Innisfail Golf Club results

Caine Cockle was one of four FNQ junior golfers to be presented with their Gary Player Classic shirts.

IT has been great to see some good weather and thanks to the Innisfail Golf Club’s grounds crew, the course is in fantastic condition.


The committee has approved a contractor to remove the milky pine. This work will be scheduled for next week.


The temporary tees will be in place until the work and repairs have been completed on the sixth tee.


Last week’s IGC Rules and Etiquette quiz and answer:


In match play, ‘Lombo’ has teed off from outside the teeing area when starting the first hole. The penalty for the ‘Ice Man’ is loss of hole.


True or False?


Answer: False. When starting a hole in match play, there is no penalty for playing from outside the teeing area, however the opponent (Craig) may cancel the stroke and require ‘Lombo’ to play from inside the teeing area. (Rule 6.1b)


This week’s Quiz:


Blake started the Monthly Medal (stroke play) with 13 clubs. During the front nine, Blake broke his putter in anger. 


After the ninth 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 two stroke penalties for the next two holes

C – Blake is disqualified


The answer was revealed last Saturday, and all correct answers went into the draw for a Titleist Pro V1.
