AN IM­PRES­SIVE con­tin­gent of women golfers from 11 Wide Bay clubs com­peted in the Isis Women’s Car­ni­val on Sun­day. For the first time since 1993 the Isis team won the team gross event. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Cyn­thia Draper, He­len Ric­cia­rdi, Mar­garet Den­nett and Fiona Dowl­ing who also in the process won the Jar­rett Elec­tri­cal Shield. Bar­gara’s six-person team cap­tured the Mary Sut­ton Salver for the best nett team score. In the in­di­vid­ual events, Kath Scot­ney (Bund­aberg) had an out­stand­ing day high­lighted by a hole-in-one on num­ber 6 hole but also win­ning the A-grade nett with a score of 69, plus win­ning the open pin­shot on 1 and 10 and the ap­proach on 5 and 14.

Ju­niors

IT was another big week­end of ju­nior golf with the fi­nal round of the club cham­pi­onships be­ing played. The clos­est event was the 13 hole comp with Cur­tis Fredrik­sen and Zane Fitzgerald all square on 232 shots each af­ter the three rounds. This meant they went into a sud­den death play­off that lasted two holes with Cur­tis fi­nally pre­vail­ing on the sec­ond play­off hole. Well done to both boys. What an ex­cit­ing way to fin­ish the comp. In the nine hole event Wes­ley Hin­ton fin­ished off a good three weeks with a score of 180. Run­ner Up was Cooper Burns on 194. The girls event went to Amara Burns by a com­fort­able mar­gin. In the six hole event Xavier Free­man was the win­ner from Cooper Re­hbein, both boys played well over the three weeks. On Sun­day sev­eral play­ers trav­elled to Glad­stone to play in the Glad­stone Ju­nior Open. Sev­eral play­ers did well. Will Martell won the B Grade Open Com­pe­ti­tion and in the process qual­i­fied for the Greg Nor­man Mas­ters. In the 9 Hole boys event Cooper Burns played an ex­cit­ing two hole play­off to win the event. This is just re­ward for Cooper he has got his new clubs work­ing well. In the 9 hole girls event Amara Burns took out the Run­ner Up Nett prize. Next week golf gets back to nor­mal with a Chip and Putt Comp with all play start­ing at 7.30am. See you all there.

Isis Vets

WITH many mem­bers trav­el­ling to Mary­bor­ough a smaller field than usual played in the sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion. Joan Wright was the over­all win­ner on 38, win­ning on a count­back from Sue Long who then be­came the B-divi­sion win­ner ahead of Ray Burrows on 37. The A-divi­sion win­ner was Garry Car­lon on 37 points, win­ning on a count­back from Kev Sav­age, his last two holes los­ing him the win. The best nine holes in A-divi­sion was de­cided on a spin with Barry Steinke suc­cess­ful, while Bob Werne won the B-divi­sion best nine. Kev won the men’s ap­proach, his sec­ond in the hole, while Cyn­thia Draper landed her sec­ond shot near­est the hole for the women. Joan Wright led the Chook Run win­ners with 31 from Sue Long and Barry Steinke (32), Rusty Us­mar and Bob Werne (330. Next Tues­day pre­pare for a four ball sta­ble­ford – choose a part­ner for the noon hit-off. A re­minder: Next Thurs­day we host the Wide Bay Vets Four­ball Cham­pi­onships – have you nom­i­nated?

Childers So­cial

A SMALL con­tin­gent of Childers play­ers made the trek to Fraser Lakes to take part in the first round of the two round com­pe­ti­tions against the Fraser Lakes So­cial Golf Club Those that hadn’t made the trip be­fore were a bit sur­prised by the course with wa­ter be­ing a main fea­ture re­sult­ing in most play­ers los­ing a ball or two in the process. The Fraser Lakes Club in the end man­aged to hold us out win­ning by a mar­gin of 9%, 102.33 to 111.33 which I am quite sure we can rec­tify when they come to play at the Isis Golf Course on Septem­ber 14, 2014 and they get up close and per­sonal to our trees and sand traps. The best Gross scores went to Childers District So­cial Golf Club with Col Den­nett on 90 and Paul McCar­ragher on 93 and their best Lloyd Hoskins on 97. In the Childers Club af­ter hand­i­caps were taken off Paul man­aged to beat Col, both on 76, on count­back for first place scor­ing a bot­tle of wine and a cou­ple of Golf balls to make up for the ones that ended up in the wa­ter. Troy Stone came in a close third with 77 and the hand­i­cap­per will have to take a close look at his hand­i­cap. Next week we will be play­ing a be­lated Monthly Mug day over the Front Nine play­ing a Stroke and Putt game tee­ing off at 8am as usual. For those in­ter­ested I will have the bucket hats in var­i­ous sizes to pur­chase. Ap­prox­i­mate cost is $12.50 each.
