Cooly clinches title in tough fight
THE final of Gold Coast District Golf Association Senior and Super Senior Pennants was played at the Colonial Golf Club on Monday.
The only local team through to the finals, Coolangatta Tweed Heads Senior team, has dominated this competition from day one.
But finals being finals it turned out to be an exciting finish.
Playing Arundal Hills Country Club both teams finished on 3.
Under the district rules the team finishing on top of the home-and-away competition has to be beaten, so a drawn match clinched the pennant for Coolangatta Tweed Heads.
They are deserving winners of the Division 1 pennant, so well done to all players involved in the team this year.
SUNDAY saw the best of the Gold Coast players up against the best players from south-east Queensland and the Northern Rivers district.
The annual challenge has all-age and open categories covered with five players a team competing in junior, colt, senior and open sections.
The junior section was won by the Northern Rivers team, with both Mitch Dinsey and Jacob Tonkin playing well below their handicaps to be major contributors in the win.
In the colts, Gold Coast District was too strong with its aggregate team score a fantastic one under par in a great effort.
The seniors from the Gold Coast also won, with team captain Tracy Dunn paying credit to all the non-playing but important administrators for their fine work.
Phil Towle shone with a one-under 71 for the seniors to record the best score in the category.
A strong Gold Coast open team - boasting a number of state representatives - completed a hat trick of wins for the district, with captain Tony Wolsley thanking all members of his team for the victory.
