Update from Golf Australia
Operations advice – Regional Victoria
Due to the seven day extension of the lockdown in Victoria, the course will be closed until 11:59pm Tuesday 27 July 2021.
Sunny and windy conditions greeted 18 players today for the final round of the Men's Championships and the August Monthly Medal.
It must have been harder going out there as the conditions suggested as the best score was two over handicap.
Graeme Cordy continued his good form winning the Medal with 84/14/70, Jarryd Pritchard was runner up with 77/5/72 on a countback from Jamie Dolny 88/16/72.
There were four players tied on 74 nett so they all got a ball, and they were Dave Atkins (28), Andy Croome (15), Vaughan Saunders (4) and Zane Howard (20).
Not one nearest the pin went off, hence rewarding average scores in the comp with a ball.
The semi finals were also played in the Matchplay Championships. With Jarryd Pritchard defeating Dylan Pool 1up and Dean Howard taking care of Vaughan Saunders 2/1.
Jarryd and Dean will now play off for the Matchplay Championship final.
Now to the Championships, the battle came down to the wire today in the A Grade Championships, with Dylan and Vaughan both having their worst scores today, therefore resulting in those scores not counting towards the best three of four.
After a double check of the previous rounds scores, there was a tie, regardless of Dylan thinking he had won by a shot, as he had 76 in the second round not 75 as he thought.
The order of the playoff was a three hole Aggregate event. With holes 10,11 and 18 to be played. Both players had pars on the first two holes before Dylan snap-hooked his way to a birdie on the 18th to defeat Vaughan who had a par.
A Grade results:
Dylan Pool 215 (67,76,72) won in a playoff.
Vaughan Saunders 215 (72,71,72).
Jarryd Pritchard 225 (75,77,73).
Darren Edwards 225 (78,75,72).
In the B Grade it was just a matter of having to turn up in the last round for Graeme Cordy as he was already 8 shots clear, but he consolidated his lead today to end up winning by 14 shots.
B Grade results:
Graeme Cordy 248 (81,83,84).
Dean Howard 262 (90,88,84).
Jamie Dolny 263 (87,88,88).
Andy Croome 264 (83,92,89).
Jacob Howard 266 (88,88,90).
Ryan Hayes 276 (94,87,95).
Peter Smith 279 (90,96,93).
The C Grade ended up as a close affair, after Simon Carracher charged out to a strong lead after round two. But after the third round his lead was narrowed to only two with Aaron Haw making a charge. Aaron had a round that he would rather forget today and ended up dropping down to third as Zane Howard put in a respectable last round score to in the end fall short of Simon by three shots.
C Grade results:
Simon Carracher 273 (92,85,96).
Zane Howard 276 (92,90,94).
Aaron Haw 278 (90,89,99).
Stuart McIntosh 286 (93,93,100).
Col Carmody 327 (111,105,111).
Rod Shaw 329 (105,114,110).
In the Captains trophy for the best three nett scores Vaughan Saunders (4) ended up actually tying with Graeme Cordy (15) after the captain got home and saw that Graeme's score from today was put into the Championships standings off his daily handicap not the handicap that he started the Championships with, which is what the nett result is decided on.
54 hole nett Standings.
Vaughan Saunders (4) 203 (68,67,68).
Graeme Cordy (15) 203 (66,68,69).
Dylan Pool (2) 209 (65,74,70).
Well done to all the winners and everyone who competed, with 17 players playing at least three rounds, which would be the best attended Club Championships for a long time.
Next Sunday we will take a break from the stroke and individual events with an Ambrose event scheduled. Numbers of players in each team will be decided in the day dependant on how many people turn up. ... See MoreSee Less

Final round of the Men's Club Championships tomorrow. The August Monthly Medal will also be played.
It looks like the weather gods are going to look after us, with a bit of predicted rain tonight that should clear off tomorrow morning.
It would be great to see as many out playing as possible, as we have been starved of our golfing fix for the last couple of weeks.
11:30 for 12 hit off. ... See MoreSee Less
Golf is back on.
Tomorrow 8:30 for 9am hit off. (Although the weather doesn't look promising)
Sunday will be the final round of the Men's Club Championships. 11:30 for 12 noon hit off. Also will be the August Monthly Medal.
(If the course is deemed unplayable on the day due to course condition or Weather then Sunday the 8th of August is the back up day).
It is in the best interest to get Championships finished as soon as we can, just incase the rules change (again).
See you on the course! For more fun like this. 🤣 ... See MoreSee Less
