Members at Braemar Country Club in Tarzana, California, are now well-educated on all things Australian thanks to the club’s recent “Great Aussie BBQ.” General Manager Alex Hammill, who hails from theland down under, brought his homeland to Braemar’s driving range for an event that featured authentic Australian cuisine. The menu offered Shrimp on the Barbie, Meat Pie, Anzac biscuits, lamingtons (dessert) and Vegemite sandwiches. Alex educated Members about the food with fliers describing each food item. Activities included an Australian accent contest, a Heads or Tails game, a putting contest and a Vegemite sandwich-eating contest.
In addition, a local zoo sanctuary brought a baby kangaroo, crocodile, kookaburra and more. More than 200 Members and Guests participated and the weather was perfect – Great Aussie BBQ was a fun and educational way to spend a beautiful spring day.
