The first round of the pennant season began on Friday 2 February at the Endeavour Hills course of the Churchill/Waverley golf and bowls club.

Conditions were perfect for the opening with a very light breeze and a light overcast for the first few holes.

Thereafter the sun shone through with a few glary moments when players faced east.

The many kangaroos watched languidly as golfers traipsed through the trees in search of errant golf balls.

Some were never found while unclaimed balls popped up like mushrooms in springtime.

Only five matches were squared, one match finished with 7 holes to play and two finished with 6 holes to play.

The players commented on the good condition of the greens, the trimmed rough and the well grassed fairways giving value for good hits.

Trees consulted balls on many occasions and bunkers would not cooperate with sand wedges.

All up every player seemed to enjoy the day, the comradery, the good sportsmanship and fellowship.

The day was topped off with presentation of results a few drinks and an excellent light lunch prepared on site and served by our club manager, assistant pro, and bar staff.

Round 2 at Heritage registration 6.45am for 7.30 hit off.
