GOLF: Gayn­dah Golf Club of­fers a range of games each week that cater to any player of any skill level, with Thurs­day bring­ing in the big­gest va­ri­ety of play­ers.

Tues­day is the vet­er­ans’ day but Thurs­day is open to all ages and skills lev­els.

Long-time Gayn­dah Golf Club mem­ber Norma Burns has seen a lot of changes in her 30 years with the club but also no­tices some things that stay the same.

“This course used to have the dirt greens which have their own set of chal­lenges,” Burns said.

“It can be trick­ier to judge the ball on the dirt so, when the grass greens were in­tro­duced, it be­came so much bet­ter.”

Burns rel­ishes the chance to get among the golf­ing com­mu­nity and has been a reg­u­lar at the club since mov­ing to Gayn­dah.

“I’ve played with other clubs be­fore but Gayn­dah has a great so­cial at­mos­phere,” burns said.

“And the ladies here have all be­come good friends over the years too.” If you’d like to play in the Thurs­day or week­end games, you can phone the Gayn­dah Golf Club on 4161 1587.
