G'day Members,

Apologies this edition of RTT is a little late. Many of us are finally coming up for air after the massive week that was the Rivers Insurance Brokers City of Cairns. This year’s new additions of the Westco Motors Long Drive competition and the Free Movie on the Driving Range were big hits with approx. 150 people watching CGC Member Dave Cameron hit a bomb 301 metres and 400 people on the grass on the Driving Range with the Disney animated film Coco. A big thanks goes out to our local Cairns Regional Councillor Cathy Zeiger for her assistance in getting the Movie Night to our club.

PGA Legend Peter Senior also proved a real hit and for those of you interested, he played to Par 72 and suggested he was on the wrong side of the hole all day. He had positive things to say about the course and really appreciated hearing from many different people that had seen him play over the years in different places.

Also a big tip of the cap to all the staff & volunteers (in particular Super Starters Colin & Jane Johannsen) for putting in a massive effort over the last month. The Men's 54 Hole event featured 195 players, 86 of them were A – Graders which truly shows the event draws a crack field to our club.

And of course a massive thanks goes to long time supporter, Rick Thomas and Rivers Insurance Brokers for their sponsorship of the week long event.

The “serious” golf continues next weekend with the 2018 Kahler Lawyers Club Championships. All CGC Members are invited to take part with the 4 Rounds of Stroke golf being played over 2 weekends (18th, 19th & 25th, 26th of August). The time-sheet for Week 2 of the Championship weekend has been prioritised for 4 Day Players to have 1st pick of the Time-sheet. 4 Day players are requested to fill out a Nomination form and submit (prior to Round 1) to the Golf along with preferred playing times for Week 2. The time sheet will open to all single day players (ie for Saturday 25th Aug) at Midday on Friday 17th of August. A big thanks to Chris and Michaela Kahler fo r their sponsorship of the Club Championships this year.

A reminder to all members to download the Cairns Golf Club App and/or Like our Facebook page. There are a number of things that get posted via both channels, which sometimes don’t make the newsletter. And of course we’d love to see some of your pics from your time out on the course.

If you’ve had enough “Stroke” golf this month, don’t forget we’ve got Round 5 of BDO Sunday Stableford Superleague on this Sunday. Grab a group of friends and head out for a relaxed round with a 12:30pm Shotgun start.
Hope to see you Round the Traps!

Cheers,
Matt Bolton
General Manager

JORDAN SPIETH

“I love being part of the Under Armour family because I know every time I step on the course, I'm competing in the best gear in the world. Like myself, they are always pushing the envelope and give me what I need to perform my best.”

“It’s amazing to hear Under Armour’s golf range is going to be available at the leading Pro Shops around Australia. I love traveling down under, and can’t wait to see Aussie golfers hitting the course with the world’s best golf gear.”
- Jordan Spieth

Under Armour offers Jordan the tools he needs to play his best every day. Through passion, design and the relentless pursuit of innovation, the UA team empowers Jordan at every turn. Jordan and UA share a drive for greatness and continue to make an unstoppable pairing.

Vale Ian Harris

It is with great sadness the CGC formally advises the passing of CGC Life member Ian Harris. Ian was a regular at the golf club since joining in June 1953 but health didn’t allow him to play the past year or so. Ian was one of the longest serving members of the Cairns Golf Club and those that knew him well would agree he was always up for a chat. May the drives stay long and straight and the greens roll true for you Ian and may you Rest in Peace.

A service will be held on Thursday 16th August at 1pm at St Monica’s Cathedral, Cairns. All welcome.


Thank you to Rick Thomas from Rivers Insurance Brokers for your continued support of the Cairns Golf Club.

David Cameron took out the longest drive contest for $1000 thanks to Westco Motors with a 301m bomb under lights, the event was a great success and we look forward to doing it again next year. The Golf Shop team received plenty of positive feedback from the tournament and the quality of the course was mentioned by a number of the players and visitors. Well done to the Tim and his team for the immaculate presentation of the course and all the staff at CGC for their hard work throughout the busy week and weeks leading up to the event.
