<image="1" align="right" />

The 2019 Men’s and Women’s Country Week Teams Matches has continued today at Cranbourne, Woodlands and Gardiners Run golf courses.

The men’s and women’s division one matches competed at Cranbourne with results setting up a thrilling final day tomorrow.

Goulburn Murray tops the table after enjoying the morning off before an impressive 6-1 victory against Ballarat in the afternoon.

They will take on Murray Darling tomorrow after they bounced back from their loss yesterday with two wins today, defeating South Western and Golf Peninsula Vic, 5-2 and 4.5-2.5 respectively.

The winner of the match will be crowned the division 1 shield champion for 2019.

The women’s division one competition is similarly poised with two teams set to do battle tomorrow to decide the winner.

Golf Peninsula continued their strong form with a 5-5-1.5 victory against defending champions North Eastern, ending their chance of back-to-back titles.

Golf Central Vic enjoyed the Cranbourne layout with two strong wins.

They now sit outright second with two wins and a tie meaning if they can beat Golf Peninsula Vic tomorrow, they will be crowned champions.

Division two players took to the fairways of Woodlands with West Gippsland securing the victory and promotion back into division one for next season.

With one round to go, West Gippsland sit atop the leaderboard with 3 wins from 3 matches with South Gippsland a win behind and being unable to catch them as they have the bye tomorrow.

The women’s division is set up for a great finish with three teams in the running.

Murray Darling leads the way with three wins from four matches but with the bye tomorrow morning, the overall result is out of their hands.

South Gippsland and South Western are playing each other and depending on their overall score can both challenge for the title.

South Gippsland require five individual matches whilst South Western require five and a half.

The division three players took to Gardiners Run for their second day of play.

In the men’s section, Golf Central Vic look poised for victory as they need just one individual match in tomorrow morning’s game for victory.

Dalhousie currently lead but it seems unlikely they will hold on with their bye coming tomorrow.

Western are out in front in the women’s section and seem destined to head back up to division two for next year.
