Men's Country Champion – Monday
City Golf Club hosted the first day of the championship, with the Fourball championship starting the week.
Difficult conditions with the course of the same length and with the same pin positions in the last round of the Queensland PGA, held the day before, challenged players considerably. However, the City GC duo of Bruce Spendelove and Brian Richards claimed the 2019 Men's Championship four teams at 43 points, with a close three-way countback.
The second place was awarded to Michael Treay (Bay Islands) and John Smith (Craignish) because of their close search for the winners.
And third place was awarded to John Anderson (Sandy Gallop) and Albert Horsfall (Mt Coolum).
Landfredites men – Tuesday
Players left for Toowoomba Golf Club for day two and the Foursomes championship on Tuesday with 45 pairs competing for their league titles.
The dynamic duo of father and son with Norm (Dysart) and Ray Foster (Calliope) won the victory with a total of 74, despite the challenging, narrow fairways that were presented on Toowoomba. Their precision with their iron game helped them to seal the deal.
Winners of 2016 Sam Blackshaw and Anthony Timms of City GC drove back the lead with just one shot to claim two hundred.
City GC duo of Sam Blackshaw and 2014 Foursomes second and also Anthony Timms claimed the 2016 Men & # 39; s Country Foursomes Championship with a score of 75. On the demanding Keperra layout were Timms and Blackshaw & # 39; s birdies on the 5th and 7th crucial for securing a fourfold victory over Jeff Browning (Boonah) and Doug Westlake (Gympie).
Division 2 big money went to the Murgon duo, Peter Hegarty and James Wright for a score of 86.
