Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

GOLF: The NQ Men’s Pen­nants were played over the week­end, C-Grade played at Proser­pine, B-Grade staged at Sa­rina and the A-Grade con­tested at Pioneer Val­ley.

The C-Grade saw some suc­cess for the lo­cals on Satur­day, win­ning both matches com­fort­ably against Collinsville and Bowen, but on Sun­day Ayr proved too strong, win­ning five and a half games to Proser­pine’s one and a half, to take out Di­vi­sion two.

Home Hill made it a “Bur­dekin” week­end by tak­ing out the Di­vi­sion three on a count­back, and Black Springs proved too strong over Rowes Bay, Mackay and Lavarack in Di­vi­sion one.

The A-Grade se­cured only one win over the week­end, be­ing de­feated by both Ayr and Home Hill.

Un­for­tu­nately, the B-Graders suf­fered an­other de­feat, not win­ning a match and be­ing rel­e­gated to di­vi­sion three for next year.

Spon­sors for the week­end were BC Con­struc­tions, Bartz Plumb­ing and Ryan Build­ing.
