Renmark 2015 Results

65 adults and 15 children, incorporating 49 golfers attended the 2015 Renmark weekend. Weather was excellent for all 4 days. It was good to see some of our new members attend.
The Renmark CC was a good host yet again with plenty of food and drink available for everyone. The course was in good condition.
Our aim to encourage SAOGA sponsors to enter teams in the Friday competition was successful with a total of 10 teams entered. It was a great day with good feedback from our generous sponsors. Well done to Mat Kennedy and his ALS X Drilling Tools team to win the inaugural Sponsors Trophy.
Due to the downturn in the industry we were very concerned about our sponsorship but still putting together an enjoyable tournament – it worked out well. Everybody had a great time with good weather and golf. We even found some Karaoke stars at the dinner.
Good scores were around on all of the days.

Fantastic weather for our trip to The Dunes. Many members took advantage of the on-course accommodation and enjoyed a great golfing weekend. The course was a real test of golf with big bunkers and rough that can swallow your ball in an instant. Also, slick greens that break your heart.

Blackwood Wolf Engel Wins

A very cold tee off for our round at Blackwood Golf Club – an early battle with frozen fingertips awaited the field for the first few holes. Blackwood is a tricky layout, some shots are blind and unless you have local knowledge you can come unstuck very quickly. Wolf Engel won the day with 35 points nice to see an A Grade winner.

Gawler 2015 – Andrew Reid Wins

I lovely sunny day greeted us at Gawler and the course was in excellent condition and 33 starters. Some confusion with the bookings with new management at Gawler caused some slow play, two other social clubs were hitting off at similar tee times. It was noted with the Pro and we have been assured next year there will not be a repeat. Still some magnificent scores were handed in:
