G'day Members,

Last week was massive for the Club with the Schweppes Cairns Open on the weekend and the Bulls Masters Corporate day last Friday.

All of the CGC team put in a massive week to make the Schweppes Cairns Open the success it was. I can’t thank all of our staff enough for really going the extra mile to make the event what it was. The player feedback was fantastic around all aspects of our Club and the event. Our VIP guest, PGA Legend Craig Parry, was an absolute gentleman and a pleasure to have around the facility over the weekend. He conducted a Junior Clinic for 25 kids on Saturday which was simply a masterclass of golf. I’m not sure who was more impressed…the kids, the parents...or Jason Roach & Anton Booy.

The course really came up a treat for the event and a tip of the cap to all our Grounds Crew who went above and beyond in the period leading up to the event, especially given the heavy rainfall events earlier this year. A special thanks to CGC Member Colin Johannsen for his efforts with the line marking around the course for the week. It’s the little things that make such a massive difference.

The Schweppes Cairns Open has come a long way in the 4 years since its re-introduction and the calibre of field was impressive. The sold out event bodes well for tournament golf at our Club and in the region. Next up, the Rivers Insurance Brokers City of Cairns in early August.

This Sunday (yes its Mothers Day) but its also our next round of Free Come and Try Days for our Womens programs, Swingfit and Ladies Lets Golf. Its not too late to register so please tell all your friends! Ladies Lets Golf is at 2pm with Swingfit at 3:30pm. Please call the Golf Shop on 4037 6777 for more information on how to register.

A reminder that we are now well and truly into the peak Golf season and with a number of Corporate Events on our calendar, you must check in with the Golf Shop before playing a Social Round, in particular on Fridays. We’ve had a couple of noses out of joint recently after Members have been asked to vacate the course, in the middle of a Corporate Day.
The final Members Cash Jackpot Draw on the 27th of April was a big night with 3 x Lucky winners taking home some serious cash! The initial $3500 draw went unclaimed and after a few draws, Damon “Biff” Caldwell picked up the $1500 (and promptly put $300 on the bar), followed by Brian Price $1000 then Andrina Wilson $1000. We are still working through our options with the food offerings at the Club, but at this stage, we are not looking to directly replace the recently departed Chef Kath Vickers.

Fingers crossed we have seen the last of the wet for a while and we can all get out on course and enjoy the game we all love so much.

Hope to see you Round the Traps!

General Manager

Congratulations to Annabelle Hutchings and Frank Power who won the Schweppes Cairns Open over the weekend. This was one of the strongest fields for both the men and women I have seen and it’s great to see two local members get up for the win. Annabelle travels to Jakarta next month for the World junior championships. Good Luck Annabelle. For a full list of results, please check the link below or the results board at the end of the bar.


Craig Parry hosted a junior clinic on Saturday morning which was attended by 26 of our advanced juniors. He went above and beyond the call of duty and I’m sure all juniors thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with Craig and learnt a lot in regards to tournament preparation and warm up. Craig also offered all the kids advice with their golf swings. It was fantastic to see someone of Craig calibre hitting golf balls on the range at the Cairns Golf Club.

Congratulations to CGC junior Angel Pizzichemi who attended the Australian Junior Age Championships at Capricorn resort during the school holidays. Angel went on to win the gold medal by 7 strokes in the girls 11-12 years category. Well done Angel on a fantastic achievement.
