Round The Traps

Round The Traps - 9th October 2019
Having trouble viewing this email? View Online
G'day Members,

Last week we kicked off a junior fundraiser program around the Containers for Change program. It’s very simple for all players to get involved by simply placing any aluminaluminum glass and plastic bottles into the blue wheelie bins at the golf shop. If using motorised carts, simply leave your recyclables in the cart until you come back in. The blue bins are clearly marked so it should be a simple revenue earner for our award winning junior program. And yes, you can even bring them in from home if you’d like to help further. If we were to collect only 50% of the recyclables sold at the club, we’d raise approximately $4000 to help fund our juniors’ programs.

Our next round of dates for mens and womens intro golf clinics for term 4 are now locked in. If you know anybody looking to get into our great game of golf, the clinics start with a free session in the 3rd week of October with more information available on our Facebook Page.

After our 3rd attempt, we were finally able to show The Greatest Showman outdoors on the big screen. Approximately 150 – 200 people attended and had a great time. Cairns Regional Council have another movie booked in for Saturday 2nd of November, showing the Nutcracker and the 4 Realms. Lock it in the diary and we’ll have more information out in the coming weeks.

The recent tee’s renovations have come up a treat, boosted by the patches of rain late last week. The turf coverage is certainly improving and with green’s reno’s pegged for Mon 28 & Tues 29th (weather dependant), the course will continue to stay in great shape going forward.

Recently we attended a Cairns Regional Council sponsored event called Sunday on Shields in the city centre. We utilised our large inflatable dart board and introduced the game to hundreds of new potential golfers. We will continue to be involved with these types of events into the future to not only promote our club, but the game of golf in the region.

Don’t forget the upcoming Annual Charity Funday on Thursday 17th October. It’s a 4BBB Medley event open to anyone with a GA Handicap…. Yes, Men too, on a Thursday! $20 comp fee and a midday shotgun start. Organise a group for a fun day out and book via the usual channels.

We have one our largest corporate days of the year on Friday 18th of October, with the Cairns Chamber of Commerce basically closing the course most of the day. While it is an inconvenience for members looking for a social game on this date, it is a massive revenue driver as well as a great advertisement of our facility to the business community of Cairns.

Hope to see you Round the Traps soon.

General Manager

Please remember to check online bookings if you are looking at playing a social game of golf at any day of the week. We have had a few members lately who have been arriving at the golf club without a booking whilst the course is booked/full with social play/corporate/charity events. With the recent good weather, we have seen a significant increase in social play so it is important to make a booking to avoid disappointment/delay.

TEST and compare the latest equipment just released from Mizuno, Titleist and Taylormade. Due to popular demand, Sam Hartvigsen from Mizuno will be at the Cairns Golf Club driving range on Friday 11th October from 1.00-5.30pm for expert club fitting. Josh Tindale from Titleist and Max Horlin from Taylormade will be on the range with from 12.00-6pm on Friday 25th October. There will be exclusive specials on the day. Bookings are essential so please contact the golf shop before all spots are taken.

The CASGC All Sporters challenge is upon us again with the best 2 of 3 rounds to determine the champion.

Greens renovations will take place on Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th October. The course for social play will be affected over these two days so please check with the golf shop staff for bookings and availability.

The grass area on the driving range will be closed until the 11th October. Due to the limited grass growth this time of year and the increase we have seen in practice from the grass, it needs this time to recover. The grass area has been sanded, aerated, fertilised and levelled and this time will allow the area to fully recover and grow back healthier than ever. We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
Registrations Now Open via the Blitz Golf App

Blitz Golf will take place at the Cairns Golf Club on Sunday 24th November 2019 @ 12.00 pm. Cost is $35 per players and is open for members and visitors with a GA handicap.

The Tournament Series is played using the 6-3-2-1 format unique to the Blitz Golf AM Series. The number of holes and field size reduce after each round with the odds of progressing getting harder.

Players are split into 2 fields per event. A Shotgun start is used and scores are reset between each round.
