2019 Annual Golf Day and Post Harvest Meeting
Sponsored by GrainCorp, the 2019 GIAV Annual Golf Day was held at the Buninyong Golf Club on Thursday afternoon February 28th, and a dinner was held that evening at the Mercure Ballarat Hotel and Convention Centre. The next morning, the GIAV hosted the Post Harvest General Meeting at the Mercure Ballarat.
Buninyong Golf Club, located in the foothills of Mt Buninyong, was our course for 2019. The Buninyong course provided us with an excellent 18-hole Par 72, 5,759m course, with lush santa anna couch fairways and superbly manicured bent grass greens. Although comparatively short in stature, the course is challenging to golfers of all abilities. A light lunch was provided before a 12:30 shot gun start of our Ambrose format.
