After a drought of 27 years without the club’s name on the historic Edwards Dunlop trophy, Murrumbidgee Country Club prevailed over Yowani’s #2 team in very unseasonal conditions at Belconnen Magpies golf club on Sunday to become the ACT Monaro Handicap Pennants champions for 2021.
On a day when the wind reduced the ‘feels like’ maximum to 7 degrees, players were tested to the full. While the end result was a strong margin of 5 and 1/2 to 1 and 1/2, 4 matches went to 18 holes and 2 of those went to sudden death on the 1st playoff hole.
Both team captains were complimentary of the good spirit in which the contest was fought.
The generosity of the host club Belconnen Magpies and the efforts of the Pro Shop to assist the event were very much appreciated.
Congratulation Murrumbidgee Golf Club!
