The eighth William Buckley Classic was held over the weekend of Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th of October 2013. The venue was the Beach Course at the superb 13th Beach Golf Links in Barwon Heads and The Sands Torquay Golf Course, just a spear chuck away from one of Buckley's regular homes on the banks of Bream Creek.

The accommodation was on-course at the luxurious Peppers Resort at The Sands Torquay and the format was 2-ball ambrose stableford over 36 challenging holes of golf. Below we see the 2013 William Buckley Classic champions, Gavan Doran & Neil Hocking, posing down with The Murrangurk Perpetual Trophy after the presentation ceremony.

The tournament was contested in great spirit and featured a couple of super tough golf courses in top condition. The competition was just as tight as previous years with another very tight finish and just three shots separating the top five teams. The title was still on the line right down to the last putt on the final hole with a big bunch chasing the leaders and trying to reel them in. In the finish, there was a one-shot margin as we have had so many times in the WBC. When the dust had settled and the scorer had set down his abacus, it was Hocks & The Rose who took out the title in a thrilling finish after they nailed the winning putt from four feet on the final hole. It was a joyous celebration for the pair clinching the title for the first time in many attempts after having teamed up in the very first WBC in 2006. The final placings were:
