G'day Members,

The River Insurance Brokers City of Cairns Entries are flying in thick and fast, in particular for the Mens 54 Hole Event with over 165 players already on the sheet, exactly 3 weeks out. We’ve also recently announced that PGA Legend Peter Senior will be a special guest on Friday the 3rd of August. Peter will be teeing off at 12:20pm on the 10th tee so if you are not playing in the event, it’s a great opportunity to watch one of Australian Golf’s true champions, play your home course. Peter will also be a guest at a Junior Clinic on the following Saturday morning and a big thanks goes to our good friends at Ez-Go Australia for their assistance in getting to Peter to our event. The Womens 36 Hole Event also has a special incentive with every player receive complimentary entry for 2 (value $50) to the Cairns Cup Ladies Day at Cannon Park on Saturday 4th of August. A big thanks to Cairns Jockey Club for their support.

A new addition to this years Rivers Insurance Brokers City of Cairns will be Friday Night on the Green. Held on Friday 3rd of August, Cairns Regional Council will be showing a free kids movie, the Disney hit COCO on the Driving Range from 7pm. We are also holding a Long Drive Competition under floodlights down the 10th fairway between 6 – 7pm. We’re going to have food vendors and entertainment as well so it’s a great opportunity to bring the family to the Club for a night out. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more information.

Don’t forget this Sunday is Round 4 of BDO Sunday Stableford Superleague. Even if you haven’t participated yet, you can join in this weekend as your best 3 rounds (of total 6 rounds) are used to calculate results for the overall prizes. It’s also a good opportunity if you have friends at other clubs in the region to invite them to play CGC for the comp fee only $20 and carts at Members prices.

Good luck to the CGC Women playing at this weekend’s FNQLDGA Open event at Atherton GC and a big pat on the back to Frank Power who took out the Mens version last weekend at Gordonvale. Frank’s one shot win secured himself an entry into the Isuzu Qld Open and CGC Junior Saxonn Capilos picked up the Junior Award and Phil Henricks took out the Senior Title.

The FNQGA (Mens) Executive earlier this week cancelled a planned Special General Meeting that was to be held in Atherton on Saturday that was to repeal and adopt a new Constitution. A number of clubs including Cairns GC raised several issues ahead of the meeting which resulted in its cancellation. It is hoped that some discussions and more consultation can take place to update a document more in tune with all Clubs expectations across our wide and varied region that covers Weipa to the North, Cardwell to the South and West to Karumba.

If you haven’t been out on course lately, you are missing out because the course is in great shape and the weather is simply magic!

Hope to see you Round the Traps!

General Manager

Be on the lookout for all new and exciting product from Under Armour at the Cairns Golf Club. I expect the stock to arrive in the next couple of weeks so keep an eye out for this fantastic new product worn by the likes of Jordan Spieth (Golf), Tom Brady (NFL), Stephen Curry (Basketball) and Michael Phelps (Swimming)

The Cairns Golf Club hosted the Solahart Cairns Junior Open last Friday. We had over 50 participants from around the region including Weipa. Congratulations to all place getters and I’m sure all the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Full results can be found on the notice board at the end of the bar. A massive thank you to our sponsors of the junior program Solahart Cairns, Picconnes IGA and AAB office equipment. Your support is greatly appreciated.


Cairns Golf Club member Frank Power has turned on the power and has claimed a 1 stroke victory over Will Florimo to take out the 2018 FNQ Championships at Gordonvale Golf Club on the weekend. With rounds of 69, 68 (3 under par total) Frank has now earned a spot for the Izuzu QLD Open and I have no doubt he will do the Cairns Golf Club proud. Well done and well deserved Frank. Saxonn Capilos (13 years old) has also taken out the junior gross division with rounds of 79, 73 and Phil Henricks won the seniors gross division with 72 &76. A great weekend for CGC members!!
The Cairns Golf Club 4BBB Stroke Club championships take place on the weekend of the 21st & 22nd July. It’s a 36 hole honour board event so grab a partner and book yourself in online or in the golf shop. If you will to play just the Saturday, you can still nominate and be eligible for the daily prizes.

City of Cairns nominations are out and spots are filling very quickly. This year we have decided to change from the mixed 4BBB on opening day. This will allow women/women and men/men teams to try boost numbers as we have found in the past we haven’t had enough women golfers to play with the men. Hopefully this encourages a larger playing field for the opening event of the 2018 Rivers Insurance City of Cairns Golf Week.

Just a reminder the next round is this Sunday 15th July at 12.30pm (Shotgun). The best 3 rounds from 6 count towards the overall champions prizes so it’s not too late to join in on the fun.
