Everglades Country Club 2022 Handiskins Championship 

"Drive for Show - Putt for dough!"

Never have these words ever resounded more than today at Everglades Country Club for the seventh running of their Handiskins Club Championship. In a day that could've been anyone's, it was the missed putts that everyone left out there that will be the talking point for the next 12 months.

In the end there was only one putt that mattered and that was Brendon Schonkala's putt on the eighteenth hole - which saw him jag a $160 Jackpot to finish the day on $540 to win his first Handiskins club championship, edging out Rod Wales who finished the day on $500. Joel Welch ($120) and Danny Cunningham ($40) closed out the minor placings, shaking their heads at the missed opportunities that they left behind.

Bridgestone Golf Handiskins Cap

Well done everyone. We hope to see you at the Handiskins National Championship at RACV Royal Pines in 2023 on the Gold Coast. 

All four finalists received a Bridgestone Golf Cap and fought it it out for their share in $1200 of Club Vouchers. 

National Championships Qualifications 2023

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 2023 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 2023 event will be held from Wednesday 3rd – Sunday 7th May 2023.
