Brisbane Team Building Transportation

Brisbane Team Building Transportation

Let’s talk for a moment about team building days in Brisbane, and team building in Queensland in general. As you know, a good team building day can create and strengthen the bonds that make a team successful. After all, what is a team if not a group of people all working together toward a common goal? Everyone must know their own strengths and that of their teammates. The strength of your corporation might be production. The strength of Group 1 Minibus Service is transportation. We rely on you for your specialty and you can rely on us for ours. Just as importantly everyone must know their own weaknesses, and what tasks they must and also cannot delegate. For a worker this means knowing what they can tasks they can tuck into, take the ball and run with. For a boss this very often means knowing what they cannot do on their own, or what they must take upon themselves in order to demonstrate leadership. Continue reading →

Golf Tours About The Gold Coast

The Gold Coast Is Home To Many Fine Courses. Let Group 1 Minibus Show Them To You.

The neverending debate as to which is better for a golf tour, the Gold Coast or the Sunshine Coast, will not be drawing to a close anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean you have to enter the fracas. Unless you plan on spending a month or more putting around the green you’ll not have time to see all the courses on even one side of the river, let alone both. And while we at Group 1 would never utter a cross word regarding the fairways and sand traps on the sunny side, the goldy side certainly has quite a lot to offer as well. Take, for example:

Golf Tours Emerald Lakes Golf Club

With the slogan, night or day come & play, Emerald Lakes is a Golf Club where fun takes priority. With the uniquely Australian attitude of enjoyment and irreverence you’ll find, classic golf with all the modernity you’re looking for. Including, of course, a fully lit up par 72 course just in case you prefer to hit the links after sunset. And in the Australian summer, who wouldn’t? You can tee off after 5:30 PM and play up until 9:30 PM seven days a week, enjoying the fully illuminated back 9. And if you prefer to bring the kids with you, Emerald Lakes has an 18 hole putt putt course perfect for family fun. And when it’s time to put the kids to bed Emerald Lakes offers more adult gaming, from video gambling to Keno. Emerald lakes is a one stop, and we cannot recommend it more – something for everyone!

Palm Meadows Golf Course, Carrarra

Palm Meadows was designed over 20 years ago to be the Gold Coast’s premier golf course and it does not disappoint in the slightest. Palm Meadows is a true full service golf course and perfect for any tour group. On course food service and a very well reviewed restaurant mean you can have a beautiful and relaxing day on an 18 hole course. Be warned – the first hole is widely regarded as one of the most challenging in the world and the 18th is considered ranked in Golf Digest’s top 500. This course is definitely one for the pros! So, if you’re looking for a challenge you can find what you’re after at Palm Meadows. What’s truly amazing about Palm Meadows is its excellent value. It’s a public course with some of the best tee deals you’ll find anywhere, and for such an incredibly highly reviewed course that’s nearly unheard of.
