Colourful local sporting identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson defeated Chris “Critta” Waters in the final of the Jennison Handicap Match Play Cup in testing conditions. The warm and windy conditions made golf very difficult & Thomo’s experience saw him handle the conditions better than his opponent. Critta got away to a good start winning the first two holes, but Thomo steadied at this point and helped by a couple of errors from Critta reversed the score by half way. Critta was unable to get back into the game on the back 9 & Thomo eventually took the match 4 & 3.
The mulligan group has adopted the World handicapping system which will be introduced in 2020, and all players gave it the thumbs up. The major changes are the adjustment of daily handicaps to account for the difference between the course scratch rating & par & the increase in the maximum handicap to 54.

Popular men’s vice captain, Mark “Mouldy” Millward won the 2018 Heritage Classic with 40 stableford points. Mouldy looked set for a score in the mid 40’s but looked a bit shaky on holes 16 & 17 before steadying himself on the final hole. Runner up was leading female Reva Cullen with 39 points. Bob Perry was third on a count back from Andy Spackman & Neville Kelly (Renmark) all finishing on 38. Danish visitor Paul Smedley was given a provisional handicap of 24 & finished with 43 points.
