Congratulations go to Jarryd Martin (Bacchus Marsh West) and Anna Inglis (Buninyong) on winning the Junior Pennant Player of the Season awards. 

Playing at number one, Jarryd Martin won all five of his matches convincingly.  Jarryd is a very consistent player and led his Bacchus Marsh West team to their first Junior Pennant title last season.  A member of the Ballarat District Golf – Boys Representative Team since 2017, Jarryd will again be an important player when the team heads to Cobram Barooga Golf Club in May to compete in the Victorian Boys Country Regions.

After losing her first match of the 2019 Junior Pennant season, Anna Inglis has gone on a nine match unbeaten run in the minor round over the last two seasons, adding the 2020 Junior Pennant Player of the Season award to the one she won last year.

It takes a considerable amount of effort to conduct the Junior Pennant competition each year and Ballarat District Golf wish to thank:

  • The clubs who fielded a team
  • The managers for organising their teams
  • Ron Adams (Secretary – Ballarat District Golf) for starting the field each week and collating the scores
  • Tony Collier (Golf Australia) and Andrew Cartledge (Ballarat Junior Golf Academy) for assisting with competition coordination
  • Mt Xavier Golf Club, Bacchus Marsh West Golf Club, Buninyong Golf Club, Maryborough Golf Club and Midlands Golf Club for hosting the matches

Good luck to Mt Xavier and Bacchus Marsh West in the final.
