Belmont Community Care, a ministry of Belmont Baptist Church
About Belmont Community Care
Belmont Community Care is a ministry of Belmont Baptist Church. It exists to show the love of Christ by providing meals and developing friendships with people in need across the Lake Macquarie region and beyond. This is primarily achieved via a Community Kitchen & Good360 programs.
The ministry also provides practical assistance to local people in need, making links on their behalf with service providers as required. In addition, Belmont Community Care also partners remote Aboriginal communities in Queensland, Northern Territory, and NSW. A twice yearly road trip provides critical items to these remote communities such as clothing, blankets, personal care, and toys. Belmont Community Care is best summed up by its Mission Statement: In the Heart of the Community, with the Community at Heart.

Novelty events & fundraising activities
Mulligan cards allow each team member to retake a shot. $10 per mulligan or six for $50. A maximum of six mulligans per team. When playing, please indicate on the scorecard when mulligans are used – stickers will be provided.
Teams may purchase ‘grenades’ that allow them to throw the ball one time, instead of hitting it with a club. These are excellent if you find yourself on the beach! $10 per grenade or six for $50. A maximum of six grenades per team.
Buy a colour ball and return it at the end of play to go into a draw for a great prize for each team member. However, the colour ball must be used by a different player, from your group, on each hole. The ball rotates consecutively amongst all players in the group. The object is to not lose the ball for the entire 18 holes. Any teams that complete the round with the ball still in possession will be entered into the draw. $20 per Colour Ball or three for $50. A maximum of three Colour Balls per team.
Players must put on a minimum of 3 items of ‘dress-up’ clothing before teeing-off. Players can avoid ‘dressing up’ by paying $10.
Hole of Fortune
Spin the wheel and follow the instructions. If you don’t like the result pay $10 to re-spin. Have the cameras ready, and get ready for some fun!
Nearest to the Pin
These are located on holes #5 and #15.
Pro pins work in the same way as NTP’s. However, there are much larger prizes up for grabs! A pro pin opportunity can be purchased for $5 (per player) on holes #3 and #11. Players can retake and enter, as many times they want.
Men’s: Holes #1, #6, #14 and #16
Ladies: Holes #1 and #14
Note: Drives must be on the fairway to register for a longest drive prize.
Rules of play
Each player plays a tee shot at each hole. The ‘team’ then selects the best drive, which is then played by its owner. Each member of the team must have at least three of his or her drives used during the round. Please mark on the card for each hole whose drive was used (initials). Thus, in a four-person team, one person can have his or her drive used up to a maximum of nine times.
The player whose ball was chosen has the first shot and then each remaining player places their ball within one club length of the spot, but not nearer to the hole, and plays their next shot. This procedure continues irrespective of whether the ball is on the fairway, in the rough, or in a hazard, until the play reaches the green.
On the green, the best position is again decided upon and marked. Each player then places their ball within 30cm of this spot and has one putt in turn. They must not putt out, but each ball position must again be marked and the procedure repeated until a ball is holed, or a score cannot be bettered. In the interests of speed, a tap-in putt may be taken after a good first putt and then the other long putts.
The team handicap is 1/8 of the combined players’ handicap (1/6 for teams of 3 players). If you do not have a golf handicap, you will be given a default handicap of 25 (Men) and 36 (Women).
Example: if your team’s combined handicap is 100. Divide 100 by 8 = your team handicap (12½)
The Scorecard must show each team member’s name, handicap and team handicap. The scorecard must be signed by two members of the team. Please hand your scorecard in to the pro-shop once you have completed your round.
