Bargara fails to capitalise at home
AFTER the first round of the President’s Cup, it appears that Jean Davis from Bundaberg Golf Club need not worry about the trophy rusting.
Bargara failed to take advantage of playing on their home course and now trail Bundaberg by 12 points.
The women squared their matches four games each, but the men were trounced 17-5 with two matches halved.
It is hard to see them overturn this advantage when they visit the city course on November 28.
While Bargara suffered on the scoreboard, it was great to see the clubhouse full after the matches with players from both sides enjoying each other’s company.
Last Thursday the men played a stableford and Joe Nash won on a countback after he and Scott Nicol had 44 points.
The women also played a stableford.
Karen Brock claimed victory in division one with 38 points, and Chris Algie won the second with 45.
On Saturday, the men played a par competition.
The A-grade winner was Chris Robertson with plus 4.
Roger Straton had a good day, winning B1 with plus 9.
Graeme Mogridge won the other B grade with plus 4, and in C grade Ross Sturwohld won with plus 7.
Stacey McDuff won the women’s division one stableford with 41 points and Betty Church the second with 38.
