Central and North Burnett Times - - READ -

GOLF: Monto Golf Club’s Sun­day open event was at­tended by some ma­jor play­ers.

Clubs came up from North Bur­nett, Gin Gin, Bund­aberg and fur­ther to com­pete.

Wide Bay cham­pion Scotty Warren won the men’s A-grade with 66 gross.

“It was up and down, course was in great con­di­tion, good com­pany,” Warren said.

Ev­ery Wide Bay golf club holds an open. Monto’s event hap­pened to fol­low last week’s big game at Bar­gara.

While Warren has been play­ing at Monto for 10 years, ladies win­ner and Wide Bay cham­pion Kathy Nel­son had her first game on the course.

Nel­son won the gross with 80, fol­lowed closely by last year’s cham­pion, Monto’s Leesa Ison with 81.

“Our greens at Bar­gara are smoother and harder, so there’s more speed on the greens,” Nel­son said.

Sun­day’s event will be a sta­ble­ford for tro­phies pro­vided by Keith Murr and Wal Wilkes.
