Geelong GC Open

The annual Geelong GC Open Tournament was played over the Labour Day weekend at three venues in most pleasant conditions.

The competition was contested in great spirit and provided many close matches with the results certainly reflecting a tightly fought event.

Section 3 for handicaps in excess of 8 was played at Drysdale where the winner was Jenny Calwell (Drysdale) with 6 wins and 21 net hoops. Clint Chandler (Beaufort) was second with 5 wins and 22 net hoops just ahead of Denise Deller (Belmont) on 5 wins and 15 net hoops.

Section 2 for handicaps 6 – 8 was played at Eastern Park where the first three placegetters all had 4 wins. Sue Colvin (Belmont) won with 10 net hoops from Ron Kennedy (Bairnsdale) on 7 net hoops and Wolfgang Klemenz (Belmont) was third on 3 net hoops.

Section 1 for handicaps up to 5 was held at Belmont where a round robin of 19 point games was played. The players were very happy with this format whereby a smallish field was still able to get plenty of croquet over two days. Bob Roycroft (Eastern Park) won comfortably with 7 wins and 35 net hoops followed by Andre Daniel-Dreyfus (Williamstown) on 5 wins and 11 net hoops from Tony Pye (Eastern Park) on 4 wins and 15 net points.

Full results are on Croquetscores.

Grateful appreciation is extended to the many people who made the weekend possible, particularly the venue managers and referees.
