Next Game Mareeba 20 Nov


Our next game is a single stableford at Mareeba, sponsored by Drummond Golf.

I'm told the course is in great condition with green fairways despite no rain.

I'm sure Gabi will have some of her goodies available for those with a sweet tooth as usual.

See you there.

President's Report & Results Cairns 13 Oct

Hi All,

Todays game was at CGC with 76 starters consisting of 64 men & 12 ladies. There was one new member, Russell Wicks from HMBGC. Todays sponsor was BROTHERS LEAGUES CLUB and apart from the winners and runners up who will visit Brothers to enjoy their spoils it is hoped that many of our members will also visit Brothers to enjoy their faclities in the near future as their sponsorship is much appreciated by the Vets.

The weather was yet again fantastic although extremely windy and as promised on the blog prior to the game the greens were a little slow but true. I think even Ned Kelly would have had trouble beating the winning scores below. Many thanks to Jo behind the bar as the early morning coffee is appreciated by all and Anton in the Pro shop for getting us out on time.

A reminder to all that our AGM will be held at Gordonvale Golf Club in two weeks commencing at 8am to be followed by a 4BBB Stableford shotgun start immediately at the close of the AGM. All players to be registered and in their groups in readiness prior to commencement of the AGM. I have accepted a challenge to have the AGM completed within 20 minutes which was the previous record. You reading this GG?

Next weeks game will be at Mareeba Golf Club.

Robin A/Pres.

President's Report & Results Half Moon Bay 5 Nov

Hi All,

Todays game was at HMBGC with 81 starters consisting of 67 men & 14 ladies. There were two new members, Yvonne Gordon and Douglas Norris from Cairns Golf Club. Todays sponsor was the Half Moon Bay Golf Club which is very much appreciated by the FNQVGA members for not only sponsoring today`s game but for increasing the daily prizes by almost double the norm. In addition to sponsoring the game, HMBGC raffled off a slab of beer in appreciation of our support which was duly won by our hard working Treasurer John Everall.

The weather was yet again fantastic and the course great as evidenced by the scores below. Many thanks to Greg, Dale and their team for getting us out on time and without any hassles.

There was a very special mention to Harold Gibbons who turns 99 years young tomorrow on Melbourne Cup day, Harold was a staunch member of the FNQVGA for many years. Congratulations Harold, a great milestone achieved.  The pic shows Harold on the left with Brian Norris.

Next weeks game will be at Cairns Golf Club.
