Mixed open could change in 2020
JUST under 30 male and female golfers enjoyed the 2020 Biloela Mixed Open today at the Biloela Golf Club.
Teeing off from 10.30am, the 18 holes American Foursome event was won by Adam Mollis and Casey Drochmann.
The pair hit a score of 65 with Darryl and Kylie Myles finishing in second with a score of 74.
"Being able to have people come out and play from all around our region today is great," Mollis said.
"It's a fun game that always provides a bit of banter amongest your teammates and other members of the club."
Mollis also pointed out that of the 13 teams, only four of them had an A grade player which provided a chance for less skilled or players looking for fun to have a good hit.
Mollis' mixed partner Drochmann had a hand in organising the running of today's event and she said there are plans in motion to change the format up for next year.
"We want to have Mixed as the main event for the day but also have a side event for the men to play as well," Drochmann said.
"It would give the men who are playing in the Mens Open tomorrow an opportunity to come out and play and have a look at the course before the big open the next day.
"It would be good for those serious male players who wouldn't be able to play in a lot of fun lighthearted formats like the Mixed Open."
The Biloela Golf Club are anticipating 80 male golfers to play in tomorrow's open which is the first one championship of 2020 in Central Queensland.
The Mens Open tees off from 8am.
