Despite the horrendous weather conditions that Mother Nature threw our way whilst preparing for round 5 of our Zone Junior Pennants Season, weather that included, some 175mm of rain that fell in two and a half hours over the Sunshine Coast (particularly Caloundra) and one has to congratulate the great team at Caloundra Golf Club for putting in a major effort to make sure……….


Their course and facilities were in excellent condition to host our juniors as they set out to contest the fifth round of their Pennants Season, where Maroochy River 1, held off their number two team by one point, which is jointly held by the strong Noosa Springs team.

Given the long dry spell the coast has experienced, one can’t be too disappointed with the rain we’ve experienced, but it would be nice to think that Central Queensland got their share, heaven knows, they need it.

Once again, the contestants played in great spirit with some incredible golf on display, which is always a fantastic sight to see and a pleasure to be associated with.

The team at Caloundra, led by Russell Michael (Men’s Captain) and Liam and Mike Dawson, who did a brilliant job hosting what was a great day out, but most importantly for creating an atmosphere where everyone felt welcome.

Some of the many highlights during the day included: Tom Flaskett and Rebecca O’Neill’s tee shots into 6, as well as Mickey Schimack- Orrell and Rhett Rosenius tee shots at the same hole, Bronson White’s approach to 6, along with Lewis Shaughnessy’s 30ft putt to win the hole on 6, Tyler Quaill’s birdie chip into 6 that lipped out, and Sunday Moore’s twenty metre chip into 9 to win the hole with a birdie, and Ionna Muir’s brilliant tee shot to within three metres on 9, which were just a few of the many highlights that were on display during the day.

A major highlight was witnessing the youngest contestant in the field, young Coco Moore (Noosa Springs) who put in a gallant effort whilst going down to Lewis Shaughnessy (Maroochy River 2) 5/4 which was a magnificent effort for someone so young, well done Coco, you’re a champion!!!

The hard luck story went to Tom Flaskett (Maroochy River) who stuck his ball five metres up a gum tree on the 5th hole “How do you stick a ball up a gum tree” (photo one).

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