97 year old Reg Ballard honoured at The Rosanna Golf Club

Reg Ballard

How many rounds in a year have you played before? How many will you play in your 90’s? Try 200 for Reg Ballard from The Rosanna Golf Club.

Last night, in a very special presentation, Rosanna honoured a legend of their club with a painting of Reg that will be displayed in their clubhouse. A member of 49 years, Reg still holds a handicap of 24 at the age of 97.  

Beloved by the members of Rosanna, Reg is one of the last remaining members of the famous Rats of Torbruk army corp. His story is compelling and includes a lifetime involved with golf.

In the May edition of the Golf Victoria newsletter, we’ll be featuring Reg’s full story. Sign up for the monthly newsletter here.
