YOG Annual Golf Day 2017

After several years playing the greens at Huntingdale, we are moving the YOG Annual Golf Day up to the road to the Commonwealth Golf Club in South Oakleigh. The Yarra Old Grammarian Association will again be seeking sponsors for the event so that the price can be kept low for members keen to play (we are hoping to keep it as low as $150 per player in 2017). If anyone has a business that is keen to support the event please fill out the form below. We have some great sponsorship packages and would love to get as many YOG companies involved as possible.

We have the course exclusively booked for Monday 3 April 2017 for a 1pm tee off and the event will culminate in a relaxing gourmet BBQ, catch up with old School friends and the winner's presentation in the Club Rooms. We are particularly interested in getting more female YOGs to join in for this day on the green! A special thank you goes to our sponsors for their generous support of this event.


YOG Annual Golf Day 2016

Each year YOG organise a Golf Day for past students to enjoy.  This year, over 90 golfers from the Yarra Valley Grammar community took part in the sixth Yarra Old Grammarians’ Annual Golf Day on Monday 4 April 2016 at Huntingdale Golf Club. 24 teams competed for the coveted winner’s trophy this year and all put in a tremendous effort.

Melbourne put on a beautiful day providing players with perfect conditions for an afternoon of golf. Starting with a light lunch in Huntingdale’s beautiful Clubhouse, the players then hit the green.

The winners on the day were Andrew Oxland, James Bonnett,Tony Free and Steve Hoppe who walked away with the Perpetual YOG Annual Golf Day trophy with an incredible nett score of 51.375. Second Place with a nett score of 54.25 went to Gary Martin (YOG 1986), James McConkey (YOG 1986), Rod Meikle and Peter Mitchell. Third Place with a nett score of 55.625 went to Yarra Valley Grammar’s staff team comprised of Russell Manning, Jack Harper (YOG 2012), Peter Warren and Bryan Harper. We congratulate all teams who played and put in such a stand out effort!

Other winners on the day were James Han, David Balshaw (YOG 1994), Tony Free and Brett Nagel for nearest the pin and Lochie Dickson for longest drive.

Huntingdale kindly donated an extra prize which included a free day on their beautiful greens and use of their members’ rooms for one lucky player to use with their choice of three friends. Darren Smith (YOG 2002) won this prize and we hope he enjoys another day out!

AON Risk Solutions kindly offered players the opportunity to win $10,000 if they hit a hole in one on the 12th hole but unfortunately no players were able to claim this great prize.

Thank you to everyone who participated for your wonderful support of the event. We hope to see you all back for the YOG Annual Golf Day 2017 next year!
