In just their second year of contesting for the Sunshine Coast Zone Junior Pennants Flag, Noosa Springs, along with Noosa 2 will be heading to the magnificent Twin Waters Golf Course on Sunday the 28th of April to contest the 2019 Pennants Final after what has been an excellent season for both clubs. Particularly when you consider the……
Age, hard work and effort that was put in by these very talented young boys and girls, it’s quite remarkable.
Congratulations from all competing clubs on a fantastic achievement as they wish you and your clubs all the very best in the Finals!
A huge thanks must go to the Cooroy Golf Club, who did a brilliant job preparing their course after once again experiencing another midweek deluge that made things very difficult for them to prepare their course in the manner they would have liked, but never the less, with the help of a perfect day weatherwise, our Juniors and their families made the most of the conditions to contest the final home and away round of the pennants season, where, Noosa Springs and Noosa 2 booked their spots in the Finals, where everyone is more than welcome to come along and support their friends and fellow team mates.
The Final Results were as follows: Nambour def Gympie 2/1, Noosa Springs finished on top of the ladder with a 3/0 win over Maroochy River 2, Maroochy River 1 accounted for Headland 2/1 and Noosa 1 def Caloundra 2/1.
As mentioned, Cooroy worked overtime to have their course and facilities in good condition for the day, but given that this was Noosa 2’s (bye) meant that Rob Upham (Noosa Men’s Captain) and John Purdue, ably supported by Jim Di Pietra (Maroochy River Men’s Captain) who did a brilliant job hosting the day.
They did a fantastic job and like most clubs, created an atmosphere where everyone enjoyed their golf and most importantly, felt welcome.
Some of the many highlights during the day included: Jasmine Lena’s brilliant drive on the 4th to within four foot of the hole, Sami Dryden and Ruby Kavanagh’s brilliant putt’s on 6, Luke Barnes long putts on 2 and 5 to save par and another on sixteen for birdie, witnessing Mickey Schimack-Orrell ’s rounding out his pennants career as a junior with a win on the 18th, Ionna Muir taking that same match to the 18th, and Samara Dryden's five consecutive pars to win her match against Ruby Kavanagh 4/2, which were just a few of the many highlights that were on display.
One of the major highlights for those that followed the pennants season, was in the way they embraced the competition (including their caddies, families and committee members) they played in great spirit and should be applauded for the sportsmanship, camaraderie and friendships they bring to the game, even under great pressure, they create an unbelievable atmosphere and did a brilliant job.
Once again, many thanks to those that have witnessed highlight or magical moments, both on and off the course and passed them on, it's much appreciated. If you do happen to witness any magical moments, please feel free to text then to Graeme on 0417 783 848 so we can all enjoy the moment?
The Tour would also like to thank Scott Mayes (Sunshine Coast Golf Association) for his and their very generous support with stats and info.
