Photos of the Week: Great to see so many smiling junior golfers on the course on Sunday afternoon for round two of their matchplay championships. The afternoon of golf was followed by a pizza dinner for the children and their families on the clubhouse lawns. Thanks to Aleah Dillon for the great photos and the junior club committee for their efforts in building such a fun and vibrant club for the kids.

The club held its men's Monthly Medal for June on Saturday drawing a good-sized field of 157 players, for the event sponsored by The Investment Collective.

The course must have been set up to the liking of our greenkeeper, Peter Farley, who carded the best gross score of the day with 76.

In the graded nett awards, A Grade was won by Andrew Winter with 67, B Grade by Justin Hawley 69, and C Grade by Corey Birse 66.

Only a small field for Saturday's ladies single stroke, in which Lorry Donaldson carded the best gross score of 89, while Lyndal Della Bosca had a nett 74.

There were 114 on course for the Thursday Club's stableford event won by Willy Leifels in A Grade with nett 68, in B Grade by Michael Walker 65, and C Grade by Don Bunt 68.

The Wednesday ladies event was a 4 ball best ball standard scratch format, in which Chris Rattenbury and Jacq Sale were the best on course, pipping runners up Julie Blake and Deb Carige.

If you're in need of a bit of free advice to improve your golf, why not billet a professional and pick their brains for tricks of the trade during this year's Ian Weigh Toyota Rockhampton Pro Am?

The club currently has requests from 10 professionals seeking accommodation support in order to compete at our event - do yourself and your club a favour by contacting Ian Collins in the pro shop.

And if you're not playing in the Pro Am, why not take a back stage pass to all the action by volunteering during the event? 

The Pro Am runs from Thursday July 20th through to Sunday 23rd June. The effort put in by the volunteers in starting, spotting,  and bunker raking is a key to the success of the tournament ensuring that the field keeps moving smoothly and are able to finish each day.

We try to cover the morning from 07:00 to 12:00 and the afternoon from 12:00 to 5:00pm. If you are able to assist either in the morning, the afternoon or all day on any or all days, can you please email Andrew Longbottom or call 0419 674 936.

Please specify which days and p[referred times. Can you also include your contact details so we can contact you to confirm your roster.

Save the date of Wednesday June 26 for the RGC Annual General Meeting. Details to follow in upcoming newsletters.
