Last month, Year 8 student Blake Reibel won his first Monthly Medal in the Men’s Saturday Competition in Division 3 at the Tin Can Bay Golf Club, with an impressive 64 nett. Blake is a product of the junior program run at the club on Thursday afternoons.

Children of varying ages have fun learning the basics of the game and get to play several holes with adult supervision. If you have any budding young golfers out there, don’t hesitate to bring them along on a Thursday. Call Janet on 0428 725 857 for further information.

Gordon Smith and Janet Reibel received awards in recognition of their volunteer services for many years to the golfing industry and community within the district, at the Sunshine Coast and Southern Burnett District AGM last month.

They were also awarded a certificate from Golfing Queensland in recognition of dedication and extensive volunteer services provided to Tin Can Bay Golf Club and the Sunshine Coast Golf Zone. Congratulations!
