Super Seniors hit Richmond
Richmond Golf Club played host to round three of the 2019 Golf NSW Super Seniors Pennant on Tuesday, August 20.
As the host club, Richmond members performed various duties throughout the day, including being starters and spotters, whilst the other six teams in section four sought to tame both the course and their respective opponents.
Glenmore Heritage Valley Golf Club continued their great series with a runaway win over Springwood Country Club, getting up 7.5 - 0.5.
That dominant performance wasn't enough to knock their current co-leaders off the top of the competition ladder as Twin Creeks Country Club had a solid 5 - 3 win over Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club.
Penrith Golf Club scraped past Wallacia Country Club 4.5 - 3.5.
The following week at Penrith on Monday, August 26, Richmond faced Springwood but came up short 3 - 5.
Twin Creeks defeated Wallacia 5.5 - 2.5 and Glenmore Heritage Valley dominated Stonecutters Ridge 8 - 0.
There were two rounds left in the competition, with Twin Creeks hosting round five on Monday, September 2. Results were not available at the time of going to press. Springwood and Stonecutters Ridge will host rounds six and seven.
Richmond are sitting sixth in the group only ahead of Wallacia, Springwood and Stonecutters Ridge sit a point or less ahead of them.
Pappas teams up with Penrith
Richmond Golf Club junior Reginald Pappas has just finished playing in the Eric Apperly Shield competition, playing for Penrith Golf Club.
The annual competition, run from July to September, consisted of three Sydney sections and one country section, with six individual matches played within each section over 18 holes of match-play without the benefit of handicap.
Penrith's team for their 2019 campaign included Pappas, Leonay's Coby Carruthers, Dunheved's Blake Hodges, Wentworth Falls' Chazz Ritchie, along with Penrith's Michael Organ, Blake Murray and Lachlan Baker.
"As no local club had the base to form a team, a number of local juniors joined forces," said manager Jamie Organ.
"Many of the group are current members of the Western Sydney Academy of Sport.
"The team is relatively young and in most matches were up against much older and stronger competitors.
"Of the five matches, the team halved three and lost two, which was a sound result given the quality of the competition.
"The team are keen to compete again next year and will certainly benefit from the experience this year."
The Penrith team finished in fourth spot.
