On the afternoon of Friday 26 June, the Australian Golf Heritage Society Queensland Chapter played its mid-year event. A strong field of eleven played a nine hole stableford competition over the front nine at Royal Queensland Golf Club in perfect winter conditions.
The event was solidly won by left-handed maestro Ross Bishop with 18 points off a handicap of 9. Runner-up on a countback (with a birdie on the final hole) was Ralph Heading with 17 stableford points off a handicap of +1. Unlucky to place third was AGHS Secretary Ross Haslam with 17 points off a handicap of 11.
The quality of hickory play in Queensland continues to improve and we look forward to our major event for the year on Friday 24 July—an 18 hole event that runs in conjunction with the Royal Queensland Golf Club Hickory Championship.
