President's Report

After a late storm passed over the day before & forecasts of more rain, I was a bit anxious whether the game was going to be on, but need not have worried as a call to the club confirmed all was well. The course was certainly in good condition, with the ball sitting well in the fairways & the greens running well, although there was water in some bunkers, which wouldn't have worried the good players. Congratulations to the greens staff.

This was the last game for 2011 & it was great to see 6 sponsors attending the lunch, 4 of whom played. Many thanks to all our sponsors; to Carlie Hatswell of Easylift for sponsoring the day with some lovely prizes which she presented; to Steve Buchanan of Bendigo Bank & Melody Lucas of Savannah Lifestyle Resorts; to Terry Buchanan who represented Lindsay Sinclair of Highgrove Bathrooms & played; to Andy Smith of NQ Co-op who also played and Craig Thompson of Drummond Golf who must surely have been impressed with my fine display of hacking!

We had 132 players, including Kay Mullins from Mareeba & John Drieberg from Gordonvale & one new member, Robin Tonks from Gordonvale. This brings our membership to 117 for the 2012 year.

Cairns golf club looked after us well with the bar staff hard pressed at lunch. Thank you. Thank you also to Nora who prepared the lunch & managed to squeeze us all in as well as seeing that everyone managed to have a good platefull. Also, thanks to June Willmot who was supposed to be one of a committee of three charged with arranging the meal, but who ended up a very capable committee of one!

Although this is our last game for the year, there are various other games available during the Tablelands Summer of Golf & I'll post their program to this blog soon, as well as our own for 2012. Meanwhile the Mareeba Golf Club Closing Day sponsored by Hungry Possum Wood Fired Pizza is fast approaching.(Saturday - 10th December 2011). If you haven't nominated yet, bookings are essential for the golf and festivities, so please contact the Club on 4092 1528. There is a time sheet for golf.

I wish all our members, sponsors & their families a Merry Christmas, and a Happy & Healthy New Year. If you are going away, drive safely.

Final Game for 2011 - Cairns 6 Dec


Our final game for 2011 is at Cairns Golf Club & is a 2 ball Ambrose with a shotgun start at 8.30am.  Please register early if possible so we can get people out to their respective tees in good time.  

Rules for the Ambrose will be summarised on the board.

Cost for the game, including our breakup lunch after, will be $27 for members, $35 for visiting players & $25 for non-playing guests.  It would be appreciated if you could let us know at registration if you are bringing any guests, so we can let the caterers know numbers for the lunch.

After the game we have our Xmas breakup lunch, so please hand your cards in as soon as you finish & before putting your clubs away, so that the committee can get the results finalised in time for them to sit down & enjoy the meal with you.

Copies of our 2012 program will be available at registration & will also be posted on the blog, as will the Tablelands Summer of Golf program, so keep an eye on the blog over the holiday period & you should be able to get a game in somewhere to prevent cabin fever!

See you tomorrow.
