2017 Heathcote Winners
LtoR: Vera Lund (Kooringal), Stan Davis (Bendigo) and Shane Hearps (Heywood).

The Heathcote Golf Club hosted its 10th annual Senior Amateur tournament today with a 72 player field taking to the course in beautiful golfing weather. Heathcote is the first of three events this week, with Shepparton and Tocumwal also hosting Senior tournaments in the coming days.

While an overnight frost and some lingering fog kept the ground moist underfoot for nearly half a round, it kept its country charm with players walking amongst the kangaroo’s at the foot of scenic Mount Ida.

Stan Davis from Bendigo has prevailed as the 2017 Champion, his first title at this event, carding a three-over par 74, edging out Metropolitans John Kelly who shot a 74 off the stick. Davis cruised around the front nine with an even par score which set him up for his great round, returning to the clubhouse with a three-over par back nine. Kelly’s card was identical on the back nine, but one extra shot on the front handed Davis the win.

It was an all Kooringal show in the women’s Stableford event, with members Vera Lund and Heather Harley taking out first and second places respectively. Lund posted 34 points off a 15 handicap, while Harley was just a shot behind with 33 points from her 6 handicap. In the men’s handicap section, Shane Hearps from Heywood took the main prize with a nett 67 (handicap 15), with Buninyongs Kevin Robinson finishing second, one shot behind and off a countback from gross winner Stan Davis.

Many of today’s competitors will make the short trek to Shepparton in the Goulburn Valley when the opening round of the 2017 Shepparton Senior Amateur commences at 11:00am.
