The inaugural Brett Ogle Invitational was held at Bonnie Doon Golf Club to raise funds for junior golf development.
It’s no secret that a sign of a good golf club is a good junior golf program. If you see plenty of juniors, there is a good chance this is a progressive, healthy golf club.
Bonnie Doon Golf Club knows this and the inaugural Brett Ogle Invitational teed off at yesterday to raise money for their Elite Player Development Squad who are supported by the club to help them continue their pursuit of golfing success both in Australia and overseas.
Aussie Golfer was lucky enough to be a part of a fabulous day that featured a whole bunch of hackers, amateurs and professional golfers including Craig Parry, Ewan Porter, Lucas Parsons, Matt Millar, Mike Clayton and Brett McCullough.
We’ve previously reviewed the new-look Bonnie Doon Golf Course and the course is currently undergoing a second stage of developments. The new holes at Bonnie Doon are a lot of fun to play and yesterday’s strong winds meant the course was no pushover for anyone.
Aussie Golfer and his group led by Castle Hill professional Alex Edge struggled to cope with the windy conditions for most of the day. I’m happy to chat about three or four of my holes if anyone is keen to listen, but otherwise it’s clear I have some work to do.
Matt Millar won the $2000 winner’s cheque with a 2-under par round 66, but it’s fair to say the Elite Player Development squad at Bonnie Doon were the big winners.
