Today was the culmination of another huge pennant season. A new record of 377 players across four grades participated in 2016 Sunshine Coast Golf Zone pennant this year. That’s a massive commitment of people and resources to get the teams on the course each week.
It takes a huge amount of planning and organisation behind the scenes for Pennants to run successfully:
- Fellow SCGZ committee members, President Dallas Furner and Secretary-Treasurer Paul Downman have contributed their advice and experience throughout the season.
- The Club Secretary-Managers, Golf Managers and Pro Shops always provide constructive feedback, support and assistance.
- The Team Captains and Managers orgainise their teams each and every week.
- The Mums and Dads drive the Juniors around the Coast in this first season with girls participating.
- All the caddies deserve a mention too. It can be a thankless and frustrating job, but by being out there you make it easier for your player. The players appreciate your efforts.
- Finally, thank you to all you players. Without you, there wouldn't be a Pennant competition on the Sunshine Coast.
We congratulate the following players for their individual successes within their teams during the 2016. The 2016 Pennant Players of the Year are:
|PLAYERS OF THE YEAR||RUNNERS-UP|
