The Brisbane Golf Club has won their first round match of the 2016 Pennants season defeating Indooroopilly Golf Club 14 to 7 on Sunday.
The home victory has provided the team with a great start in their quest to win a Division 2 Pennant after being promoted from Division 3 last year.

Our juniors, with four debutants, played well to secure a 3.5 to 1.5 win. There were a number of highlights from these matches including Hayden Millen winning seven holes in a row after being 2 down to win 5 & 4; Matthew Van Eden making an eagle on Hole 6 from 117 metres to kick start his win; and Zack Haplin coming from 3 down to win 1 up with a birdie on the last. Whilst Adam Sriwanichpoom battled his nerves to square his match and Sam Slater was just narrowly defeated by a tough number 1 opponent from IGC.
The Open’s team produced 6.5 points from a possible 11 to also secure a win. IGC has some wonderful players and were strong across the board but in the end our guys were outstanding. David Padayachee led the way with a 6 & 5 victory and other winners were Jordan Lett (6 & 5), Scott Bretherton (6 & 4), Simon Dougan Jones (3 & 2), Lewis Clelland (5 & 4) and Cameron Powell (2 & 1). Whilst former Junior Club Champion, Luke Kjeldal came from 3 down to square his match on the last hole.
Our Masters have won the Club Pennant for their division the last two years in a row and would love to record a three-peat. Their 4 to 1 win was again impressive with wins to Gary Brodie (5 & 3), Warwick Oxenford (1 up), Stephen Deane (7 & 6) and Brett Kinninmont (3 & 1).
The second round of the 2016 Pennants Season will again see BGC at home but this time to Redcliffe Golf Club. This is again expected to a tough match and all Members are encouraged to come out from 7am to support their team.
Redcliffe Golf Club defeated Wynnum Golf Club 12.5 to 8.5 at home yesterday.
The team selections will be finalised early this week.
