Simpson Cup Round 4 at The Vines

Glenelg 6 ½ def Tea Tree Gully ½

  1. Jack Tanner def Sean Park 1 up
  2. Kade Bryant def Chris Austin 4/3
  3. Harry Burner def Ben Hallam 3/2
  4. Michael Munn halved with Matt McMahon
  5. Josh Hayes def Jacin Cook 4/3
  6. Jack Leonard def Adam Husdell 8/6
  7. Nick Wake def Grant Debais 4/3

Outside of finals this was really one of our best performances as a team in recent years. Tea Tree Gully came into this match having beaten Grange and Royal Adelaide and were shaping up as a genuine contender. Most of the matches were close early and at the half way mark it looked like the result could go either way. However all of our players upped their game on the back nine to give us a convincing win. The win also significantly improved our individual match results which could be important in the event of a count back at the end of the minor round.

Out first was veteran Nick Wake fresh off a MVP performance in the recent series against the Australian Defence Forces at Royal Adelaide. He was square after 4 holes but then started to get the upper hand reaching the turn 2 up.  By the 13th he had extended the lead to 5 holes before closing out the win on the 15th.

At no. 6 Jack Leonard got off to a flyer to be 2 up after four and he never gave his opponent an inch. He was 5 up at the turn and then won the next 3 holes for a huge 8/6 victory.  Still only 15 years old Jack has got his Simpson Cup career off to a great start.

Josh Hayes was in a close tussle early reaching the turn 1 up before losing the 10th to a long birdie putt. He then won the next two holes to take the advantage again and pushing on for a 4/3 win.

Michael Munn was a little out of sorts with his game and was having a tough time of it on the front nine falling to 3 down after nine holes against Matt McMahon. However he was able to find something and dig deep on the back nine to gradually peg back the lead to be two down after 12 and back to square after 14. It was still square heading down the 17th with Michael in a greenside bunker and Matt on the green albeit with a long putt. Michael hit a great bunker shot to close range and his par putt was conceded. Matt needed to two putt to halve the hole but ruined our expectations by holing the birdie putt at speed to take the lead going to the last. Matt hit what looked like a great tee shot as did Michael who found the fairway. However Matt’s ball actually hit the trees on the left corner of the dogleg and went further left into the trees. He could only advance it down into the fairway bunker about 20m short of the green. Meanwhile Michael safely found the putting surface. Matts bunker shot came out hot over the back of the green. Unable to get up and down Michael was able to two putt to win the hole and halve the match. A great result given the status of the match at half way.

The mercurial Harry Burner was up against former Glenelg member Ben Hallam. There was nothing in it on the front nine as they reached the turn all square. Harry won the 10th and was 2 up thru 13. That was still the score heading down the short par 4 16th. Harry bombed a drive just short and left of the green while Ben was over on the adjoining 4th fairway. Harry clipped a perfect pitch shot off a tricky lie from 25m or so that rolled right up to the pin and into the hole for eagle! Ben was not able to match it giving Harry the match. What a way to finish!

At No. 2 Kade Bryant by his own admission was struggling with his game in the opening holes. However he was able to hang in there and at worst he was only 1 down against Chris Austin. He was able to find his groove through the middle of the round to be 1 up after nine then 3 up through 13. A perfect approach into the 15th set up a short birdie putt to win the hole and the match for another strong win for Kade.

At no. 1 Jack Tanner was playing his last match for us before heading back to the US to further his golf career. On the front nine his opponent Sean Park was simply playing too well and after 9 holes Jack found himself 3 down and in a spot of bother. However Jack was far from done with and with the confidence of a player who shot 63 at Glenelg during the week, he started to claw his way back into the match. He got one back on the 12th but an unfortunate 3 putt on 13 saw him back to 3 down with holes rapidly running out. That’s when he really slipped into gear winning the next 3 holes including a birdie on 16 to get back to square. Both players were out of position off the 17th tee but Jack was able to advance it to the left edge of the green. Sean couldn’t reach the green and his pitch shot came up 8 feet short. Jack safely two putted and when Sean’s putt missed Jack found himself in front for the first time. Jack hit an excellent tee shot on 18 while Sean was in the trees left. A great second shot from Jack left 12 feet for birdie. Sean did well with his second shot from the trees and was able to get up and down for par. Jack just missed his birdie but it didn’t matter as he just needed to halve the hole for the win.

