IN­SIDE knowl­edge was a plus at Mon­day’s vet­eran’s golf car­ni­val at Biggen­den with Peter Len­tini and Ian Roux­ell win­ning both di­vi­sions.

Forty-nine play­ers from the Cen­tral Bur­nett, Bur­rum, Isis, Bar­gara, Coral Cove, Mary­bor­ough and Bund­aberg hit off un­der sunny skies.

Last Thurs­day and Fri­day’s down­pour livened the whole course up.

Com­ments heard around the course in­cluded “it’s a good day for a walk”, “should have stayed in bed” and “at least we are alive and able to en­joy a game of golf”.

Biggen­den Vet­eran’s Club pres­i­dent Dave Maxwell said days like this were very ben­e­fi­cial for small coun­try clubs.

“We ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port other clubs gave us on the day,” he said.
