Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Whitsunday Social Golf

A beautiful day out on Sunday, with some suffering from Coronation sleep deprivation, the scores tell the full story. Whitsunday golfers fielded 18 players on a course in much improved condition that is finally drying out after seven nights without rain. Some players didn’t do the course justice, but it’s about all the fun on the day. Numbers are still down with some players overseas enjoying the UK spring weather, the rest of us revelling in the first cool days of the Whitsundays “winter”.

The Guzzler’s Cup was won by Ladies A winner, so Tiina has a month of drinks, courtesy of the lady players.

Next week is a Stableford game, log in early - with social player numbers increasing and match plays in progress, let’s try to stay together as a group. So, fill in at least the 7 - 7.30am slots first and then move into the 7.30+ if required.

See you out there.
