Ken O’Brien (Rossdale GC) has won the 2017 Melbourne Senior Classic, played at Spring Valley & Woodlands Golf Clubs, with rounds of 74 and 71. The Rossdale GC member produced quite a remarkable 1-under par round at Woodlands today which saw him hole out from a bunker on two occasions. O’Brien edged out Spring Valley member Greg Ebinger by two strokes who finished with rounds of 75 and 72.
Ian Fraser (Huntingdale GC) claimed top prize in the Men’s Nett competition with nett rounds of 73 and 70. Michael Doutch (Woodlands GC) enjoyed a fantastic second round of nett 67 at his home course today to snatch second place from Ian McCleary (Kooringal GC) on a countback.
Sue Wooster (The National GC) made the perfect start to her Golf Victoria Seniors debut and took out the Women’s Scratch event with 56 points. The next best was Sandra Collingwood (Keysborough GC) with 43 points.
In the Women’s Stableford event, 3 players were tied on 62 points after 36 holes. However, it was Carmelle Claney (Kingston Heath GC) who was determined the winner on a countback to Sandra Collingwood and Marilyn Anderson (Spring Valley GC).
Spring Valley & Woodlands come together each year to provide senior golfers with an opportunity to play on an impressive Sandbelt layout. Both clubs provided great hospitality to all involved.
The final field consisted of 67 men & 13 women and we expect this to grow even bigger next year.
Next on the calendar for Victorian senior golfers is the Melton Valley Senior Amateur to be held on November 10.
