Sunday the finals of the Mens Championship Pennants for the Division 1 and 4 Walton teams

Never before has Walton Golf Club had the opportunity to play in a Division 1 Final. In fact in the last 35 years there have only been 5 clubs that have won the title.

Division 1
Walton vs Matamata at Lochiel

The team of Kyle Moore, Jono Blair, Andrew McGiven, Mike Buckman, Ben Slaven and Charlie Smail. After the morning foursome matches with wins to the pairings Charlie and Jono, Andrew and Kyle however the clean sweep was not quite to be with Mike Buckman and Ben Slaven halving there match as the Matamata pairing of Curtis and Nathaniel eagled the 18th hole to halve the match, Walton led 2 .5 to 0.5 against Matamata.

The afternoon singles matches were hard fought with most matche's being very tight at the halfway point. Wins in the afternoon to Charlie Smail, Ben Slaven and Jono Blair saw the Walton side home and win 5.5 to 3.5.

A big thank you to all the caddies and supporters who turned up to help us out!!

Division 4
Walton vs Te Kowhai
The team of Jono Armstrong, Gavin Pitcon, Bede Higgins, John Higgins, Don Sharp and Mark Lewis. Walton were leading 2 to 1 after the morning foursomes. The afternoon matches did not go our way, unfortunately. Never the less a great year for them in making the final.

 

It's been a great year for the club winning Division 1, The Prebble Cup and making the final in Division 4. A big thank you yo all the players who have represented the club over the year. There have been some great performances and a few more stories created to tell at a later date...
