Girls and guys pipped at post in scramble
JUST four shots separated the Bundaberg women from a win at the Pelican Waters Holden Scramble state and regional finals at the weekend.
The men played at Rydges Capricorn and also fell short of progressing to the interstate finals.
At home the scores were indicative of the dry running conditions, with 42 points winning and generous sponsor Peter Dickinson of Kwik-Lift giving extra trophies.
Geoff Loveday scored better on the last nine holes to defeat Anthony Pashley in the men's first division.
In the ladies' event Gay Christie was too good.
Graham Tesch is always on the hunt for trophies and he succeeded in winning the encouragement award from Dickinson.
The second-division trophy went to Batsi Matitiri from Peter Lee, both on 40 points, and Maureen Newman and Joy Faithfull had one better than par with 38 points in ladies' second division.
A few more players are needed to represent the club at the Cock of the Walk at Maryborough on Sunday.
Bus transport is arranged, so interested people are urged to give names to captain Geoff Loveday.
Meanwhile the Melbourne Cup Day function has been abandoned through lack of interest.
The coring of the greens will be done tomorrow so there is a disruption to the midweek program and ladies will play one to nine twice, weather permitting.
Boyd Foster presented a Bundaberg Legacy plaque of appreciation to the club, now hanging near the coffee machine.
DGZ sponsors a three-day event and it's a three-person ambrose medley that starts on Sunday, November 8.
It will be played during six weeks interspersed by the 4BBB presidents cup against Bargara.
