Clas­sic draws in crowds

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

GOLFERS swung through Gayn­dah last­week­end for the Bar­lyne Golf Clas­sic.

There was even a touch of celebrity at the event, with Al­lan Langer drop­ping in to have a chat with the lo­cals and vis­i­tors.

The Bar­lyne Golf Clas­sic is a huge fundraiser for the Gayn­dah Golf Club and was held on Satur­day, May 11.

Af­ter sig­nif­i­cant re­pairs fol­low­ing the Aus­tralia Day floods, the club house was op­er­a­tional and packed wall to wall. It was the first time the bar has opened since the floods and 69 golfers made the most of the fa­cil­i­ties.

Play­ers at­tended from Gayn­dah, Mun­dub­bera, Her­vey Bay, Bris­bane and Noosa.

The lo­cal con­tin­gent fea­tured heav­ily on the win­ners’ board, with Gayn­dah golfers Phil Dun­can, James Dun­can and Stephen Zahl tak­ing first place with 51 ½ nett.

Sec­ond place also went to the lo­cals; with Mick Coul­son, Clin­ton Slack and Ben Slack fin­ish­ing on 51 5/6 nett.
