GOLF: A hearty turn-out of 48 golfers showcased their skills on Gympie's Gunabul Par-3 golf course at the weekend in the club's first two-person ambrose competition.

An impressive even par round of 54 was enough for the home pairing of John McKenzie and John Gate to take out the event from Shannon Pettit, Nev Joy and Bill Christiansen.

The ambrose format, which allows players to compete in pairs for an accumulative score, was well received, with Gunabul officials intimating the event will be a mainstay on the Gympie sporting calendar.

Gunabul's Bill Nolan said even though it was the first time the club had held the event, he was impressed by the number of players who embraced the new format of play.

Doubling as a come-and-try day, Nolan said the majority of the field was social golfers, unaffiliated with any club - a sign of the growing popularity of the sport in the region.

"We were very pleased. It was a great day overall,” he said.

"The course was in exceptional order and looked magnificent.”
