Sandy Creek Golf Club 2021 Handiskins Championship 

A momentous day at Sandy Creek Golf Club in the beautiful Barossa Valley (and not far from the famous vineyards of Handiskins Sponsor Peter Lehmann Wines), as our four finalists lined up to be crowned the clubs inaugural Handiskins Club Champion. 

Tony Davies jumped out of the blocks fast  picking up the first 5 skins before the other three finalists got amongst the money. By the time the men had completed 10 holes Tony had won 7 of the skins and looked to be unstoppable. But things tightened up on the big-money back nine and 7 of the remaining 8 holes were squared. In the end it was Berta Pye's massive $260 jackpot on the 16th that proved the difference and this was good enough for him to take out the club's first ever Handiskins title.

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.
