Skies clear to allow tight contest

WHITSUNDAY GOLF: Overnight rain and morning showers along with overcast skies made the Whitsunday Golf Club Sunday Stableford competition look unlikely, but skies cleared and a field of 29 made it on to the course.

Most players finished their game early enough to miss the deluge, but the last group were caught on the 15th in the late morning downpour and abandoned the last three holes.

Scores were close and play was to a commendable standard on a course in very good condition.
