Simpson Cup Round 5 at The Grange (west – 10th tee)

Glenelg 6 def Thaxted Park 1  

  1. Kade Bryant def Josh Dash 6/4
  2. Harry Burner def Ben Pearce 1 up
  3. Michael Munn def Lachlan Oakes 4/2
  4. Josh Hayes lost to Jamie Trezise 2 down
  5. Zac Bray def Matt Rolton 7/6
  6. Jack Leonard def Lachlan Dash 2 up
  7. Nick Wake def Matt Hey 6/4

Another strong result for us at Grange that consolidates our position at the top of the ladder.  Around the halfway mark we were just in front but the outcome was far from certain.  However, as with the last match 2 weeks ago, all players put together strong back nines to record an excellent 6-1 win.  It also improves our individual matches tally which would be important in the event of a countback if necessary at the end of the minor round.

Nick Wake got things off to a steady start to be 1 up after 7 holes.  From there he put the foot down to win five of the next 7 holes for our first point of the day.

Jack Leonard had a battle on his hands against fellow youngster Lachlan Dash.  Jack was 1 up after 8 holes but after the 13th he found himself 2 down with holes rapidly running out.  He then sparked into action winning the next 3 holes to take a 1 hole lead to the short par 3 17th.  That was halved and a par on the last was good enough for a 2 hole victory.

Zac Bray came back into the team to replace Jack Tanner who has returned to the US to pursue a professional career.  Zac wasted no time in putting his opponent on the back foot early by winning the first 3 holes.  He never let up on the pressure and after 10 holes he was 7 up which was the margin when the match finished on the 12th.

Josh Hayes was in one of the closest matches of the day against Jamie Trezise.  Josh won the first and there was never more than 1 hole in it all day.  After 17 holes Josh was one down going to the last needing to win the hole for a half.  Josh bombed a perfect drive straight down the middle leaving just 90m to the green.  His opponent would have been 60m back and he hit his approach into the left hand bunker.  Josh hit an excellent wedge to about 8 feet setting up a good look at birdie.  However, not to be outdone, Jamie holed his bunker shot meaning that Josh could no longer win the hole with no need to attempt the birdie putt.  An unfortunate result for Josh where a half looked to be on the cards before fate stepped in!

Michael Munn got off to a hot start to be 3 up through 4 holes playing his usual steady golf. At the turn the margin was back to one but on the back nine Michael took the upper hand getting the margin back out to 3 after 13 holes and closing the match out on the 16th.

Harry Burner and his opponent Ben Pearce were in an epic battle all day.  The first two holes were halved and then Ben won the next two.  Harry hit back to win the next 3 holes and go 1 up after 7.  He slipped to 1 down after 10 holes and that remained the margin after the 15th.  Harry then won 16 and 17 to take a valuable one hole lead to the 18th tee.  Harry hit a great drive and both players were on the green in regulation.  Harry just missed his birdie as did his opponent giving Harry a well-deserved win against a quality opponent.  

In the no. 1 match Kade Bryant went about business in his usual professional manner against Josh Dash.  The match was close on the front nine with Kade 1 up after 7 holes but then Kade really found his groove on the back nine.  He won the first 5 holes on the back to quickly close out a very strong 6/4 win.

Thanks to the caddies and our loyal band of supporters who came out on a perfect winter’s day to support us.

With two minor round matches to go we now hold a 1.5 point lead at the top of the table over 4 teams who are tied for second.  Next week we take on third placed Grange at Royal Adelaide.

Glenelg were defeated by a very strong RAGC team on Sunday 16/6/24 at South Lakes.

Christine Trimmer played a very talented opponent and despite producing her usual excellent match play skills, she just fell short of a win, losing 3/1.

Zoe Manton played her good friend and tried hard all day eventually losing 2 down.

Bec Hardy also remained steady and calm, producing some moments of great golfing skills, but could not get over the line today.

Jill Hodge played good golf but her opponent had a few more episodes of luck and some long putts sinking before finally going down.

