In the women’s sec­tion Kim Mor­ris of Shep­par­ton Golf Club won with a 79 scratch score ahead of Rowena Wal­lace from Co­bram-Ba­rooga (84).

In the men’s sec­tion it was a much tighter con­test in which Matt Miller from Hill Top Tatura took the hon­ours with a four-un­der 68 to just de­feat Caleb Bo­valina from Tocumwal on 69.

Miller started ea­gle-birdie for the first two holes to set up his great round while Bo­valina coun­tered with his own ea­gle on the back nine.

It was cer­tainly a com­pe­ti­tion for the young guns.

For the ju­nior cham­pi­onship Blair Christie of Rich River re­turned a scratch score of 77 to win, with Bai­ley Goodall of Shep­par­ton win­ning the net event with 73.

In the hand­i­cap events for the guests Marie Brown from Shep­par­ton with 75 net won ahead of Karen Fitzger­ald of Rich River on 78.

Marie Brown, Rowena Wal­lace and Matt Miller (two) took home the near­est the pin prizes.

In the pure cham­pi­ons teams event the Co­bram-Ba­rooga team of Rowena and Mar­garet Wal­lace and Chris Tom­lin­son and Ni­cholas Giles won with a com­bined net score of 308.

A spe­cial high­light of this team was the three gen­er­a­tion fam­ily con­nec­tion of grand­mother, mother, son of Mar­garet, Rowena, Chris.
