Cobram-Barooga golf notes

Club Championships

After some delay, the 2020 Cobram-Barooga Golf Club club championships finished on Sunday, June 21.

Congratulations to all of the 29 men and four juniors who completed all four rounds. Also the nine women who played in the inaugural 36-hole Women's Weekend Championship.

This year, A-grade was tightly contested between Mark Corradin and Luke Trembath. After the 18th hole on Sunday, the pair was tied with a 322 gross which resulted in a four-hole playoff. Defending cub champion Mark Corradin was able to win the playoff by two shots making him the 2020 club champion.

The B-grade championship was completed with a convincing win by Will Power. Power finished five shots ahead of his nearest competitor Troy Schlink with a total gross score of 344.

The C-grade championship ended in similar fashion to A-grade. Steve Burns and Ray Bill finished level after the four rounds on 379 gross. A four-hole playoff was played and Burns took out the championship. This was a great effort from Burns who started the final round outside of the seeded group and made up 11 shots.

This year as the first time in a few years the club has held a junior club championship. After the 36 holes it was Sam Trembath who took out the junior championship by two shots on 205 ahead of Jayden Geisler with 207.

The inaugural women's weekend championship was taken out by Rowena Wallace, with a score of 163. The runner-up was Deb Ryan, who finished on 198.
