2019 Lexus of Cairns Golf Invitational - Palmer Sea Reef Golf Club
The Lexus of Cairns Golf Invitational took place at Palmer Sea Reef Golf Club on what turned out to be a beautiful day for golf. Just under 70 guests took part in the 18 hole event or beginner golf lessons and got to 'experience amazing' on behalf of Lexus of Cairns.
The course was in fantastic condition and good scores would be required to take out the win. In third place with a nett 59.375 was the team of Michael Reyes, Peter Strangman, David Bailey & Andrew Beck who needed a birdie on their final hole to leapfrog another team into third place. The runners up were surprised by their podium finish, especially after they were two over through their first four holes. Three birdies, two more bogeys and a high handicap however meant they would take out the runners up prize with a nett 58.75. Well done to Gordon Massey, Noeleen Massey, Greg Lennon & Maggie Christensen. The winners were cruising along at six under par through twelve holes until they struck trouble on the hardest hole on the course and made a bogey. They steadied and managed another birdie to win by a margin of exactly five shots with nett 53.75 and a fine round of 65. Congratulations to Chris Marsh (27), Alex Martins (27), Heath Williams (18) & Robert Stratton (18).
