Course rattles golfing visitors
THERE is one statement that few would argue: Golf can be a cruel game.
The Women's Golf Central Queensland team travelled to Brisbane for the 27th playing of the Meg Nunn Trophy optimistic it could do well, but members were forced to settle for a sixth placing as the Coboolture course took its toll on even the most experienced golfers.
While a sixth placing might not have been as high as the Central Queensland team had hoped, it was even worse for defending champion Far North Queensland as it was relegated to the wooden spoon.
“The competition this year was intense,” was the assessment of CQ number one Julie-Ann Carson.
“Although there were players returning from previous years, most teams introduced a more youthful side which proved to be the key to dominating the game overall.
“You knew you had to play awesome golf when your opponent was nailing a birdie or eagle to win the hole.”
Six players, team manager and non-playing captain travelled to Brisbane to contest the Inter-District Matchplay Series, won by Brisbane and District team.
Next year, the Meg Nunn will be contested at the Indooroopilly Golf Course.
Rather than a lay day in the middle of the week, games will be played straight through with 36 holes on the first three days and the final 18 on the last day.
