The 12th William Buckley Classic was held over the weekend of Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of October 2017. The venue was the superb 36-hole 13th Beach Golf Links playing The Beach Course on Saturday and The Creek Course on Sunday. Both golf courses are just a spear chuck away from one of Buckley's regular homes on the banks of Bream Creek near Barwon Heads.

The accommodation was on-course at the luxurious Barwon Heads Resort and the format was 2-ball ambrose stableford over 36 challenging holes of golf. Below we see the 2017 William Buckley Classic champions, Paul Benson & John Coleman, posing down at 13th Beach with The Murrangurk Perpetual Trophy after the presentation ceremony.

The tournament was contested in great spirit and was once again an awesome test of golf on some super courses. On the first day, Paul Benson & John Coleman tore the Beach Course to pieces with a brilliant display of ball-striking and great scoring to jump out to a huge lead. On the second day the swoopers came with 13 of the 16 teams scoring under par. The leaders, however, held on grimly early and then scored well over the closing holes to post 41 and cruise over the line for a four-shot victory. The final placings were:
