Congratulations to the Woodlands Junior Pennant Team who won the Junior Pennant for the first time in the Clubs history. It is a long road to the finals with 45 teams in regional qualifying followed by quarter finals & semi finals, to take out the overall title is a huge achievement.
The Semi Finals were played on Saturday at Sandringham Golf Course and it was an enthralling finish to the second semi-final between Woodlands and the undefeated Riversdale side. With three matches already in, Riversdale was in the box seat with their number one match heading down the 18th hole with a one-hole advantage. However, an errant shot by Riversdale’s Lachlan Snart opened the door for Woodlands and a brilliant approach shot from Ben Stevens was all that was needed to give his teammates hope as they eagerly watched from behind the green. Needing to make a 10-footer for birdie the 4-marker hailing from Darwin held his composure to drain the putt and take his match back to all square and to the 19th hole for a result.

The Finals were held on Sunday at Yarra Valley’s new Eastern Golf Club and it was nail biting finale to this years Junior Pennant final as Woodlands and Riverside battled it out in chase for the 2017 honours. It didn’t look good for us a couple of times, but we clawed our way back into it and despite being the under dogs in terms of handicaps we managed to walk away with a finals flag.
