South Gippsland Golf Classic Washup

The 2016 South Gippland Golf Classic has been run and won. The annual 9-day event which was run for the 27th time, commenced at Yarram on Saturday 13th February and concluded at Foster on Sunday 21st, and again proved to be a most popular event. Entrants came from most Australian states and even overseas (USA and Wales), and played a total of around 1500 rounds of golf over the journey.

Our day of the Classic, the Friday 4-ball event on the 19th, was an outstanding success with a capacity field of 256 players enjoying our course and hospitality. Our thanks go to our hardworking groundstaff who presented the course in great condition, to our clubhouse staff, and to the army of volunteers who ensures the day was a success.

It was great to see so many of our members taking the opportunity to play other courses in the district. Severol of them performed well, none better than Brendan Simon. Brendon teamed well with brother in law Chris Indian in the 4 ball at Yarram to win with 48 points, then followed it up with Chris, Coral Gray and Ben Ferrari-Mela to win the handicap section of the Ambrose event at Korumburra on Sunday 14th. He again teamed up with Chris Indian in our 4 ball event, coming third in A grade. He posted a creditable 32 points at Mirboo North in the B Grade individual stableford on Saturday 20th, and then blitzed the field at Foster the next day with 43 points to win the day and the 2-day classic event. Well done Brendan!

Others to perform well included Mick and Bec Thomas who, along with 2 others, won the scratch section of the Ambrose event at Korumburra. Leroy Sharrock had a very good day at Phillip Island on the Thursday, winning the A grade stableford event with 39 points (72 off the stick). Also a pair of “fill ins” in the form of Libby Seebeck and Julie Howard won the B Grade ladies 4-ball event at Leongatha on Friday 19th. Gerry Mooney was unlucky to miss out on winning the C grade 2-say Classic event, being beaten into second place on count back. Congratulations to all.

After making the presentations on the final day at Foster, the President of the Classic Committee, Trevor Steer announced his retirement from the position. Trevor, a Leongatha life member, has guided the classic committee for the last 11 years and feels that it is now time he devoted more effort to ensuring that Collingwood make the finals this year. We wish him well in that endeavour and thank him for his outstanding contribution to golf in the South Gippsland area!

Final of SGDGA Junior Pennant 2016

Result of  the Final of the SGDGA U21 Pennant Season for 2016


The final of the SGDGA U21 Pennant season was played out at the Leongatha Golf Course today, Sunday 21 February 2016 in fantastic conditions.  A strong band of family and friends  accompanied the players from Lang Lang  and Wonthaggi Golf Club U21 Teams.

A mix up with schedules left Lang Lang a player down before the start giving Wonthaggi the early edge, although I am sure both golfers would have rather fought for the win on the course.

The remaining four matches were evenly split with two wins to Lang Lang and two wins to Wonthaggi and with the walkover, Wonthaggi secured this year’s title.

The contests were played in great spirit with some fine shot making.
