Decisive win to Peter Landrebe in Australian GC Gold Medal

Over the three days from 4 to 6 September, Cairnlea has been host to the Australian GC Gold Medal. 

This event is one of the elite Golf Croquet events of the season.  Each state conducts their qualifying event and the six winners compete in a best of three round robin format to determine the Gold Medallist.  The runner up receives a Silver Medal and the other state winners receive an ACA Bronze Medal.

Peter Landrebe (NSW) was the winner with 5 matches won.  Peter did lose three games on his way to his win but none of his opponents was able to win the two games necessary to win the match.  Runner-up was Gordon Giles (Qld) who lost only the one match to Peter. 

The other competitors – Brett McHardy, (WA), Jim Grindrod (SA), John Colquhoun (Tas)  and John van der Touw (Vic) – will be presented with an ACA Bronze Medal in recognition of their success at state level.
