It’s par for this comp


Queenstown pro golf coach Craig Palmer (right) keeps Jonny Yates (left) and Steve Kay in line at Frankton Golf Course.

Kay and Yates are regulars in Palmer’s new summer twilight social golf comp for handicapped and non-handicapped golfers.

The tournament, which has men, women and junior divisions, tees off every Friday from 2-7pm, followed by prizegiving at a nearby bar.

The weekly winner scores a brown jacket embroidered with “Royal Frankton Twilight Champion” – a play on the green jacket presented at the famous US Masters tournament.

Losers nab a wooden spoon and a free lesson from Palmer – Craig, not Arnold.
