Westminster Golf Day

Thank you to all 63 players who attended Golf Day last Friday (17 September) at Glenelg Golf Club. It was a fantastic event, made even more so by the weather, which held off just long enough for everyone to complete 18 holes and a post-round drink without getting wet!

It was Kent Williams’ (’05) team, pictured with (l-r) Todd Williams (’13), James Fisher (’05) and Nick Rusling (’07), who took out top honours with an Ambrose four-player score of 55.4.

Peter Spooner (’77) was another notable winner, taking out both the Nearest the Pin awards, while Jack Horton (’87) and Christine Oxer won the Longest Drive for Men and Ladies respectively.

A huge thank you to Vili’s, Weekend Surf Company and Drummond Golf for providing our prizes and again for Vili’s by ensuring there was nourishment to be enjoyed on the day (in between drinks).

We plan to make a return to Glenelg Golf Club next year and look forward to having you ‘save the date’ once confirmed.

The Westminster Old Scholars’ Football Club

Last Friday evening (17 September), WOSFC held its end of season dinner, The Greenlow, at the Glenelg Surf Life Saving Club. It was a sell-out event with everyone in fine form to enjoy the evening and recognise the players who took out major awards.

Amongst the winners were Tom Reardon (’20), receiving the Luke Boylan Award for an Old Scholar who has provided Outstanding Service to the Club; Oscar Williams (’20) for the Bs’ Most Improved Player Award; Aaron Fielke, who again won the As’ Rod Simpson Medal for the Best and Fairest; and the inaugural Golden Dragon Awards for Outstanding Club and Team Service: As’ Brock McFarlane, Bs’ Craig Hall and Cs’ Michael Flaharty, pictured with Neil Williams (’66), WOSFC all-round legend and founder of the Golden Dragons.
