2016 SUNSHINE COAST PENNANT WRAP UP

SCSB District Golf - Sunday, April 24, 2016

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
A GRADE MAT WALKENHORST (Headland) TJ King (Mt Coolum)
Zac Quirk (Mt Coolum)

B GRADE

(joint winners)

GERRY LYNCH (Maroochy River) Chris Elliott (TCB)
KURT TEHLIWEC (Mt Coolum)
MASTERS JEFF GRIFFIN (Caloundra) Ken Speare (Nambour

JUNIORS JOSH HOLBROOK (Headland 1) Will Rothwell (Noosa)

Finally, to help with making improvements, the Zone Committee will once again conduct a Survey via Sunshine Coast Golf website to ensure we are getting the right mix to serve the future good of the game.
