DIVISION 2 WOMEN WIN THE HILLS PENNANT 2021 CHAMPIONSHIP

 

The Oakbank Golf Club women’s team has taken out the Div 2 Hills Pennant Championship for the 2021 season.

Congratulations to the team, comprising club members Annie Hunter, Mary Parkyn, Jenny Schultz, Judy Thomson, Joy Page and Val Pattison who defeated Echunga 3/2 in a close encounter at Willunga on Monday 3rd May. 

The last time Oakbank had won a Women’s Pennant was in 1992 – a break of 29 years.

It reflects the strong growth in Women’s golf at the club and is a great reward for the hard work put in by the Women’s committee in particular, and the Club in general, to foster female participation in golf. Several successful Come and Try Days, conducted in a friendly, casual atmosphere have resulted in an increase in our female ranks. The Club’s Mens B2 and C1 teams also reached their respective finals, rounding off a solid performance by Oakbank in this season’s Pennant competition.

Overall, the club has enjoyed growth in all membership categories with over 240 members now enjoying playing on one of the best 9 hole courses in SA.

PAVING, PAVING and MORE PAVING

 

On Thursday 2nd September over 30 willing club members volunteered to help lay approx 10,000 pavers over 300 square metres alongside the practice putting green.

 

Under the fantastic supervision and organisational skills of club member Jeff Langbien, they started at 8 am in the morning and the job was finally completed around 6 pm.

 

Many thanks to all who gave their time and effort on the first 30 degree plus day of the new season. Special thanks to Jeff for driving the project from start to finish.
