Bundy reclaims President Cup

THERE will be no fears of the President's Cup rusting away in the sea air after Bundaberg won it again, 35 games to 31.

After a poor start at Bundaberg, the home team fought back well to win the men's and women's sections.

The women reversed the results of two weeks ago and the men didn't do enough to overcome the first-round deficit of 13 games.

Bundaberg president Trevor McLeod holed out an eight iron on the 15th and as Bargara professional Phil Curd had no shot, he didn't even get a hit and the match finished there.

The old “gold chocolates to boiled lollies award” goes to Dick Mason after he and his partner lost six and four.

The day before, he had 12-under-par 48 stableford points in the competition.

However, he went down without a whimper on Sunday.

One of his opponents, Ross Noffke, said it was like stealing corn from a blind chicken.

Last Wednesday a good field of more than 60 played in the Bundy Sheds/Garage World Golf Day.

John Archibald and his staff combined with a number of suppliers to put on a great day.

There were plenty of trophies, as well as plenty of food and refreshments.

Overall winner on the day was Pat Dalton, when he won the draw of the cards after he and Neil Rasmussen scored 40 net.

With the number of trophies and give-aways available, all players managed to win something on the day.

Last Thursday, Joe Nash and Barry Law combined well to win the 4BBB stableford with 50 points from Cary Craig and Robert Locke, one point back.

The women played a 4BBB stroke and the winners were Kathy McDonald and Elaine Archibald with 64 net, from Jenny Turner and Leone Burton on 67.

Saturday was professionals' day and the overall men's winner was Dick Mason with a fine 48 points.

A-grade was won by Ray Austin with 42, while Neale Moller and Graham Ezzy won the other two grades with 43 each.

Carol Christensen won the women's overall trophy with 42 points and Janet McLaughlan and Sylvia Spaar won the two divisions with 41 each.

Thursday, December 2 is the mid-week Christmas break-up for men and women, and play will get under way with a shotgun start at 11am.

The Christmas break-up for the Bargara Chicken Run will be held on Friday, December 10, while the final event for the year will be on December 17.

Christmas Cheer day will be held on Sunday, December 12, with members playing mixed 4BBB stableford with a shotgun start at noon.
