B and C Grade Pennant Finals Decided

The Finals of the 2017 B & C Grade Pennants were played at Toronto CC on Sunday November 12.

Toronto CC was in great condition and the weather was perfect for golf - perhaps the best day we have had during this year's series.

The C Grade Final saw a comfortable win for the team from Nelson Bay over the perennial bridesmaids Charlestown.  Big wins to Darren Handcock and Barry Elliott anchored the Nelson Bay victory

As expected, the final of B Grade was a much closer affair.

With Newcastle leading 3 to 2 - the result hinged on the No.1 match between Nelson Bay's Leigh Messner and Newcastle's John Theaker.   Leigh Messner then won the 18th hole - and clinched the 3rd point for Nelson Bay when he won the 19th hole.   The teams tied on 3 games each.

The sudden death playoff was then conducted between Leigh Messner from Nelson Bay and Chris Wratten from Newcastle - with Leigh Messner winning the 1st playoff hole with a boey 5 to the 6 recorded by Chris Wratten.

Nelson Bay completed the clean sheet - winning both B and C Grade Pennants
