Bannockburn Golf Club News


For the third time in 3 months, a Bannockburn Golf Club member has had a ‘Hole-in-One’. Congratulations to our Vice President, Col Gillett on hitting his 2nd ‘Hole-in-One’ on the 2nd (the Quarry) Hole at Winchelsea Golf Club during the Winchelsea Open Tournament.


The Bannockburn Golf Club members put on a brilliant display of quality golf at the Beeac Open Tournament this month. Congratulations to Eileen Lynch who won the Ladies’ A Grade Nett division. Congratulations also go to Aubrey Joyce on winning the Men’s B Grade division, in a play-off with fellow Bannockburn member Andrew Scott. Greg Leach won the 27 Hole Nett event, Andrew Green won the 18 Hole Nett event, Andrew Scott won the 9 Hole pm event and Bannockburn won the men’s Teams event on Saturday.

Other highlights for this month include the June Monthly Medal winners of Len Bagley with a superb +5 for the Men, and Alison Pfarrer with a -3 (played in very wintery conditions) for the Women. Our Ladies’ President, June Peterson will be representing the Bannockburn Golf Club at the SWDLGA “Rene Austin Brooch Event”, played at the Curlewis Golf Club in November.

It was wonderful to see our Clubhouse filled with happy and excited beginner golfers throughout June. Thanks to the hard work of Pam Graham and Sue Moosbrugger, we held 5 Ladies’ Golf Clinics with ALPG Professional Vicky Thomas. We had 14 ladies enjoy the Ladies Clinic – 9 who were completely new to golf. Vicky, the Golf Pro at Colac Golf Club, went through the basics of the different shots played in golf with the beginners, gave lessons to some of our experienced golfers, and completed the Clinics with a very enjoyable game of Ambrose with our experienced ladies partnering our beginner golfers.

The Bannockburn Golf Club will be hosting the Women’s and Men’s Victorian Sand Greens Championships from September 7th through to September 11th, 2016. The entries for these events our now open, and the Entry forms are available at www.golfvic.org.au . 

With approximately 200 golfers expected to play ‘The Somerset Estate Bannockburn’ 2016 Victorian Sand Greens Championships in the second week of September, it will be an extraordinary opportunity to showcase our magnificent Golf Course, the Bannockburn Township and our neighbouring communities. 

Upcoming events in July include The John Sexton Shield, the final of the “Single’s Knockout” and the July Monthly Medal for the men, and the Wallace-Lynch Trophy, the Saturday Quarterly Medal, and the July Monthly Medal for the women.
