BGC go down to Redcliffe

The Brisbane Golf Club faced an in-form Redcliffe Golf Club away from home yesterday in Round 3 of BDGA Division 1 Pennants going down 18-3.

Redcliffe now sit four points clear on top of the table and are in strong position to secure their first ever Division 1 title. BGC, Keperra Golf Club and Royal Queensland Golf Club are all equal second on two points.

The first half of the season has been tough for BGC with two away games and just one game at home. Our home matches in the coming weeks will define our season and we look forward to hosting Redcliffe this Sunday in Round 4 and RQ in Round 6.

Lawry Flynn and Ben Steiler both recorded wins in the Opens. Lawry winning his match 5&4 and Ben his 2up. BGC started strongly in the Opens but was unable to overcome a strong and experienced home side in the end with Redcliffe winning comprehensively 9-2.

James Sammut in the Juniors secured the team’s third point of the day winning his match playing at number 2, 6/5. It was wonderful to see Campbell Kerr represent BGC for the first time in what is certain to be one of many pennants matches for this young golfing talent.

The Masters unfortunately were unable to secure a point across their five matches but are looking forward to a chance to balance the ledger this weekend.

In the other match played this week Keperra upset their hosts RQ 12-9.

All four teams will play each other again in Round 4 next Sunday with BGC and Keperra the hosts on this occasion.

Once again, a big thank you to our caddies and supporters who were in attendance.

Team selections for Round 4 will be finalised early this week and announced on Wednesday.
