Pennant Golf

Glenelg Golf Club’s #TeamGlenelg has a strong history in Junior, Men’s, Women’s and Senior Pennant Golf in South Australia having won their first cup back in 1940. 

“I think it’s fair to say we have forged a reputation as a force in Pennant Golf in SA. In other words, we are now the hunted!”

South Australia Pennant History

The Simpson Cup, named after Mr Fred N Simpson, was inaugurated in 1927 ‘…For the annual competition between several city clubs…’ Fred Simpson was a member of the family that established the Simpson white goods industry in South Australia.

The Simpson Cup was originally for competition between Kooyonga & Royal Adelaide from 1927 to 1938. Post World War 2 the Grange & Glenelg joined in the fray with the competition being modified and altered from time to time with finals and additional club teams. In 2008 Southern District and Mid-North District entered teams in the competition.

The start of Women’s Pennant has a less certain history dating back to 1929 when ‘…three wooden shields, black with silver lettering, were purchased for A, B & C Grade – cost not to exceed £2/2/- each…’

The SA Pennant Competition continues to evolve and expand in its effort to provide competition golf between clubs at the highest level. Adaption of technology such as on-line competition management and scoring has simplified administration of the Competition for all concerned.

The highlight of the current Competition is no doubt the Final where Simpson Cup & Sanderson Cup (Women’s A1) are played at one of the ‘sand-belt’ golf Clubs drawing five hundred and more spectators each year.
