Innisfail Golf Club

Innisfail junior golfers who competed in Atherton Junior Open and seven won prizes.

A WONDERFUL week of weather had the course in superb condition for the first rounds of the Club Championships last weekend.

Many thanks to the grounds crew for their efforts as the course was simply stunning.

Players, please remember to repair divots on the fairways and roughs, and pitch marks on the greens.

After the first round of the club championships, Ian ‘Doonga’ Rule played live music at last Saturday’s presentation night, which was enjoyed by all.

A field of 19 players were out for the Wednesday All Sporters 9-hole competition on June 2. Play was intense and well done to Caine Cockle on the win and a great effort from Peter Ryde in second place.

1st: Caine Cockle Jnr 22pts

2nd: Peter Ryde 21pts

3rd: Ian Rule 19pts

NTP: Josh Jones

On June 4, there were great numbers playing in the Friday Sporters 9-hole competition with 16 players battling it out. Jeff McGrath was the winner by one shot.

Saturday Sponsored Comps – 18 Holes

On June 5 had one of the biggest fields seen at the club, with 43 players out on the course and 15 members who battled it out for the Cairns Golf World Monthly Medal and Medal of Medals Champion.

Club Captain Luke Peters was leading the morning groups with an impressive 68 Nett, closely followed by Stephen Todd with 69 Nett, and Allan Gould at 70 Nett. 

Gould was in the hunt for the Medal of Medals win and led the players for most of the day.

The afternoon groups lit up the scoring with great rounds from Ian Street and Kevin Walsh to post a 68 Nett in a tie with Peters.


The round of the day came from Josh Jones with a magic round of 67 Nett to win the June Monthly Medal.

Walsh played extremely well and claimed the Medal of Medals Champion.

1st:  Josh Jones 67 Nett

2nd:  Kevin Walsh 68 Nett c/b

3rd:  Luke Peters 68 Nett c/b

4th: Ian Street 68 Nett
