TOWN OF NAMBOUR CHAMPION

Jake Crowther has added another prestigious title to his resume, taking out the 2016 Town of Nambour Men's Open Championship, with a creditable par total over the 36 holes.

Jake carded a 67, 69 to defeat the fast finishing Mathew Walkenhorst, who struggled to a 73 on the first round but recovered marvellously with a 3 under 65 on Sunday.

Other NGC players to figure in the major prizes were Barry Lihou (Open 36 Hole Nett), Doug Courtney (B Grade 36 Hole Gross), Mickey Schimak-Orrell (B Grade 36 Hole Gross R/up), Charles Dettrick (C Grade 36 Hole Gross), Sal Saffoiti (R/Up C Grade 36 Hole Gross), Bailey Murchie (Junior 36 Hole Nett), Gonzo (C Grade 36 Hole Nett), Bruce Kirkwood, Seniors 36 Hole Nett), Trevor Wesener (B Grade 1st 18 Hole Gross), Chris Sloane (C Grade 1st 18 Hole Nett), Remi Hagge (B Grade 2nd 18 Hole Gross) and  Rick Finch (C Grade 2nd 18 Hole Gross)

The 2016 Open again was a huge success, and consistently sets the benchmark for the Zone Open competitions. Fields for each day again set records for NGC, with 211 and 194 players competing on the Saturday and Sunday respectively. Sponsors added to the atmosphere of the day, with some great displays of goods and colourful banners and promotional signs.

Greens Director Mark Elliott was chuffed with the way our course was presented, and the quality of the positive feedback  given by the players.
