A large turn out saw some quality golf with the overall Open and Closed Champion being Kate McFarlane from Bundaberg with a 2 round total, just 2 over par, of 148. A Grade Winner, 4 shots back from Kate, was Isabella Artchua (152) also from Bundaberg. B Grade Champion was our very own Carolyn “One Putt” Mason on 192 winning by 3 shots from Kim Groves. C Grade Stableford winner was Bargara’s Allison Jackson with 80 Stableford points cruising home by 6 from runner up Kay Dodds. In the Nett events Mariam Hemsley took out A Grade with a total of 144 by 1 shot from Raelee Marxsen. B Grade Nett winner was Chris Bloem on (148) winning comfortably by 6 shots from Del Hartfiel (154). Well done to Kate and all the winners.
