GOLF: Max Whaley will have his name enshrined on the wall of the Kingaroy Golf Club house after he won the Kingaroy Cup on Sunday, June 18.

Whaley scored 65 net.

He was followed in second by Greg Nord with a net score of 67.

Club captain Steven Oliphant said it was a good game of golf all round.

"Max had a good day,” he said.

The Kingaroy Cup has been running since 1949 and every winner has their name plastered on the board of future generations to appreciate.

"It's a stand alone event and their name will go up on the Honour Board for years to come, it's pretty hard to get your name up there,” Oliphant said.

This coming Saturday the club will host a memorial day for Keith and Anne Shaw.

"They were members for a long time,” Oliphant said.

On the Sunday they'll run the first games of the South Burnett Pennant.

A-grade will be held in Kingaroy while B-grade is in Blackbutt and C-grade in Wondai.

The second round will be held on July 9 with A-grade playing Kumbia, B-grade in Goomeri and C-grade in Nanango.
