This month the Men’s Pennant Team have had a great start to their season with a win over the reigning premiers Mt Coolum.

Our team of seven drag themselves out of bed very early every Sunday to travel down to the Sunshine Coast to play. Our ladies will be doing the same thing in a few weeks time as well.

Both the men and ladies have begun to qualify for the 4BBB Matchplay Club Championships and the ladies are commencing their 4BBB Stroke 36 Hole Championships.

The Vets have been on yet another adventure to Caloundra, the new Maroochy River course and played host to Cooroy. The ladies had a great result at Noosa Golf Club to come second in the Nett Pennant.

Congratulations to the winners:

VETS: Brian Weise, Bob Gray, Bob Southern, Peter Cox, Brian Greig, Danny Kay, Mick Low, Rusty Frazer and Mark Lumby

LADIES: Sandra Reibel, Carol Avotins, Ngaire Wallis, Di Neill, Lyn Glenholmes, Helen Gordon and Viv Brown in the 4B vs Par, Marilyn Richards and Pat Sheppard in the 4BBB Agg, Lyn Harris.

MENS: Gary Parker, Mike Clifford, Mark Lumby, Cec Boughton, Steve McSweeney, M. Dunlop, Cec Boughton and Ray Harris.

Monthly medal winners

  • Men’s – Gordon Smith, Barry Hudson and Ron Bygrave.
  • Veteran’s – David Frost, Ken Cox and Jim Smith.
  • Ladies – Jill McDonald and Chris Raeburn.

Best score this month was Men’s 4Ball winners, Bud Morgan and Brian Burton, with a great 59 nett.

A great achievement this month was a hole-in-one on the 13th to Marilyn Richards, one of our more mature ladies, and very well deserved – we are all very jealous.
