Bialik College Golf Day A Great Success

On Friday 23 November, the 2018 annual Bialik College Golf Day was held at Cranbourne Golf Club, sponsored by CVS Lane for the second year in a row. As the participating golfers drove down the Monash, it felt like an ark would be a more appropriate form of transportation as the weather seemed to be trying to re-enact the great story of Noah. However, 86 golfers braved the elements to complete the 18 hole Ambrose competition. The inaugural best dressed award went to the dashing Phil “Professor Plum” Goldberg, and the smartest looking lady on the course – Brenda Dart. The rain took a momentary break as the golfers headed to their allotted hole and the siren sounded to begin the day. Some chose to play under umbrellas, others had the full wet weather gear, towels were used to dry slippery hands but despite the wind and rain the main priority was still trying to get some birdies. You could hear “woo-hoo’s” and high-fives around the course as long putts were sunk, and the GolfDay Pro live app meant that everyone knew where they were on the leaderboard until the final four holes, when the mystery set in.  At the end of the round golfers gathered in the clubhouse to ring out their gatkas, have a few drinks, a BBQ lunch, and congratulate the following people on their prizes:

Winner: Morgan Stanley’s team (Antony Green, Michael Sfetkidis, Wesley Moore, Rodney Mackintosh) with a score of Net -18.500

Second: Escala Partner’s team (Mason Allamby, Stephen Collins, Pep Perry) with a score of Net -17.833

Last Place (Not A Golfers Toochas): Renaissance Team (Charles Akkerman, George Altman, Andrew Rogers, Jack Silver) with a score of Net -3.625

Longest Drive 0-15 Handicap: Andrew Whitaker (AssemblyNow team)

Longest Drive 16+ handicap: Stuart Ward (Fife Capital team)

Closest To The Pin Hole 3: Liam Brennan (Fife Capital team)

Closest To The Pin Hole 8: Wesley Moore (Morgan Stanley team)

Hole-In-One Comp: No-one!!!

A big thanks to all of our sponsors and players who helped make it a great day in trying conditions, but still better than a day in the office!!! Not only is this a fun event, but it remains one of the school’s best fundraisers for the year, helping to fund fees assistance for families struggling to afford the full fees.
