A change to the usual competition format played last Saturday at Stanthorpe was a 2 person ambrose event sponsored by M & D Auto Parts who have continued their many years of sponsorship at the club. Appreciation is extended to both Judy Spiller and Mick Spiller of M & Auto Parts for the day, and to Judy for presenting the prizes on the day. The club also thanks their associated sponsors on the day, many of whom played in the day’s competition.
Heavy rain in the days prior to the event cast some doubt on the day. Club greenkeeper, Bill Pyne, and those who assisted him did a great job in getting the course into a playable shape for the day to proceed.
