Course record smashed

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE women’s course record was smashed at the Moss­man Golf Club dur­ing the Quick­sil­ver Open last week­end.

Club cap­tain John Car­ney said the record was not the only high­light of the event with a field of over 172 play­ers, prov­ing to be the big­gest turnout in a decade.

“The Quick­sil­ver Open was a great week­end of golf, with ev­ery­one hav­ing fun and noth­ing con­tro­ver­sial to ruin the week­end,’’ he said.

“Lo­cal ris­ing star Gen­nai Good­win had a fan­tas­tic week­end, be­com­ing the women’s A-Grade cham­pion and smash­ing the course record by three shots with a fan­tas­tic round of 68.”

Ma­reeba’s Michael Ben­jak beat a strong lo­cal field in­clud­ing Cham­pion of Cham­pi­ons win­ner Peter Chris­field to take out top hon­ours in the men’s A-Grade while B-grade cham­pion went to Bruce Gil­more and Phil Thomp­son was crowned C-grade cham­pion.

Choo Lim took the ti­tle of B-Grade women’s cham­pion.

As the event’s ma­jor spon­sor, Quick­sil­ver do­nated over $4000 in prizes in­clud­ing trips to the outer reef, Green Is­land and the Low Isles.

Up­com­ing events at the Moss­man Golf Club in­clude the four-ball ambrose Holden scram­ble this Satur­day and the CUB Clas­sic held on Au­gust 25-26.
