Golf club is in good shape
Big games ahead for Gayndah
GOLF: The Gayndah Golf Club held a flag event at the weekend in the lead up to the club championships which are set to take place later this month.
Par for the course in a flag event is 68 while a player’s handicap sits at 12, Gayndah Golf Club captain Steve Gallagher said.
“This is done by playing your two shots from the first tee to see how far in distance your two shots go,” Gallagher said.
“You then have 80 shots to play your round of golf.”
Matt Schiffke took out the Saturday flag event with 5539 metres carried with Lindsay Baker coming in second place.
Club players are set to play some significant matches in the coming months.
“The club championships are on this month,” Gallagher said.
“They start from Saturday, July 22, and then the club mixed foursomes championship is on early next month.”
Other events with a more social theme are also set to take place.
“Some of the novelty events we have coming up are the Cross Country Team Challenge and the Irish four ball,” Gallagher said.
New players are always encouraged to check out the golf club.
“As a member of the club you are automatically invited to compete in all club events especially the championships,” Gallagher said.
“Our membership numbers have been excellent throughout 2017, although we sometimes take a small drop off during the picking season but in general the golf club is going well.”

Games are held every weekend, veterans’ games on Tuesdays and sporters’ games on Thursdays.
