The oldest Honour Board event in the Club (and one of the oldest competitions in Australian Golf) the Blackheath Medal was completed at the Club during May. The Medal is a 36 Hole Stroke nett event and has been played since 1898. It is often referred to as the Blackheath Medal but it’s correct name is the Midwinter Medal in accordance with the wish of the donor, Alfred Schacht of the Royal Blackheath Golf Club in London, the medal was a gift from a member from the oldest golf Club in England to the first golf club in Brisbane. The trophy is currently donated by our Life member Mr. Bruce Richter.
Congratulations to Soorian Raman who won the Club’s prestigious Midwinter (Blackheath) Medal with a fine two round score of 140 pipping Tom Deane by countback. Soorian had two consistent nett 70’s. Damien Percy finished 1 shot further back in 3rd place.
