Hello everyone 

The next game is at Gailes Golf Club on Sunday 15, arrival at 7.00am for tee-off at 7.15am.  The address is 229 Wilruna Street, Wacol, opposite Gailes Railway Station.  The number of the Pro Shop is 3271 1045 if you wish to book a cart. 

To get there from the city, take the Ipswich Motorway and exit at Progress Rd, Wacol, cross the motorway and railway line, and turn left into Wilruna St. To get there from the east (Sunnybank/Algester), take Learoyd Rd - Inala Ave - Progress Rd and follow the above directions. If you come along Logan Motorway, I have no idea how you cross Ipswich Motorway, you're on your own - players attempting this route have been lost never to be seen again! Please email or call me as soon as possible to let me know if you are playing in th this game so I can inform the Gailes Pro Shop of the numbers.

Remember to check the Club blog for news and photos. Please email (or call) as soon as possible if you are attending the game so I can organise numbers with Gailes. Remember to check the club blog for news.

Logan City game 17th June 2012

Logan City game 17th June 2012.

It seemed on the face of it that we were in for a nice stroll in the sun for the Logan game, but alas there must have been a much localised flood of biblical proportions recently as the greens were more browns & the fairways were decidedly unfair. This is unfortunate as Logan are always generous to social clubs and I’m sure are doing their very best with the course, they just battle hard against the flood plain that is Logan City Golf course.
Never mind we all didn’t want to sit at home & watch the US open unfold (Oh I forgot you can’t see that on normal TV, well done networks)

Needless to say the scoring was not the highest that we have had, perhaps instead of a four club game we should have had a four wheel drive game.
I hope everyone enjoyed the monster par 3 on the back nine (Ian measured it at 65mts)

It turned out to be another very close finish with only one point between the top six & the rest were not too far behind.
Well done to David Westover, his consistent swing & steady calm nerves took the prize when all around were losing it in the face of the Logan challenge.

Here are the results for Logan City:

1st place on 32pts – David Westover 
2nd place on count back, 32pts – Paul Lockwood - Lee 
3rd place on 31pts – Ian Smith
(Tied for third also on 31pts but missing out on count back: Chris Walker, Mark Coster and David Coster)

NTP on the 3rd – Not taken
NTP on the 17th – Not taken
Men’s L/D 16th – Mark Coster
Ladies L/D 16th – Not taken

Next game is at Gailes on the 15th of July.
Let’s hope for no rain, good playing conditions and Green Greens.

Golf: 17 June at Logan City Golf Club (4 clubs only)

Hello everyone

Almost half way through the year with another round of the 2012 season upon us!! This game is at Logan City Golf Club on Sunday 17 June, arrival at 7.45am for tee-off at 8.00am.  In this round you are only permitted four (4) clubs including your putter (or whatever club you choose to use as putter). In this round you also receive 12 golf balls as part of the package (yippeeee!!).

The address is Golf Course Road, Meadowbrook. The number of the pro shop is 3299 6653 (for cart bookings). Please NOTE the contact number in the yearly schedule is incorrect!!

To get there, from Brisbane CBD head south on the M1 for approximately 23km. Then, take exit 24 to Loganlea Road, Meadowbrook. This is a new exit. When you exit the M1 and proceed under the overpass and loop back around to the overpass. Follow the signs to Loganlea Road.  Follow Loganlea Road toward Logan for approximately 1.5km. Turn left into Golf Course Drive. The entrance to the Club is approximately 300m from Loganlea Road. From the Gold Coast the exit number is the same (exit 24). Take the exit and proceed to Loganlea Road. All other directions are the same.

From the city I estimate the drive time to be about 20-30 minutes (at that time of morning).
Please email me (or call) as soon as possible if you are attending the game so I can organise numbers with the club.
