FOR a Gayndah team the drive down the highway on Sunday paid dividends as they took out the Holden Scramble at Biggenden.

The team of Shaun Allen, Jeremy Zahl, Ryan Slack and Matt Zillman decided to try their luck at their neighbouring town after missing out on top spot at the Gayndah scramble last week.

All they have to do now is to decide whether they participate at either Rockhampton or Sunshine Coast for the next round.

Biggenden committee member Mick Brady said the day attracted 10 groups of four.

"It was a really good day for the club," he said.

Biggenden player Werner Bern was excited when he scored a birdie.

"But it took nine holes," he said.

Former Grand Hotel lessee Paul Dowling was back playing on his home course.

He said playing golf over there was wonderful.

"The course was beautiful and the people were so friendly," he said.

"Australians need to get over there and realise just how lucky we are."
