GOLF: As Mayor Annie Liston announced that the Queen's Baton Relay was heading to Charleville, golfers warmed up for their first event of 2017, the Summer Cup.

A total of 32 eager competitors took to the course on Sunday in what was set to be an explosive 18-hole competition.

Sam Wade was on form for most of the competition and landed the best shot of the day with a jaw dropping four under par.

Despite Sam Wade's efforts, Dan Jones and Chris Thomas proved stand-outs, taking out the win in a well deserved display of golf.

Sam Wade and Geoff Whitehead had their own well deserved win and topped the scoreboard in gross and nett positions.

In the A and B-grade division breakdown, Gary Wade and Jake Wade took out gross and nett positions respectively, while in B-grade, it was Guy Jansen and golf club president Cliff Jones.

C-grade competition saw Zack Kinivan and Geoff Whitehead put on a stellar game of golf together to grab the division win.

In the senior competition, golfing experience was on show as Ian Nass took out the gross position win, while Bob Young closed out a tough game to grab the nett win.

The ladies competition was all class as Robyn Clayton's accuracy off the green proved decisive with the gross win, while nett went to Glenda Eckle.

Jones said there were a number of stand out performances from the day.

"I'm guessing the golfers will improve greatly throughout the season,” he said.

Prizes at the cup included barbecues, a symbol of summer and the tournament's namesake.

The Summer Cup followed up Saturday's Ray White Rural fun day, a nine-hole event open to the public.

Each year the golf club hosts four fun days including one which fund raises for The McGrath Foundation.

Jones said the major focus of the rural fun day was to help create interest among potential players and to promote youth using the golf club.

"All players are welcome to the fun days,” Cliff said.

"It has cooled down now so that makes a difference.”

On Sunday, March 26 the Golf Club will hold an open day muster for children aged 5-17 to motivate newcomers to the game.

Junior Golf Sunday mornings will follow on from the event starting on April 23. Membership for youngsters is $10 for eight weeks.
