RESULTS-District Champs

An exciting 3-way play-off was required to determine the winner of the 2021 District Championships (Scratch Division), that was conducted at the Goulburn Golf Club on Sunday 19th December.  Three players finished tied on 71 (par) after 18-holes of blustery golf at a slightly water-logged course — Adam Robinson (Cooma and Federal), Jono Gann (Goulburn) and Dom Falk (Goulburn).  DGA’s Vice President and referee, Les Wallace, who was officiating at the event, took the 3 of them out for the sudden death play-off, just as the winds were abating, but the rain was starting.

Robbo scored a birdie on the first hole, to confirm his win, and Dom then scored a birdie on the 2nd to move above Jono (who would have been 2nd on a count back).

In the handicap competition Yowani’s Chris Winslade, (recently moved to Royal Canberra), playing off a handicap of 3, scored a 1-under par nett round of 70 to take the main voucher prize from Gold Creek’s Richard Hope (7 h/c) 72 nett and Royal’s Don Jordan (2 h/c) net 73.

Vouchers were also awarded to the best senior player (55yrs+) and best junior (under 18yrs) scores.  Chris Winslade won the former, but as the event Conditions only allow for one major prize per player, it was then awarded to local stalwart Steve Bicknell who came in second with a gross score of 76.  Royal Canberra junior star Angelo Bourandanis won the junior voucher with a score of 73 gross.

All vouchers were obtained from Drummond Golf in Fyshwick.

My thanks to Club Captain Scott Nolan for his help and to the Goulburn Golf Club, for hosting the event. Special thanks also to the Course Super and his assistants, who presented a great course after only a week since it was flooded and for removing large trees that had been blown-over, that morning.  Thanks also to Les Wallace for coming out to referee.
