The inaugural Ontrack Thoroughbreds golf shootout proved to be a tough competition with a handful of strokes covering the field.
The shootout was held at the Emerald Lakes Course at Carrara and it is going to be a monthly affair for Ontrack.
Managing Director Grant Morgan said last Friday’s opening contest proved to be an outstanding success.
“We had 10 teams of two players line up and there was some keen competition for the $500 Ontrack vouchers for the winning team members.
“At the end there were only six points from first to last, so it was a pretty keenly contested affair. Clint Vidler and his partner Tim Baz were the winners and hopefully they’re back next month to defend their title.
“The idea was to provide a bit of fun for Ontrack clients and newcomers and the nine hole Ambrose format is a perfect way to wrap up the working week.
“We even had a couple of young guys drive three hours from Kingaroy to take part so it obviously struck a chord with golfers and racing fans.
“The next Ontrack Shootout will be held at Emerald Lakes on Friday September 7 so if you would like a hit organise a team and check out the Ontrack website on www.getontrack.com.au.
“The great thing about the event is that the Ambrose format provides an opportunity for good golfers and those who are just hackers.
“It’s a chance to have a couple of hours of fun and then join the Ontrack team for a cold drink and something to eat at the beautiful Emerald Lakes course afterwards,” said Grant Morgan.
