Glory for Weigand and Massey Park at The Australian

Friday 16, Aug 2019

On a glorious sunny winter’s day, a field of 115 golfers gathered in Sydney for the privilege of playing on one of the country’s most exclusive courses.

General Managers’, their Presidents and Captains along with corporate partners, descended on The Australian Golf Club to contest the annual GMA NSW President’s, Captain’s and General Manager’s Day.

The course is in fantastic shape only three months out from hosting the Open," GMA NSW Director Kieran Semple said. 

“Steven Shearer and his team at The Australian went above and beyond to welcome and arrange one of the best golf days this year,” Semple said.

“And we thank our event sponsor, InGolf Utilities, distributors of Club Car.”

Popular on the golf calendar, 35 clubs from across the state contested the Individual Stableford event with 3 Ball Aggregate in Conjunction, on a course in excellent condition.

The golfers played for the Alex Marks Perpetual Trophy for best individual General Manager score and The John Alenson Perpetual Trophy for best President, Captain and General Manager team score.

In the end the team from Massey Park, David Bowyer (22), Tony Rosillo (13) and Richard Lee (10) took out the John Alenson Trophy with the score of 90 points in the 3 Ball Aggregate, edging out the team from Cammeray Golf Club on 89 points.

Having won the Alex Mark’s Trophy three times before, Derryn Weigand of Cronulla Golf Club, took out the Best General Manager with a score of 36 points.

“It was a great day. Thanks to The Australian, InGolf Utilities and GMA NSW,” Weigand said.

Other winners on the day included Glenn Coyne from Manly Golf Club with Best Individual President (37), Glenn Woodley from North Ryde with Best Individual Captain (34) and Luke Roberts of InGolf with Best Sponsor (34).

Semple extended a special thank you to Schweppes, De Bortoli and Lion for providing product for the event and Taylor Made for providing the prizes.

The next GMA NSW event is the National Conference taking place in October in Melbourne.  Early Bird registrations close on 30th August 2019.

General Managers are also encouraged to submit nominations for the GMA NSW Manager of the Year and Team Member of the Year Awards. For more information, click here.
