Gunnedah’s inaugural business house golf day challenge has been rated a big success.

Hosted by the Gunnedah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the event fielded almost two dozen players from across the local business community.

New chamber president Ben Hennessy said the event was well-received by all participants and the 12 business houses involved.

Although ‘much room for improvement in the standard of golf on display is needed’ the president said the day offered a great opportunity for a social catch-up.

“It was a good way to network outside the usual setting,” he said.

“We’re starting to get some momentum going now with all aspects of the chamber.” 

The Damien Baldwin-led team claimed overall champion honours. Baldwin, of CompuWorks, also took out the nearest-the-pin title. The straightest drive on the 9th hole was won by Josh Cameron (men’s winner) and Kylie Patterson (women’s winner). The mystery prize was won by John Sturgess of Gunnedah Newsagency and David Carter of Carter’s Pharmacy.

The business chamber acknowledged the generous support of local business for prize donations. 

Special thanks also went to Michael Broekman of Namoi Valley Bricks for manning the event barbecue.

Readers are invited to stay tuned for more events planned by the chamber.
