Palm Beach Grab Division Four in a thriller

Palm Beach Golf Club have won their Club’s maiden Metropolitan Major Pennant in a thriller against Asquith Golf Club today.

The result of the match came down to a nail-biting 23rd hole win by the Peninsula Club’s youngest player, 15-year-old Jackson Upton.

Team Manager and proud dad Mark Upton was ecstatic with the win.

“It was a great game. He was five up after nine; then the other guy came back, then five playoff holes. I’m very proud of him,” Upton said.

“It's our club’s first pennant. It’s unbelievable; we’re rapt."

The celebrations are expected to go into the night back at the club.

“We are all booked in for a few drinks, except for Jackson who’s not allowed,” he laughed.

“All the boys have played well; not one individual has stood out. They're a good bunch of guys."

“They’ve played together since juniors. It's a great result all round,” he smiled.
