Southland 2017 - Queens Park Golf Course - Friday 5th October
A field of sixty three competitors played in this years tournament slightly down on last year but still a turnout we were pleased with.
The weather was on our side with sunshine and little wind throughout the day.
The prize table was excellent with great support provided by all of our sponsors, a special mention to Richard Seaton from Hamer Electrical for the supply of the BBQ lunch.
On our new sponsors on the day were Invercargill Holden and Toyota Dealer GWD Motor Group who provided prizes and displayed motor vehicles on the course.
We included a new Ambrose section this year that was also well supported and look forward to that gaining in popularity next year.
The Southland Team for the Nationals
Craig O'rorke, Paul Knowles, Mark Boniface, Wal Shuttleworth, Craig Weastell, Brian Gibson, Gary Rose, Craig Popham
