On a perfect Friday morning, 57 men and 15 women competed in the 2017 Box Hill Senior Amateur. The event took place over 18 holes with the men competing in stroke and women playing stableford.

Doug Francis from Metropolitan Golf Club made the perfect start to his senior golf career by taking out the Men’s Gross Competition with a score of 73. Runner up Kym Olsen and third place Mick Streit both shot 75 but couldn't quite chase down an in-form Doug Francis.

Christopher Clark (Gunnamatta Golf Club) played off a daily handicap of 8 and claimed the Men’s Nett Competition with a nett 70. Close behind him were Paul Williams and Mark Abeyaratne who both had nett 71.

Helen Pascoe (Buninyong Golf Club) has wrapped up another win on the women's seniors circuit scoring 32 scratch points in the Women’s Scratch Stableford competition to win by 4 points. June Tickell was the next best with 28 scratch points and managed to put her name on the winners’ list by claiming the Women’s Stableford Competition with 34 stableford points.

Thank you to all participants who competed and made for a highly enjoyable event. The next event on the senior calendar is the Cobram-Barooga Seniors Golf Tournament to be held on May 8-11.
