Euroa Removalists capture 2022 Kelly Gang Shootout

Euroa Removalists capture the 2022 Kelly Gang Shootout

With one of our largest-ever fields for this event, The 2022 Kelly Gang Shootout represented a massive "bugger-off-Covid!" statement by Aussie golfers, with a whopping 52 players making a gaolbreak for The Murray River.

Intermittent bouts of wind and rain throughout the weekend did not dampen the spirits of the players, with the quality of play (both on the magnificent Rich River Golf Course, and OFF the course, i.e. in the pub) was stellar.

Congratulations to the Euroa Removalists, who blitzed the field on both Day 1 and Day 2, with super-low scores previously unseen in these parts. In true Ned Kelly fashion, when the dust (and rain) had settled, these four Bushrangers found themselves 5 shots clear of the next-best team, nabbing the trophy and the associated loot (thanks to our tremendous sponsors, including Srixon, Drummond Golf, TCN and Heathcote Winery).

Thanks, too, to the Rich River Golf Club for their wonderful hospitality. And, of course, a SPECIAL thanks to all of our players...we couldn't have a great weekend like this without you!

Overall, it was a remarkable weekend of fun and frivolity. We hope to see you all next year!

Below is the full rundown of the weekend's festivities, including the program, results and photos.

Tassie Treat: Golfers have a blast at Barnbougle & Lost Farm

2022 Tasman Classic - Barnbougle Dunes

Tassie Treat: Golfers have a blast at Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm at 2022 Tasman Classic

Fantastic weather and two spectacular golf courses provided a memorable setting for 37 SGA golfers at the 2022 Tasman Classic.

Held over 3 days on Tasmania's world-famous Barnbougle Dunes and Barnbougle Lost Farm Courses, the event was an absolute cracker. Three rounds of golf, plus some bonus holes on the brand-new Bougle Run, gave our golfers the chance to experience some of the best golf in Australia (and the world!)

The weather for the entire weekend was mint! Hardly a breath of wind, with plenty of sunshine. And while some may chalk it up to luck, the SGA management team contends that the heaps of preparation and research into scheduling may have played its part as well.

Each golfer received a dozen Srixon Balls prior to tee off, with a few noting they'd lost half of them on the first 3 holes! Most of the golfers found the rugged and challenging Barnbougle Dunes (Saturday) to be the harder of the two layouts. As a result, some very good golfers got a smack that day. Cameron "Jonesy" Jones was the exception; with four 4-pointers, Jonesy was the only one to beat his handicap.

A bonus to the weekend was the new Barnbougle Run short course, which was fantastic fun. Many of the golfers had a go over the weekend and everyone absolutely loved it. It also was a great alternative for those who were a bit sore, or who didn't want to take on a full 18 holes on Sunday.

The Tasman Classic event consisted of three rounds: Stableford on Days 1 (Farm) and 2 (Dunes), with a Par round on Day 3 (Farm).  An Order of Merit system awarded points for each of the three rounds depening on placement.

Well done to Glen McMillan and Richard Knowles on winning A and B grade respectively.

Overall, it was an outstanding result, and we look forward to seeing you all next year!

Team North takes epic 2022 TMMP by a point

2022 Trans-Murray Matchplay

Team North captures epic 2022 Trans-Murray Matchplay by one point

trans-murray match play

It was a thrilling week of golf for the 2022 Trans-Murray Matchplay, Jan 15-18, 2022. 64 golfers from both sides of the Murray River returned to Canberra to represent their region, and battle for victory (and the all-important “bragging rights”).

There was some incredible competition, great sportsmanship, and some truly awesome camaraderie throughout the week.

Day 1

The First day's action (Pairs/Ambrose, held at the magnificent Royal Canberra GC) saw Team North in the lead, capturing 9 points to Team South's 7. It was a wild day, as the lead changed hands multiple times. Day 1 score: North 9, South 7.

TMMP_Day1

Day 2

For Day 2, (Pairs/ Alternate-Shot/Foursomes) at the picturesque Federal Golf Club, Team South clawed their way back by one point, courtesy of some strong play throughout. Day 2 score: North 16.5, South 15.5.

TMMP_Day2

Day 2's action was punctuated by a Hole-in-One by Team North's Noel Frogley, who aced the difficult (and long) par-3 12th hole. Congratulations, Noel! (See photos in the Day 2 Gallery)

Day 3

There was electricity in the air for the Singles matches on Day 3, at the lovely Gungahlin Lakes Golf Course. The scoring was tight, and both teams were feeling the pressure.

Following the round, the points were tallied (and re-tallied, and re-re-tallied ... it was THAT close), and when the Day's leaderboard was finalised, it showed a Tie for the day - 16 points each, and thus a victory to Team North by a SINGLE POINT, via a margin of 36.5 points to 35.5 points.

Congratulations to Team North!!

Final points leaderboard

Team D1 D2 D3 Total Points
North 9.00 7.50 16.00 32.50
South 7.00 8.50 16.00 31.50

Special Thanks

We would like to thank all the competitors (and their spouses/partners/plus-ones) for an incredible week. The success of these events is mostly due to the quality of the participants, and we believe that our golfers are of the highest quality anywhere!

A very special thanks to our sponsors Srixon Australia & New Zealand, Garmin and our hotel partner, Mantra on Northbourne.
