Next Game Atherton 20 Aug

All,

Our next game is back to a nice simple single stableford, after the two stroke rounds of the Champs.

The event is for the Ted Thomasson trophy & is sponsored by Reef Casino.

I'm advised the course is in great condition no doubt with their usual fast greens.

See you there.

President`s Report & Results for today`s game at Cairns GC


PRESIDENT REPORT – CAIRNS GOLF CLUB 13 Aug 19

Hi Members,
Today`s game was a stroke event and the 2nd and final round of the 2019 Championships, there were 96 starters consisting of 78 men & 18 ladies. There was one new member, Graham Johanson from Gordonvale Golf Club welcome aboard Graham. Once again the course was in excellent condition and the weather was as good as we could expect considering it has been snowing down south.

Many thanks to all the staff at Cairns GC for, the condition of the course, behind the bar and providing the sandwiches after the game, much appreciated by all members. There was a left handed club handed in after the game, I have passed it in to the Pro shop if someone has lost it.

Our sponsor today was GOLF WORLD who was also our sponsor for the two day championships at CGC. Many thanks to GOLF WORLD for their sponsorship over the championships for without them the fees would most certainly be much higher than they are. The same reminder as per last week for those receiving winners/runners up vouchers, these vouchers have already passed their use by date however, the vouchers will be honoured upon presentation to Golf World.
When all trophy recipients have been worked out they will be presented at our Xmas break up function on 03 Dec at Cairns GC.

Finally I would like to thank the FNQVGA Committee members for ensuring that all elements of the championships went like clockwork over the two games without incident. Well done team.
Next weeks game will be at ATHERTON Golf Club, hope to see you all there.
Robin
President

Next game Cairns GC 13 Aug 19

Next Tuesday will be a stroke event, the 2nd round of the FNQVGA 2019 championships at Cairns Golf Club. The course is in great shape and ready for some good scoring.

 Please ensure that you mark your stableford scores on your card as they need to be completed for handicap purposes otherwise Wal & Andrina have to calculate them on your behalf which is not a good look.

Good golfing and hope to see you all there.

Regards

Robin

Please be aware that if you intend to play in the championships you must pay for the two games next Tuesday at registration as we need to know how many members are participating in the championships. Those members not interested in playing in the champs are quite welcome to play in the comp of the day for both games as per our normal weekly events.
