.CHANGE OF DATE FOR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND.   The club championship qualifying round scheduled to be played on the 30th April  ( May Day Long Weekend)  has been changed to Saturday 21st of May.  North Queensland Golf has scheduled the  NQ Men’s Open on the May Day Long Weekend.   We will still hold the monthly Medal on the 30th of April.   Again I do apologise for another change of Date, but the NQ calendar had not been set when I finalised our calendar.

FOURSOMES CHAMPIONSHIPS         The original date for the FOURSOMES CHAMPIONSHIPS was on the 23rd of April, which I didn’t realise is a long weekend.  I have changed it to the 28th of May.  Sorry for any inconvenience caused to anyone with this change. 


The time sheet is open for the first of our Holden Scrambles to be held on the 7th of May. The PGA has increased the price this year to $39.50. We are going to charge $40 just to make things a bit easier. Out of that $40 the club keeps $12 and $28 goes back to the PGA. Also this year each player will receive a Callaway Cap  instead of the 6 balls. It is still a 4 person Ambrose and we will be playing in groups of 8. Visitors are welcome to play, but there must be at least 2 Black Springs members in the group.
