GOLF: The Mun­dub­bera Golf Car­ni­val was held at the week­end, with Gin Gin golfer Scotty War­ren win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion on a gross score of 67.

The com­pe­ti­tion in­volved about 80 golfers brac­ing the early morn­ing start to play an 18-hole com­pe­ti­tion, with play­ers com­ing from all across the Wide Bay to com­pete.

Mun­dub­bera Golf Course pres­i­dent Gra­ham Car­lyon said the com­pe­ti­tion this year was far more com­pet­i­tive and had some sur­pris­ing re­sults.

“It was an ex­tremely suc­cess­ful event – we had more golfers than last year, which was a good thing for the club,” Car­lyon said.

“The scor­ing field was fairly av­er­age and saw com­peti­tors in arm’s lengths try­ing to win the com­pe­ti­tion.”

Car­lyon said while ex­pe­ri­ence lev­els var­ied, it was a com­pet­i­tive day all round.

“(There were some golfers) who played se­ri­ous golf and did ex­tremely well,” he said.

The car­ni­val in­volved a lot of prepa­ra­tion from the com­mit­tee and Car­lyon thanked all the vol­un­teers who helped make the day pos­si­ble.

“It was Kerry Beu­tel’s first ma­jor event as a cap­tain and he came out with fly­ing colours. It can be a lit­tle daunt­ing, es­pe­cially as you get a few last-minute phone calls, but that hap­pens and he han­dled it well.”

The com­ments from the wider pub­lic were pos­i­tive, Car­lyon said.

“Golfers were im­pressed with how far the club has come with re­gards to the course,” he said.

“If golfers could com­plain about some­thing, they would. So for only pos­i­tive com­ments to be said, it means things are look­ing up.”

The win­ner for the men’s A-grade was Scotty War­ren and the ladies’ com­pe­ti­tion went to Jodie Gibbs on 81.

The club thanked Cen­tral Bur­nett Fruit Pro­ces­sors for do­nat­ing the $500 for prizes.
