Pro golfer Jarrod Lyle joins Handiskins

I am pleased to be involved with Handiskins and urge all Golf Clubs to be a part of this great concept. It is a fun competition that allows golfers to experience what it is like to play like the professionals. Handiskins helps to get more people playing golf and gives back to the clubs involved.

Importantly Handiskins is supporting children and families living with cancer through the Challenge mascot Leuk the Duck. As an ambassador for Challenge, I am delighted that money will be raised through the Handiskins competition and the sale of Leuk the Duck merchandise, to help children and families living with cancer.

Good luck to all clubs and players involved in 2016.

Ian Cottle - General Manager Burleigh Golf ClubHandiskins was a fantastic promotion for our Members and we have far greater participation then we anticipated. The Handiskins team provided excellent co-ordination of the event and their attendance on the first and last rounds helped make the promotion a success. Our Members are already looking forward to the 2017 event

Telephone conversations with verbal commitments have been met with hands on execution. Our members were a little unsure when they first heard about an amateur skins format, but embraced the idea once the tournament teed off with a few players finishing strongly to try and make their way into the top 4.

The final match held this morning was played during a lovely winter sunshine day and Paul Edwards, once again, was here to address and officiate the match. Our four members thoroughly enjoyed the skins match with our plus 3 marker mentioning he loved the added pressure. Paul assures me the 2017 tournament will be bigger and better and l’m excited to see the format and sign up for our Nudgee Golf Club members. Thanks again to Paul and the entire team at Handiskins for offering club members something a little different.

2016 A Big Year for Juniors
This year 3 juniors have stood out in the Handiskins Competition which is a true testament to their inner strength. Handiskins is a game of pressure and who can handle it especially in the final. Matt Thompson from Cowra Golf Club, Max Wellington from Lynwood Country Club and Monica Marchesani from Rosebud Country Club all showed they have what it takes to keep up with the big boys. Earlier in the year Matt took on seasoned golfer to claim $600 in his clubs final then Monica not only went into the final as the low marker but took on men more than twice her age to win $160. To take top spot on the juniors prize winners leaders board Max came out swinging to win $640. Handiskins is truly a game for all levels of golfers and these kids can stand tall. Matt Thompson has already booked into the Handiskins National Final which will be a great experience for him and we hope to see the other junior up at RACV Royal Pines next May battling it out with all the other finalists from other Handiskins Clubs.

Women's Year with Handiskins
In 2016 we have had more women the ever before making Handiskins Finals at their clubs and it is great to see. It means that golf has no boundaries and with Handiskins men and women can compete on an even playing field. This is the 2nd year for our Handiskins National Final but it is the first year that any of our lady finalists have booked at place at the National Final. We welcome the ladies to the National Final and look forward to seeing how they go.
