Grade Winners Decided

The final round of the Women&aposs Grade Competition has concluded with Pennant Hills Golf Club winning the 2013 Division 1 Women&aposs Grade Competition. In a tightly contested division it was Pennant Hills who narrowly defended the title ahead of New South Wales Golf Club and The Australian Golf Club. All three clubs finished on 10 team points however it was Pennant Hills superior individual match win total that won them the grade flag. The team from NSW Golf Club thought for a moment they may have taken the title after a 7-0 victory, however, Pennant Hills were successful by the same margin to win the flag by 1.5 Individual Matches. In Division 2 it was Monash Country Club who clinched the Division 2 pennant after remaining undefeated throughout the six rounds. Pymble Golf Club finished as runners up in the division after accounting for Oatlands Golf Club five matches to two in the final round. Cromer Golf Club (pictured) have comprehensively finished first in Division 4 after remaining undefeated with two squared contests. Cromer finished with a tally of ten team points one win in front of Carnarvon who were next best two points behind. Previously reported Grade Winners – final round held 22 March In a tightly contested Division 3 it was Killara Golf Club who won the Grade 3 Pennant. Despite three other clubs also achieving an equal number of victories over the five rounds it was Killara placing first due to an overall higher number of individual match wins. The final round was played at Royal Sydney Golf Club and whilst Killara lost to Cumberland in the final round it proved to have no consequence as the team had already achieved enough wins throughout the round stages to clinch the division. Division 5 was a different story with Moore Park winning the women’s Grade 5 Division emphatically from their fellow competitors. Moore Park progressed through the Division without dropping a contest, winning four out of the possible five rounds that were played with the remaining contest being a draw with Woolooware in round 2. This was due to a cancellation as a result of heavy rain that was experienced in the lead up to the event. At Marrickville Golf Club it was Penrith who finished 2 points clear of Long Reef to win Division 6. In another closely contested Division it was Penrith who proved to have the greatest consistency going through the Division undefeated with two squared contests against Kogarah and Marrickville. Penrith s victory over Long Reef in round 1 would prove to be the difference and the club will be looking to repeat this success when they move up to Division 5 next year.
