Golfers from any club can participate as long as they have a registered handicap.

The entry fee is $39.50 for each of  the four individuals who wish to play in the ambrose team event.

An ambrose competition is such that the team tees off and the four of them then hit their second  shot from where they deem the best ball finished up.

On and on it goes with some remarkably low scores achieved.

Handicaps are factored in and teams with a specialist big driver, an expert chipper and a deadly putter fare well.

Regional winners go to Queensland where the ultimate winners each get a Holden car.

Meanwhile, we caught up with the Tanilba Social Golf Club after their Friday comp.

According to Captain Ron McKay, they have  68 members and have been functioning for some 30 years.

“New members are most welcome,” he said.

“It costs just $10 to join and as little as $15 for a round of golf. We have regular monthly barbecues and it’s a great way to socialise and make friends.”

“New members are most welcome and we offer nine hole and 18 hole competitions for both men and women,” he said.

Ron can be contacted on 4984 5176 for details of the social golf club and teams can book in for the ‘scramble’ at the pro shop on 49823215.
