The Club Captain reports on a HUGE three days of Competition at MRGC.
Members are reminded that bunkers are in play. Members should leave them in a condition how they would expect to find them should their shot land in one.
In the event of anything happening on the course, whether it be slow play or players hitting up on you, the standard operating procedure is, members should always call the Pro Shop (5457 0900) first. They can take action on the incident happening on the course. Members of the match committee can also assist where required, but rather than risk personal injuries, please follow the Standard Operating Procedure for all golf related matters.
This Saturday, 1 May will see all new local rules put in place for COVID at Maroochy River Golf Club END.
Following the latest Queensland Government announcement, the current restrictions around outdoor sports were eased on 15 April 2021.
Alexander Procopis with a score of 45 won the day with best overall score. In absolute perfect conditions, we had 129 players vying to be the inaugural Mal Robertson Champion. Robbo spent many years developing the juniors at Horton Park and it is so fitting that the best score and winner of the day belonged to a junior! Marley Habermann won the ladies event with a 39. I would like to thank Di, Robbo (jnr) and extended family for participating and being part of the celebration.
The course superintendent makes the decision regarding carts on course when he arrives at 5am daily and if necessary, it is reviewed again at 10am that same day.
This Wednesday, 17 March is St Patricks Day, so don on your shamrocks and emerald green and join the celebrations at MRGC! In the spirit of the day, we will be coordinating a special Irish 4BBB Mixed Stableford – This is a team’s event, 3-4 players. All players will play single stableford (minimum 3 players).
Some members may believe and, or are using Model Local Rule (MLR) 8E-5 as an alternative to Stroke and Distance when their ball has landed OB from the 9th tee. MLR 8E-5 allows you to take a drop in the nearest spot on the fairway within two club lengths on the edge of the fairway, no nearer to the hole where the ball crossed the OB line, with a two stroke penalty.
Congratulations to the Queensland Men’s side who proved to be too strong again, winning the Men’s State of Origin Event with a NETT score of 558. The Victorian/Tasmanian women took out the Ladies State of Origin Event. Congratulations to both teams!
