Southport Golf Club eNews

It is the greatest of sadness that we must advise that our esteemed Club Captain Norm Thomson passed away this morning, never having regained consciousness since having a heart attack on the practice range at Wynnum Golf Club on Monday 3rd February. If there is any consolation to be gained from this tragedy, it is that his last conscious experience was swinging a golf club. Two days before, he had won the A Grade monthly medal at his beloved club, Southport. He was truly devoted to the sport of golf and to the Club that he was proud to be the Captain of. He will be sorely missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Lesley at this most difficult time.

Norm’s funeral will be held at the Sacred Heart Church, 50 Fairway Drive, Clear Island Waters, on Friday 21st February at 12:30,  with a celebration of his life to follow at the Club.

Bernadette & Michael.


It is with sincere condolences Gold Coast District Golf Association and it’s associated members are thinking of you all and Mr Thomson’s family at this time.
