Signature Golf - 3 Peat Possibility

26/08/2019
In week 4 the senior boys signature golf team contested round 3 of the 2019 Intercollegiate Golf Championship. With a team win in round one and the prospect of winning a 3rd consecutive title on the line, it is fair to acknowledge that the last two rounds of the Championship have real meaning for these young men.
With a 5:00am bus trip to Hills Golf Club for round 3, the boys were prepared for a long day on a course known for it's length and tricky course set up. The weather did not disappoint with not a breath of wind or a cloud as far as the eye could see, a good score was there for the taking.
Fortunately, the hard work that the team has been putting in both on and off the course continues to pay off with the boys taking out the senior boys team nett division on the day. This is 2 out of 3 wins for the team this year, which puts us in a great position to win 3 consecutive nett championship titles. This is one of the longest running school golf tournaments in the state which is now contested by over 10 schools in South East Queensland which has been a playing platform for some of the country’s best golfers to play the game including Australian major winners Jason Day and Adam Scott.
However the accolades of a win for the team does not stop there, with two of our students shooting some of the best overall scores on the day. Lachlan (Year 10) shot a fantastic nett 68 to take out 2nd place overall in the boys individual nett division. However it was a day to remember for the College’s up and coming junior golfer Matthew (Year 8), who gave away several years in both age and experience to play up in the senior division to shoot an individual score of nett 64, one of the lowest scores in the tournament this year. This round had extra special meaning for Matthew, not only because he won the boys overall individual nett division but he also achieved one of the golfing milestones in breaking 100 off the stick with a superb.
Congratulations to both students on their fantastic rounds on a very testing course and as we cross all our fingers and toes we wish you all the very best for the final round of the Intercollegiate Championship in early Term 4.
On an unfortunate and sad note, North Lakes Resort Golf Club closed it's doors to the public on Sunday, 10 August 2019. This is not only a major loss to the College’s Signature Golf Program, but also to the wider North Lakes and golf communities. We were extremely lucky to have had access to practice and play on one of the best courses in the country and I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Liam and Adam and their staff for their hospitality, service and support of the students and the program over the past 9 years. We have some fantastic memories that we will take away and we can only hope that one day the course may be reinstated and it's potential realised again.
Stay tuned for further information in regards to a new host facility for the college’s golf program!
