Waratah Golf Club 2021 Handiskins Championship
As Sydney descended into a grim COVID lockdown, just out of harms way in Newcastle we were lucky enough to continue with Waratah Golf Club's $1200 Handiskins Championship Final for 2021. And what a close match it was with 12 of the 18 holes squared.
Whilst both Bruce Newlands and Peter Dyer both picked up two skins a piece - it was winning the two nearest the pins that got Newlands across the line to be top money winner and fittingly crowned the the 2021 Handiskins club champion. Spare a thought for Grahame Baler who squared 8 of the 12 tied holes to only pick up one outright skin, and David Finlay who squared 5 of the 12 tied holes to only pick up one outright skin. Its easy to see how all four players could be a threat to National championships next May
Well done everyone. We hope to see you at the Handiskins National Championship at RACV Royal Pines in 2022 on the Gold Coast.
All four finalists received a Bridgestone Golf Cap and fought it out for their share in $1200 of Club Vouchers.
National Championships Qualifications 2022
All four finalists have now also qualified for the national championship and are extended an invitation to contest Australia's best Amateur golf championship at the 2022 Handiskins National Championship at RACV Royal Pines Resort next May. Given the great spirit shown in today's club final, we are sure all four finalists would be in with a chance to claim the silverware and be crowned Handiskins National Champion. The 2022 event will be held from Wednesday 4th – Sunday 8th May 2022.
Non-qualifiers can still join the fun of the National Championships

Craig, Grahame & Raymond - it's time to work on your short game!
Craig Ninness, Grahame Baker and Raymond Carlin are all now in a position to clean up at the Handiskins National Championships Week. After taking out the the nearest the pin challenge in the first, third and fifth rounds of qualifying, don't be surprised if you see them all spending an extended amount of time around the Waratah Golf Club chipping greens in the coming months. All three players have scored an invitation to contest the Yamaha Chipping competition at the 2022 Handiskins Championship Week. The winner will return to their club as the owner of a brand new Yamaha Golf Cart - just like our lucky 2021 winner Shane Gray (watch below).
See you again in 2022
Thanks Waratah Golf Club for a terrific tournament in 2021 - we can't wait to see you all again in 2022
