GOLF: The Gayndah Golf Club once again played host to its an­nual Bar­lyne Day, at­tract­ing 66 play­ers from across the North Bur­nett.

The com­pe­ti­tion was ul­ti­mately won by Steve Jameson, Peter Ul­coq and Brent Cham­bers.

Jameson’s team fin­ished the day on 55 points to win the Bar­lyne Day tro­phy.

Brad Schif­fke, Shane Ost­wald and Steve Trott came in second place with 55 points, edg­ing out Shaun Allen, Ni­cole Chap­man and Jack George.

Gayndah Golf Club cap­tain Steve Gal­lagher said he was thrilled with the turnout and sports­man­ship shown by all the play­ers.

“Sel­dom do we at­tend a large func­tion where ev­ery­one en­joys them­selves, well done to ev­ery­one who played golf at Bar­lyne Day on Satur­day, an­other great day out,” Gal­lagher said.

Rain had threat­ened the an­nual event, how­ever con­di­tions were deemed playable for the week­end.

“And many thanks to Jim Ed­wards and his team of helpers on Satur­day who all did a fan­tas­tic job mak­ing sure that ev­ery­thing went well,” Gal­lagher said.

“I would also like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank Rob Kirk and Scott Clib­born for their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Bar­lyne Day event,” Gal­lagher said.

“They have both come on board as spon­sors and the ef­forts that they went to in en­sur­ing that there were prizes for many pin shots helped make this event a great day and one that will re­main on the cal­en­dar for years to come.”

Gal­lagher also had praise for the day’s win­ners.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions go to Steve, Brent and Peter for win­ning the day,” Gal­lagher said.

“It must also go with­out men­tion that the group of Brad, Shane and Steve, who mind you ran a close second, were per­haps the most colour­ful team I have seen on the course for a while.”

The fi­nal award of the day was a close one in which Peter Ul­coq just edged out Di Baker.

Gal­lagher had spe­cial men­tion for the green­keeper.

“The ef­forts Jim My­ers en­sured that the course was pre­sented well un­der the cir­cum­stances,” Gal­lagher said.

The next big event is the Bill-a-Brong Brassie, a sin­gle stable­ford event played over two days, Satur­day, April 8 and Sun­day, April 9.

First prize is a night’s ac­com­mo­da­tion for two at the Tower Mill Mo­tel plus two tick­ets to the Bron­cos ver­sus Pan­thers game.
