Port Dou­glas car­a­van parks turn to turf war­fare

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Shane Ni­chols

A new golf chal­lenge kicked off at the Mi­rage Coun­try Club last Fri­day.

It was the in­au­gu­ral Glen­garry Chal­lenge, pit­ting the Mow­bray car­a­van park against Tropic Breeze’s squad of golfers.

It was the brain­child of Glen­garry vis­i­tor Louise Cole, of NSW, a fairly re­cent new­comer to the sport who says it has re­ally got­ten un­der her skin.

“It started be­cause we had a few golfers and I thought ‘well, why don’t we start a lit­tle com­pe­ti­tion’?

“I ap­proached the own­ers – Margy and Max Brady – who are lovely peo­ple and they said they’d do­nate this and that, and then I went around and saw quite a few dif­fer­ent peo­ple to get this off the ground.’

A friend who is stay­ing at Tropic Breeze lined up some golfers to make up their team, and al­to­gether 35 peo­ple turned up for the chal­lenge day.

“They al­ready want to do it again next year,” said Louise.

“I want to thank all the kind spon­sors who didn’t know me at all yet they very gen­er­ously gave and sup­ported this event.
