Low scores prove order of day at Whitsunday Golf
WHITSUNDAY GOLF: While numbers were reduced with some members golfing overseas, 22 players braved threatening weather conditions to play the Whitsunday Golf Club Monthly Medal and least putts competition, sponsored by Airlie Panel & Paint, Master Butchers Whitsunday and the Reef Gateway Hotel.
Cloud cover kept the day cool and the rain stayed away, however the strong blustery wind made some holes difficult, but several players didn't seem to be affected and carded some excellent low scores at Proserpine.
Best dressed winners for the fancy dress game played the previous week were Joanne Moynihan, who was a very striking viking and her brother Paul Nicol who was dressed for a very glam garden party.
