    Default 2015 QLD Champs – 29-31 May – Official Thread

    Time is upon us again for the famed OZgolf Qld Champs, and as the Barnum Brothers may have said, we are “taking the show on the road”!

    The prestigous Duncan Bennett Memorial Trophy will again be up for grabs as golfers across the country compete to be Qld's top Ozgolfer.

    Past Winners:
    2004: Iain
    2005: GazGolf
    2006: DC68
    2007: BrisVegas
    2008: Davemason
    2009: PeteThePilot
    2010: Oxy
    2011: Nudgee
    2012: Ferrins
    2013: Marto65
    2014: DaveS
    2015: Could it be YOU??

    Accommodation:
    Friday and Saturday night

    http://www.coralcovegolfclub.com/resort
    $320 for 2 nights in a villa (2br 1 bath - sleeps up to 4 - self contained) - That's a stella $40/night per person
    $540 for 2 nights in a condo (3br 3bath - sleeps up to 7 – self contained) - That's also an awesome $39/night per person
    There is a restaurant / tavern on site, as well as a pool, BBQ’s and tennis courts.


    I have reserved 5 villas (20 people). If you want to share with less than a full quota, you are probably best booking another villa / condo yourself. Also, the accommodation is a 2 night deal, so cheap rates are valid only for the 2 night stay.

    For those thinking of taking the family and want their own digs, resort can be contacted on 1800 356 722

    I also have room for 8 at my place for those who want to break the return trip up Sunday night.

    The Golf:
    (All golf to be prebooked and includes fees for prizes (overall / NTP etc).)

    Friday: One of Country Queensland’s finest: Maryborough golf club. We will be playing in the Friday Stableford Comp. 11:00am tee - 6 groups booked
    http://www.maryboroughgolfclub.com/

    $35 walking only (carts are all booked out).

    Note: Maryborough is a 3hr from Brisbane Airport. We will be heading to Coral Cove after the round – approx. 90min

    Saturday: Change of plans - Bargara may have forgotten this day was ladies club champs, but Rum City's finest - Bundaberg GC has stepped up to the challenge, and is going out of their way to look after us.
    http://www.bundaberggolfclub.com.au/

    Tee tee start - single stableford from 11:00am.

    $40 + $17 ea for cart (optional).

    Note: Bundaberg is approx. 4.5hrs from Brisbane Airport, and 20min from Coral Cove

    Sunday: Did anybody say Par 6? We head to the home of the 2015 QLD Champs - Coral Cove Resort. approx 7:30am tee.
    http://www.coralcovegolfclub.com/golf-course

    Social round only:
    $55 Inc compulsory cart for those staying onsite
    $65 Inc compulsory cart for those not staying onsite

    Monday: Not a lot of Monday comp rounds, but Royal Gympie and Cooroy are on the drive home, or the Sunshine Coast with its many courses is a small detour. I will get more information together pending interest. (Pay on the day)

    NOTE: All golf to be prebooked and includes fees for prizes (overall / NTP etc). I will register interest below and deposit / payments paid early would be most appreciated. Some people may get cheaper rates for reciprocal etc, I will adjust accordingly ON THE DAY if applicable, and refund then.

    Course ratings:
    Maryborough GC – White Par 70, Scr 69, Slope 119
    Bundaberg GC – White Par 71, Scr 69, Slope 118
    Coral Cove – Blue Par 71, Scr 70, Slope 129


    Additional Information:
    Flight Information:
    Flying into Brisbane leaves drives as above.
    Flying into Sunshine Coast - 2hrs to Maryborough, 3.5hrs to Coral Cove. Good option as cheap flights from Melb / Sydney
    Flying into Hervey Bay - 30min to Maryborough, 1.5hrs to Coral Cove. Flights not as cheap. Direct to Brisbane or Sydney. Sydney times aren't golf freindly.
    Flying into Bundaberg - 75min to Maryborough, 15min to Coral Cove. Direct to Brisbane and connections only.

