CLIFTON Springs Golf Club’s veteran golfers have recorded the Club’s fifth straight victory in the Geelong District Veteran Golfers Association (GDVGA) pennant competition.
With teams representing most of the clubs around the district, games were played over seven rounds and produced semi-finals that featured Clifton Springs 1 versus Portarlington 1 and The Sands Black versus Curlewis.
In two closely fought games, Clifton Springs 1 and Curlewis were successful and met in the final played at Portarlington Golf Club on Monday April 15.
The weather turned it on in spectacular style for this time of year and with the course in good condition, considering the lack of rain over recent months, all was set fair for a titanic struggle.
That is exactly what occurred with the early matches split evenly.
The third match result saw Curlewis take the clubhouse lead with two matches still to be decided. In the end, both the players from Clifton Springs prevailed giving a victory margin of three matches to two.
The shield and flag will be presented to the winning team at the GDVGA annual general meeting in July.
Membership of the GDVGA is open to any golfer aged 55 and over, who is a member of a golf club within Geelong District.
The GDVGA plays about 15 games per year at most of the clubs in the district and the pennant competition is open to all members of the GDVGA who have played five games from the annual fixture list.
