WE DID IT AGAIN - for just the 2nd time in the 32yrs of the event.
The Downs and South West team were undefeated during the week of matchplay at City Golf Club.
8-11th September 2014
The competition began on Monday in cool, showery and blustery conditions. The home team adapted to these typical Toowoomba conditions and benefited from local knowledge of the well presented golf course to take an early lead by defeating Far North Qld and halving matches with last year’s winner, Brisbane and District.
Success continued for the following days of competition and despite having a bye on the last day, the team had an unassailable lead and went through undefeated to claim the 2014 Meg Nunn trophy. The Downs and South West Team finished with a total score of 31.5pts followed by Brisbane and District on 26.
The team comprised Margaret Richards (playing captain)and Cate Wilmot both from the City Club; Natalie Hollis and Carmel Macdermott from Middle Ridge Golf Club; Dana Beutel and Sharon Weatherby from Gatton Golf Club with Aliecia Freeman (City) as Manager. The caddies were a huge benefit to the team - no doubt. So thanks to Aliecia Freeman, Gabby Pamenter & Glenda Murray (City), Lyn Case (Crows Nest), Marie Cook (Millmerran) and Ron Weatherby (Gatton). Many other City members volunteered their time to caddy for visiting teams as did St George, Chinchilla, Clifton and Middle Ridge ladies and their help was acknowledged at the closing function.
The 2015 Meg Nunn Salver competition will be held in Far North Qld at Cairns Golf Club.
This Inter-District Match Play Tournament has evolved to include all seven Golfing Districts throughout the state coming together to play for the Meg Nunn Salver. The venue for the event rotates through the seven districts of Far North Qld, North Qld, Central Qld, Sunshine Coast Burnett, Brisbane & District, Gold Coast District and our own Downs & South Western District.
In 2014, the tournament returns to the Downs where it will be held at Toowoomba City Golf Club. The first and only time the Salver was won by our District was at Toowoomba Golf Club in 2007. Obviously, the team would love to hold the Salver high on Thursday 11th September and will be doing their utmost to bring this to fruition.
Dalby Golf Club hosted the recent Downs & South Western District Ladies Golf Championships. One hundred and thirty golfers from 22 clubs in the district arrived in the town to play in the Foursomes event on Monday as a warm up to the following two day stroke event. Cool, overcast and windy conditions greeted the ladies on Monday for the shotgun start. It would be fair to say that one bunker and some testy greens were the main problem encountered by the players on the first day.
On Monday afternoon Golf Qld representative, Matt Field, presented a free Rules Seminar. This was attended by forty golfers and provided some lively debate and clarification regarding the Rules of Golf, which can often be seen as a contentious issue on the golf course. The visual slide presentation helped the ladies understand some of the more vexed issues encountered during a round.
The District Matchplay was held at Goondiwindi in 2014 on 28 & 29th July, after being postponed due to wet weather in April. 25 players competed in the event with 4 Silver, 15 Bronze I and 6 in Bronze II. The Goondiwindi ladies provided lovely morning teas and lunch for all. The course was presented well and the change of date made the greens all the more challenging due to the frosts. Clubs represented from the district were City, Oakey, Pittsworth, Borneo, Clifton, Inglewood, St George and Goondiwindi.
D&SW Junior Jug team just weren't able to hold on for victory on the last day of competition in Sarina. A commendable second place with 17pts behind Brisbane & District 191/2pts were the final day results. The girls all played very well during their week of golf with Lori unbeaten. Final results
Congratulations to the following girls on their selection in the Junior Jug Team to play at Sarina from 30th June - 3rd July.
