The Victorian Men’s Country Championship, Junior Country Regions and the Cobram Barooga Open Amateur, played in conjunction at Cobram Barooga Golf Course for the very first time last weekend.
In the Junior Country Regions, the Southern Western District made it four wins in a row by finishing +56 for the tournament and 27 shots clear of Golf Peninsula in second place.
The Junior North East team consisted of Daniel Gill (Captain), Rhys Rigoni, Jack McAuliffe, Jez Rigoni, James McIntyre, Jacob Howard and Angus Webb. The local boys took out the Junior Regions handicap section with an aggregate score of nett +44. There were a total of 138 competitors in the event coming from seven districts across Victoria. This is a fantastic effort from our local junior golfers. The event will return to Cobram Barooga next year.
As part of a national roadshow Golf Australia’s Chyloe Kurdas, National Female Engagement Senior Manager and Megan Carr, Female Engagement Officer (Victoria) recently visited the North East to share with us the strategy for Vision 2025 with our golfing community. The presentation included:
- Introduction to Golf Australia’s Vision 2025 Strategy
- Introduction to the Australian Human Rights Commission’s Guidelines for the Promotion of Equal Opportunity in Golf
It was a very informative night which raised some robust conversation amongst the representatives from the clubs that attended.
Congratulations to all the players who made the 2019 Men’s and Juniors Pennant finals played at Commercial Club Albury last Sunday 28th April 2019.
