G'day Members,

Our St Patrick’s Day celebrations last Wednesday seemed to go down really well with everyone getting in to the spirit by wearing green, enjoying the steak & Guinness pies and knocking back a Guinness or two.

A big thank you to the group of volunteers that helped out on the Driving Range last Thursday. They removed around 1500 plugged golf balls. Thanks to Colin Johannsen, David Wood, Ray Greig, Ron Barnes, Mark Buckle, Max Troynar, Jack Murray, Rick Evans and Kay Cleland. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Our Annual Trivia Night went off without a hitch on Friday night. We ended up being fully booked out with 12 teams. Thank you to CGC Member Salvatore Ambrosino from Tony’s Pizzas for supporting this event again.

With Easter being next week, the Golf Shop hours will remain as per normal. The Clubhouse however will be closed on Good Friday, with other long-weekend hours dependent on the weather. Just a reminder that we are prohibited from supplying alcohol on Good Friday.

Don’t forget to book in for the Masters Breakfast on Monday 12th April. The Clubhouse will be open from 6am screening the golf, breakfast at 7am and 9-hole competition to follow, with a chance to get your name on our own Green Jacket. Please contact the Golf Shop for bookings.

The 2021 Piccones Cairns Open is fast-approaching and nominations are now open via Golf Genius.

This event will be run on Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd May, proudly sponsored again by Piccones Family of Companies.

Hope to see you round the traps!
