‘Thacky Wackers’ claim inaugural SA MyGolf Junior League

The Thaxted Park Junior team known as the ‘Thacky Wackers’ have won the inaugural South Australian – MYGolf Junior League.

The MyGolf Junior League, is designed to give juniors their first experience of competitive golf in a fun safe and importantly, modified team environment.It is the next step on the junior golf pathway, beyond the MyGolf National Junior Program.

The six-team league comprised five rounds, with six players competing each week over 9-holes, in a two ball Ambrose format, with modified rules, and on a shortened course.

Five MyGolf Centres accepted Golf SA’s invitation to field a team to participate and it is great to see those clubs hosting matches throughout the season and being committed to growing junior golf and creating family friendly club environments.

The Final Fun Day saw all teams competing in perfect conditions at Mount Osmond Golf Club.playing each other in ladder order.

Adelaide City MyGolf Centre (AC Red team) finished the minor round undefeated with 4 wins and a half, but it would be the Thaxted Park (Thacky Wackers) who claimed the title winning 15 ½ points to 11 ½.

Glenelg (Black) defeated Mount Osmond (Eagles) 20 ½ to 6 ½ to claim third place and bronze, Mount Osmond finished fourth.

Glenelg (Yellow) defeated Adelaide Shores (Sharks) 17-10 to claim fifth place with The Sharks sixth.

The teams who fielded a side this season, are from some of the best golf courses in South Australia, if not Australia, so we hope the players enjoyed their time, learnt more about the game of golf and had fun out on the fairways.

The next SA MyGolf Junior League in planned for Term 2, 2018 so please stay tuned for further details.
