14 December 2010 - Kingston Heath Golf Club

The 2010 Tour Championship for the Victorian SGA Tour was held at Kingston Heath Golf Club with players competing for trophies and prizes valued at over $4000. Thanks to Social Golf Australia sponsors Wilson Staff, Heathcote Winery and bwired and our Tour Championship sponsors Wilson Staff, Value Adviser Associates, Drummond Golf, Swann Communications, Annex Nesso and  Replicat. Thanks also to our special guest and new SGA Tour Ambassador, Andy Lee who joined us for a bat on the day and helped SGA Tour regular Downtown Roger Brown with presenting the trophies and prizes. Above we see players congregating outside the famous clubhouse before the shotgun start and below we see Andy Lee launching into his drive on the short par four 3rd hole.

There were two separate events held on the day: The Tour Championship (single stableford) was contested by the Top 20 Players in the 2010 Order of Merit who were in attendance and all other handicapped players contested an open single stableford event. All players attending (inc social players) were eligible to win the novelty events (2 x Long Drives and 4 x NTPs). The event was played in near perfect conditions on a day with bright sunshine, a maximum temperature of 28 degrees and a wee zephyr of breeze to cool things down and add a little challenge to some of the club selection. Below we see Liam Anderson hitting his drive from the fifth tee while in the background Neil Hocking tends the pin as Roger Brown lines up his putt on the fourth green.

Kingston Heath was beautifully presented and supplied a stern test of golf with just two handicapped players managing to better par with 37 points. The greens were true and provided great test of putting skill and nerve with more than a few players struggling to come to grips with the pace and breaks on the course that is rated by many as the best in Australia. There was a very close finish in both events with countbacks required to decide the winners and podium finishers. Below we see Niall Shearer showing some good form at the moment of truth as he tees off on the first hole.
