The Western Sydney Region Veterans Golfers Association hosted it’s first Inter-Club tournament for 2019 in February, at Penrith Golf Club, with a full field of 144 players representing the eight member clubs.
Leonay GC (Stephen Cromer, Robert Chruszcz, Owen Brennen and Judith
Knox) recorded 154 points to triumph in the team event by a single shot,
fittingly over 2018 Club of the Year Richmond GC on 153.
Dunheved GC placed third on 150, followed by Penrith GC 149, Wallacia GC
147, Springwood CC 144, Glenmore HVGC 143 and Stonecutters Ridge GC 141.
There was some brotherly rivalry at the top of the Men’s individual
results, with Leonay’s Stephen Cromer (43 points) just edging out
Wallacia’s Peter Cromer with 41.
Richmond’s Carol Carter had a runaway top score of 39 in the Ladies
Division, well ahead of Glenmore’s Juanita Robb with 34.
