El Arish Golf


What a profound effect our rain has on sport! Tuesday’s comp on August 31 was a complete washout, but the elements behaved beautifully on the Sporters’ Publicans’ Day held on Thursday, September 2.

Our Sporters Captain, Graham Roberts, had put an incredible amount of legwork into re-instating this event.

A big thank you to all the players, who made up eighteen teams. Either by ‘good luck’ or ‘good handicapping’ only 3 shots separated the top 7 teams. Winning the trophy for the first time under current ownership was the Mission Beach Tavern’s Team 2 with 23 points. One half a stroke behind was the El Arish Tavern, with the Tully Hotel’s Team 1 on 24.3 points. The two Ladies’ Pins were won by Jo Bishop and Liz Marland and the two Men’s Pins by Greg Eales and the Aloomba Hotel Team. 

Special thanks to the Castaways Resort for the major raffle prize, which was won by Ben Kennedy. 

Overall, the response was terrific, and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves. Special thanks to Glen Cummins and XXXX for sponsoring the day and we hope to see you all again next year, possibly in May.

On Saturday, September 4, the September Monthly Medal was played. The Men’s Winners was Paul Marland on 64, with Runner-Up Ken Gear on 63. As Ken is not a member of our Club, he had to forfeit his win, but the Runner-up still paid! The Ladies’ winner was Hipas Donald with 65 and the Runner-up was Kelly Cavallaro on 66. Kelly then won Ladies NTP on #5/14. The Men’s NTP #2/11 Jake Perkins, with Rhy Camilleri taking the NPT All-In #4/14. 

Again, we thank Brothers Leagues for their 2021 Sponsorship of our Monthly Medal.

On Saturday, September 11, a Stroke event will be played. It is our Patron’s Day sponsored by Kevin Kelly and there is an impressive array of prizes to be won!!  Registration is 12.00pm; Draw at 12.15pm for a 12.30pm Tee Off.
