President's Report & Results Xmas Breakup Cairns 5 Dec

Today was the final day for the 2017 season and we celebrated in style with a 4 ball better ball stableford at the Cairns Golf Club followed by a lunch that included prawns, cold meat salad and plum pudding with custard. Thank you very much to the staff at Cairns club for the wonderful day they helped create for us. There were 80 men and 11 ladies in the field.

One of the highlights of the day was the presentation of life member certificates to Claud Clark and Shirley Fieldhouse, both of whom spoke of how pleased they were to be recognised in this way.

We always invite those people who have been kind enough to sponsor our events during the year to come along and enjoy our hospitality on this day so it was our pleasure to have Bob Westerman there to represent Golf World, Deb Duffy from Deborah Duffy Estate Agent and Darren Golder of Drummond Golf.

The sponsor for the day was DEBORAH DUFFY ESTATE AGENT and Deborah was on hand to present the prizes to the winners and runners up.

Next Game Xmas Breakup at Cairns 5 Dec


Our next game is our Xmas breakup final game for the season & is a 4BBB stroke round at Cairns, sponsored by Deborah Duffy Estate Agent.

This is a shotgun start at 7.30am, so please ensure you get there in plenty of time to register & get out to your tee.

Cost for the day including comp fee and meal will be $30.

Our Xmas breakup meal will follow immediately after the round, with the cost of the prawns being subsidised by us.  To avoid any problems with seating, you will be allocated a table number alongside your group when posted to the board & tables will be clearly numbered so you just have to sit down at the right one.  If a member of your group is not staying for the meal, there will be a gap at the table at which we will try to seat sponsors, so you can make them feel welcome & chat with them.

Last year there was a problem caused by a slow group.  Please note that your group is responsible for keeping up with the group in front of you, not slowing down so the group behind can keep up!  (It is the responsibility of the lowest marker in any group following a slow group to provide polite encouragement to the slow group to catch up or let you through.)

See you there.
