Excellent scores order of the day
WHITSUNDAY GOLF: There was a smaller field than usual with ladies pennants players away, but the 19 Whitsunday golfers who competed achieved some excellent scores in the single Stableford last Sunday.
A three-way tie on 40 points for the men's A-grade required a countback, close scoring in the men's B-grade gave the win to Peter Browning on 38 points, with Pam Casey winning the ladies' competition with 35 points.
The course is in such wonderful condition, due the hard work and diligence of the ground staff and volunteers that look after it so well despite the best efforts of Mother Nature to keep them on their toes.
