The 2017 Pennant series drew to a conclusion over the weekend of April 1 & 2 when the finals were played.
The Junior final was played on Saturday 1 April at Everglades under bright blue skies and in very comfortable weather. Shelly Beach played Toukley for the title and the match was played in great spirit with some fantastic shots being played by the stars of tomorrow.
In the end Shelly Beach proved too strong on the day for the Toukley youngsters although 2 matches went to the 19th hole. Congratulations to all of the kids that played in the final and for their clubs throughout the year.
The senior finals were scheduled for Sunday 2 April and unfortunately the fine weather from Saturday did not continue into Saturday and the matches were played under grey skies and in squally conditions.
In A" grade Shelly Beach, reigning premiers, again faced Toukley at Morisset in a replay of the 2016 final but at the end of the day Toukley proved too strong and regained the title. Again the matches were played in great spirit and it is testimony to the club spirit of these two Clubs that both had spectators at the final.
The B & C grade finals, between Toukley and Wyong and Kooindah Waters and Toukley respectively, probably had the worst of the conditions with rain squalls blowing in off the ocean all day. The conditions impacted on the pace of play and whilst the B grade managed to reach a result with Wyong proving too strong for Toukley, the C grade final went into extra holes and had to be suspended on the 20th hole when the day became night.
The players in the final match had to wait a week and then return to the 2nd hole at Shelly Beach to complete the hole which was won by Kooindah Waters securing the C grade title for Kooindah Waters.
The Sterland Shield was again won by Toukley.
