LGC Presentation Night

On Friday 2nd of December 2016 our Leongatha Golf Club Annual Presentation Night and Christmas party was held.  A good crowd of ninety players, family and guests were present for the evening.  It was particularly good to see all of the Club’s current life members present on the night, as well as a number of children, giving it a very good family feel.

There were a number of apologies on the night, the latest from Barry Stevens who had a health scare that day which prevented him from attending to pick up his Hyland Cup trophy, so we have our fingers crossed that Barry is recovering quickly.

Congratulations go to all the Women’s  award winners and in particular, to the Women’s Club Champion for 2016, Rebecca Thomas.

The Men’s Pennant sides competed in the South Gippsland District Golf Association Pennant Competition in 2016 and had great success winning Divisions 2, Division 3 and Division 4 flags in very tight final games.

Although Pennant is a Team event, clearly there were some very good individual players whom performed well each week. The outstanding Men’s pennant player of 2016 was Brendan Simon

The BJS Insurance Top Gun Shoot Out was held in November and Ian Murchie outlasted six chip off’s to win his first Top Gun title after seventeen contenders fell by the wayside and before beating Geoff Maher on the 18th hole. Frank Gill holds this year’s Pop Gun title after being first out of the shootout, losing a chip off on the 1st hole.

Of course all of these events were extremely well covered in the local papers and we thank our No. 1 news hound, Bryan McCorkell for his continued support in filing stories with the local press.
