How's this for a 'fancy' competition?

WHITSUNDAY GOLF: Things looked a little different last Sunday when 30 players ventured onto Proserpine Golf Club in Whitsunday Golf Club's "Fancy Dress" two-ball Ambrose competition.

Ron Jamieson featured as a very creditable Serena Williams.

Three local teachers, guest players, who took out winnings of their own, joined in the fun of fancy dress, a different introduction to the very social golf game.

There were some interesting swings and putting actions as those unused to long skirts in the breeze tried to play their shots.

However, even so, it was a tight finish with the second to fourth places decided on countbacks.
