ADFGA v GA Senior Match

26 - 28 March 2017

Each year, a Golf Australia Senior Team contests a match against the Australian Defence Forces golf team. The event is played over two days, with foursomes and four-ball matches on day one, and singles matches on day two.

The 2017 ADF Team will be selected following the 2017 Royal Melbourne Senior Classic from 16-18 January.

Host club - The National Golf Club, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria

News

The ADF golf team defeated the Golf Australia team 14.5 matches to 9.5 matches at The National Golf Club.

The first morning's foursomes matches were completed, however the afternoon's fourball matches were cancelled due to stormy weather.

The annual dinner on the Monday evening was attended by the Chief of Air Force (CAF) AVM Gavin ‘Leo’ Davies. All players gained an insight into the remarkable work of the ADF.

The second day greeted the players with sunny skies and significantly lighter winds for the singles matches.

A couple of early wins were required by the Golf Australia team of Mike Peeck (Captain – Qld), Mark Abeyaratne (Vic), Adrian Barr (Vic), Simon Bracegirdle (Vic), Allan Bullas (Vic), Tim Deakin (Qld), Mark Gatty (WA), Tom Harold (NT), John Kelly (Vic), Jacqui Morgan (NSW), Helen Pascoe (Vic) and Bill Wellington (TAS), however sadly they didn’t eventuate.

Overall the ADF team proved too strong (and long), winning the match 14.5 to 9.5.

A great thank you to the staff of The National Golf Club for providing a magnificent setting and exemplary service.
