Group_shot.jpg

The 2012 Tour Championship for the Victorian SGA Tour was held at Victoria Golf Club with players competing for trophies and prizes valued at over $4000. Thanks to Social Golf Australia sponsors Wilson Staff, Drummond GolfHeathcote Winery and bwired and our 2012 Tour Championship sponsors Wurth AustraliaCan you have a look at my Garden, Neil Hocking & Associates Engineering and Lush Landscape Creations. Above we see some of the field saluting on the huge putting green outside the clubhouse at Victoria after tuning up the flat-sticks before the shotgun start. Below we see Campbell Wilson from bwired winding up for his opening tee shot on the famous first tee at Victoria.

There were two separate events held on the day: The Tour Championship (single stableford) was contested by the Top 25 Players in the 2012 SGA Tour 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 testing conditions on a day with bright sunshine and a maximum temperature of 34 degrees that tested most of the field. Below we see Shane Morris from the UFA playing a long recovery shot from behind the first tee after taking a pot shot at the green of the short par four opener.

Victoria was beautifully presented and supplied a stern test of golf with just two handicapped players managing to better nett 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 hosted The 2011 Australian Masters. There was a great contest in both events with countbacks required to decide the prize winners. Below left we see the group of John MooreDavid Puddefoot, Ben Komala and Darryl Puddefoot (all from Brunswick SGC) navigating their way around the green of the par five 18th hole in front of the superb clubhouse.
