New shoes for James after competition win

The winner was James Devery with nett 32.
He received a pair of golf shoes, compliments of Albert.

Whitsunday golfers and their partners closed out the competition year with the annual presentation and Christmas party last Saturday evening, with the wet weather certainly not deterring the determined party goers.
