SGA Tour (Vic) - Club Mandalay - March 8 2015

The 5th Victorian SGA Tour event for 2015 was held at the new Club Mandalay in Beveridge with players competing for over $500 of prizes and Tour members playing for Order of Merit points. Thanks to Social Golf Australia sponsors Golf Clearance Outlet, Gifte gift cards, SrixonHeathcote Winery and bwired and the Vic Tour Event Sponsors for contributing to the prize pool for the day. Above we see SGA Tour Member Pete Solomou patrolling the green of the superb par four 4th hole under a big sky at Beveridge. Below we see Tour Member Brian Davis ripping his tee shot on the downhill par three 3rd hole.

The event featured some great weather with a mild day forecast and early fog cleared before tee off. It was mainly overcast on the first nine with no wind at all and the clouds broke up for a sunny second half to the round. Mandalay was beautifully presented with superb playing surfaces and a great layout of golf holes that drew widespread praise for this exciting new Peter Thomson-designed golf course that does not officially open until July or August this year when the clubhouse will be completed. Below we see new Tour player Jovan Selvaratnam showing his technique with the flatstick as he rolls a long approach putt.

In the finish, the benign conditions saw some great scores with the first 19 players in the field breaking their handicaps. Tour member Robert Schreiner took the bikkies on countback from Colin King after both scored a superb 44 points ahead of Olga Tozer on 43 and a big group on 42: Ketut Sama, Chris Culph, Matt Shotton, Kervin Uy and John Williams in 4th to 8th places respectively. Behind them there was a logjam with just five shots separating the next 18 players in the field. Below we see David Puddefoot playing a superb bunker shot as he throws his ball high and straight at the pin on the par three 3rd hole.

Note that for the Order of Merit there are no countbacks and Tour members tied on the same score each receive the same OOM points. A player needs to join as a Member of the SGA Tour before receiving OOM points at an event. For info on Tour Membership, see the About the Tour page. Below we see Tour Member Paul Himarios winding up for his tee shot on the par three 3rd hole and in the bottom photo we see Tour Member Pete Solomou ripping his tee shot under blue skies on the par four 5th hole at Mandalay.
