Regional Championships 2019

The 2019 NSW Zone 2 Regional Championships were held at Newcastle Golf Club on the weekend of August 17, 18. Newcastle Golf Club was in excellent condition and golfers faced a strong Southerly wind on Saturday which abated somewhat on Sunday to a perfect for golf Spring day. This event is a 36 hole stroke event with teams events in conjunction. Unfortunately we were not able to compete in the teams events due to the make-up of our team.
98 player took part with teams of 21 player teams representing the 4 Districts taking part, namely, Central Coast, Hunter River, Lower North Coast and Newcastle as well as 23 individual entrants.
Noteable highlights from LNC competitors included David Bagust winning the Senior Regional Championship and Paul Matthews scoring the best Second 18 Nett result. This is an excellent result considering the challenging course, weather and opposition.
The major team event is for the Jim Baker Shield with 21 players representing each District. This year saw the team from Hunter River DGA triumph with a score of 2788 from the Newcastle DGA on 2797 and Central Coast on 2862
The overall Regional Champion was again Lloyd Radcliffe from Central Coast DGA with 74, 72 146 off his Plus 6 handicap.
The LNC District would like to thank all of the team who made the effort to travel to Newcastle and compete in very difficult conditions.
