THE end of the pennant golf
season in South Gippsland last
Sunday was a complete and utter
Well, almost. Division Three at
least went down to the wire.
Wonthaggi finished on top of the
ladder in Division One and there -
fore claimed its third premiership
in-a-row, but they already had the
trophy parcelled up a week before
they beat Meeniyan 5-2 at Wonthag-
gi in Sunday’s final round.
Which was actually the resched-
uled fourth round.
And there’s your problem right
No one, it seems, apart from
some mystery members of the
South Gippsland District Golf As-
sociation, wanted to reschedule the
fourth round and do away with the
popular grand final day.
Long- serving SGDGA Secre -
tary Denis Stanes was vehemently
“ Fair enough, they called off the
fourth round because of the threat
of lightning at some courses but
they should have scrapped the
round completely and given ev-
eryone half points like they do in
Winning Wonthaggi Division One
Captain, Danny Crellin, would have
preferred to play a final.
“ Everyone loves finals day. It’s a
real showpiece for the sport locally
and there’s always some drama on
the day. We love it. ”
Someone doesn’t love it though,
and the competition fizzed out into
a final round where there wasn’t
much to play for in most divisions.
While Division One was already
decided, there was at least a math-
ematical possibility of Korumburra
challenging ladder leaders Leon-
gatha in Division Two.
The equation was that Leongatha
couldn’t win by more than 4-3, and
Korumburra had to win 6-1, then
hope for a better percentage. They
won their match against Phillip Is-
land at Wonthaggi 5-2 .
One of those losing matches,
between Shane Harland and Paul
Russo, was close over the final
stages with Russo 1-up after the
17th but he closed out the match
2-up when he won the 18th hole.
But it was close.
Leongatha claimed the Division
Two title and will have to field a
team in Division One next year un-
der the relegation rules which see
Woorayl drop to Division Two.
Foster narrowly won the Division
Three pennant in what was effec-
tively (thankfully) a real final be -
tween the top two teams, crucially
decided 4-3 in Foster’s favour on
Lang Lang smashed the opposi-
tion in Division Four, narrowly held
off Leongatha in Division Five and
Korumburra only had to win one
match against Phillip Island in Di-
vision Six. They won 4-3 to easily
take the title.
