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.

Gayn­dah Golf Club is al­ways wel­come to new play­ers and en­cour­ages the wider com­mu­nity to get in­volved. The two week day and week­end rounds cater to play­ers of all ages and all skill lev­els.
