Gympie golf

LAST Wednesday the ladies had a fun day playing a combined competition. While playing a single event the groups were given a pink ball which each lady had to take turns in using for a hole, but if the ball was lost they were no longer eligible to play. However, the individual scores were counted in the single competition and coming home first for the day was Kate Sawry with a great 39 points. Next best was Carol Ward 38 points, Cindy Lawson 37, Marge Dakin and Lesley Sutton 35. All won a ball for their efforts. However the main group winners for the day was Cindy Lawson, Kate Sawry, Lyn Cammick and Jean Peters with a combination of 40 points with their pink ball score. Kate Sawry won the pin shot on 12 and Cindy Lawson the 6th. Marge Dakin, won the pro pin again.

There was only a small field on Saturday at a stableford event. Marge Dakin won again with 42 points. Jean Peters was second with 41 points.

The ball rundown went to Maureen Carroll 36 points and Dell Groundwater 33 points. Lorraine O'Brien, back after a long lay-off, had 31 points. Joy Hatton and Kate Sawry both on 30 won a ball with Stella Macklin the last ball with 28 points.

Jean Peters won the pin shot on the 6th hole, while Dell Groundwater was smart enough to take the 12th pin shot as well as the pro pin for the day. Robyn Jackson said she earned her coffee at City Talk Café. Eight ladies travelled to Maryborough to contest the Courser Cup at their open day, and while it was an enjoyable day, the cup unfortunately remained in Maryborough. Until next week, see you on the tee.

Thursday golf

A FIELD of 30 players turned out on Thursday with very good weather being a nice change after a few washouts.

Of the players that took up the challenge, it was Cindy Lawson that emerged the winner on a countback from Dan Crosby, both with 19 points.

The Rundown: Dave Thomas 19, Tony Edwards 18, Andrew Towning, John Ireland, Vince Andrews, Ron Edwards all 17 points.

Nearest to Pin on the 12th was Paul Dixon and the 17th was Ron Edwards.

The Pro Pin went to Coman Reynolds on the 16th.

The Putting Competition was won by Shawn Perren with 13 putts.

The Accuracy Drive on the 4th was won by Dave Thomas.

Glenn Smith had a bad day to claim the Crying Towel with 10 points.

From next week the Thursday Club will play off the white markers in order to give the tees a rest.

Do not forget that the Thursday Club Championship will be played in November.

Members will need to have played six games in order to qualify.

Next Thursday will be a Front Nine Stroke Event. Good golfing.
