The final round of the 2016 Cobram Barooga Senior Amateur concluded this afternoon, as the bumper field of 254 senior golfers finished what was a fantastic three days of golf at one of the Murray Region’s finest layouts.

In the lady’s event, Wodonga’s Dianne Wolfe stormed home to take this year’s event by the slimmest of margins a single stableford point. Wolfe snuck past overnight leader Jenny Hunter (Centenary Park) with a two round total of 99 points with Hunter finishing the event just one-point shy of the top prize with 98 points.    

In the men’s nett event, Bairnsdale’s Martin Farrelly finished atop the leaderboard with a three round nett total of 210 from a handicap of 14. Runner -up was Trevor Wood (Rossdale) with a nett total of 214 from a handicap of 8.

In the stroke event, Kingston Heath’s Gordon Claney capped a strong performance with a final round of 72 for a three round total of 211. Claney led from start to finish securing a dominant 14 shot win from the recent National Senior Masters champion Ian Frost (Bendigo) who finished on 225.
