Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Veterans Golf Report

Last Monday and Tuesday 115 men and women competed in the annual 2023 Wintersun Carnival hosted by Proserpine Golf Club.

Thankfully the wet weather held off for the two days although the wind did get up.  

The course was in remarkable condition, all things considered.

Competitors came from Victoria, NSW, and North Queensland and by all accounts had a wonderful time.  

The men's 36 Hole Gross Champion was Greg Ellis from Mackay and the Ladies 36 Hole Gross Champion was our very own Leanne Alexander.

Division A Nett winner was Tony Lincoln from Tewantin/Noosa club, Nett runner up Gary Scotford from Proserpine.  

Ladies Nett winner Tina Badenhorst from Proserpine and runner up Cheryl Scown from Mackay.  

Well done to all who participated.  

Next Monday and Tuesday will be Mackay's turn to host.  Good luck to those competing.
