New Cup on offer

THE end of the Presidents Cup saw the Americans come out on top to nudge out the Internationals in a close fought battle.

Now another juggernaut in golf in the Wide Bay, Coral Cove, will take on the Burnett Heads Lighthouse Hotel team in the first Coral Cove/Lighthouse Cup this Sunday.

The winner will get to display the trophy at their establishment.

Lighthouse Hotel will go in as underdogs with Coral Cove putting together a powerhouse team with a mixture of experienced seasoned campaigners and energetic, skilful and determined younger players.

Anyone can play and you don't need a handicap.

There will be promotions from Wild Turkey, raffles and a barbecue on the day, so if you play golf or would like to, come along.

Burnett Heads golfers are reminded that the courtesy bus will pick them up from the Lighthouse Hotel, so call the Lighthouse Hotel and book your spot.

The Channel Seven Challenge is on this Friday with only two more games to be played to decide the winner.

Current leader Peter Seymour will take a three-shot lead into the last two events.

In golf results, Ryan Norton announced himself as a player to watch as the 16-year-old won the Division 2 single stableford event with plus-seven to beat Eddie Smith on a countback.

Peter Seymour continued his good form, winning Division 1 with plus-eight.

Gene Branson and Mark Hochen teamed up to win the Thursday club event with 48 points in an aggregate stableford.

Last Saturday, Dave Morrell and Barry Cross won their respective divisions, both lighting up the course with 46 stableford points.

Members are reminded that the Coral Cove Golf Club 2011 Awards Night will be held on Friday, December 16.

More information will be emailed to members and guests in the next couple of days.