    And a map to help out:
    https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?m...k.kl-RFx1ICgSw

    And the fine print:
    1. You will not be considered as entered until you supply your Full name, club and Golflink.
    2. Deposits (min 20%) to be paid by end March. Remaining by end April. Late entries will be accepted pending availability.
    3. All rounds for championship purposes will be scored as stableford.
    4. We do this for fun, so don't be a dick if we don't quite have what you want, or you don't like it.

    It is amazing how much better you feel after 9 hours sleep, which isn't far short of what I got in the three days I was away.

    I'm now lucid enough to put a few thoughts together.

    Thanks to all my playing partners, who were Sunday Hack, Ploppy Pat, Ferrins, AndyP, Nudgee, LagerLover, Benno_R, Peter RS and Daves. Every round was a pleasure just for the company, and the laughs we had during the rounds will stay with me for a while.

    I also saw some good golf in parts from just about all the abovenamed, but special mention obviously goes to Benno_R for performing when it counted. I recall some of his early posts as a shot per hole golfer with a massive push slice. He's got rid of that for the most part, and he's now a shot every second hole player who still has a few handicap reductions in him.

    I struggled a bit with the lack of sleep, but I think I was better off for being in the centre of the action and the subject of some of the jokes. It was certainly funnier being where I was rather than being on the outside looking (and listening) in.

    I'll tell one golf story, which I should have told on Sunday afternoon around the table, but the time wasn't right. Why didn't I win after holding the overnight lead? Here's why. On the long drive 6th my drive was (naturally) a long way behind the long drive, but on the fairway. I hit a worm burner with my next, which wasn't a good shot, but would've gone into a Ok position, except that MY BALL HIT THE LONG DRIVE MARKER. This cost me about 40 metres, and left me with a long shot to the green, which I totally stuffed up and sprayed into the 2ft deep cabbage to the right, never to be found again. A wipe instead of an almost certain birdie, and the champs was lost. So much bad luck!

    Apart from that, good times all the time. I hope the NSW Champs in a month's time can reach this standard as an entertainment event.

    Sounds like Benno's title needs to have an * next to it

    That maybe the case. Now the trophy is firmly in my downstairs toilet, I can tell you all of my devious plan.

    Step 1 - Pair the unfortunate Jim with the groups loudest/noisiest/drunkiest player...

    Step 2 - Continuation of step 1 by setting up a villa with "not the greatest" solo sleeping arrangements

    Step 3 - Lull competitor into false sense of security by tieing with him Friday, and going 3 down to him on Saturday

    Step 4 - Get a local ring in to play the Sunday, win the long drive, and have him place the marker in the line I knew competitors 2nd shot would be

    Step 5 - Calamity ensues...

    So if you think my efforts are worthy of a "*" my friend, then "*" me up!!

    Great work benno and congras on the win.

    Thanks for organizing the weekend I just hope the resort will have us back after the caretaker didn't like the chair art .

    If there is to be a next time, let me know an advance I'll work on Bargara GC to have a day at both Bargara & Coral Cove next time even if I have to book out some tee times at Coral Cove on the Saturday from 11am.
    Coral Cove GC on rotation for the QLD Champs

    We all have our gripes, my eagle putt on that hole hit the hole dead centre and lipped out.

    Great long weekend. After playing the last few weeks in cold temperatures in Melbourne, it was weird to play in heat and humid conditions again.

    Benno mate congrats on the deserved win and on organising a fantastic champs. Bloody great effort!!

    Thanks to my playing partners that endured what was without doubt the worst golf I have probably ever played (yes Even worse that Vic champs).

    Thanks LagerLover for all the beers during our round on Saturday, made the painful golf much easier to bear.

    And a special thanks to Peppas for the genuinely sincere hug you gave me before you left with your well deserved Naga trophy!!

    Let's do it again next year.

    I love the overhead view that GameGolf gives of the tee shot on the 2nd at Coral Cove.



    Interestingly, the mobile app version shows the same shot with the tide out, as we played it on the day.
