Barlyne draws the numbers
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.
