2018 TMMP Results

2018 Trans-Murray Match Play

The fifth annual Trans-Murray Match Play was held in the beautiful Hunter Valley from the 2nd to the 4th of February 2018. Best known for it’s wine culture, the Hunter Valley is also home to some magnificent golf resorts and the three golf courses chosen for the TMMP are among the best in the State. Played at The Vintage Golf Resort, Hunter Valley Golf & Country Club and Cypress Lakes Golf & Country Club, the two teams of 25 players representing North & South of the Murray River lined up for a 3-day Ryder Cup-style match-play showdown. Below we see the two teams in their TMMP uniforms before the deciding singles matches on Day 3 at Cypress Lakes.


 

2018 TMMP Results - South 30 def North 21

The 2018 TMMP kicked off at the superb Vintage Golf Resort on Friday February 2 playing Two-Ball Ambrose matchplay. After the first day, Team South jumped to a five match lead with the ambrose matches going the way of the Mexicans 9-4. Team North hit back on Day 2 at Hunter Valley Golf & Country Club with a 7 – 6 result closing the gap to just 4 matches heading into Sunday’s singles matches. The final days play at Cypress Lakes Golf & Country Club was tight all the way, with both teams having the ascendency at different times, but a number of close results fell the way of Team South to see them take the singles matches 10-5 to extend the final margin to 30-21.

As we expect at SGA, the matches were played in a great spirit of camaraderie and sportsmanship across the whole weekend. This event, by its nature, invokes a rivalry that encourages a sense of tribalism at times, however the fun, friendships, camaraderie and enjoyable competition are what SGA stands for and what makes our tournaments fun to be a part of. It was a testament to the character of the players from both teams that this event was played in such a great spirit over the three days.
