Three pairs also collected rundowns.

SUNDAY saw 27 players take the field for an 18 hole event Sponsored by Club Car with teams hitting off in a shotgun start.
The weather turned decidedly very windy and made for some interesting shots as it took control of the ball on more than one occasion.
The winners for the day on countback were Ed Connell and Paul McCarragher on 64.25 points winning on a countback from Marg and Col Dennett also on 64.25 points for second place. Third place went to two of our visitors for the day Dot and John Moore with 65.75 points.
Col had quite a day as he also took out the 1st/10th A-grade Nearest the Pin, The Combined 6th Nearest the Pin and the 7th/16th Combined Approach.
Other winners for the day were Ray Burrows with the B-grade Approach on the 1st/10th, Paul McCarragher the A-grade Longest Drive, Bill Long the B-grade Longest Drive, Ken Albion the 4th/13th Combined nearest the pin and also a new measurement to beat for the Golden Circle of 2.7m.

The barbecue after that game was most welcome and thanks to Mick and Roz for providing the cooking and cutting up of the goodies for that, thanks to Bill Long as representative for Club Car for the prizes handed out and for his generous offer of the sponsorship of our Christmas game at Hervey Bay Golf Club.
We have also been offered the use of a 21 seat bus for a nominal fee for that very same Christmas do so those wishing to take advantage please make it know to myself at the next game.
The more we get the cheaper it will be per person.
There is a list with the Treasurer, Bill Kirchhof, for those wishing to attend and also those wishing to use the bus.
Next week was supposed to be Captains Day but it will be postponed for a couple of weeks and next week we will play a Stroke and Putt game over the Front Nine teeing off at 7.30am.
