DOES Central Queensland golfer Trevor Tougher know the golf course at Yeppoon Golf Club like the back of his hand?
You bet he does!
After all, he is the club’s superintendent and last month won his umpteenth Men’s Open Championship when he fired rounds of 66-67 for a 133 total – nine-under par.
“I’m not sure how many open championships I’ve won at the club, but I think it is 11 or 12,” said Trevor, who plays off +1.
“Last year I won the club championship for the 20th time, which was great but I don’t think I will win any more championships,” the 52-year-old said. “The kids are coming through now, which is great for the club.” Defending champion Dylan Parish (137) finished runner-up.
Yeppoon golfers always prove are hard to beat on their home course as they took out all the gross and runners-up prizes.
Sam Atwell won the A2 grade with gross score of 156 to finish four shot clear of Michael Chelepy. Craig Greening took out the B grade when he returned a score of 161 with Ray Coote (164) finishing runner-up.
In C grade, new Yeppoon Golf Club member Joshua Lorraway (177) was successful winning the title by six strokes from Damon Stover. In the nett, Aaron Malone won 36-hole A grade with a score of 143 – three clear of Scott Gibbs.
Club stalwart Terry Bulger (143) won the A2 grade from Gary Jensen (144); Kyle Arstall (138) won the B grade from Dennis Manion (147) and Ben Prinsloo won the C grade with a nett score of 144 – two strokes ahead of John Gutherie.
