The 2020 Junior Pennant series commences on Saturday 22 February with 6 teams, Everglades, Gosford, Shelly Beach, Toukley, Wyong and a composite side playing under the CCDGA banner vying for the title.
The series is to be played in round robin format and will finish after 5 rounds on Saturday 28 March. Saturday 21 March has been reserved to allow players to travel to Bathurst for the JNJG Peter O'Malley Junior Masters. A coach trip is again being organised for or Juniors by Mick Lamaro and interested players should watch the web site and facebook pages for details of this trip which proved so popular and successful in 2019.
The final round of the Junior Pennant was played over the weekend of 25 / 26 July ending what must be the longest season ever played.
On Saturday 25 July Toukley were drawn to play Wyong at Shelly Beach and unfortunately Wyong were only able to field 3 of the requisite 6 players. Toukley proved too strong in the 3 matches that were played and ended the season with a 5.5 to .5 win.
Also on Saturday 25 July Everglades played Shelly Beach at Toukley and it was clear that the Pennant winner would come out of this contest. Everglades had to beat Shelly Beach to square up the points and, if they were to go on and claim the Pennant, had to win handsomely. There were some very close matches, three all square after 18 holes, but in the end Shelly Beach proved too strong and claimed the match 3.5 to 2.5 and the 2020 Pennant. Congratulations to Shelly Beach for winning the Pennant and also to all of the kids who represented their Club during this difficult year.
The remaining match, Gosford against the CCDGA composite side, was scheduled to be played at Everglades on Sunday 26 July but given the result of the match had no impact on the Pennant standings and the forecast East Coast low due to hit the Coast on the evening of Saturday 25, a decision was taken on Saturday evening to cancel the match and record a 3all tie. The weather forecast proved to be correct and apart from ducks few people would have been on the course on Sunday.

The 2020 Senior Pennant series commenced Sunday 2 February. The loss of Morisset Country Club resulted in 9 clubs vying for the Pennant and a change to the format. This year the series will be played over 3 grades, "A" "B" & "C" and in one Division in a round robin format. There will be no final so points accumulated during the season will be all important.
Sunday 13 December saw resumption of play with 3 rounds remaining to complete the 2020 season. At this time of the year tee time is at a premium and the 2020 season will not be completed until 24 January 2021 and never before has a Pennants series taken so long to identify a winner. Thanks Covid! Standings with 1 round remaining are:
