Rain does not stop Mundubbera golf
DESPITE heavy rainfall and high winds on the course, Mundubbera’s most passionate golfers met on both Saturday and Sunday for a different kind of game.
Mundubbera Golf Club captain Peter Hunsley said it was a 36-hole foursome championship, but played over two days.
“Foursomes is only a two baller so you go shot for shot,” he said.
“So player one hits and then player two hits until you hole out and then you swap to the next tee.
“It’s not normal run of the mill golf.”
Hunsley said it was good for the club to do something different.
“It’s always been a championship in Mundubbera, at least for a long time,” he said.
“We’re a bit light on players this year, but it’s all we’ve got.
“We got two more technically on the second day, a couple that just turned up.”
Hunsley said he believed there were not a lot of players as most people preferred “social” golf.
“I don’t think its the weather, more so the lack of players,” he said.
“Especially in the championship event, most people still like the social golf, not that the championships aren’t social.”
Hunsley said despite the heavy rainfall, everyone had a good day.
“It’s always a good day,” he said.
“Everyone is having fun, that’s the main thing.”
