Golf: 14 August at Royal Pines (RACV) Resort

Hello everyone

A great day of golf at Nudgee...everyone seemed to enjoy the day (even the grumpy ones who were held up!!!) ...combined with some controversial scorings by our illustrious Captain – perhaps a fitting end to the putting competition.

I’m sure everyone is looking forward to another sunny day for the next round of the 2011 season. This round is at Royal Pines Resort (Ladies Masters course) on Sunday 14 August, arrival at 8.10am for tee-off at 8.40am. These late starts are wonderful!

The address is Ross Street, Ashmore. The number is 1800 886 880. However, carts are booked and represent a part of the $60 per head fee for the club.

Directions from Brisbane City are, enter the M1 motorway and proceed approximately 70kms toward the Gold Coast. Take Exit 71 (Nerang-Broadbeach Rd) and merge heading toward Broadbeach. Drive about 4kms and turn left into Birmingham Rd. Birmingham Rd becomes Ross Street (a quirk of city planning!!) after about 300 metres. Follow Ross Street for about 1km and turn left into Royal Pines Resort (this entrance loops back up over Ross Street). Follow the signs to the Golf Pro Shop. Remember to stop at what I call the golf valet service. The friendly staff will whisk away your bag for loading to your cart....very nice!!!

This is a member only competition, so first in best dressed. We have a capacity of 20 for this round so we can invite guests once member numbers are finalised. I look forward to hearing from you soon and remember to check the club blog for news updates.

Nudgee South course game 17.07.2011

Nudgee South course game 17.07.2011

Yippee, sunshine & dry, it can’t have been our day for golf surely?
A small chill in the air for the first couple of holes, but then it was Queensland winter golf from then on in.
The scores were very good for the leaders today, so it will be good to see the handicapper get his claws into them (naturally I wouldn’t be saying that if I could have held it together over the closing 4-5 holes)
Special mention to Janine Walker, who due to my confusion in the scoring tent, was not given her rightfully won accolades in the correct manner, so apologies & congratulations to her, great scoring Janine.  
Also to Chris Walker (no relation to Janine) who was in my group & played a great steady game to come home with his best score for a long time (if ever) well done Chris.
And finally it was nice to see some new faces on the day they who helped push our numbers up to 15 which made for a good competitive day, don’t be strangers we would love to see you back again soon. 

Thanks to all for turning up, hope to see you at Royal Pines on the 14th August,
