Good Afternoon to all NALG QLD Members, Families, Friends & Supporters,

Trust this NALG QLD news update finds you all well!


It was great to return to Caboolture Golf Club on 9 June 2019 with the course in fantastic condition. There was a field of 16 players and many apologies, mainly flu related or family commitments. The highlight of the day was the presence of NALGA PRESIDENT Mr Bob Murphy. I had the privilege of playing with him and had a most enjoyable day golfing. The SUBWAY platters were excellent!

I wish to thank Mr Frank Oreb and Mr Dave Just for their wonderful donation of $500 worth of Drummond Golf Vouchers for pin shots and winners at upcoming NALG QLD 2019 golf days. This donation is much appreciated by the NALG QLD Committee and the NALG QLD members.

The winners of the Caboolture day were:  

LH Winner: Robbie Moule 43 Points  (pictured with Phil Hart)
LH R/up: Brian Mahony 38 points
RH Winner: Keith Kelly 43 points

Thanks for a great day of NALG QLD golf and look forward to seeing you all at Gailes Golf Club on Sunday July 21st,
