PGA professional Luke Newman from Drummond Golf passed on valuable golfing tips to Innisfail junior golfers at a coaching clinic.

LAST week the weather cooperated and the grounds crew have worked extremely hard to get the course looking amazing which is very much appreciated.Members and social players are reminded to please repair their divots on the fairways/roughs and pitch marks on the greens.

Saturday’s sponsored 18-hole competition, the Peak Aviation Stableford was held with a special thanks to Ian Saunderson and Peak Aviation Services for their continued support.

The Eagle has landed and well done to Allan Gould for hitting one around the trees on Hole 4 and rolling it into the hole for an unlikely Eagle.

The course was playing hard with the best scores coming on for the day at even par 36 points.

One of Innisfail’s newest members Blake Thomas held his own to fend off Stephen Todd in a count back.


1st: Blake Thomas 36pts

2nd:  Stephen Todd 36pts

3rd: Marc Di Carlo 35pts

Innisfail juniors were keen to get on the course but had limited time due to impending wet weather. The teams shot out on the course for a fun Ambrose over 4 holes which brought out their competitive streak.

One shot separated all three teams after play and it came down to the much anticipated dice roll for handicaps. Team FACO’S got the win after rolling five for handicap.

Junior golfers travelled up the hill on Sunday to play in the Atherton Junior Open.