It was so lovely to welcome Tonia Ross to the team and she started off playing very well but could not produce a win despite trying hard all day.

Thanks again to our wonderful caddies who supported the girls.

We look forward to the next 2 weeks and getting some more wins.

We welcomed Louise Pike back to the team and she did not let us down winning 7/6. I am reliably informed by her caddy that Lou’s ball striking and overall play was outstanding. It’s good to have you back Lou.

Sam White played good steady golf all day and had a good win 3/1. Well done Sam.

Bec Hughes had a battle on her hands from the beginning against a very tough opponent who began her round with birdie, birdie, par, birdie. Bec battled hard but lost 6/5.

Thanks again to the caddies for their invaluable assistance and many thanks to the supporters who came out to watch and cheer on the team.

Bonnar Cup Report

Sunday 16 June 2024

The Bonnar boys took on a much strengthened RA at home this week.

An early and very cold 7:30 start slowly warmed to a perfect morning for golf on a shortened, 16 hole format.

So, as the steam drifted off the lake on the 1st, we welcomed the in form junior Kyle Feltus to the group sending him out at no.7. Kyle immediately knew it was game on with a very experienced opponent. After battling hard all day he eventually went down 3&2 while showing plenty in his first-up performance.

Enter Anthony Wang and Harry Edwards at no’s. 6 & 5. It was clear from the outset that both these lads had come to play. Facing highly credentialed opponents they both turned in great performances to give us 2 well deserved wins – both returning 3&2 victories.

Matt Jacquier also faced a tough opponent going 2 up at one stage with 2 birdies but eventually losing 3&2 as his opponent also produced a number of birdies to get the job done in a very high quality Bonnar match.

Evergreen Ben Winton was up early, then held his nerve to return a valuable 2&1 victory on 14.

Max Jericho, facing another seasoned opponent, found the going tough, finally loosing 5&4 in a score line that did not reflect the nature of the contest.

The round now stood at 3 matches all.  Mick Phillips was in a real scrap @ no.1 and a great up and down on 14 ensured the match was all square as they walked to the 18th tee. With everything up for grabs RA appeared to loose his drive right into the second lake and Mick set up a potential win with a towering drive over the left hand bunkering. Unfortunately, trees had kept the RA ball dry and a well struck second rolled onto the front right of the green 4 meters from the pin. A well struck birdie putt then meant that Mick had to hole out from the right hand bunker to tie the match. It was not to be and the match and the day was won by RA with the narrowest of margins.

Having tied with Grange last week and now succumbed to a very strong RA on Sunday, we remain on top of the ladder – on a count back from Grange. We play Thaxted Park and TTG in the final two minor round ties and hope to maintain this position.

As always, we would like to thank caddies, Glenn Sterrey, Keith Barnard, Dave Rosie, Steve Jacquier, Leanne Edwards (who again came through with warm quiches for the managers) and Bob Lisle, Ruth Martin for the rocky road and Jill Hodge for the muffins. Our loyal band of supporters are also really appreciate.

This week seen us playing Kooyonga on their home ground.

This was my the first time managing the Sharp Cup Team and would like to thank all our players for making my job easy.

Well done guys on securing back to back wins finishing up 3&2.

The captain was Indie Danger who got off to a slow start, not being able to find the fairway with his driver and being down by 2 after 9, however rallied on the back 9 to come back and win his game 2&1.

Jonny Peers played in the number 2 spot and held a 5 up lead through 9, maintaining his lead winning 5&4.

Jayneil Rudrappagri playing in the number 3 spot held the game square through 9, unfortunately not quite getting over the line in a close game going down by 1 hole.

Campbell Hossack was in the number 4 spot. He had a tough day after being down by 5 through 9 and was not able to peg back his opponent unfortunately going down 4&3.

Cooper Lessue played in the number 5 spot moving up from Div 2. He kept his good form going with a 2&1 win.

Once again our players represented Glenelg Golf Club to the highest standards, well done.

This week we played Mid North at Kooyonga with a must win game to keep us in the finals hunt. Happy to report that we have kept the winning streak going with a 3.5/1.5 win.

