Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Thirty Whitsunday players competed in a stroke competition which was also Round 2 of the Club championships for those who were eligible. It was warm and steamy out there as the course did not get the coastal sea breezes - they’re a hardy lot who know how to stay fresh on the course. Scoring indicated the state of the course with lots of run on the fairways and some very accurate (and some very lucky) putts on the greens.
Championship winners will be revealed at the presentation evening to be held at the Reef Gateway on 9th December.

NAGAs: The honours went to Karen Rix and Wilf Herweg, who received a drink courtesy of Aaron and Tracy Watts. Obviously, you have to be there to enjoy the drink, so Jalen and Elise missed out this time.
