SATUR­DAY’S Ag Traders open golf day at the Biggen­den Golf Club saw 45 men and women hit­ting the links.

Ag Traders’ Deb­bie Framp­ton said ev­ery­one had a good time and it was a great suc­cess.

“Be­ing a new busi­ness in the town, the day was our way of get­ting our name out there and giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity,” she said.

“It was a learn­ing curve but we will make this day an an­nual event.

“Biggen­den State School will ben­e­fit from the day but next year we will do­nate to an­other dis­trict school.”

Forty-five golfers lined up for the day, in­clud­ing many of the busi­nesses’ reps.

“Five of those reps joined in and handed out giveaways dur­ing the af­ter­noon,” Ms Framp­ton said.

The win­ning team was Werner Bern, Bill Mack­ley and Gor­don Dowl­ing.

Run­ners-up were Ian Roux­ell, Gra­ham Proc­tor and Ron Roberts and third, Gor­don Down­ing, Jon Vi­cary and Mike Framp­ton.
