A maximum field of 144 entered the event with 13 players withdrawing mostly because of ill health. We wish those players a speedy and full recovery.
Congratulations to all the trophy winners and commiserations to those who did not finish in the winning circle. It is a fact of life that there are winners and non winners in every event. With one trophy per player allowed, 31 players picked up trophies apart from ball competitions and N.T.P. trophies.
I would like to take this opportunity of thanking one of my Tournament Committee Members, Kim Stockbridge, who was responsible for collating all scores for the 54 hole event. His incredible effort allowed me to publish scores each day as well as the attachments, and commence presentations in record time.
As this event is currently scheduled on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday prior to Good Friday, the provisional dates for the 2018 are:
Monday 26th March 2018
Tuesday, 27th March 2018
Wednesday, 28th March 2018.
The venues have not been determined at this stage, but as Western Sydney have the hosting rights for 2018, courses to be used will again be in this area.
Finally a little bit of trivia;
- Average age 67
- Average starting handicap 13.5
- Average strokes for the field at each event:-
Thanks to each and every one of you for your support and cooperation throughout the tournament.
Hopefully you will be able to grace us with your presence in 2018.
