Hawley hits the jackpot with scholarship

GREAT news this week, with Club Banora member Mark Hawley made the recipient of the 2009 Adam Scott Foundation Scholarship.

Club Banora members who know Mark will not be surprised by his win, as the likeable club ex-junior is only too happy to assist in any way around the club.

Over the past three years he has worked with Barry Horton in the pro shop.

He has been active in junior development, having played and then managed the Club Banora junior pennant team in the Gold Coast District pennants.

The scholarship is worth some $60,000 in education fees, so we wish Mark all the best in his endeavours - a well deserved win!

  • GOLD Coast District Golf Association junior pennants had an exciting final round at Gold Coast Burleigh Golf Club on Sunday.

Coolangatta Tweed Heads could not make the final but finished the year fourth with a strong win over Emerald Lakes.

The finalists this year are the Gold Coast Burleigh and Southport clubs.

In an exciting finale, Southport had to wait until the final putt of the season to see if they would make it through.

The pennant will be decided next Sunday at Robina Woods Golf Club in what should be a great match.

In interclub, Tally Valley continued to push its opposition with no joy. They were beaten 4-2 for the fifth match in a row.

With three round to go, fingers are crossed they can reverse the result.

Coolangatta Tweed Heads continues undefeated, leading the ladder in junior interclub and is a full game clear of its nearest rival.

  • THE hotly contested Miller/Kingston 4BBB handicap knockout contest starts next Saturday at Coolangatta Tweed Heads.

This is a great tournament that will continue for winning players over the next month and a half.

My partner again this year is in-form captain Darren Tonkin and he will need to play well with me as his teammate struggling.
