THE of­fi­cial sea­son open­ing round of golf is set to take place on Satur­day and is sched­uled as a two-per­son am­brose event.

Club cap­tain Steve Gal­lagher is ea­ger to of­fi­cially be­gin the year’s game play with prac­tice rounds be­ing played in the weeks lead­ing up to it.

“Ev­ery­one should come along, let’s make this a great 2017 of golf,” Gal­lagher said.

The Gayn­dah Golf Club will also be host­ing a ju­nior and se­nior play­ers coach­ing clin­ics from 8am and 9am re­spec­tively while Sun­day play­ers are be­ing en­cour­aged to at­tend the Biggen­den Men’s Open Day.

On Fe­bru­ary 11, the club will host the first 4BBB Stable­ford Qual­i­fy­ing event for 2017 and Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 19 is the first men’s and ladies open in­clud­ing the Fe­bru­ary monthly medal event.

The vet­er­ans played on Tues­day, warm­ing up for the of­fi­cial rounds.

Club mem­ber and reg­u­lar vets player Lind­say Baker won the first monthly medal of the year.

“It is good to get that one early, would be nice to get the next one too,” Baker said.

“Our of­fi­cial open­ing, which we now call an open day, is com­ing up and it’s look­ing like a good 2017.

“And we have a good turn out of vets play­ing to­day and we just left home where it was 39 de­grees.”

There is also another edi­tion to the club games, Gal­lagher said.

“Once a month we are hav­ing an early Sun­day so­cial game, with a ba­con and egg roll and then a 7am tee off so peo­ple can still en­joy the rest of the day how­ever they like,” Gal­lagher said. PHO­TOS: ADAM MCCLEERY
