2010 GVDGA Senior Player of the Year Award

The Goulburn Valley District Golf Association would like to congratulate James Zappelli for winning the 2010 GVDGA Senior Player of the Year Award.

The award takes into account the number of events played by our senior district members, and their rankings in each event entered. In 2011, it is hoped to expand the award to other members of the GVDGA, in both Junior and Handicap divisions.

The aim of the award is to encourage members of each district club to enter events throughout our district, and the rest of the state.

Special thanks to Custom Golf who donated the prize of a set of GolfPride Multi-Compond grips (red and black).

Next year the GVDGA hopes to run a more formal trophy with a far larger
prize pool.

Congratulations to James, who's effort this year has be outstanding, and to
those who have made the effort this year to play more events and develop
their game.

A full run down of points is available on this link.

I wish you all the best for 2011.

Good Golfing

COBRAM             0                    1.5
PARKLAND 2        0                    1

A good day was had by all, Kialla's win over Cobram was a notable result. The boys from Kialla played well to hold back the short handicap players of cobram, 55 shots in total Cobram needed to counteract, the boys from the south may be the favorites early in the season. 

Another match which was close, Michel V Maskell. A short putt missed on the last by Maskell, got Michel over the line. Great to see one of the new players on the scene stepping up, Maskell is another of the Parkland talents along with Mclean & Scapin, brother/ sister team. 
Thanks to Mooroopna golf Club, the staff at Mooroopna were very helpful & the course  continues to impress.

Update. Vic Boys Championships 2010.

 Monday, September 20, 2010
A tough day at the Long Island GC was had by Luke Petherick & Lachy Devine today. With the rain & wind, the best Luke could record was 83 & Lachy 87. At last report Kyle was still on the course, having an afternoon tee time.
Jimmy Bannan is the clubhouse leader with 74. Jimmy is from the Growling Frog GC.  One of the personalities in the State Junior Squad. Jim will not be leaving anything to chance tomorrow at Royal Melbourne.

Luke is still in the hunt for a start Wednesday, he needs something in the mid 70's. This is well with in him, lets hope he can do what we have seen so often this year.

Lachy needs a strong round tomorrow & the under 16 age group to dominate the open catagory. This will make it easier for Lach to move into Wednesday.

Kyle, 91. Not a day to remember for the young gun from Shepparton GC. As we stress with all the boys who venture to the big town. It is a journey with many things to be learnt, I'm sure the 3 boys learnt something today which will help them on there next trip down the fairways.

They tee it up at Royal Melbourne GC, (east course) tomorrow. Update to come tomorrow night.
