Rain closes course
GOLF: Heavy rains resulted in the Proserpine golf course being closed on Friday.
The big wet also caused the cancellation of the March leg of the Airlie Beach Hotel monthly medal, which will be played on Saturday if the weather continues to improve.
The Thursday players got in their weekly competition before the rain, with only a few showers during the day to dampen everything except the players’ spirits.
Competing in a Versus Par comp, the Division 1 winner was Wayne Russell with a +3, while Ron Jamieson made a much belated return to the winner’s circle in Div.2 to take out the title.
Tiina Randmae took out the March McNeill Building monthly medal with a fine score of 75 net, narrowly beating runner-up Lyn Muller (76), with Tina Badenhorst (77), and Caroline Awdry (80) filling the minor placings.
