Latest Competition Winners
Bundy Open Day
Winners August 18th
Our Bargara girls made the short trip into and across town for the Bundaberg Ladies Open Day on Sunday the 19th. Winner of the overall Open Day competition was our very own Kasee Marxsen with a score of 80 (71 Nett). Most people would have been delighted to have won this but apparently, according to our reporter on the ground, Kasee was still moaning about her bogey on the last hole!! We will forgive you that bogey Kasee. In Division 2 Jenice Caflisch picked up runners up spot with a solid Nett 74, well done girls.
Our Guide Dogs for the blind Charity Day winner was Michelle Marsden with an excellent 40 pts, that will stop your handicap drifting into double figures Michelle. Runner Up 3 points adrift was Del Hartfiel. In Division 2 Elaine Archibald pipped Sally Doyle on countback with 36 points.
July Monthly Medal
The Monthly Medal competition for July was held on Thursday the 12th in near perfect conditions, with the greens playing pretty quickly. A large field, but only two divisions, means there were only two Winners this month. Picking up the gold in Division 1 with an incredible 65 was Carolyn Mason – you must have putted well Carolyn, beating runner up Marg Taylor by a Tigeresque 9 shots! In Division 2 the winner, with a Nett 70, was Kay Nicholls pipping runner up Sallie Wake by 1 shot. It is great to see a Leftie among the winners. Well done girls.
GWB Open And Closed Championships
Two contrasting days weather wise – a warm Saturday followed by a cold windy Sunday – greeted the players for the GWB Ladies Open and Closed Event held at Bargara Golf Club. 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.
