Innisfail Golf Club results

Some of the Innisfail Golf Club’s Junior Award winners.

WHILE the weather has been unfriendly over the last couple of weeks, the sun has been shining and players are hopeful the fine weather hangs around so they can get some golf in leading up to the club championships.

The grounds crew have been working extremely hard to get our course looking a million bucks and they have completed the installation of the new mower reels on the John Deer fairway mower. This was a massive job, so thanks to all for the hard work.

Members and social players are reminded to please repair their divots on the fairways/roughs and to repair their pitch marks on the greens.

Membership renewals for the 2021 – 2022 golf season will be payable from this week.  There has been a 5% increase this year for all memberships.  Membership forms are available at the bar in the clubhouse.

A field of 20 players were out for the 9-hole Wednesday All Sporters. Scoring was fierce and well done to Phil Enright on the win.

1st: Phil Enright, 21pts.

2nd: Alan Fleay, 20pts c/b.

3rd: Kevin Walsh, 20pts.

Addi Butorac was the star from the Friday Sporters 9-hole competition. shooting a par round of 22 points, a score that would be hard to beat.  Josh Jones and Matthew Barclay came close on 21 and 22 points, respectively.

1st: Addi Butorac, 22pts.

2nd: Josh Jones, 21pts.

3rd: Matthew Barclay, 20pts.

Special thanks to Sacoa for their continued support.  The field for Saturday’s 18-hole Single Stableford sponsored competition on May 22 was quite good despite the conditions.

The best scores from the morning group saw a tie between Paul Tattam and Ian Saunderson, but the best was yet to come from the afternoon groups.

Lehtsalu played well to post 35 points; James Scullen played a little better to get to 36 points; but the winner of the day, with 37 points, was Josh Jones, who is currently on a bit of a hot streak. 

1st: Josh Jones, 37pts.

2nd: James Scullen, 36pts.

3rd: Rauno Lehtsalu, 35pts.

Innisfail Junior golfers tried their best to get out on the course on Sunday but were interrupted by the rain.  They completed some putting drills in the clubhouse and had their presentations from the 2020 golf season.

Congratulations to all our Juniors who competed over the year, it has been great watching them all develop their skills.

Sam Costello and Regina Gattera were named the Mark Walker Most Improved Boy and Girl Junior Golfers for the 2020 season.
