New season starts with good numbers

A BIG opening day competition has the Gayndah Golf Club off to a great start in the new year.

Twenty-six competitors competed in the competition at the weekend, which Shaun Allen and Nicole Chapman won with a score of 54 and a half.

The team of Peter Ulcoq and Steve Jameson were runners-up with a score of 55 and Jeremy and Greg Zahl were the second runners-up with a nett score of 59.

Gayndah Golf Club secretary Diana Baker was pleased to see numbers up so high early in the year.

"It was great to see a good roll up enjoying our opening day in spite of pretty warm conditions,” Baker said.

"Congratulations to Cynthia George who birdied number five in fine fashion.

"Good luck to the Gayndah teams competing in the Burnett Cup.”

The Gayndah Men's and Ladies Carnival is also scheduled for Sunday, February 25, from 7am and 12pm tee off times at the Gayndah Golf Club.

Entry into the event is $30 per player.

The entry price includes lunch to help keep players energised.

The men are divided into A, B and C with zero to 12 for A-grade, 13-21 for B-grade and 22-36 for C-grade.

Ladies will be divided into two divisions, zero to 22 for division one and 23 to 45 for division two.

Club president Mick Coulson said nominations could be submitted to the club or by contacting him on 0418728478.

"GWB meeting delegates please book in advance if you intend to stay for lunch, if you're not a nominated player already,” Coulson said.

The event will be sponsored by the Gayndah Golf Club.

New members are always encouraged to join the club as well as any social players who would like to have a look at what the course and club has to offer.
