Season finished for golfers

THE year is coming to an end, with golfers competing in the three club, nine-hole competition in Mundubbera.

The competition proved quite challenging with players only using three clubs, from the driver, putter, pitcher or one of the irons. Some of the golfers chose not to use the putter, and instead had to chip the shot while on the green.

For president Graham Carlyon, playing with three clubs led him to win the Bradman's challenge, a title given to someone who scores the highest.

"It's more surprising how good your scores can be only playing with three clubs,” Carlyon said.

"You learn to think better as you only have a few clubs to choose from.”

The game followed with an end of year presentation and a high tea organised by the Mundubbera Golf Club.

"We recognised those players who did well throughout the year and they were awarded with a selection of prizes,” Carlyon said.

"We've been impressed with the golfing participation this year, it's been a good year and we're definitely looking forward to Christmas.”

With Christmas just around the corner, golfers will start competitions on Sunday afternoon at 3pm.

"We'll just be playing nine holes from now on until opening day next year,” Carlyon said.
