When our juniors and families arrived on the first tee box at Maroochy River Golf Club to contest round four of the Sunshine Coast Zone Pennants, they could be excused for thinking they were in for a long, wet and windy day on course. When you looked south to Buderim and North to Mt Coolum and Noosa, where heavy rain had converged on both ends of the coast, but as luck would have it, Maroochy River was….………..


Spared the deluge and went on to make the most of their good fortune.


Given the long dry spell the coast has experienced, one wouldn’t have been overly disappointed if we did get some rain, but at the same time, it was nice to get through unscathed.


Once again, the contestants played in great spirit and some incredible golf, which is always a fantastic sight to see.


The team at Maroochy River, led by Jim Di Pietra (Men’s Captain) Chris and Tyler Quaill and Kimberly Crawley did a brilliant job hosting what was a great day out the day, but most importantly for creating an atmosphere where everyone felt welcome.


Once again, competitors from all clubs (including their caddies, families and committee members) should be applauded for the sportsmanship and friendships they bring to the game, even under great pressure, they create an unbelievable atmosphere.  


Some of the many highlights during the day included: Luke Barnes brilliant eagle on 5 and birdie on 6, Jasmine Lena and Ruby Kavanagh’s drives on 8, Bronson White’s up and down on 8, Mickey Schimak – Orrell’s tee shot and putt for birdie on 8, along with Tom Flaskett’s chip in on 14 the win and match against a true sportsman in Tamatoa Stana, which were just a few of the many highlights that were on display during the day.


A major highlight was the fantastic cake the Quaill family had prepared for everyone at presentation, it really went down a treat. (Many thanks)
