Round The Traps - 29th November 2018

G'day Members,

Recently we had to remove the old timber decking outside the clubhouse, overlooking the 18th Green. It had become unsafe for public use and posed a danger. In the weeks leading up to its removal, we had been sourcing quotes to replace it, but now with the rusted out footings exposed, its clearly a larger job than just replacing the hardwood decking. We are looking at a number of possible options but also keeping in mind that the outdoor area just behind the deck space, will likely need some investment in the next 5 – 7 years. At this stage there are no formal plans for the outdoor area, but we need to ensure whatever is done in the deck space can be incorporated into the outdoor area.

The Cairns Golf Club AGM is on Monday 17th of December at 5:45pm. The Club received 3 x nominations for the 3 vacated positions. The incoming Board Members (pending formal ratification at the AGM) are Colin Harding, Stuart Ricketts and Sam Bush. All 3 candidates have strong business backgrounds and should add to varied mix of incumbent Board Members. Thanks also to outgoing Board Members Rick Thomas, Bob Mulligan and Col Keily for their recent years of service to our club.

Earlier this week with Cairns receiving an unprecedented Heat wave, we took the unprecedented step of closing the course to players for a few hours each day. Player safety was our ultimate concern as the Club has a duty of care to its Members and users of the facilities. We will continue to monitor the extreme temperatures but all players are asked to take extra precautions to avoid Heat Stress. Click here for more information.

Don’t forget our Christmas Dinner on Friday 14th of December. Bookings are coming in thick and fast so don’t miss out. All bookings & payments are via the Clubhouse bar.

Hope to see you Round the Traps!

Matt Bolton
General Manager

The Cairns Golf Club is holding another Westco Volkswagen Scramble on Sunday 9th December @ 12.30 Shotgun start. The event is a 4 person Elimination Ambrose and the cost is $39.50 per player with each participant receiving 6 Callaway Supersoft golf balls as part of the entry fee, and play for a range of fantastic prizes. In addition, official partners ensure that the Volkswagen Scramble participant receives value for money by providing exclusive offers. Get your team of 4 and register at www.vwscramble.com.au

Qualifiers will advance through to a Regional or State Final where they will
be joined by a PGA Professional to make a team of five and compete for the chance to win a trip of a lifetime to the Championship Final on the
Sunshine Coast.


The Cairns Golf Club matchplay champs are almost completed for 2018. It has seen very tight contests in all Grades. In A Grade, Phil Henricks has qualified for the final to play the winner of Kevin Lynch and Ross Argent (played this Saturday). Neil Hamilton is the B Grade matchplay champion after defeating Michael Peters 2&1 and Oni Vuniyaro is the C Grade club champion and matchplay champion after defeating Gordon Massey 2&1. Well done guys on a fantastic achievement.

The Cairns Golf Club juniors will be hosting their Christmas party on Sunday 9th December from 9am. This will include a parent/child Ambrose followed by a sausage sizzle and raffles on the driving range. We also have a large waterslide and animal play area on one half of the driving range (closest to the shop) however the matts will still be available on the far side to hit from. Raffle tickets will be sold on Saturday 8th of December to raise money for the award winning CGC junior program and a chance to win great prizes.

I must say well done to all players in the Wednesday and Saturday competitions as we have started to see our pace of play improve. We certainly are not perfect yet but it is great to see you all making a conscious effort to improve in this area. Remember to keep up to the group in front at all times and your actions affect all groups playing behind you and the enjoyment of their game.

It seems to be a common practice of members booking on the 1st tee and not on the 10th tee (Wednesday and Saturday). We have had instances where the 1st tee is completely full and the 10th tee has been only half booked. In this case all players that teed off from the 1st tee will have a slower round than the groups teeing off from the 10th tee at the same time due to congestion. Please be mindful of this help us even out the groups. The Golf Professionals whom act as the competition starters have the right to move groups over to the 10th tee (weather this is preferred or not) to equalise the field and allow an acceptable pace of play and enjoyment of the game for all.


Anyone that has spare old drivers at home they no longer need/want and are happy to donate them to the Golf Club. These drivers will be used for the guests coming to use the driving range facilities. Any generosity will be greatly appreciated. Please drop into the golf shop if this is you.