So another great result for us against quality opposition. We have retained top spot on the ladder and are well positioned to push towards the semi-finals with 3 minor round matches remaining. Thanks to the caddies Wayne Tanner, Adam Bryant, Justin Howard, Sam Wake, Scott Kerruish and Ryan Faggotter along with our loyal band of supporters.

There are no matches this Sunday on the long weekend. Matches resume on 16th June when we play Thaxted Park at Grange west.

Our talented team played Grange at Grange today. A formidable task indeed.

Grange defeated Glenelg 3 1/2 to 1 1/2.

Bec Hardy starred today and won her match. Good steady golf and such an admirable demeanor from Bec. Well done.

Maiya Jakupec played well again this week, squaring her match. Keep it up Maiya. You are off to a great start.

Jill Hodge played some terrific bunker shots and some solid putts but just fell short of a win.

Zoe Manton was against a very strong golfer and just fell short of a win. She had some good shots today and tried to stay in the match.

Christine Trimmer kept herself in the game but eventually lost her match in the end after fighting hard.

Yet again, we look the part in our black and gold Pennant uniforms that the girls so proudly wear. They are such a cohesive group of girls that are quick to support each other and give credit to their opponents when it is due.

The smiles on their faces in this terrific photo is indicative of how much they love representing the great GGC.

Thank you to our Pennant sponsors for helping us to hold a successful season.

Thanks to all of the caddies again today and for our Club Captain, Imelda Lynch helping out to pull Jill’s bag at short notice.

Round 2 at Sandy Creek

Royal Adelaide defeated Glenelg 5-0

Eliza Bartlett def Bec Hughes 3/2
Laura Birchmore def Sam White 5/4
Fiona Morrison def Jo Rawson 6/5
Rachel Sweeney def Wendy Featherston 4/3
Kat Da Silva def Grace Ferrier 2/1

It was a tough day out for Glenelg against Royal Adelaide at Sandy Creek losing 5 – 0.

Playing at Number 5 in her first Pike Cup match Grace had an understandably nervous start going 4 down after 8 holes. Once Grace started to settle the shots started to come and she got back to square at 13, 1 up at 14 but sadly lost the next couple of holes to lose 2/1. Great grit and determination Grace.

Playing at Number 4 Wendy Featherston battled hard all day. She was 1 down after 12 and then her opponent finished with birdie, par, birdie, par to win 4/3. 

Jo Rawson playing at Number 3 didn’t have a great day losing 6/5. Jo has been playing A2 and A3 for the last 2 weeks and we really appreciate her commitment and support of the pennant teams. Enjoy the break Jo.

Sam White at number 2 also had a tough match losing 5/4. Sam too will benefit from the long weekend giving her leg some time to heal.

Bec Hughes at number 1 had a tight tussle all day. She was 1 down through 8, 2 down through 12, almost holed her tee shot on the par 3 13th and so was back to 1 down but sadly lost 15 and 16 to lose 3 and 2. A good fight Bec.

Many thanks to the caddies Hannah Brown, Cath Symons, Jim Rawson, Brian Featherston and John Ferrier for their invaluable assistance and for making the trip to Sandy Creek. 

Enjoy the long weekend break and hopefully we will bounce back with a win at home on Sunday 16th June 2024.

Bonnar Cup Report Sunday 2 June 2024

Bonnar took on the challenge of Grange at home this week and came away with a meritorious drawn match and some real confidence for the balance of the season.  Both these teams remain undefeated for 2024 and we are sure to have to confront them again in the major round and very likely the final – scheduled to be played at Glenelg.

A cool morning hit off developed into a perfect winter’s day on the well presented Grange West championship layout. 

Harry Edwards lead us out and battled hard all day to eventually succumb to a steady opponent 3&2.

Matt Jacquier also had to muster all his skill and experience to return our 1st win in the no. 6 match on the 18th – 1up. Another valuable result for Matt and the team continues his good season.

By now, we were very aware that we were in for a long day.

As for the earlier matches, David Brand and Ben Winton were in the trenches all day, never more than 2 holes up or down. Their matches went the distance and, somewhat disappointingly for both players both ended square.

