BOB Blair, Dell Bunt, Julie Blair and Grant Vickery (pictured above) celebrated the start of this year's golfing season by hitting the Rockhampton Golf Club fairways in the Verna Black Memorial mixed four-ball best-ball stableford and a single stableford for the overflow.

Ladies captain Val Kelly said there would be a free ladies' beginners coaching clinic on March 6 with club professional coach Ian Collins over a six-week period.

There will also be a four-week men's and ladies' free beginners clinic from March 3.
