Each Grade winners, Weekend Ladies, Junior and Senior winners


Three rounds into the championship, Jake and James were level on 206 each, so the title hung in the balance of the final round performance!
After the front nine, James (on scratch) had fired a one under 33 to turn just one stroke ahead of last year's champ Jake, who plays off +1. However, James held his nerve to finish with a one over 69, while the usually consistent Jake stumbled to a final 73.
Peter Rogers picked up the A Grade Best Nett with a total of 278, just one stroke clear of Jackson McCormack. 
The battle for the B Grade title was a to and fro affair, between Peter Simpson and the eventual winner, Pat. After the first round, Pat was 14 behind, then picked up 11 shots in round 2, to be just 3 shots adrift. Then it was Peter's turn, surging ahead to start the last round 9 shots ahead of his nearest rival for the title!
The final round usually tests players out, and this time, Pat recovered from a disastrous start (couple of doubles!) to complete the round with a creditable 81, while Peter succumbed to the final round curse, firing his worst round of the four, a 91, to hand Pat the B Grade title by one shot!
But a consolation for Peter as he picked up the best net trophy with 283, four ahead of Andrew Hasted. 
Barry consolidated his C Grade Champion title from last year, to again claim the award this year. And very convincingly, as he confirmed his right to the title by being over 30 shots clear of his nearest rival. Now that is a run-away win!

Barry backed up his 2016 C Grade Champion title to win again by a street, 34 shots ahead of Sal and Jeff.
The C Grade Nett title was more closely contested. Warren Brunner carded a round net score of 69 to clinch the award in a countback, defeating two others with the same 4 round total of 293. 

Ayden battled it out with Bailey Murchie for the Junior Champion title, finishing just 3 ahead after the 72 holes.
Mickey Schimak-Orrell won the Junior Nett total with a 284.
Courtney had a comfortable win in the Weekend ladies, scoring a total of 315, finishing 40 shots ahead of her nearest lady competitor.
Di Vincent comfortably won the Ladies Nett on 288, 19 shots ahead of Kay Jenkinson. 
Arthur, on a total of 307, finished ahead of Mike Peall by 7 shots, after starting the final round with a lead of just one shot.
