GREEN renovations were completed over two days last week, at Innisfail Golf Club, by the reno crew.
The greens were solid tine aerated, scarified and double cut, then the team top-dressed the greens with a mixture of sand and lime using shovels, and mowed.
This was an enormous job and a huge thank you goes to Andrew Rose, Ian Street, Geoff Johnston, Ian McDonald, Craig Alman, Blake Thomas, and John Lombardi for all their hard work.
Gordonvale Golf Club members played at Innisfail last Saturday, as their course was closed due to the races.
This was on the same day as the Monthly Medal and an aggregate stableford was played to determine the winning club.
The second round of the FNQ Pennants was held on Sunday, September 26, and Innisfail teams did much better playing against Atherton Golf Club.
A-Grade – Trent Mann was the only winner at A1, with Allan Gould and Colin Bidgood going down to the wire, just missing out on the wins on their final hole. A-Grade went down 1/4.
Innisfail’s B-Grade team got up for the win, 3/2. Solid performances by Joel Saunders, Ian Saunderson, and Lance Masina got the team across the line.
C-Grade were victorious 3/2, on a tough Gordonvale track. Wins by Dan Carter, Wombat (Geoff) Johnston, and Josh Jones proved too tough for their opponents.
A solid effort from all players. The next stop is Cairns Golf Club on October 9, against Palmer Sea Reef.
There were only five correct answers to IGC’s Rules and Etiquette September quiz. Congratulations to James Scullen for winning the Titleist ProV1.
Last week’s quiz and answer:
Blake started Monthly Medal (stroke play) with 13 clubs. During the front 9, Blake broke his putter in anger. After the 9th hole, he purchased a new putter in the Pro shop and used it for the rest of the round. What is the ruling?
A – There is no penalty
B – Blake receives 2 stroke penalties for the next 2 holes
C – Blake is disqualified
Answer – A. There is no penalty. Since Blake started with 13 clubs, he was entitled to add another club under Rule 4.1b(1).
This week’s Quiz:
In match play, Streety’s ball lies in a penalty area, and he takes a practice swing in the penalty area, grounding his club in the process. What is the ruling?
