Innisfail Golf Club

Jake Cockle was the winner of Friday Sporters competition on July 30.

SPECIAL thanks go to the grounds crew for maintaining the course, which is looking fantastic and is a real credit to their continued hard work.

If members see divots on the fairways that have not been filled in, or pitch marks on the greens, please take a minute to fix them as the Innisfail Open is fast approaching.

A big thank you to Stephen and the team at Vandeleur & Todd Solicitors for their continued sponsorship of the Innisfail Open.

Nominations for the Innisfail Open are now open, and members / visitors can download the nominations form via the website and send it through to Club Captain, Luke Peters.

Wednesday’s All Sporters competition eventually allows everyone to win a prize. The results from Wednesday, July 28, were as follows:

1st: Terry Saunders, 23pts.

2nd: Alan Fleay, 21pts c/b.

3rd: John Abbott, 21pts.

There were some great scores at Friday’s Sporters 9-hole competition on July 30, where Geoff Johnston had the best of the lunch-time tee offs but was pipped at the post by Jake Cockle.

1st: Jake Cockle, 21ts.

2nd: Geoff Johnston, 20pts.

3rd: Luke Peters, 19pts.

Some great matches were played in Round 2 of the Vandeleur & Todd Solicitors’ Match Play 18-hole competition on Saturday, July 31, with some impressive results. 

A special mention to Debra Smith and Glynis McGrath on their wins, both of whom will be hard to beat coming into the finals.

John (Tiny) Abbott played the best out of the thirty-six players with 38 points and won his match convincingly.

Thanks to Stephen Todd for coming up with this concept, as the match play competition has received plenty of interest from our members, who are looking forward to the finals.


1st: John Abbott, 38pts.

2nd: Ian McDonald, 36pts.

3rd: Glynis McGrath, 35pts c/b.

Innisfail junior golfers enjoyed a morning of skills, hitting some long bombs off the tee, and bunker practice. They also completed a quick Ambrose to refine those skills.

It all came down to the dice roll, with The Chicken Nuggets just getting home over Reggie’s Rosters.

Members are reminded that memberships for the 2021 and 2022 golf season are now due for renewing members and forms are available at the bar.
