The weather report did not look good, however the rain stayed away and the 15 Members that made the trip up to the Barossa Valley enjoyed pretty good conditions.

Nestled amongst the vineyards, the course was in great condition – but beware, any errant shot can put you into the thick bush and big trouble!

3rd (on count-back) = James Lunnay 35 points.

The next 6 place-getters also received a ball each.

South Lakes 2021 Vera Mortimer Victorious – Again !

Great spring weather for the 31 members who made the trip down south to challenge this well-maintained seaside course in Goolwa. It has a good mix of challenging holes with water hazards and well-placed bunkers ready to swallow any errant shots !

Back to the Corio Hotel for the presentations after the game, where the food was great and the staff friendly, although we were a little squashed in.

First = Vera Mortimer with 39 points

2nd = Rob Mulder with 37 points

3rd = Liz Wedge with 36 points (on a hole-by-hole count-back, bad luck Tony Harrison !)

The next 6 place-getters also received a ball each.


5th 0-19HC: Graeme Wheare 3.8m, 20+HC: Annette Pearce 7.0m

8th 0-19HC: Wolf Engel 4.1m, 20+ HC: Mark Duerden 5.5m

10th 0-19HC: Marcus Kernahan 6.5m, 20+HC: Nobody

Sandy Creek – Match Report

May 21st saw 23 SAOGA members teeing off on a crisp morning at Sandy Creek. The course was in good condition with some spectacular views of the Barossa Valley – and a few close up looks at the trees for some of us I am sure. With a small field and a tight course, scoring was very close. Taking the honours was Benn Cox on 37 points, with Jim Stobie (2nd) and  Ethan Ellis (3rd) with 36 points each (on count back, additional two players on 36 points).

The Summer Match Play cup was also presented with Mike Willis taking the spoils form John Elliot (2nd ) and Andrew Reid (3rd). The Winter Match Play comp kicks off in June.
