Golf club

SHAI Pearce played some great golf on Sun­day to win the monthly medal with a 57 nett, run­nerup was DJ Vick­ers with a 64 nett.

DJ won the Monthly Putting medal with 23 putts and Shai was run­ner up with 25 putts. Shai also won the daily pin­shot.

Some mem­bers trav­elled to Grace­mere for their men’s open, we trust that they all had a great day of golf.

This Satur­day is the Duaringa Ladies Open and Sun­day is the men’s open, best of luck to all com­pet­ing.

The Frenchville So­cial golfers had a game of golf at Wowan on Sun­day. They con­grat­u­lated the Wowan Golf Club on the pre­sen­ta­tion of the course and they en­joyed their pie and vege lunch.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family at this sad time.
