Golfers enjoy a great game at the veterans carnival

GOLF: It was a busy day at the Mundubbera Golf Club on Wednesday morning with more than 62 veterans from across the region.

The golfers competed in an 18-hole-competition with tee-off starting at 9am.

Over the last couple of weeks the course has been transformed with bright green grass surrounding the course, and players were pleased with the improvements.

Former president Graham Carlyon played alongside fellow friend Graham Lohse and said it was one of the best days to be out.

"You couldn't ask for a better day to be out on the golf course,” Carlyon said.

"I haven't had the best game but some would say it could only get better.”

From Hervey Bay, Howards, Maryborough, Isis, Burrum Heads, Bargara, Maroochydore, Biggenden, Monto and Gayndah.

Carlyon said it's been years since he has seen the course in good condition.

"I actually cannot believe how good the course is, we've been praying that the course would improve and here it is,” he said.

"I've never seen the grass come away like it has this time.”

Teams came from across the region to compete.
