2017 Victorian Jewish Golf Championships

Cranbourne Golf Club 22/01/17

Under clear skies and a warm day, with  an immaculately prepared golf course and an incredible 120 participants, including 18 women, the 2017 Victorian Jewish Golf Championships were held at the Cranbourne Golf Club.

The Championships included an Open Stroke event over 2 rounds which involved some 18 golfers including interstate participants. The leader on day one with a wonderful score of 1 over the card 73 was Zac Winograd, who is also representing Australia in the upcoming 20th Maccabiah Games.

With many representatives of the Maccabi Victoria and Maccabi NSW Presidents Cup teams, the winner of the inaugural Maccabi Cup, David Cohen (NSW), and many golfers participating in the forthcoming 20th Maccabiah Games in Israel later this year the results reflected the quality of the field.

The winners of the competition were:

Ladies Stableford

Janet Stuk on a count back from Annette Landes

A Grade Stableford

Tony Beaconsfield 40 points from Zac Winograd 37 points

B Grade Stableford

Russel Harris 36 points on a count back from Maurice Richter and Earle Sacher

C Grade Stableford

Tim Katzen 41 points from B. Kravitz

The Maccabi Victorian Jewish Champion  was Zac Winograd who followed up with a 74 stroke round for a fantastic total of 147 strokes a runaway winner by15 shots from Jason Rubenstein from NSW. That’s back to back for Zac who will be looking for a 3peat next year.

The event was followed by a lovely meal provided by Cranbourne Golf Club. We look forward to many more Championships and a close association between the Maccabi Victoria Golf Club and Cranbourne Golf Cub. The golf course and hospitality provided by the Cranbourne Golf club was wonderful and added immensely to the success of the day, thanks to the tireless efforts of the Pro Shop and the Clubs  hospitality staff.
