Gunabul challenge to drive golfers

GUNABUL Par 3 organiser Kelli Thorne says the challenge has been set for golfers lining up to take part in this Sunday’s Gunabul Golf Cup.

In its 12th year, the Gunabul Golf Cup can be contested by both individuals and teams of four.

While a major aspect of the day will be having fun and trying to crack the elusive ‘perfect game’, Thorne said the prize pool on offer would help to coax the form on course.

“We have prizes for the teams taking part as well as 18 nearest to the pins prizes,” she said.

“On top of this, there are seven major prizes and one major prize that this year we are keeping a mystery for something different.”

Thorne was reluctant to give away a hint about what the major prize, donated by Advice Partners, would be.

“It’s good, that’s all I will say,” she said. “A big thank you to Advice Partners for being so generous and helping us with this prize and also 4GY for their support.”

The day itself will be divided into two playing groups. The first group tees off at 8am while the second hits the course at midday.

A barbecue will be held at the end of the day along with presentations to winners.

The winner of the last year’s Gunabul Golf Cup was Anthony Rose and Thorne said he had a chance this year to make competition history.

“In the 12 years of holding this competition we have not had a back-to-back winner,” she said.

There is still time to join the playing field for the Gunabul Cup this Sunday. Contact Kelli Thorne at the Gunabul Par 3 on 5483 7676.
