Bargara Golf Club boasts a vibrant and active Ladies membership with a current membership of 150+ and growing constantly. Our annual Bargara Ladies Classic is one of the most popular golfing events in Queensland attracting 250+ players from all over Queensland and Australia. Our ladies have regular weekly competitions on Thursdays and Saturdays and also run a Bargara Belles group who play 9 holes on a Monday morning for learners and players new to the game.
April 20th – Stroke
Our ladies were very lucky to avoid all the rain as it had almost completely passed by the time most of our Ladies teed-off. Not so lucky though for those who had decided to play early. Our smiling Easter Bunnies this week are, in Division 1 with a Nett 69, Alison Curd and, in Division 2 with a Nett 72, Jackie Beer. Janet has obviously been passing on some of her local knowledge. Well done girls.
Cancer Day 2019
Congratulations to everybody who made the effort to dress up and support the Golf Club’s Cancer Day. As you can see from the photos below everybody had a great day. Janice and Vicki combined Cancer Day and Easter for their outfits and according to Vicki they are dressing as nurses next year – should be interesting. Great work by our Ladies Committee selling raffle tickets and organising today’s event, here’s Marg and Barb trying to con me out of some money – how could I resist such smiles!! This event is always a great success so our Ladies should be proud of all the work they put into it for such a worthwhile cause.
Committee News (April 2019)

Recent Competition Winners
13th April Stableford
Nipping over the back fence for a bit of sneaky practice obviously paid off for Bernie who won D1 with 37 points in tricky wind conditions. She pipped Michelle Marsden by 1. In D2 the lesser spotted Judy Grills – too quick and elusive to get her photo taken – won with 39 points beating runner up Madelaine Bragg by 4. Judy had a great 4 pointer on the 9th hole (her last hole) as she was obviously in a hurry to get up the bar 🙂
April Monthly Medal (Saturday)
April Monthly Medal (Thursday)
It is the first of two Monthly Medals in 3 days, and cream has risen to the top. Never far away when the big competitions come round winner of Division 1 was Margaret King, by the slimmest of margins, winning on countback with a Nett 69. Perennial runner up falling one shot short again was Marg Taylor. In Division 2 Jan Rancine took the honours with a solid Nett 72 by one shot from Fiona Weekes. Fewest putts was Janine Smith with 28. For those of you who didnt quite reach your peak you’ve got another go on Saturday. We all wish Marg Zande a speedy recovery and a quick return to the Golf Course.
