David Bagust wins Australian men’s senior amateur championship

16th October, 2019 Latest News Comments Off on David Bagust wins Australian men’s senior amateur championship

The week before the Australian men’s senior amateur championship, David Bagust took a boat with his wife, sister and brother-in-law and sailed around the Whitsundays, forgetting about golf. It worked a treat for the businessman from Port Macquarie. Bagust, 62, arrived at Maroochy River Golf Club for this year’s nationals on a mission; today, he took the lead into the third and final round and held on to win by two shots. It is the New South Welshman’s biggest-ever triumph in any form of golf. He had only played once previously in the national championship, although he is a former club champion at St Michaels in Sydney, and captain of his district in Port Macquarie, his adopted hometown since 1996. He came up the 18th hole knowing he had a three-shot lead over fellow-New South Welshman Peterson, who ended up finishing second. “I didn’t put the drive in the water,” he said. “I told (playing partner) Ian Frost ‘I’m hitting my ball over the green’. Which I did, but I got up and down for par.” Bagust shot 74-71-71 to finish even-par overall, good scoring in windy conditions. Later, he headed off for a well-deserved celebratory drink with family and friends. “It was always a little tense,’’ he said. “I’ve never been in that situation before. I’ve got to say the people I played with were very friendly, Lester Peterson and (Queenslander) Ian Frost. I’d played with Ian the two previous days and we were encouraging each other and Lester’s a gentleman. That made it that bit easier.’’ Victoria’s Gordon Claney, the defending champion, finished third. “I got a little stale a couple of weeks ago,’’ said Bagust, who has twice been runner-up in Port Macquarie’s club championship. “I spent the week in the Whitsundays without a golf club near...

Quedesha Golledge wins Wagga Junior Masters

19th February, 2019 Latest News Comments Off on Quedesha Golledge wins Wagga Junior Masters

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

18th January, 2019 Latest News Comments Off on NSW Junior Pennant title won by LNCDGA

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...

Pyper Hollis – on the move

1st September, 2018 Latest News Comments Off on Pyper Hollis – on the move

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...
