GOLF: Saturday's Holden Scramble was won by the Moranbah team of Kelvin Sloan, Paul Doherty, Judd Crompton and William Craven with a fine score of 54.75.
The runners-up were Justin Butler, Matthew and Ryan Goldman, and Ron Jamieson with 56.375.
Both teams move forward to the next round at Capricorn Resort course on October 16.
Two teams from Moranbah and one from Nelson Bay Golf Club joined 29 other local teams in the Crossley Holden-sponsored event.
Last Thursday's men's competition was played in Goldilocks conditions, not too windy, not too wet and not too dry.
This reflected in the scores for the day with Peter Lewis winning both the nine hole stroke, 28 net, and 18 hole B grade with 64 net.
Winner of A-grade was Rob Stanley, 67, followed by Wayne Russell with 71 on a countback from Wayne Temby.
Runner-up in B-grade was John Roser with 66 net.
The rundown in all grades included Les Bradford 67, Michael Caton 69, Dean Kercher 70, Pascal Neunreuther 71, and John Dodds, Andrew Albergo and Ron Jamieson, all on 72.
The rundown in the nine holes saw Theunis Venter with 31.
