In perfect conditions, Headland Golf Club hosted round 2 of the Sunshine Coast Zone Pennants Championship, where ladder leaders Mount Coolum, maintained top spot on the ladder after their 2/1 win over the newly formed Noosa Springs Golf Club, Noosa and Maroochy River also maintained their positions in second and third spots.........
respectively, after their drawn matches with Nambour and Gympie.
Headland moved up into fourth spot with their 3/0 win over Caloundra.
Gympie maintained fifth spot after drawing with Maroochy River.
Nambour jumped up one spot to seventh after drawing with Noosa, which left Noosa Springs in eighth spot after round two.
As was the case on day one, it was an absolute pleasure to witness the talent that was on display, as they gave it their best shot and at the same time played within the rules and etiquette of the game.
It would be remise of us not to thank Headland Golf Club and their team, for the fantastic job they did hosting the day, their course was in excellent condition and a true test to everyone’s game.
Also, to the club members, parents, and galleries who play an enormous part in making sure these days are an enjoyable experience for everyone, particularly for those that are experiencing the pennants format for the first time.
It was a brilliant effort to see Jasmine Lena (Noosa Springs) hold her nerve against the much more fancied Bailey Koch (Mt Coolum) to win 2up, and it was an equalling impressive sight to see Bailey hold his nerve after giving away so many shots! A very impressive performance by both Jasmine and Bailey!
Ionna Muir (Maroochy River) and Alex Wheatley (Gympie) also did a brilliant job taking their match to a draw which was an excellent performance given that this is their first experience with Pennants.
Round three will be hosted by Nambour Golf Club (February 25) who are looking forward to making everyone feel welcome.
