Where Can I Practice?

I need to hone my skills - where can I do it here at NGC?

We have a great golf course at Nambour - but we do suffer from the lack of good practice areas. We used to practise hitting back down number 9 fairway, but with so many brutes here, it became dangerous for players on #9!  So that area was closed to practice. So where can we now practice?

  • Use the nets at the entrance way - probably the only place where you can practise your full swing with long irons or a driver.
    • There is a practice green behind the proshop - here you can practise from chips to bunker shots to full shots with you short irons (say from Sand Iron to 9 iron.) Good to practise hitting from unlevel lies too, because there is not much level land in this area.

    • The putting green adjacent to the first tee - obviously for putting, and those near-green approach chips.
    • There is another area beside the 17th tee, where you can hit mid irons across to the turf nursery to the left of the 17th green. Not being able to hit balls from this area when players are on the 17th hole is a drawback, but you can soon practice17work out the best time to practise here.

      Ross Jackson was so pleased with himself on Wednesday (14/10) that he started buying beers for any other players who came into the clubhouse. How do you get that pleased?

      Mike Peall Hole in One

      Mike Peal doesn't stay out of action for long - even with a huge number of stitches in his leg. He showed me the wound from a sharp stick spiking his shin and peeling back the skin  - painful! Golf is dangerous!

      But the next golf day he holed out again! He had his last/previous hole in one November 2019.
