XXXX Day draws crowds
GOLF: It eventuated into some very slow golf for the annual XXXX Day on Friday with 108 players squeezing into only nine holes, with the back nine still closed after last weekend’s flooding.
But good humour and politeness resulted in a fun day’s golfing experience for everyone.
With many visitors in the field, the three-person Ambrose event ensured some wild shots and good fun, with the emergence of the eventual winners, Trish McNeill, Rod Wecker and Gavin Milne beating Jason Bartz and Shelli and Rob Stanley on countback, both with 56 net.
In the rundown were Scott Grigg, Ross Richards & Dean Barnard (571⁄ 6), Lance Lloyd, Matt Muller & Finbar O’Flynn (591⁄ 6), Ben Moran, Peter Spiers & Sam Watson (601⁄ 3), Jake Nurse, Kaylem & Paul Douthwaite, and Simon & Troy Dobbins and Michael Kavanagh (61), Kelvin Stephens, Peter Faust & Merv Hinton (61½), Matt Goldman, Benn Ryan & Dean Kercher, and Nick Watson, Gav Noonan & Ben Pollard (622⁄ 3).

It was good to be back on Sunday. Only the front nine was open but Peter McAlpine came in with a very good 47⁄ to 41 be the winner from Jim Evans after a chip-off also with a 41 net. Neil Hansen was third with 48⁄42. Nearest the pins went to Jim Evans on number two and Mick Burrows on nine. Jason Bourke won the snake putting and Mick Burrows the least number of putts. Tom Fleming on a plus one handicap was the bradmans winner. Players will, hopefully, be on the back nine this Sunday, July 3, for the monthly mug comp.
WINNING: Winners of the XXXX Golf Day at the Proserpine Golf Club.
