GOLF: The Mundubbera Golf Club has named long-time player Kerry Beu­tel as the new team cap­tain.

Beu­tel re­places for­mer cap­tain Peter Hun­sley, who will re­main on the com­mit­tee.

Beu­tel said he was proud to take over the role.

“It’s go­ing to be a bit different,” he said.

“I’ve got a lot to learn from ex-cap­tain Peter Hun­sley.

“It’s go­ing to be good, I’m look­ing for­ward to it as I can learn some new stuff.

“It was time to give Pete a break and we’ll see where it goes from here.”

Beu­tel’s name reg­u­larly fea­tures high up in the Mundubbera Golf Club scores.

“I haven’t been win­ning them all,” he said.

“But it’s been good to play a bit of con­sis­tent golf, it al­ways helps.

“It’s been hot over the sum­mer, so some­times you’re get­ting a few good patches where you get some good holes and some con­sis­tent golf.”

Beu­tel said he had been en­joy­ing the sum­mer games in Mundubbera.

“We are only play­ing nine holes at the mo­ment, not 18, so it’s a nine-hole sporters com­pe­ti­tion,” he said.

“It’s pretty much just a nine-hole sta­ble­ford, you play off half your hand­i­cap for the day be­cause of the nine holes and that’s how it works to­day.

“It’s just re­ally so­cial golf, you don’t re­ally win any­thing and there aren’t any spon­sors. It’s good though cause you still go and play golf.”

He said his favourite as­pect of the game was chal­leng­ing him­self.

“I just like the game and the chal­lenge,” he said.

“It’s al­ways a chal­lenge to try your best and to beat your­self I sup­pose.

“You are your big­gest chal­lenge in golf.”

He said he was look­ing for­ward to the club open­ing again like usual.

“Jan­uary 29 is our open­ing day, we go back to 18 holes again,” he said.

Re­sults:

Alan Pot­ter won the Mundubbera Golf Club’s 9-hole sta­ble­ford on Sun­day, Jan­uary 8, with 20 points.

Ball win­ners for the day were Peter Hun­sley with 18 points and Jenny Lohse with 18 points.
