SANDVIK DESERT CLASSIC 2017 Results and Wrap-Up

by admin

Another year, another hugely successful SANDVIK Desert Classic has been completed. A huge thank you again to Clint Gow-Smith, Darren Male and the entire SANDVIK crew for sponsoring and supporting an amazing weekend, without your support it wouldn’t have been possible, and again must be thanked for donating proceeds of the chip-in competitions to the Roxby Kindy. Another thank you has to go the Woomera Golf Club for hosting on the Saturday, their small crew of volunteers had the Woomera course in tip-top shape, and their hospitality throughout the day and night with food and beverages was amazing, we are all looking forward to coming back next year. Another thanks to all the RDGC/SANDVIK volunteers helping Rene and Tori have the course in great condition for Sunday, and the food, beer cart and bar volunteers throughout the day on Sunday. To Wade Hooper for his promotion of the event and running the chip in competitions throughout the weekend, thanks and we hope you can continue to support the event in years to come. Another big thank you to the APEX Postie Bash crew for cooking up a much needed breakfast on Sunday morning. Last but not least, thanks to all the players who supported the event throughout the weekend, we hope you will all spread the word about this great event and hope to have even more teams next year!

Congratulations to all the winners over the weekend, and congratulations to our overall champions Mark Huntley and Jason Habel from Streaky Bay, who took out the weekend with a Desert Classic Record -18 Under (124) gross score, what a performance! See below for all the winners over the weekend, and find a link below for the full results sheet.

Also a big congratulations to Roxby Downs Golf Club life member Don Shields who took out the Sunday Chip-In competition and has won a trip to the Gold Coast, thanks to SANDIVK!
