Monthly medal field grows
Five players from five rounds
GOLF: Coming into the halfway point of the year the Gayndah Golf Club’s monthly medal competition already has five separate winners.
Each month’s winner will take part in the end of year play off game.
So far Lindsay Baker, Greg Zahl, James Duncan, Peter Ulcoq and Brian Cuthbertson have already taken out a monthly medal each.
Gayndah Golf Club captain Steve Gallagher said it was great to see good competition in the monthly medal competition.
“And well done to Brian in taking out his first monthly medal and becoming the fifth member of the MMC 2017,” Gallagher said.
Cuthbertson was able to edge out the field of 13 players for the May monthly medal with Rob Kirk only one stroke behind with 64.
Players can enter in any one or all of the monthly medal competitions.
“The monthly medal is set down for June 17 as the weekend of June 24 is the Dunny Seat challenge against Mundubbera,” Gallagher said.
The Gayndah golf calender remains busy with the second round in the Secretary versus Treasurer series which currently has the treasurer’s team leading on one.
“So come out and let’s get the secretary’s team to even things up,” Gallagher said.
The treasurer is to arrange placement for the pins.
Saturday, June 10 will be the day of the Men’s and Ladies Foursome Championships played over 27 holes.
Tee off for the foursomes is scheduled for 11.30am and players are encouraged to arrive at least a half hour prior.
As for the other weekly rounds a new name appeared atop the Tuesday leader board with Carmel Mattson taking out the round to beat out dual runners up Jan Bourke and John Morgan.
Bev Emmerton regained fine form for the Thursday sporter and secured a win, finishing a full five strokes ahead of her nearest competitor.
