Thanks to Canungra Area Golf Club for hosting the GCDGA Gold Coast Club Stableford Challenge Monday 20th August 2018.  Well done to Surfers Paradise Golf Club who had 15 players in the field.

Round 3 coming up next month at Arundel Hills.

Results available later in the week but Col Baxter had a fine 37 points in the wind and with tricky pin placements will be hard to beat.

Golfers came from local clubs, as well as many other clubs in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and overseas players from New Zealand and other south-east Asian countries.
