Just moved to Townsville and was wondering does anyone know if any of the Golf clubs run open comps on the weekends?

Sunday comps are "open" at most of the clubs I believe.

Hi Shaun. Welcome to " Sunny" townsville. All 3 clubs will allow you to enter thier club competitions.The only bar to this is for monthly medals were visitors may not win the prizes I am a long time member at the Willows & would be very happy to join you for a round there & show you our great golf course. Next saturday is Monthly medal final day for which I am already booked but any pther weekend time would suit. There are 4 or 5 ISG members that are also members at the Willows so should not be difficult to get a round or 2 in.

Hey Shaun and welcome to Townsville. I am also a Willows member and play alot of midweek rounds(not comp) as I am a Baker and usually knock off around lunch. Your in luck in the fact that alot of courses are within 1-4hrs max of city. Locally there is Willows, Townsville, Rowes Bay, Army and Magnetic Island. Within a hour drive you have Mystic Sands, Ayr, HomeHill and Ingham. Within 4hrs North and South are quality courses like Laguna and Paradise Palms. Then region is littered with little treasures like Cardwell, Bowen and El arish just to name a few. Except for the current weather we are also blessed to have the best yearly weather for golf. Rowes Bay backs onto the town common so if you want to play with Kangaroos, goannas etc its pretty much a given if you go early enough. I too would be happy to play a round with you....if not tending to the brood of kiddies.

Let me know if you need someone to play a round with to get your cards in. Willows is the best of the three courses IMO. And I am not the least bit Biased. Much!!!!! :-)

There are a few of us Willows boys lurking. Stick your name down on a Saturday around 11am and you will probably get me or Pom as a partner. Other days by arrangement. Willows is starting to show through the mud and slush of the last 4 months. Today was pretty good and the greens were fast and true.
