Good evening to all NALG QLD Members and Supporters,
NALG QLD 2021 is shaping up to be a fantastic year ahead! There will be some changes, some new ventures but most of all the NALG QLD golfing atmosphere will be as amazing as ever!
Included in this email is President Col Clark’s report including the AGM information, the Graham Kelly Cup results and the calendar ahead.
The newly elected Treasurer/Secretary Annie Findley is currently transitioning into this NALG QLD role. Annie is in the process of setting up a new lefties email and all members will be informed of the new contact details for NALG QLD in the near future. Until then, I will continue to support Annie and NALG QLD through this transition phase.
NALG QLD PRESIDENT REPORT
AGM for Queensland branch or the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF LEFT HANDED GOLFERS was held at the Keperra golf club on the 28th of March at 8.30 am. Attendance was down but with the uncertainty of conditions that is happening with covid and lockdowns in the Brisbane area I can understand why people are a bit wary of travel.
Re-election of Col Clark as president and Jeff Hogan as captain and newly elected treasurer Annie Findley . Tony Flynn retired due to commitments and am sorry to see him leave.
The main topic of discussion was 2022 National Titles to be held at Coolangatta/Tweed Heads golf club that will be run by the Queensland branch of NALGA. A sub-committee was formed so will be in close contact to put this together and we will keep all members informed as we go along....will be a great event for members and families from 13th to 18th November 2022 (dates to be confirmed).
Do not forget the National titles in Tocumwal down on the MURRAY Monday 15th November to Friday, 19th November, 2021 and booking accommodation is vital.
I am very pleased to inform all our members that our lady of golf, a tireless worker and supporter was made a life member. Congratulations to Janice Andrewartha! Between Janice and husband John we wish to thank you for your long time support and readers don’t forget their great weekend of golf at Hervey Bay in December.

On behalf of NALG QLD, President Colin Clark would like congratulate Lawry Flynn, who has been part of the NALG QLD family since he started swinging that lefty driver down the many fairways from age 9, on his stellar performance at the recent ISUZU QLD OPEN PGA event played at Pelican Waters. Lawry, now aged 23, finished Tied 8th at 14 under, against a quality professional field, to claim the 'Low Amateur' title! He is currently part of the Golf Australia QLD Academy of Sport (GOLF) and after the upcoming NSW OPEN at the end of March, Lawry plans to head to the PGA of Australasia Q-School in April aiming to achieve his PGA Tour Card status. NALG QLD look forward to following Lawry's next phase of his golfing pathway.
Lawry would like to thank the many NALG QLD members who ventured to Pelican Waters last week to support him at the ISUZU QLD OPEN.
