Commonwealth, Huntingale take Vic pennants
THE 2015 Victorian pennants came to an exciting conclusion at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club last month, with Commonwealth and Huntingdale capturing the Men’s Division 1 and Women’s Division 1 titles, respectively.
Commonwealth won its second consecutive title by defeating Victoria five and a half matches to one and a half. Huntingdale surprised previously unbeaten Victoria to win its first Division 1 Pennant since 2006 and the club’s 13th Division 1 Women’s title since 1910.
A total of 28 out of the 48 competing clubs were represented in the 2015 GV Pennant across six Men’s divisions, five Women’s divisions and six Colts divisions. Contests were played at four host venues in Royal Melbourne, Southern, Patterson River and Kooringal Golf Clubs.
The 2015 finals again saw clubs with multiple teams in finals scheduled at the same venue. Of the five clubs who had the chance of taking out multiple flags, Commonwealth, Eastern and latrobe were ultimately successful with dual victories.
The 2015 Men’s Pennant Finals saw the remaining Divisions won by Royal Melbourne (Div 2); Gisborne (Div 3); Goonawarra (Div 4); Chirnside Park (Div 5) and Eastern (Div 6). Women’s Finals winners: Kingston Heath (Div 2); Riversdale (Div 3); latrobe (Div 4) and The Heritage (Div 5).
Commonwealth took out the Division 1 Colts Final for the fourth year in succession by defeating Waverley three matches to two. The remaining Colts finals winners: Metropolitan (Div 2); Heidelberg (Div 3); latrobe (Div 4); Eastern (Div 5) and Cheltenham (Div 6).
