2017 Cranbourne Junior Open
Friday April 7th
A ‘GEOFF OGILVY TROPHY’ & ‘FUTURE CHAMPIONS TROPHY’ EVENT
A collection of Victoria’s golfing ‘young guns’ met at the Club on the morning of Friday the 7th of April to contest the 2017 Cranbourne Junior Open.
A beautiful 27c day helped see some sharp scores at the top of the leaderboard, with Oliver Shaw from Mansfield Golf Club carving his name into the historical trophy, next to National and World renowned Champions Su Oh, Cameron John & David Micheluzzi.
Huge thank you’s go to Katy Lasky who donates both her time and the prizes for this event each year, and also Lyn Gandolfo for her time and efforts as usual.
Cranbourne Senior Amateur
Widely recognised amongst the players as a ‘Can’t Miss’ event on the Senior’s calendar, this year’s tournament produced a new champion after 3 straight years of Gary Easte domination.
Congratulations to Gordon Claney from Kingston Heath Golf Club, who claimed the win with a very impressive 2 under 2nd round on Tuesday 28th February. Paul Fink from RACV Cape Schank won the Nett Championship, Peter Bence (Peninsula Kingswood) the 65+ category, and Bill Black made his trip from Rutherglen worthwhile by winning the 10+ hcp event.
2017 Victorian Mid-Amateur Championships @ Cranbourne/Long Island National
The Victorian Men’s & Women’s Mid-Amateur Championships is a 36-hole stroke play event for male and female amateurs between the age of 30-54 years.
The Men’s Mid-Amateur was introduced in 2005 to provide a pinnacle State Championship for players aged 30-54. National and State Mid-Amateur titles had been conducted in the US for many years and it was felt that such an event was worth undertaking in Victoria given the domination of major amateur titles by players aged 16 – 25.
The 2017 Championship was met with great feedback from all players and officials involved, and hosted by two of outer Melbourne’s finest courses – Cranbourne & Long Island-National Golf Clubs.
Cranbourne Continues to Rise
Ranked at #69 in the 2014 edition, Cranbourne has again moved up and is now ranked at #64, ahead of many better known courses. When you consider that there are 1497 golf courses in Australia, Cranbourne sits well inside the top 5% in the country!
“Cranbourne continues to improve in the eyes of our judges. The course, which has hosted the Victorian Open, has been on an upward curve for nearly a decade in terms of it’s design and set-up, while it’s conditioning is excellent”.
Come and see for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!
Playing Golf at Cranbourne as a Non-Member
Whilst Cranbourne is a private Golf Club, there are also opportunities to play the course as a visitor without having to be introduced by a Member.

2016 Ossie Pickworth Corporate Cup Challenge – Review
With 92 players attending the Corporate Cup Challenge, the players felt like they were playing golf in Cape York as the temperature neared 38c and the humidity was around 90%. 450 bottles of water and Powerade were consumed on the day, as players kept hydrated in the sweltering conditions.
Despite the heat everyone had a great day, with plenty of strong scores posted in the Texas Scramble format. Supagas won with 101 points, followed by Gary Peer & Associates on 100 and Surdex Steel 3rd on 95 points. Other winners on the day included Craig McLeod from NAB Berwick, who won the Nearest the Pin on 14 and a Phillip Island Grand Prix track experience thanks to Waverley BMW, and Chris Collingwood from Golf Victoria who won a China Golf Experience pack with NTP on the 3rd hole.
Players enjoyed the Club’s hospitality all day, and met LPGA player Grace Lennon & VIS Amatuer Blake Collyer on the 10th tee where they each hit drives for the groups as they came through. At dinner our Corporate Partners dined and were entertained by interviews with Grace, and Australian Wallabies and Melbourne Rebels star James Hanson, who was fresh off the plane from scoring a try in the Rebels game in South Africa.
Another great year for Ossie and we encourage you to support the businesses that have supported our golf club this year.
