Lions hit the greens for annual golf day

THE Dalby Lions Club hosted their annual Charity Golf Day at the Dalby Golf Club on Sunday with plenty of players teeing off for a good cause.

Lions Club Charity Gold Day organiser Greg Stimson said the event went off without a hitch.

"It was a very good day, we had a good amount of players, similar to what we usually get,” Mr Stimson said.

"It was very well supported.”

The club doesn't have a final figure on how much was raised just yet, but Mr Stimson said the money would no doubt be donated to a worthy charity.

"We'll have a meeting when we know how much we've raise and work out where it will go,” he said.

"Sometimes we work it out prior to the event but we are yet to decide this year.”

Mr Stimson was grateful for the generous contributions of local businesses, acknowledging the event wouldn't go ahead without their help.

"Thanks to all of the businesses for their support and for their donations, they make days like this one a great success.”

On the fairways, Jeff Hirning won best overall male in the stableford with 44, followed by Dave King with 43.

Mark Ferguson took out the A-grade 18-hole stab with 42 while Michael Farley took out B-grade with 40.

Eleanor Tindall took out the overall ladies with a score of 41, with Katherine Black finishing runner-up.
