Bargara Men Triumph At 2017 Burnett Cup
Bargara’s own Peter Johnson and Dean Pickup took out the 2017 Burnett Cup winning the final on Saturday. The competition was played at Bundaberg Golf Club over several weeks. In the final PJ and Dean got off to a flyer winning the first two holes before halving the third with a birdie and winning the fourth to be three up after 4 holes. The 5,6 and 7th were halved with the Bargara boys missing two putts from under 10 feet for birdies. Dean steadied the ship with a birdie at the 8th to go to 4 up. They lost the 9th despite birding the hole as their opponents birdied with a shot. So at the turn PJ and Dean were a comfortable 3 up. The 10th was halved but PJ and Dean won the 11th hole to go 4 up. From there their opponents started a fightback with Dean and PJ losing 12,13 and 15 with less than convincing golf. Peter won 16 with an amazing up and down, hitting his chip to a foot and killing the hole to make it Dormie 2. Nerves started to kick in as they lost 17 when the opposition birdied it to make it Dormie 1. Going down the last Dean birdied it hitting his approach inside 2 metres and sinking the put to seal a great victory. Congratulations to you both.
Pro / Captain Challenge … May
Pro captain challenge June
Phil and Warren had the pleasure of taking on Des Ryan and David King in June. Under beautiful sunny skies the match was neck and neck most of the day . A few birdies on the back nine from Warren and Phil secured a 2/1 win and made it 2 wins from 6 starts …. protecting the stock of cerise coloured shirts handed out so far… we did enjoy a great day and several laughs along the way and certainly great company .
Pro captain challenge July
July saw us take on the two young guns , Lachlin Ulcoq and Tom Jameson…we had to give away 8 and 6 shots respectively so it was going to be a struggle all day. The front nine was very competitive thanks to 6 over par from Lachie as Tom went walkabout…but Phil and I managed to hold our own and we were all square after nine holes…the back nine proved very similar with no one getting ahead by more than 1 hole….birdies by Phil on 13 and 15 saw us hold a 1 shot lead playing the 16th hole . Both Tom and Lachie had shots on 16th to bring the match back to square .A par and a win on 17th by Phil saw the young guns needing to win the last to take the match further…..and they did. Under fading light we went back up the 1st hole where pars we the order of the day ….so to the 20th hole and pars by both Warren and Phil weren’t enough to stop Lachie as he also had par with a shot…..finally putting us away….I have no idea what Tom did all day apart from drive the cart… Congrats to both of you and once again another fun day…..you will both look good in your cerise shirts…..
Eagles In Competitions
A reminder to all players regarding Eagles. During Competition play if you or your partner have an Eagle mark it clearly, along with the hole number at the top of your card. The Committee cannot plough through all cards checking for Eagles so marking it clearly at the top of your card will ensure you receive the correct prize.
What’s In The Bag ?

The runner up of the inaugural Stableford Shootout has quite an interesting bag with a few stories behind them. Starting at the top of the bag is his Callaway Big Bertha Alpha Driver. It’s one of his favourites and he loves the consistency he can get with it. Definitely one club not leaving the bag anytime soon. The best story behind his clubs would have to be his older ones. Lachy’s hybrid and putter has sentimental value as they were used by his father (Ben Ulcoq) when he was younger. This is something any father would be proud of. Plus seeing the way he putted in the Stableford Shootout one cannot argue. Thanks Lachy for letting us take a looking into your bag.
The mixed Bargara Pennants team won the 2016 Wide Bay Golf Association Title for 2016 with a thrilling 5-4 victory against Hervey Bay played at Bundaberg Golf Club. Going into the final round both Bargara and Hervey Bay had won both their previous matches.

Well done to our ladies who remained unbeaten over the 3-match series.

The Men’s Match Committee have looked at this for some time and have taken information collected from games played between 1st July 2016 and End of February 2017.Initially we looked at all scores for handicaps 0-15 and then also compared them with all handicaps 0-36 and similar results occurred. Here is a list of the new ratings so they can be seen by all members.
The new scorecards with the new stroke index ratings are now available and will be in play for all Men’s competitions from 16th May 2017 onwards. A lot of work has gone into making sure the ratings are fair and accurate so please ensure you mark your new cards correctly using these new indices.
