2011 Winter Pennant Information

 Thursday, June 16, 2011

2011 GVDGA Winter Pennant Information.

The GVDGA Executive have voted unaminously to allow the introduction of ride-on and standard golf Carts, for the HANDICAP Sections only, ie Division 4, 5 & 6. 

Permission must be gained from the Club Captain of the course pennant is to played on to bring your cart or ride-on buggy. This is to allow banning if the course is not in a suitable condition for pennant (i.e. too wet). The GVDGA suggest that you contact the venue on the Saturday prior to the game to seek permission from the Captain to use your motorised transport.

The condition has been changed to allow more members who need the assistance of motorised transport to play pennant golf, and therefore boost the number of players available for each club.

Divisions 1, 2, & 3 will remain the same, only the Captain of the GVDGA can give approval for the use of motorised buggies or carts in competition.

Team and Result Sheets are now on the pennant webpage, along with a copy of the conditions of competition and the currenrt draw.

Hill Top & Mooroopna win 2011 Summer Pennant Finals

 Tuesday, March 15, 2011
2011 Summer Pennant

Last Sunday summer pennant concluded at Shepparton GC with Hill Top and Mooroopna GC's being victorious with a 3 /2 result in both matches.

In Section 1 Hill Top started on fire with a 5&4 then 5&3 results from their first two matches and it was Darryl Phillips and Peter Baird who won the deciding match 3&2 to ensure back to back flags for Hill Top.  Performance of the day went to Arthur Gledhill or as he used to be known to his junior mates "The Weak Grey Carp" from Hill Top who was only 5 over the card through 14 holes playing off his 18 handicap. 


In Section 2 both Mooroopna and Kialla had two convincing wins each and thus it was left to the No1 pairings to decide the contest.  Mooroopna Club Captain Peter VanTiggelen and partner Brad O'Brien held their nerve against Jordy Geisler and Dick Hutchinson to win 2&1 and give Mooroopna the contest.

It was great to see 9 junior golfers represented in the two finals and judging by their performances each of the finalists have many more years of success to come.

Thanks go to each of the clubs for their hospitality during the series and to the course curators who presented the courses in fantastic condition.  Thanks also to Hill Top GC for stepping in at late notice to host the semi finals.
