Golf: 10 February at Virginia Golf Club

Hello everyone and welcome to 2013!!!

As I write this email the sun has broken through the clouds and the long term forecast is looking pretty good (I seem to remember penning a similar line last year - these wet starts to the year have to stop!!). Anyway, hopefully all will be well for our first game of 2013. I’m sure everyone is looking forward to another great year (especially Paul - who I know wants to enact revenge on Mark for taking out the trophy) with the first round at Virginia Golf Club on Sunday 10 February, arrival at 6.48am for tee-off at 7.03am (from the 10th tee).

The address is Elliott Road, Virginia. The number for the Pro-shop is 3267 7057 if you wish to book a cart.

To get there follow the Gateway motorway north from the Sir Leo Hielscher Bridges (nee Gateway bridge). Approximately 9kms north of the Sir Leo Hielscher Bridges take the Nudgee exit (where the Shell Service Station is located). Approximately 100 metres after exiting you will reach a t-intersection, this is Nudgee Road. Turn right into Nudgee Road. This will lead you back to the Gateway Motorway (approximately 500 metres). Just before you reach the motorway, turn left into Childs Road. Follow Childs Rd for about 500 metres and you will reach the intersection of St Vincents Road. Turn left. Follow St Vincents Road for about 2 kilometres and turn right into Blizinger Road. Follow Blizinger Road (about 500 mteres) to the entrance of Virginia Golf Club. If you are heading in from the north, take the Nudgee Road exit and then turn right over the Motorway into Nudgee Road. Cross the bridge over the Motorway and immediately turn right into Childs Road. Follow the directions as above to Virginia. If you want to travel from the city direction, my best suggestion is to purchase a referdex or satnav, there are too many turns and twists to describe in this email!! From the city I estimate the drive time to be about 20 minutes (at that time of morning).

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