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.

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.

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.
