TOP NSW senior golfer Denis Dale has won the inaugural The Grange Senior Championship in blustery conditions in South Australia.
Strong winds on both days of the amateur championship didn’t allow for low scoring but Dale showed all his class and experience to beat South Australian John Beaumont by two strokes.
Dale is a two time winner of the Australian Senior Championship and has also twice won the Australian Senior Order of Merit.
Queenslander Ken Glasson was third with West Australian Nigel Goodall a further stroke back.
Winds gusting to 40 knots meant wild and woolly conditions for competitors.
The Grange Golf Club is one of South Australia’s premier sporting venues with two internationally rated 18 hole golf courses.
The Grange has previously hosted major professional events including the West Lakes Classic, South Australian Open and PGA events. The Club has also hosted all major Australian Amateur events including the Australian Amateur and Interstate Team Australian Junior as well as Australian Lady Amateur events.
