Clubs come out for Eidsvold

GOLF: Sunday was a big day for Eidsvold Golf Club, who held their annual Mens and Ladies Carnival.

It was a chance for a number of Wide Bay teams to come out and have a swing on the small town golf course.

Club Captain Matt Murray, who won the nett for A grade said the Eidsvold team represented themselves well.

"They played well, won a few prizes,” Murray said.

"We had clubs from Monto, Mundubbera, Mt Perry, Gin Gin, basically all the area.”

The Eidsvold Club has had some difficulty recruiting new members throughout the year.

Club president Terry Haupt hoped the carnival would show the other towns what they were capable of.

"We're travelling pretty good, the greens were looking real good considering the weather,” Haupt said.

Some players who praised the greens pointed out it affected their putting in some areas.

"If you were putting with the breeze, you only had to touch it and let the ball roll, the wind would keep it going,” Haupt explained.

Aside from the carnival, a few changes lie ahead for the club.

Currently, the only way to access the clubhouse by car is taking a turnoff near the Eidsvold service station, turning left onto a dirt track and following that track down across a wooden bridge, which leads up toward the club.

That bridge will soon be closed, and members will need to take an alternate route coming from the other side.

The next major event will be the Three-Man Ambrose November 5.
