2018 Champion of Champions Results

Played at Parkwood Int. Sunday 11th November 2018

Congratulations to Parkwood International for hosting such a great day for our second attempt to gather all our clubs for the Champions this year to become “The Brian Oberman” golfer of the year plus our B and C Grade champs who seem to be forgotten step forward and be counted.

Thanks to Boomerang farm, Tally Valley, Tallebudgera, Surfers Paradise, Arundel Hills, Tamborine Mt, Canungra, Parkwood Int. and Southport Golf Clubs who made their players available for this events success.

It is most disappointing to have so many of our major clubs not represented today, I really hope clubs advised their players of the event in the first place, who would not want to be the Champion  of Champions of the G.C.D.G.A. as is Fuya Hasegawa of Arundel Hills is today.  Congratulations for an incredible score of 71 Gross in difficult conditions.  Runner-Up Karl Mariu, Parkwood and B Grade Mick Jolly Surfers Paradise 75 c/b and Runner-Up Tom Kerr, Tamborine Mt with 75.

C Grade winner Mathew Hilder Arundel Hills with 83 from Jack Wood Southport with 89.  Captain of the year was popular (For whatever the reason) Anthony Sams (Parkwood) but I must say there was some tension within the group regarding home courses advantage but the District match committee jumped on this straight away and calmed the situation down immediately – well done Anthony.

The club of the year was won by Tally Valley and Captain John Connors and his team were stoked with the win.

So the end to another great event and thank you to those clubs who did make it all possible.
