No ifs or putts about it

THERE'S just something about the game of golf that brings people together.

Last weekend the Chinchilla Community Commerce and Industry held their greatly anticipated annual President's Cup Golf Day.

The sold out event aims to bring businesses and local entities from right around the region for a friendly round of golf with a bit of networking on the side.

Saturday's balmy weather did little to ward off the 31 three person teams from making their way to the green for a long and leisurely afternoon round of ambrose.

The nine holes took much longer than usual to complete but it's unclear if that was due to all the socialising at play or because it was taking participants so long to locate their golf balls in the rough.

"It was a great day for golfing weather wise,” Ms Robyn Haig from the CCCI said.

"The President's Golf Day helps raise funds for the general running costs of the CCCI and it also enables the Golf Club to benefit from the day,” she said.

"It's a wonderful opportunity for easy networking through a join activity and has a long standing tradition of creating long lasting working relationships.”

Team "Cleanaway” took out the coveted first place on the day with "Fat and Shiny” and "Stayover” coming in at second and third respectively while MPC's team "Lord of the Pins” took home the wooden spoons.

Gavin Waiters was one of the best golfers of the day, taking out the closest to pin prize and the shoot out event with some impressive golfing finesse.

The next CCCI event to look forward to is the One Long Table evening, a celebration of Chinchilla's diversity through a variety of food from around the world.

This year's long table event will be happening on Saturday, September 14.
