golfers play stableford while ‘A’ graders are also eligible to compete for the best gross.

Seventy five year old Jean Thomas from Redcliffe in Queensland proved age was no barrier, carding a 72 hole total of 388, the best of all the ladies and a runaway winner of the ladies 66+ gross championship. Madeleine Barnett from Concord, scored 141points stableford points, the highest total of all the ladies.
