Poor start to pennant title defence

DEFENDING champion Coolangatta Tweed Heads got off to a poor start in the division one Gold Coast District Golf Association pennant, going down 4 to 3 against an under-manned Surfers Paradise side.

With the series only over five rounds, every match is critical.

In other games, a rejuvenated Colonial, playing at home, trounced Southport 6 to 1, and in my view is the team to beat in the quest for the pennant.

Last year's runner up, Arundel Hills, in a tight game, defeated Gold Coast Burleigh 4 to 3.

Next game for Coolangatta Tweed is a replay of last year's pennant final against Arundel Hills and this is a must-win game for the club.

Colonial take on home team Gold Coast Burleigh and Southport plays Surfers Paradise.

  • JUNIOR interclub pennant continues with leading team Coolangatta Tweed fighting out a draw against Helensvale on Sunday.

It was tight all day and the overall match was decided by a lip-out putt on the last hole in a thriller.

Coolangatta Tweed is still the clear leader, but the draw on Sunday has opened the door for second- placed Southport to make up ground.

Two rounds to go and the final round at Tamborine Mountain will see Coolangatta Tweed play Southport in a match that could very well decide the pennant.
