Golf: 6 November at Keperra Country Golf Club

Hello everyone

Wonderful day of golf at Gailes...once again a beautiful day with an outcome reaffirming my faith in the game (not just my win, but four players on 35 same points score vying for second). Well done everyone.

Hopefully another sunny day will present itself for the next round of the 2011 season. This round is at Keperra Country Golf Club on Sunday 6 November, arrival at 6.40am for tee-off at 6.56am (and no, the nice lady would not concede 4 minutes so I could say 7.00am in this email – which would have sounded so much better). Nevertheless we are scheduled (at this stage) to play holes 1-18, the well kept part of the course!!

The address is 44 Duggan Street, Keperra. The number for the Pro-shop is 3355 7744 if you wish to book a cart.

Directions from Petrie Terrace, Brisbane City are, proceed on Petrie Terrace for approximately 1 km heading northwest, then bear left into Samford Road. Follow Samford Road for approximately 5 km. Then turn right into Gilston Street. Follow Gilston Street for another 5 km (there is a roundabout approximately 4.5 km along this road – when you reach the roundabout bear left at first exit to stay in Gilston Street). See the map below for some detail (care of the Carbrook Golf Club website). Continue into Mooney Street (this is about 100m), then turn left into Duggan Street. Keperra GC is at the end of Duggan Street, approximately 200m. At that time of morning (with all the stars in alignment and a keen sense of direction) the trip from the City should take about 20-25 minutes.

Please email (or call) as soon as possible as I need to organise numbers with Keperra one (1) week prior to the game. Remember to check the club blog for news.

Gailes game 09.10.2011

13 players attended the Gailes game, on a lovely October day, many were glad (myself included) that the rain from the previous day had made the bunkers unplayable.

With the top three players from the league missing (Ian, Mark & Rodney) two of them sporting injuries, the field was open for someone to make a move up the ladder.
Owen took advantage with a three point win over his next four (4) rivals on the day whom all scored 35pts. With some quick count back calculations by Ken we arrived at a top three.
The league table has changed quite a lot since September; I think Ian, Mark & Rodney may wish to get back in the field asap injuries permitting.
Many thanks to all those who turned up, I hope to see lots of you in the next round.

Here are the results:

1st place on 38pts – Owen Wright
2nd place on 35pts – Janine Walker
3rd place on 35pts – Fred Hill
(Also on 35pts, Jane Hughes and Dan Williams)

NTP on the 3rd – Jane Hughes
NTP on the 12th – Neville Nobody
MLD on the 18th – Dan Williams
LLD– on the 18th – Karen Greedy

Paul (Captain)
(Next game is Keperra on the 6th November 6.56pm tee)
