St Andrew’s Village Classic 2022

Wow what a great day! Set against the tranquil backdrop of beautiful Churchill Park, GBC’s biggest tournament, the annual two day St Andrew’s Village Classic, got underway on 2nd March.

Strong competition and great company ensured a memorable and enjoyable couple of days on the Glendowie greens, as 18 teams from 7 clubs battled it out in glorious weather.

Congrats to this year’s champions from Howick: Bruce Hickman, Eddie Jones, Kevin Beasley and Les Brown.

Second, from Royal Oak: Des Fisher, Robyn Fisher, Keith Chaplin and Les McFarlane.

Third, from St Heliers: Mark Posa, Nic Krajanic, Grant Keats and Bernie Yeo.

First Consolation winner and another Howick podium: Gary Cotton, Neil Fisher, Bryan Chapman and Ian Fisher.

A big thank you as always to our long-standing and hugely valued sponsor St Andrew’s Village for their patronage of this tournament and ongoing support of the club.

And a well deserved pat on the back to all those who gave time and expertise – notably tournament organisers Mike Hughes and Murray Grigor, catering dynamic duo Diane Ley and Val Brigham, tournament umpire Phil Bowden and greenkeeper John Amodeo.

Let’s do it again next year!
