Next game: 10 October at Gailes Golf Club

The next game is at Gailes Golf Club at 229 Wilruna Street, Wacol, opposite Gailes railway station, on Sunday 10 October. The phone number of the pro shop there is 3271 1045.

It's another early start I'm afraid: arrival at 6.30am for tee-off at 6.45am.

Lots of wildlife on the Gailes course, bring your cameras!

If you're driving South down Ipswich Motorway, exit at Progress Road. If you're arriving from the East, it might be better to come along Progress Road and cross the Motorway near Wacol railway station. Players have had difficulty crossing Ipswich Motorway from Logan Motorway in the past because of road works. Anyone know if this is now straightforward?

In the program, we said this game might be a 4-ball best ball (4BBB) Stableford competition. For those who don't know what this means, players play in teams of two, each team member completes each hole with their own ball, and the better of the two team members' Stableford scores is the team's score for that hole. This kind of competition has the advantage that it's as fast to play as a normal single Stableford comp, that each player plays their own ball to completion, that the team element sometimes adds an extra dimension to your choice of shot, that it provides a change to the normal single Stableford comp, and that players may have a good result even if they don't play very well.

I hope as many players as possible will choose to play at Gailes. Please let me know if you intend to play. If you intend to play, please let me know whether you'd like to try the 4BBB Stableford comp or would prefer the normal single Stableford comp, and we'll go with the majority. If you say you're playing and have to withdraw afterwards, please let me know asap.

I look forward to seeing you at Gailes and to a great day.

  1. A majority of players who responded have expressed interest in playing the 4BBB Stableford comp, so that's what we'll do. (Unless we end up with only 9 players which is a very awkward number!)
