• Sunny Springsure Pulls Large Field

  • Eighty-six competitors enjoyed the Springsure sunshine today to play the clubs annual open golf day.

    A big field makes a big day out, but spirits were high as players travelled from as far as Gladstone and Alpha to join all the represented clubs in Central Highlands for a memorable outing set beside the lovely landscape of the Virgin Rock.

    Usually played as a separate men’s and ladies event, this year the club combined opens for a very successful turnout and tournament.

    Congratulations to Darcy Hagan and Sonia Bray who took home the accolade of winning the best gross and also to the Springsure Committee and Volunteers for their tireless efforts over the weekend.

    A special mention to the sponsors of the day, Diana Newman (pictured left) and the Central Highlands Regional Council (represented by Gail Nixon pictured right), for their lovely array of trophies.
