The Social Golf Club Pennant season came to an end on Sunday with our finalists enjoy all that Victoria Golf Club had to offer. Part of their prize for making the Final was a delicious 3 course meal on Saturday night, overnight accommodation, breakfast, golf and lunch all for FREE at Victoria Golf Club the world number 75!
The boys from One Step Further lost in the Semi-Finals last year (hence the team name) and they took full advantage of the Finals weekend and what Victoria Golf Club had to offer by playing a practice round on Saturday arvo. Comments over dinner on Saturday night from the Pretenders were that this could go badly for them as perhaps they had over prepared…only time would tell. Many other things were discussed on Saturday night as both teams enjoyed a few bottles of Red…and then a few more.
After the beautiful mild weather on Saturday the teams had a typical lovely winters day on Sunday, being cool and windy with clear skies.
A player or two probably enjoyed themselves a little bit too much on Saturday night and struggled to find fairways or greens early on. However all matches were very close with One Step Further ahead in all matches through the turn, 3 were 1up and the other 2up. Rob Saunders was the first to claim victory 4&3, closely followed by Chris O’Connor on the next hole 3&2. Matt Wilson then got up 2&1 with Dale Batchelor finishing all square.
One Step Further goes Two Steps Further! What will they call themselves next year?
The Pretenders our runners up had a fantastic season, after not even making the finals last year, their strong competitive juices were flowing all year but the undefeated One Step Further were just too good for them on Sunday.
The 2019 event is going to be bigger and better and is now open for registration. All dates and venues have been locked in with some fabulous new venues coming on board. We will be limiting the field to 24 teams to get in quick before we fill up. Find out more HERE.
