Magic conditions and a picture-perfect course greeted more than 200 golfers who recently took part in the annual Ocean Shores Cup.
Competitors came from as far afield as Armidale for the event.
The Saturday competition was a 4-Ball Best Ball stableford, with Andrew ‘Ducky’ Smith and Anthony Martin leading the way with a great score of 49 points.
The Sunday event was a 4-Ball Aggregate stableford format, meaning each player’s scores counted towards the combined total.
With daily and overall prizes valued at more than $4,000 up for grabs, understandably there were some nervous moments and some shaky hands holding putters all over the course.
The overall winners, Lew Trudgeon and Igor Blumenthal, managed to put their nerves aside and post a great score of 43 points on Saturday and then came home strong with a great score of 76 on the Sunday. They took home the Ocean Shores Cup and a two-night trip and two rounds of golf at Noosa Springs Resort, who were one of the major sponsors.
Richard and Chris Killion were a close second and collected a brand-new Cobra golf bag each.
Andrew Smith and Anthony Martin were the winners of the Saturday event, with Val Marsh and Larissa Franks taking out the Sunday event.
A fantastic weekend of golf was had by all and it promises to be an even better event next year. S
pecial thanks go to Elders Real Estate from New Brighton who were the other major sponsor of the event.
