ISIS LADIES’ CARNIVAL
THE highlight of the golfing week was the annual Isis Ladies’ Carnival which attracted a strong field from across the Wide Bay Burnett Golf district. For the Isis players, Helen Ricciardi (84) was runner-up in the Division 1 gross; Vicki McAulay (88) the winner of the Division 2 gross; Marg Dennett (71) the winner of the Division 1 nett; Kerry Schnack (40 points) the winner of the Division 3 stableford, with Monica Madsen (38 points) runner-up. Kerry also won the pinshot in her Division. The day was a great success from a playing and club point-of-view with the ladies expressing their thanks to those men and women who offered buggies, helped prepare the refreshments, and looked after the members and visitors.
ON Saturday the Friendlies’ Pharmacy sponsored a single stableford competition. Competition was intense with many scores well below par. Norm Plath led the way with 41 points to win from Michael Stanton on 40 points. Rundowns went to Craig Reynolds (39), Brett Martell (38) and Ken Albion (37). Kev Savage won the best nine with 22 points from John Hinton on 21 points. Will Martell (3.6m) won the A Division pinshot on 1 and 10; Mark McAulay (1.17m) the B Division approach; Nigel Radin (6.11m) the A Division pinshot on 4 and 13. This week members play a single stableford for club trophies.

Marg Dennett with nett 70 won the goblet from Coralie Volgyesi on 72, with rundown going to Vicki McAulay (74) and Diane Rowley (77). Joan Wright (30) won the least putts and Val Plath (2.17m) the approach. This Thursday members will determine the competition before hit-off at 8.30am.

Best for the day were Joy Cartner and Lisa Cooney recording 49 points to claim the winning prizes from Michael Stanton and Kev Savage on 46, with Roger and Cynthia Draper third on 45 points. The approaches were won by: Adrian Martin (0.125m) for the men on 1 and 10; Bill Herring (in the hole) for the combined approach on 4 and 13; and Cynthia Draper (0.21m) on 6 and 15 for the ladies, with Lisa Cooney unlucky also to be 0.21m from the hole.

Next week members play the Michael and Malcolm sponsored Monthly V.I.P. single stroke competition. See you there for the noon hit-off.
FINE weather greeted the 17 players who made it to Maryborough on Sunday morning for an away game. The course was in great condition and some of the scores reflected that whilst others are best not talked about. It was good to see the Hervey Bay boys make an appearance and hopefully many more at Isis. Two players scored 42 and on countback Col Dennett took out first place for the loss of 2.4 off his handicap, giving him the lowest handicap in the club. Hoss Eberl was second and loses 2.2 and Ed Connell third with 39 and losing 1.5. The B-grade Longest drive was won by Hoss as was the B-grade Approach on the 7th and Terry Smallman took out the B-grade Approach on the 17th. The members were then served lunch and a round of applause was given to the cook for a great job. Next week we will play a Stroke and Putt over the Front Nine and the week after that, the 23rd Club Car and Ed Connell who reaches the magic 70 years of age will sponsor the day with Club car providing the prizes and Ed will put some money over the bar and his wife will provide the members with several platters of food to round off the day.
