Getting into swing of things at annual golf carnival
GOLF: More than 80 players competed in the annual Gayndah Golf Carnival at the weekend.
From Mundubbera, Mount Perry, Monto, Biggenden, Isis, Bundaberg, Maryborough and Bargara players competed in the 18-hole competition.
President of the Gayndah Golf Club Mick Coulson said he was happy with how the weekend turned out.
"The course is looking good, we received lots of positive feedback from players and are looking forward to the next carnival,” Coulson said.
"This year the club is celebrating 90 years and we had Lindsay Baker who was celebrating his 90th birthday so he cut the cake alongside the Wide Bay president.”
Coulson said the club was hoping for around 100 golfers but due to the wet weather, believes some players were hindered.
"We didn't quite make it to the 100 mark with attendance but it could have been due to the weather,” he said.
"It didn't rain on Sunday and was blue sky for all the golfers, we couldn't have asked for a better day for playing golf.”
A group near Toowoomba competed with one of the golfers taking out the B-grade Nett.
Coulson said he would like to thank all volunteers and club sponsors.
"I'd like to thank our major sponsor Craig Swift who's our club pro and he was there at the carnival,” he said.
"Thank you to the wonderful ladies who helped out in the kitchen preparing all the food, the club sponsors and those who sponsored the event and to the golf committee for ensuring the course was in good condition.”
The Jan Brown memorial is taking place this weekend and it will be a 4-Ball ambrose.
Registration starts at 10am for a 10.30am tee-off time.
