RESULTS: Kingaroy Golf Club tees off for 2020

THE 2020 golf season was officially launched in the peanut capital as the Kingaroy Golf Club hosted their annual open day on Sunday.

Life member Colonel Harch hit the first ball down the middle of the fairway to mark the start of the year's play.

The only 18-hole course in the South Burnett hosted more than 50 competitors, but only two could emerge victorious - Rodney Evans took out the men's competition and Chris Edmunds took out the ladies'.

But perhaps the bigger accomplishment for Edmund on the day was hitting her first hole in one.

"I have been playing golf on and off since the early 90s," she said.

"Over the past few years I have really started to play more consistently.

"It was my first hole in one on the weekend and it was very exciting."

Kingaroy Golf Club committee member Veronnica Harris said it was an extremely social club.

"Today we have approximately 60 people here for the season opener," Harris said.

"It's a very inclusive club and we encourage people of all ability levels to come down and try the sport.

"The rain's held off and the course is playing really well."
