JUNIOR GOLF NQ INC
On the weekend of the 19/20th October Golf North Queensland conducted our annual Junior Pennants events as well as our Presentation of awards for the year. It turned out to be a very successful weekend and was enjoyed by all with 53 Juniors and 14 parents competing in the matches over all. Winners for the weekend were Rowes Bay in Division I and Ayr in Division II & III but golf was the overall winner judging by the smiles on faces and the way everyone had fun. Saturday nights presentation event started off with wonderful spread by on by Tina, the leftovers was appreciated by all at lunchtime Sunday before we made our way home. As you can see by the list below and the happy snaps attached there was a lot of winners from all parts of our District and we hope to have more involved next year. A special mention must be made of our departing Coordinator for GNQ Brett Abdul, for all his work as well as Derek Evans (Rowes Bay) and Richard & Jenny Sambell (Mackay) for their work over the years but of course a special big thank you to Yvonne Burkett (Aunty Yvonne of Collinsville) for over 22 years of service to our Juniors.
