Quedesha Golledge wins Wagga Junior Masters

Posted on 19th February, 2019

The LNC juniors got 2019 off to a fantastic start by winning the JNJG Junior Pennants at Newcastle in January and now at the first “Masters” for the year at Wagga Wagga, KCC/Taree junior Quedesha Golledge has taken out the girls 14/15 year title not only winning the gross section by 1 shot but also the nett (JNJG rules wont allow a player to win both gross & nett so Quedesha takes out the gross event). With rounds of 81 and 81 (162) and finishing 6 under her handicap with her nett result, Quedesha has now set herself up for a great year which will culminate with automatic entry to the year ending JNJG Championships at Bonville Golf Club. Quedesha was a member of our winning Pennants team. The next Master is at Bathurst on March 23/24 and the LNC is going to have a strong representation at this event with many of our talented girls and boys traveling for this weekend of top class golf. I encourage all of you to think about playing in as many “Masters” events as possible as these events set the standard for junior golf in NSW. Well done...

NSW Junior Pennant title won by LNCDGA

Posted on 18th January, 2019

I am delighted to advise that the LNCDGA junior pennant team (Fletcher Murray KCC, Oli Payne PM, Pyper Hollis KCC/Taree, Danny Bisby Taree/Wingham, Madeleine Laws-Farrell PM & Quedesha Golledge KCC/Taree) are the 2018 JNJG NSW Junior Pennant CHAMPIONS. On Monday morning at Newcastle Golf Club in head to head match play, LNC beat Kiama  4 matches to 2 with Fletcher, Danny, Madds & Quedesha winning. On a very hot & steamy Tuesday morning we played Toukley in the final. The matches were close for much of the morning but the LNC finally got the upper hand and came away as 5 matches to 1 winners. Our only loss was Oli, who was one down at the 18th after fighting back from 4 down at the half way mark. All six of our players were simply magnificent and were well led by captain Fletcher in the #1 position. I firmly believe the team spirit and camaraderie among our six players had a big bearing on our win as they continued to encourage each other as the matches progressed regardless of whether they were up or down. Summary: V Kiama – Fletcher W 2/1, Oli L 4/2, Pyper L 3/2, Danny W 2/1, Madds W 8/7, Quedesha W 3/1                    V Toukley – Fletcher W 3/2, Oli L 1 down, Pyper W 2/1, Danny W 2/1, Mads W 5/4, Quedesha W 2 up I want to personally congratulate all six players on outstanding golf they played which led to their wonderful win. In particularly I want to thank Oli Payne for playing in the #2 spot. Oli has not had the time for much practice or tournament golf during 2018 due to his studies but he put his hand up when we need him, played some great golf and added enormously to the team spirit. Finally I want to encourage all our LNC juniors to play as much club golf as their busy schedules will allow, to take every opportunity to obtain coaching from their club professional or their academy staff who are always there to help them, to play in as many tournaments as they can especially our local junior classics, the North Coast Junior Masters, the LNC junior championships and to be ready to represent the LNC at future events. Later this year we will be selecting a team to defend our JNJG junior pennant title, a team to compete in the JNJG Encourage Shield, a team to compete in the Col Johnson Four ways tournament in the Hunter Valley and we have three inter district matches scheduled in 2019. I know you have already received the 2019 junior calendar with all events listed but I am attaching another copy just in case the first one went astray. If you need any other information please let me know. It is going to be another big year for junior golf in the lower north coast and it has certainly got off to a GREAT START!! Regards to you all and happy golfing Howard Burrows LNCDGA –...

Pyper Hollis – on the move

Posted on 1st September, 2018

Last week  was quite a week for Kew Country Club’s talented junior golfer Pyper Hollis. The 16 year old who resides at Cundletown but is a member of three clubs (Kew, Harrington and Taree) just missed selection into the six person NSW girls team for the SSA 17 years & under golf championships, played at Bonville and Coffs Harbour from 26th to 31st August. However as fate would have it, the Western Australian team found itself one player short and Pyper was invited to join their team. After rounds of 84 & 83 on the tough Bonville layout, Pyper finished as the leading player for WA and with rounds of 76 & 75 after her 8 shot handicap was deducted, won the girls Schools Sports Australia nett trophy. A fantastic result but Pyper was not finished for the week. After starting in the #2 position for WA in the round robin match play event against every other state, Pyper found herself moved to the #1 position after the first day and having to play against girls with much lower handicaps. Pyper managed to win three of her five matches and was narrowly beaten in the other two. A wonderful effort. It has actually been quite a year for Pyper with a win in the 16 years and over nett division of the Jack Newton Junior Golf Foundation North Coast Master at her home course of Kew in May, a win in the girls open division at the Singleton Junior Golf Classic in July and two weeks ago a sweep of the prizes at the CNC Women’s Open classic played at Kew over three days last month. Pyper was the overall gross winner, the Champion of Champions winner and was part of the team that won the Beryl Avery team event. So what’s next for this very talented young lady. She has qualified to play in the JNJG Srixon International Junior Classic at Cypress Lakes in October where the best players from every state of Australia and many overseas countries will compete in this prestigious event, she has an invitation to compete in the NSW pro-am in Sydney in November and the year finishes with the JNJG Championships at Bonville in December. In between Pyper will continue to compete in local district junior tournaments, Saturday morning competition golf with her girl friends at Kew and will find time to continue with her schooling. In addition Pyper is a member of the Hunter Academy of Sports which means regular weekend trips to Newcastle for intensive golf and fitness tuition. Pyper’s success has been achieved by hard work and dedication to the game of golf and is just another of the long line of successful junior golfers who started their journey by learning to play at Kew Country Club’s regular clinics ( the Red Swarm) that commence at 8.45 am every...
