Week 7 – Juniors Division 2 Team – Keely Bowen, Archer Charles , Dimitry Josevski and Joseph Josevski
Played at Tea Tree Gullky Golf Club against Kooyonga GC Lost 6 to 4
Final update 2018.
Just 4 intrepid juniors ventured up to Tea Tree Gully to play against Kooyonga due to school holidays and other sporting events. Keely Bowen played a great game to take a 4 and 3 win and Dimitry Josevski left one on the lip of the 18th hole to finish with a half. Archie Charles battled all day in a tight contest at number 1 and was unlucky to lose 4 and 2.
Peter Josevski may have lost his match but going on the comments from the Kooyonga team manager, won their respect with his friendly attitude and etiquette . Well done Peter.
So thanks to all the players who participated this year and thanks to all the parents and carers who got involved. Without your help we wouldn’t be able to participate in these events.
Many Thanks to All Keith Bowen
Special congratulations to Keely Bowen who made the SA Secondary Schools under 15 State side on Friday.

Week 6 – Juniors Division 2 Team – Keely Bowen, Leon Bolz, Lyndon Williamson, Archer Charles and Khye Maddern.
Played at Glenelg Golf Club against Tea Tree Gully – Lost 1 to 4
As the season end looms closer we headed to Glenelg to take on TTG. Leon Bolz once again showed his determination to win against a much lower handicapper 3 and 2 and Keely Bowen fought hard all day only to lose on the 18th. Lyndon Williamson battled hard and while he lost 4 and 3 was not disgraced after being 7 down at one stage. It was good to see Archie Charles and Khye Maddern back in the team and both these guys were unlucky to lose 6 and 4.
So 1 more week to go at Tea Tree Gully and currently we have a few spots available in the team due to school holidays, so if any of our juniors are available to play this week please let either Sonia or myself know as soon as you can.
Week 5 – Juniors Division 2 Team – Keely Bowen Captain, Amy Anderson, Leon Bolz, Lyndon Williamson and Nick Williamson.
Played at Willunga Golf Club against The Vines GC – Lost 1 to 4
This week saw us playing the top of the ladder side The Vines at the Willunga Golf Course.
Amy Anderson once again played a solid game at number 4 finishing with an 8 and 6 win and Leon Bolz took his opponent to the 18th to narrowly lose 1 down.
Lyndon Williamson got all the way to the 17th only to lose 3 and 1 and Keely Bowen struck the ball well at number 2 but had some trouble with the quick greens to lose 7 and 5.
It was good to see Nick Williamson back in the side, he always brings a great attitude and is fun to have around, unfortunately Nick couldn’t get his game going and finished with a loss.
While we lost 4 matches to 1 we were not disgraced and the team will learn from playing a stronger side.
Well done to all.
Week 4 – Juniors Division 2 Team – Keely Bowen Captain, Amy Andersoni, Leon Bolz and Lyndon Williamson.
Played at The Vines against Glenelg GC – Won 3 to 2 with only 4 players
A wet and cold Vines Golf Club hosted this week’s match against Glenelg and a late withdrawal from the team left is with just 4 intrepid members to do battle.
Once again this group proved there is no obstacle they cannot overcome. Leon Bolz played a magnificent match at number 1 to win 6 and 5, Amy Anderson and Lyndon Williamson both went to the last hole both finishing 2 up and Keely Bowen played a much older and more experience opponent and only just lost 3 and 2.
With only 4 players, a 3 matches to 2 win in challenging conditions was nothing short of miraculous.
Well done to all players, I couldn’t be more proud.
Week3 – Juniors Division 2 Team – Keely Bowen Captain, Dimitry Josevski, Leon Bolz,Peter Josevski and Khye Maddern.
Played at Kooyonga against Mt Osmond GC
This group continues to impress me with the way they never say never.
A great win by Khye Maddern winning 3 and 2 in his first pennant match, congratulations Khye. Peter Josevski also played in his first match but was unlucky in tight battle. Great effort Peter. Keely Bowen, Lyndon Williamson and Leon Bolz all took their opponents to the 18th, but unfortunately all 3 lost in close contests.
In the end the team lost 4 matches to 1, but were by no means disgraced.
This is a great bunch of kids with a fine attitude. The future is bright.
Week 2 Wrap!
Juniors Division 2 Team – Keely Bowen Captain, Dimitry Josevski, Leon Bolz, Lyndon Williamson and Amy Anderson
Played Grange at The Grange GC won 3 to 2
Playing Grange at home is always a challenge but this group of passionate youngsters took it on without fear.
Wins from Amy Anderson 3/2, Keely Bowen 2/1 (after being 4 down half way through the match) and a very exciting last putt 1 up win by Dimitry Josevski saw us take the match 3 to 2.
Lyndon Williamson and Leon Bolz fought hard but lost in exciting matches.
I was extremely proud of the way these guys keep going in challenging conditions against tough opposition on their home track.
I think this is one of the best wins I have seen from a group of juniors.
Well done team.
Keith Bowen, Team Manager
As always the Junior parents will step up to support all of the children enjoying a fantastic opportunity to represent our club.
With Keith Bowen managing and Sonia Dryden-Bown again this year.
