Stanthorpe golfers played a stableford event last Saturday, the day sponsored by club member, Ian Pickering, and we thank him for the prizes on the day. A good field turned out for the day and included visitors from Bribie Island, McLeod and Riversdale Golf Clubs.
In the men’s event, three players came in with the best score of 37 points and the countback again was needed to find the winner which went to Brad Silver from Bribie Island. Mark McCosker ended with the runner up prize and Ivan Juriss settled for an award in the run down.
Thankfully for the ladies, the course is starting to dry out affording some run now on the fairways and the scores are starting to show this.
