DARLING Downs has regained Queensland men's district golf supremacy after wrapping up the 2012 title at City Golf Club today.

Nigel Weldon, Anthony Timms, Troy Neville and Justin Shine combined for Downs to claim the Queensland Men's Inter Association Teams Event ahead of 13 other districts.

The win was Downs first at the championships since its 2006 success at Barcaldine.

Downs began the final day with a one-shot lead before closing with a team score of 205 to take the gross winner's trophy by six shots from the Gold Coast.

Wide Bay and Moreton tied for third, another six shots back.

South West Queensland took out the 2012 nett trophy.

The three-day tournament featured 4-ball play on Sunday followed by foursomes on Monday and yesterday's stroke-play event which combined each team's three leading scores.

Timms led the way for Downs today with a two-under-par round of 66 to also win the singles event. Weldon carded a 69 and Neville 70.

"Tournaments like this are very much about team play and generally stroke-play on the final day decides them," Timms said.

"I putted extremely well today - the best I have for a while and things came together well for us."

Weldon, who is a member of the City Golf Club ground staff, was part of the victorious 2006 Downs team which also included Shine.

"This is always a good competition and it's a thrill to win it again after six years in front of our home crowd," Weldon said.
