VSGCC_200_logo.jpg  

The First Qualifier for the 2008 VSGCC was played at Growling Frog on Sunday July 13. The event was hotly contested with nine handsome teams representing six social golf clubs all slugging it out in testing conditions at The Frog on a chilly Sunday morning. The event featured a swag of great prizes totalling over $1600, including in-store vouchers from The Golf Clearance OutletVision golf balls powered by Fantom and great vino from Heathcote Winery. Thanks also to the  Hawthorn Suites & 13th Beach Golf Links for their contribution to the overall prizes and bwired online solutions for their assistance in developing the event website that will be launched very soon. In addition, we are grateful for assistance from Golf Development Performance Services (GDPS) and our media partners Inside Social Golf magazine and Hacker golf magazine for their support of the championships.

Results

The results were very close for the teams vying for a podium finish and on the cut line to make the championship final. Third and fourth place and seventh and eighth place were equal and could not be separated with the tie-breaker fourth score, so these places were determined by a countback by totalling the score for all four players on each team for the back nine. Fifth and sixth place were also equal, but were easily separated with the Brumby Spikes team only fronting with three players, so their 4th tie-breaker score was zero. Out in front, the BRG Cpt. Melvilles bolted away with three of their players posting three of the best four scores for the day.

Event Information

The event is a chance for teams representing social golf clubs to compete for the Victorian Championship and over $11,000 in prizes. Teams of four players will compete in regional qualifiers and the leading seven teams from each qualifier will meet in the final to compete for the 2008 Social Golf Club State Championship. With the support of The Victorian Golf Association, Women's Golf Victoria and  Golf Australia, Bushranger Golf has partnered with five of Victoria's premier public access golf courses to develop a state championship  for golfers who are members of social golf clubs that is officially sanctioned by the games governing amateur bodies. The five foundation courses are:

    The_Dunes_70.bmp       WV small Split Logo_1.jpg      Growling_Frog_62.jpg     Eynesbury_61.bmp

    Each year, one of the foundation courses will host the final and the other four will each host one qualifying round. The venue for the final will rotate annually among the foundation courses and additional courses may host qualifying rounds in the future.
