Bannockburn Golf Club News

Although conditions have  been very wintery there has been many golf highlights for the month.

Long-time member Murray Satchell has been the most consistent golfer during the month winning the John Sexton Shield with an impressive 43 points and also winning another Saturday and a mid-week event. 

There was a tie for the Men’s monthly medal between Greg Leach and Andrew Scott who will play off for the medal. The Ladies have been bit unfortunate with the weather with some events postponed however Sue Moosbrugger won the monthly medal with 73 net on 20th July and Heather Prince winning the Quarterly medal with 27 points.

Congratulations to Marty Pfarrer who won the Singles Knockout match play event that has been running over the last few weeks. It was reported Marty played inspired golf in the final beating runner up Bert Moritz who had no answer to Marty’s play.

The Golf Club has recently been fortunate in receiving a Community Grant of $4869 from the Golden Plains Shire Council to help the club to build a Sail Shade and Synthetic Grass seating area outside the Clubhouse. Work has already begun on this project so it will be ready for Sand Greens Championships. We thank the Council for their support for this project, and congratulate all the other organisations who also received grants.

The Victorian Men’s and Women’s Sand Greens Championships is being hosted by the Bannockburn Golf Club and will be held from September 7th to 11th 2016. Entries are open for these events now and it will be exciting time for the club to showcase the course to the many visiting golfers. 

The Victorian Junior Sand Green Championships is planned to be hosted by the Club on 20th August 2016.

To anyone new to golf, having a break from golf, or experienced golfers who are interested in joining a relaxed inclusive Golf Club with tree lined fairways available 7 days a week you can contact the club via the website at or to the Club Secretary on 0417 329 764.
