Gosford Golf Club 2021 Handiskins Championship 

A beautiful Autumn Day greeted our finalists at Gosford Golf Club today to contest the club's 2021 Handiskins Club Championship. All four players were first time finalists and the nerves weren't far away despite the stoic facade of the gents as they approached the first tee. 


Michael Sewell jumped out of the blocks fast - picking up 3 of the first 4 skins. But then things really tightened up. of the remaining 14 holes, twelve of them were squared and only two were won outright. This resulted in an unusal situation on the 18th hole whereby all four players were competing for a monster jackpot of $400. Whoever won this hole would win the title and a great payday.

It was testiment to how tightly contested this event was that the final hole was also squared meaning all four shared $100 each. This was enough for the fast-starting Sewell to hold on for the title on $475, edging Jeffery Adams on $435, Gary Frost on $175 and Peter Bellemere on $115. What a great day of golf and there were plenty of stories to take us through to the clubs 2022 rivalry.

Bridgestone Golf Handiskins Cap

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.
