Exciting 3-team playoff decides 2021 WBC Champs

Unprecedented three-team playoff decides the 2021 WBC Champions

December 4-5, 2021

A massive, unprecedented three-team sudden-death playoff provided a fitting end to a massive week of golf and fun at the 2021 William Buckley Classic.

Played at 13th Beach Golf Links on Victoria's Bellarine Peninsula, the 16th running of the WBC was contested under mostly clear skies, with occasional bouts of the area's notorious "3-club" winds making an appearance on Saturday.

Day 1 ("The Ambush") saw our 16 teams of Bushrangers tee it up at the world-famous Beach Course, which has hosted the Victorian Open for many years. Our two-person Ambrose teams (which were all feeling a bit shaky following Friday evening's festivities) battled the wind as they scrambled for a spot on the leaderboard. When the final putt was drained after day one,  three teams found themselves tied at the top on 40 points, with 5 other teams within reach.

Day 2 ("The Assault") proved a much calmer, but no less exciting, affair. Played on the Creek Course, our teams (which were now feeling the full effects of two full nights of the post-golf festivities) worked their way around the beautiful course.  As always with our Majors, the tee sheets were a seeded draw, meaning that the last-placed teams teed off first, while the leaders teed off last.

As the final few teams were playing their 17th/18th holes, a quick check of the online leaderboard showed that this race was going to be close. When the final putts were holed, and the scorecards tallied (and re-tallied) it became apparent that an unprecedented sudden-death playoff would be required!

PLAYOFF!

The first-ever play-off in WBC history featured drama, action and good-natured fun. Three teams took the stage in Alternate-shot (Foursomes) action as the gallery watched on.

The first two teams, Jason Pratt & Joe Amenta (The Barwon Heads Sir Robins), along with Gavan Doran & Dean Connell (The Torquay Hookers) teed off on the first hole of the Creek Course. Meanwhile, a third team, Kirk Hayward and Travis Graham (The Point Addis Bashers) -- who had unknowingly (due to a scoring glitch) also qualified for the playoff -- had rushed back to their car to get their gear, shoes, etc. 

A double-bogey 6 from the Torquay Hookers saw them eliminated by the Sir Robins' bogey-5. Meanwhile, a MASSIVE tee shot by Kirk Hayward set the Bashers up for success, followed by a stunning chip by Travis Graham to 6 inches to seal their birdie and the win!

See below for the video, plus team scores and photo gallery.

Thanks to all who played - it was an exciting and memorable weekend of fun!

The 6420-metre par 72 Championship layout opened in 1999 and rapidly developed a reputation as the best golf course on the Gold Coast. The facility features superb playing surfaces with greens that are unique on the Gold Coast. The greens are a type of “Creeping bent grass” that ensure a superior putting surface all year round. The Glades is on 65 hectares of land with a total of 98 bunkers. Norman not only had a vision to create a challenging golf course on the Gold Coast, but he also retained 9 hectares of wetland area to create a natural wildlife sanctuary within the course.

Palm Meadows
ROUND 4. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15

Palm Meadows

Palm Meadows was the first golf resort course on the Gold Coast, and pioneered the Australian resort golfing boom. The challenging 350-hectare par 72 course was designed by renowned course-designer Graham Marsh. It measures 6319 metres off the championship tees and the opening and closing holes are rated among the greatest in Australian golf. Water comes into play on 14 holes and there are 82 sand bunkers around the course.

2021 SGA Championships Accommodation Options

Event entry is structured so that the golf event package is separate from the accommodation booking. This allows entrants flexibility and choice...you can choose the accommodation option that suits you.

Mantra Legends Hotel Pool

Mantra Group - Hotels and Apartments

The 2021 SGA Championships features our partnership with The Mantra Group to make the luxurious Mantra Legends Hotel, Mantra Circle on Cavill and Mantra Towers of Chevron our home bases with our accommodation partner for the 2021 tournament.

TRAVEL RESOURCE

Still deciding which way to fly? Before you book, check out our article: Chartered vs Commercial: Which is (really) the better deal?

Air Travel to The Barn & The Farm

There are two recommended travel options:

OPTION 1: Vortex Air charter flights with SGA from Moorabbin or Essendon

SGA have chartered return flights with our partner Vortex Air from both Moorabbin and Essendon Airports.  These can seat up to eight people on each flight, take less than an hour's flight time, and land right next to the course.

(As SGA is carrying the risk of empty seats on the planes, to reserve your place on a charter flight, please pay a $300 deposit to SGA by three months prior to the event and the balance of the payment by two months prior with your event entry payment. Cancellations of flight bookings will receive a refund of the deposit only if we have no empty seats on planes – if we have empty seats, any cancellations will not receive a refund as those monies will offset SGA’s incurred costs of empty seats on the charter flights.)

OPTION 2: Commercial flights

Commercial flights from around Australia fly in to Launceston which is a one-hour drive from Barnbougle. Car hire is available at the airport and there is a bus that regularly transfers golfers from Launceston airport to Barnbougle Dunes. There are Travel Directions and Airport Transfers pages with info on the Barnbougle website.

2022 Trans-Murray Matchplay

Trans-Murray Matchplay - Royal Canberra

The 2022 Trans-Murray Match Play

Canberra - Jan 13-15, 2022

trans-murray match play

A major annual highlight on the calendar for many of our golfers, the SGA 2022 Trans-Murray Match Play event is ready for action!

SGA golfers will return to Canberra for the 2022 event, our annual Ryder Cup-style tournament between teams of SGA  golfers representing regions North & South of the Murray River.

After the very popular trip to the Nation’s capital in 2021, our golfers overwhelmingly requested we return to the ACT. Just a short three-hour drive from Sydney, and six hours from Melbourne, Canberra has everything our golfers love in an event location: World-class golf courses, high-quality accommodation, and an abundance of after-golf activities and festivities!

This year’s event will see our teams do battle on three superb layouts: Royal Canberra GC, Federal GC and Gungahlin Lakes G&CC.

The 2022 Trans-Murray Match Play Tees off in:

The Courses

Royal Canberra

Royal Canberra

Gary Player called it "The Most Beautiful Course in Australia". And his point is hard to argue. A picturesque setting, with some truly world-class golf awaits all who are lucky enough to tread the fairways of Royal Canberra. Set amidst the magnificent Westbourne Woods arboretum, Royal Canberra offers world class facilities and a 27 hole Championship course.

Federal

Federal GC

The 18 hole championship course features pristine Santa Ana couch fairways and quality bent grass greens which are protected by well-placed bunkers. The bushland setting features grand views of the Brindabella Ranges, contributing to the special place that is Federal Golf Course. The course has featured in the Golf Digest Top 100 Australian Courses, with a current ranking of 48 in Golf Australia’s best public access courses.

Trans Murray Match Play - 2021 Gungahlin Lakes

Gungahlin Lakes

Gungahlin Lakes Golf Course is an 18-hole championship course characterised by its lakes, creeks and water carries. Whether it be the water, dogleg fairways or bunkers, each hole has its own unique challenge in getting to the large bent grass greens. The course layout provides an enjoyable yet testing round for all players, rewarding those that approach it strategically. And it provides a fitting challenge for the final round of our event!