After 4 matches the tie was now square and all eyes turned to the last 3 games.

Max Jericho battled hard but could not find the form needed to match his opponent in the no. 3 match finishing on the 16th 3&2 down. Max was disappointed but, as one of the hardest workers in the Pennant group, we all look forward to the second half of his season – running into some good form for the finals.

Zac Bray, is now truely running into some form, finished his match on the 14th 5&4 up. The result reflecting a strong performance returning just one bogey in his round.

At 3 matches each, all attention now went to the thrilling no.1 match where Mick Phillips produced a critical up and down on the 17th to go to the 18 1up. Unfortunately, a great “sandy” 4 from his opponent left Mick with a couple of meters down hill for the half and therefore the match. His put just missed leaving the match and the day all square.

Lots of positives can be taken from squaring a match with Grange at their home course and the group now look forward to returning to our winning ways when we take on RA at home for our next fixture on 16th June.

As always, we would like to thank caddies, Glenn Sterrey, Jason Bray, Keith Barnard, James Bridgen, Dave Rosie, Steve Jacquier and Leanne Edwards (who also came through with warm quiches for the managers) and our loyal supporters who we really appreciate.

Report for A3 Pennants 3rd June 2024 at Westlakes against Westlakes Golf Club

Glenelg squared the match against Westlakes in cloudy and freezing conditions.

Glenelg didn’t start well with four matches being down after three holes with Jo Ricourt being the only match that was one up.

Jo Rawson did not have her best day being 5 down after six holes, eventually going down 9/7 to Gail Beaumont their Club Champion.

Jo Ricourt after being 1 up after three holes was three down after nine holes to get back to 2 down after the 12th hole after holing a fifteen foot putt. Jo unfortunately lost the next two holes and halved the fifteenth hole to lose 4/3

In the meantime Wendy Vaughan had a close match on her hands being one down after nine holes. Then she won ten and eleven to be one up and then the fifteenth and sixteenth to win 3/2

Imelda Lynch was down most of the front nine and was one down after her opponent made a twenty foot putt on the ninth hole. Imelda then went to one up after twelve holes then won the fifteenth and sixteenth holes to win the match 3/2.

So both Glenelg and Westlakes had two matches each. Fiona Eblen was then left out on the course being two up after fifteen holes after sinking a 30 foot putt. However she lost the 16th and 17th holes for the match to be all square going down the 18th Hole. Both Fiona and her opponent made bogeys to square their match and thus Glenelg and Westlakes squared.

A big thank you to our caddies, Julliet Culley, Jill Gehling, Nick Eblen, Eugene Lynch (Imelda’s brother) and Wendy Featherston. It was much appreciated especially in the weather conditions.

My time as Acting Manager is over and Anna Standish returns from her holiday and will take up her role as Team Manager. I remain grateful for the opportunity to step in and support the Team in Anna’s absence and wish the Team every success for the remainder of the season.

Cleek Report Round 5

Even with a 10am start, Monday at Kooyonga was very cold so we were delighted to see a band of Glenelg supporters there to cheer on the team.

Our opponents, Blackwood, were very fortunate in that Glenelg had to give them 35 strokes in HCP matchplay. Nevertheless, our players managed to stay in all the matches throughout the day though the experienced Blackwood players were looking very dangerous in the final stages.

Julie Gobbie at number 2, played a solid game to win her match 4/2. She has had a fabulous season winning all 4 matches without reaching the 18th hole. Congratulations.

Sally Sechser at 3 had a very tight match just keeping her nose in front all day until the 18th when her opponent edged ahead to win 1 up.

Cathie Molloy’s game seesawed a bit throughout the day but she held on to square the match.

Anne Tait (number 5), playing her 1st game this season had the unenviable task of giving 10 strokes to her opponent. Anne had a very good front 9 but her opponent clawed her way back into the match to force a draw.

Number 1, Frances McPherson, had a very tight match against a very experienced player and, of course the match finished on the 18th hole. Frances was unaware that her match would decide the outcome of the day. She was square after 17 holes but she played a great last hole and sank an 8 foot putt to par the hole, win her game and win the match for Glenelg 3/2. Very exciting.

Congratulations to all our players. It was a fabulous team effort and thanks once again to our hard working caddies and to our supporters.
