Kolonga Ladies Christmas Event

Last week, during their usual Wednesday morning at the Edithvale Public Golf Course, the Kolonga Ladies Social Club held their “Fun Day 2020” and Christmas breakup.

The event was well attended by their members, both playing golf and then enjoying food and drink in the clubhouse but the highlight of the day was the “interesting” rules created for their round of golf.

Here’s a run down of the rules they used on the day:

HOLE 1: You may tee off two balls and choose the best one to continue to the hole.
HOLE 2: Once your ball is on the green you must remain silent until the last ball in your group has been holed. Penalty for talking is two strokes.
HOLE 3: Bingo, Bango, Bongo – you play this hole as normal but don’t score until you get close to the green. Whoever hits onto the green first gets two points (Bingo). Whoever gets closest to the hole when all players are on the green on their next shot gets two points (Bango). Whoever gets into the hole first gets two points (Bongo).
HOLE 4: You must use the same club that you tee off with until you reach the green.
HOLE 5: You cannot use a wood or a hybrid to tee off but you must use a tee.
HOLE 6: If you land in a bunker you may take a drop at line of entry with a two shot penalty.
HOLE 7: Bingo, Bango, Bongo
HOLE 8: Play as normal
HOLE 9: Play as first hole, tee off two balls and choose the best one.

To top it all off, all players were only allowed three clubs and a putter for their entire round!

It was great to see everyone having such a great time and from the Australasian Golf Club, we wish them all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Golf is Back!

With the loosening of some of the COVID-19 restrictions recently we are happy to announce that golf is back!

We will be open from Monday 19th October (7am).

Golf must still be played in groups of two, masks must still be worn for the duration of the round (as well as before and after), flagsticks are not to be removed from the holes and there will be no rakes in bunkers.

Other restrictions at this point in time also stop us from selling food or drink and we are unable to hire equipment either.

UPDATE: With the further loosening of restrictions, we can now – sell food and drink, hire equipment out to players and golf can now be played in groups of four.

Closure Due to Stage Four Restrictions

Unfortunately, with the latest announcements from the Victorian Government and the rise in COVID-19 cases, we have to close the gates to the golf course once again.

Staff will continue to maintain the course so that when we are able to re-open the course is in great condition for everybody.

Again, we appreciate your ongoing understanding, support and co-operation during this difficult time. We will keep you informed with any further developments as they come to hand. We look forward to when it is safe to reopen and welcome everyone back on course.

Stay safe, stay healthy.
