A Grade Pennants - Finalists Decided after Round 5

Round 5 and the last round of the 2019 A Grade Pennants was played on Sunday March 3

Charlestown GC hosted Round 1 in weather perfect for golf.

Tensions were high with 3 teams, Merewether, Waratah and Toronto, vying for the 2 Finals places.  As well as securing a team win - the results of individual matches would prove critical in determining the finalists.

In the first match - Waratah had a close win over hosts Charlestown by 4.5 to 3.5 - and this would prove crucial in the determination of the Finalists.  Then Merewether recorded a clear 5.5 to 2.5 win over Belmont - and this sealed Merewether's place in the Final as the leading team.

The final match saw Toronto record a clear win over Pacific Dunes by 8 to 0 - and this margin was sufficient to propel them ahead of Waratah to secure the second spot in the Final.

Despite Merewether, Toronto and Waratah all finishing on 4 wins for the series - the countback of Individual matches won, resulted in Merewether and Toronto being our Finalists for 2019 in Division 1

 

Muree GC hosted Division 2 - again in good conditions for golf.

With the Finalists being already decided in this Division - the results from this round carried little value other than bragging rights

The NDGA Composite team recorded their first win for the series - with a close win over Nelson Bay by 4.5 to 3.5.   Good results for the Junior members anchored the win.

Tanilba Bay and Hawks Nest played out a 4 all draw - that reflected their placing in the overall results.

Finally, in a dress rehearsal for the Final - Hosts Muree recorded a close win over the Newcastle team by 4.5 to 3.5 - to set up an enthralling contest in the Final.

 

Division 1 Finalists - Merewether - Toronto

Division 2 Finalists - Muree - Newcastle