Levi Ashton was team captain this week. He was 5 up through 5 holes but a fast finishing Kobe from Mid North seen that lead cut back. In the end Levi managed to hold the match to a squared game.

Jayden McGrath played in the number 2 spot.  After being down 4 with 9 to play, he chipped in out of the bunker on the 2nd and won the 3rd to get it back to 2 down, however unfortunately wasn’t able to get the win and finished down 2&1.

Adele Wang played in the number 3 spot. After a slow start from 2 down after 5, she found her form by the 9th to be 1 up keeping the pressure on with some awesome short game skills to get the job done winning 3&2.

Gareth Thien played in the number 4 spot in a thrilling tug of war.  First he was up by 2 through 5, then down by 2 through 9, then up again by 1 through 13 and ended up winning his match 2&1 to secure the team win.

Damia Muadz was in the number 5 spot and got a 10/8 win due to a forfeit game from Mid North, so she played a round with our reserve, Mia Chinner.  

I would like to thank all the players and partners for helping caddy and supporting the team through out the season thus far. 

You all do an excellent job representing the GLENELG GOLF CLUB.

A3 Pennant Report – June 17

This week, the A3s played against top team The Vines at North Adelaide.

There was a late change to the team line up with Tonia Ross coming in for Jo Ricourt who was out with illness.

We had another thrilling finish with results coming down to the 18th hole for our last two matches on course.

Wendy Vaughan at number five got off to a flying start and dominated right throughout her match.  Up 5 holes at the turn she then extended to be 6 up after 12 holes before giving one back on the 13th.  She ultimately won her match 5/4 for our first point. Our star performer of the day!

Imelda Lynch played at number four and got off to a strong start to be two up after the first few holes. Unfortunately, her opponent then turned on some stellar golf and won three holes in a row to take a one-hole lead at the turn.  Imelda fought hard to stay in it but finally succumbed to lose her match 5/4.

Tonia Ross played at number one and was up against the Vines’ in form number one player who had yet to be defeated in the season.  Tonia who had played in a tough A1 match the day before, found herself 2 down after 3 holes but played steady golf for the remaining front 9 to stay 2 down at the turn.  The back nine did not start well with Tonia losing the first three holes which unfortunately gave her opponent the momentum to take the match 5/4.

With the team down 2 matches to 1, it was up to Jill McDonald and Fiona Eblen who were still out on course in very tight battles to try and bring us the points.

Jill playing at number three was one or two down for most of the front nine and through the first few holes on the back.  After 13, she was 2 down but then fought back to win the 14th and 15th holes and bring the match back to square.  A win on the 17th and she was one up going down the 18th.  A wayward shot and some tree trouble lost her the 18th hole however a good result in the end to halve the match.  Well played Jill!

Fiona Eblen at number two played her usual steady golf against a tough opponent.  Her match hovered around square right through to the 16th hole.  Fiona lost the 16th to be one down going down the 18th.  A great approach shot to the elevated green and Fiona was able to win the hole and halve her match.  A great battle!

Unfortunately, the team came up short to lose the overall match 3-2.  We currently sit 3rd on the ladder ahead of our final minor round match next week against Blackwood at Glenelg.

A big thank you to our caddies for the round – Rebecca Hughes, Louise Pike, Jill Gehling, Wendy Featherston and Oscar Vaughan. 

Anna Standish

With Glenelg in 2nd position on the Premiership ladder and Westwood Ho in 3rd , our match against Westward Ho was always going to be a difficult one.

Unfortunately, we were drawn to play them on their home course and though all our players fought valiantly and were in close contact with their opponents for the whole day, we were not able to claim the win.

Once again, 4 matches went to the 18th hole with Sally Sechser finishing square and the other 3 matches resulting in a loss. Our match of the day goes to Frances Macpherson with a fine win on the 17th hole.

Thank you to all the team for your efforts today (we came so close) and to our wonderful group of caddies.

We are still holding 2nd place on the Premiership ladder and with only one more match before finals, we shall be striving for a strong finish next week.
