G.C.D.G.A Congratulates You !

Elvis Smylie GCDGA 2018 Div 1 Pennant

Recently Elvis was selected to play in the Aaron Baddeley International Junior Championships held at La Costa – USA. Elvis acquitted himself extremely well against the best there is in junior golf on the world stage. After 4 rounds he finished second, one shot behind the winner, who incidentally, had a home course advantage. Congratulations Elvis.

But more, 2018 has been an outstanding year for junior golfer, Elvis Smylie, member of Southport Golf Club.

Earlier this year he represented QLD in the state of origin series against NSW where he won all of his matches.

He then went on to win the Tasmanian Junior Masters recording 14 under par.

In early September this year he finished second in the Gary Player classic.

He was a member of the victorious QLD State Junior team which won the Australian Championships, in doing so Elvis only lost one match.

He finished tied with three others in the QLD Boys amateur and came second as a consequence of a play off.

At a district level in our GCDGA Pennants playing in Div 1 for Southport he won all of his matches bar one, going down to Inia Logan from Emerald Lakes. He also won this year’s Burleigh Cup by 5 shots.

He captained our Inter-district junior team against BDGA earlier this year, recording a win for his team in this event.

Elvis is our district representative at the Greg Norman Junior Masters currently being played at Palmer Colonial and Palmer Gold Coast courses. We wish him well, with the final round to be played this Thursday morning. Good luck Elvis.

It must be said that Elvis is an excellent role model for junior golf in our district, a wonderful ambassador for his club, and doubtless his parents, Peter and Liz, must be very proud of what he has achieved so far.

Coolangatta & Tweed Heads GC Junior Pennant Final Winners 2018/2019

GCDGA Junior Pennant Finals at Coolangatta/Tweed (Feb 3, 2019)

The 2019 GCDGA Junior Pennant final was fought out at Coolangatta/Tweed west course on Sunday. The winners were Coolangatta/Tweed with six and a half wins to Emerald Lakes’ one and a half wins. There were several outstanding performances with at least three matches going to the eighteenth hole to achieve a result.

The captains of Cool/Tweed and Emerald Lakes, Connor Whitelock and Kyle Gray respectively, played outstanding golf with each player recording several birdies in a top quality hard fought match. Connor Whitelock, the recent winner of the South Australian Junior Masters prevailed, with an eagle on the nineth as well as achieving back to back birdies against Kyle on the last two holes to win two up.

It was a fitting result for the Coolangatta/Tweed team as they farewelled their long time junior convenor Andrew Outridge who has spent several years nurturing junior golfers.

Result:  Coolangatta Tweed defeated Emerald Lakes 6.5 to 1.5
