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.”
