Winners gloat despite tight finish

THE festive season has seen a lot of golfers and visitors out and about playing golf and enjoying all the great facilities Coral Cove has to offer.

In what may have been a shock to members by having a truck load of social players, it was good to see people taking advantage of the beautiful weather.

The final round of the Channel Seven Challenge was played last week and it was a tightly contested tussle between Peter Seymour and myself for the end of year trip to Noosa Springs.

Fifty-four players played in the Friday afternoon two-person Ambrose which saw eventual winner for the day, the dynamic duo of Doug Habbermann and myself take the victory by the narrowest of margins winning on a countback.

This also meant that I leap-frogged Peter Seymour in the rankings by two shots to win.

I'm not one to gloat but I don't win very often so I might as well enjoy my day in the sun.

A big thank-you to Channel Seven for their support throughout the year and we look forward to their continued support this year.

This year should be a massive one for Coral Cove with a lot in the pipe-line to bring a bigger and better golfing experience to the Wide Bay region for all players to enjoy.

Some notable scores throughout the week included up-and-coming junior Ryan Norton with 43 points, Jack Van Damme with 42 points and John Kirchner, who is now off zero and consistently shooting under his handicap, with a four under par round last Thursday.

I hope everyone has had a safe and happy holiday and we look forward to seeing everyone in 2012.
