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.”

If you are in­ter­ested in be­ing a part of Gayn­dah golf, you can phone the club on 4161 1587.

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