ACA Golf Croquet Bronze Medal - Victoria
A most enthralling event was held at Cairnlea on the weekend of 5 - 7 April.
The eight most highly ranked available players were selected to compete for the honour of representing Victoria in the ACA GC Gold Medal. This will be played at Cairnlea in September as part of the Interstate Shield programme.
GC Selectors’ Invitation, 6-7 April
This event is a highlight of the VCA Calendar each year. Held concurrently with the Bronze Medal, it is an event used by state selectors to evaluate the performances of State Team Squad members and monitor the improvement of players from around the state who show commitment and development in their game.
The event was divided into three sections and pitted players against each other according to their current ranking. It was unfortunate that the Section 3 events had only 6 players competing. However the results indicate the closeness of each event. All sections were played as a round robin, best of 19 hoop format.

Successful Western Metro GC doubles event over Easter weekend
Western Metro held its second annual Easter handicap doubles event at Cairnlea this weekend, again sponsored by the Pascoe Vale Community Bank who donated $800 towards prize money and refereeing.
The event attracted sixteen pairs in two events, from five metro clubs and six regional clubs.
Saturday was very warm and by the end of the day players were wilting. Sunday was overcast and very windy, and threatened rain, but play finished before the storm.
