Players prepare for Isis carnival
THE Isis Open Day Carnival will be held this weekend at the course often referred to as the 'Doolbi links'.
The carnival follows in the footsteps of previous ones, beginning with the first Isis Carnival held in 1932, 20 years after its foundation, and was heralded an "unqualified success" in the Isis Recorder.
An even more historic event took place in 1936 when founding fathers J J Butler and Dr J R Robertson donated a trophy to inaugurate a team competition for the Isis Cup.
While it was a separate event at that time, today it forms part of the Open Day Carnival with A Grade players from each Wide Bay eligible to form a team to compete for the cup.
B Grade teams compete for the Isis Mill shield, in a nett competition which has lasted over many years.
While lack of rain has made conditions less than ideal, all golfers can look forward to another great golfing day on the links this weekend.
