Frank Smedley – Hole in One

Popular member and talented lefthander,  Frank Smedley achieved every golfer’s dream by hole out on the 16th hole today.

Long time mate, Jim Arnott presented Frank with a dozen golf balls at today’s presentation and had to confess that Frank hit an excellent shot to achieve this mighty feat.

Men’s & Women’s 36 Hole Leongatha Open Amateur

50 locals and visitors contested the 2018 edition of the Leongatha Open Amateur.  Players were greeted with a golf course in tremendous condition and ideal weather.  This golf course continues to test the abilities of some of the best young golfers in the state.  Leongatha member Anthony Sparkes took out the AM nett event playing off 10 with a nett 70.  Another local in Andrew Henley had the second best afternoon nett score with 71 playing off 14.  This paved the way for Rik De Longville from Commonwealth Golf Club to win the 36 hole nett event with 149 playing off a handicap of 2.  Rik stormed home with a scratch score of 71 in the afternoon.

The women’s field had just the 3 competitors this year, but 3 very good competitors in Keeley Marx (h’cap 2) from the Heritage, local member Rebecca Thomas (h’cap 5) & Kingston Heath member Ashleigh Hall (h’cap +1).  Ashleigh proved too consistent over the 36 holes taking out the title with 156.  The men’s 36 hole scratch event went to Victoria GC’s Lewis Schenk by 5 shots from his nearest competitors with a total of 147.  Lewis had the best AM score with 72 and cruised home in front of Phillip Island’s Mark Boulton (152) and Royal Melbourne’s David Shimmin (152).

Thanks once again to all competitors and we look forward to welcoming you back to Leongatha Golf Club in the future.
