The 2021 Junior Pennant series commenced on Saturday 30 January with 6 teams, Everglades, Gosford, Toukley, Shelly Beach, Wyong and a composite CCDGA team entered in the competition.
The final round was played on Saturday 6 March and going into the matches Toukley looked to have a stranglehold on the title and a strong win against the young Wyong side saw Toukley finish undefeated and capture the title. Shelly Beach also finished strongly winning all of their matches except against Toukley and the end point score reflected just how close the result was.
CCDGA extends to Toukley congratulations on another title. Also to all of the players, quite a few of whom are shorter than my putter, and to their parents and Club officials who ferry the kids around week after week and without whom the competition could not survive our appreciation and congratulations for a job well done. There is little doubt that on display this year were the champions of the future and golf on the Central Coast is in good hands going forwards.

The 2021 Senior Pennant series commenced on Sunday 31 January and the first 6 rounds were completed without any rainfall or other acts of nature causing any difficulties but rounds 7 & 8 were severely interrupted by torrential rain with only one contest between Breakers and Magenta Shores in round 7 and one contest between Breakers and Kooindah Waters in round 8 completed.
The remaining contests will be completed between Sunday 18 April and Sunday 6 June and have been scheduled to take advantage of the only tee time the host clubs could offer.
Sunday 25 April saw Shelly Beach and Toukley play at Kooindah Waters with Shelly Beach winning a tight "A" contest 4 matches to 3 with Toukley claiming the reserve match points. Shelly Beach won both "B" and "C" grades 2 matches to 1. Another rescheduled contest between Gosford and Kooindah Waters was also played, at Toukley, and the "A" grade was even closer with both clubs winning 3.5 matches and Kooindah Waters claimed the reserve match. Gosford claimed the "B" grade 2 matches to 1 and the "C" grade 3 matches to nil.
The final contest in the "A" grade Pennant was played at Mangrove Mt on Sunday 6 June when Everglades played Kooindah Waters having to win the contest to overcome the slender lead held by Shelly Beach. In a closely fought contest, Everglades took the honours 4 matches to 3 and won the "A" Pennant by one individual match from Shelly Beach in one of the closest series for some years.
Gosford's win in the "B" grade assured them of the Pennant, the clubs with contests still to play being too far behind in contest points to be able to catch them.
The 2021 "C" grade Pennant winner is Everglades. Undefeated in 7 contests and with 1 to play Everglades has 21 contest points / 16.5 match points. The next best in "C" grade is Toukley with 15 contest points / 15 match points and Wyong with 15 contest points / 12 match points. Toukley have played all of their scheduled contests and cannot catch Everglades. Wyong have 1 contest to play but with a maximum of 3 contest points available for the remaining contest will not be able to catch Everglades. Congratulations Everglades!
Although a couple of contests remain to be played the Sterland Shield, the trophy for the Champion Club of the year, is over as Everglades has 32 points with a contest in hand, Shelly Beach 31 and Kooindah Waters and Wyong, the latter two with another contest to play both have 24 points and with a maximum available of 6 points neither can catch Everglades. Congratulations Everglades!
