Kids Conquer Coolum
Well done to the Nelson brothers who won Coolum Beach’s North Shore Realty Classic Pairs event. Youth reigned supreme with the Nelson brothers winning the North Shore Realty Classic pairs played at Coolum Beach Bowls Club in December. Kane (14) and older brother Jacob were one of only two teams to win all six games. Their six wins with a margin of 82 saw them emerge as worthy winners over the Booval Swifts Team of Steve Bell and Chris Mudd; six wins with a margin of 37 with Max Jaffary and Kurt Brown; five wins with a margin of 100 rounding off the podium in third place.
A total of 40 teams competed for over $8,000 in prizemoney in hot and windy conditions on splendid greens. Day two provided stiff competition with many changes to the leader board, and while eight teams started the day undefeated, by the start of the final games this was reduced to three. Congratulations to all of the winners and the club thanks the major sponsors Gillian and Noel Mooney for their support.
