Next game: Gailes

The next game for the year will be held at Gailes Golf Club, 229 Wilruna Street, Wacol, on Sunday 5 July.
Arrival time is 7.15am for tee-off at 7.30am.
The phone number of the Pro Shop there is 3271 1045.To get to Gailes Golf Club, Cross Ipswich Mwy at Progress Rd, Wacol. The course is opposite Gailes Railway Stn. Don't try crossing the Mwy in the Ipswich direction from Gailes because road works may make this impossible.
Let's hope we have drier weather than we did last game!
Please let me know by the end of this week whether or not you are playing, so I can inform Gailes of our numbers a week ahead, as they request.As usual, first come first served. I may have to add players after 16 to a waiting list. If you discover the week before, even the day before, that you can't play after all, please, please let me or Paul (0403 901 344) know as soon as possible, to give any players on the waiting list a chance to play.
I look forward to seeing you at Gailes.

Last game @ Pacific

Amazing weather on the day, sunny, stormy, sunny. The course was a bit soft in parts and the rain contributed to make a tough course even harder.
A number of players pulled out due to weather - but those who soldiered on had good conditions.

Winner: Ken Greedy 33pts
R/U: Ian Smith 31pts
3rd: George Chapman
Nearest the pins: George 2, Ian Smith
Long drives: Karen Greedy & Ian Smith


Ken just makes them up! - but maybe we will post the updated list here....

About the club

"The club has some 20-30 members. About 12-16 turn up at each game.
We play a game at a different course one Sunday each month. We play a Stableford competition.
Once a year we splash out, hire electric carts, play an Ambrose competition at a nicer course than usual, and have lunch afterwards.
The winner of the monthly competition receives the massive prize of 3 golf balls! Some members are only loosely connected to GU. Men's handicaps range from 20 to 36, women's from 20 to 45, so there are no really strong players, at least not recently.
Last year, annual membership was $30 and green fees were $30 each round. I suspect that this year the green fees will go up a few dollars. Players can play twice with the club to try it out before joining, but after that they have to join if they wish to continue playing.
I ask members to give me a definite answer as to whether or not they're playing a week before each game. The golf courses require exact numbers a week in advance." Rodney Topor (Secretary)
