The Petroleum Club of WA's annual golf day is one of the most popular fixtures on the oil and gas community's social calendar. And with lots of great prizes up for grabs including a $10,000 hole-in-one competition, this year’s event was no different.
Almost 100 golfers battled it out in an Ambrose team competition on a perfect day at the Wembley Golf Course.
The Ambrose format allows all standards of golfers to mix and play together with equal enjoyment irrespective of ability.
The competition's winners are determined by adjusting end scores for the handicap of team’s players and subtracting that number from the gross score of each team to arrive at their net score.
The best net score was awarded to Matt Iustini and the team at Technical Resources, while Peter Nicholson, Campbell Ballantyne, Rob Hart and Jason Ward took out the best gross score on the day.
While the competition was filled with many fancy shots, the $10,000 allocated for the hole in one competition remained safely in the bank with only Saasha Callaghan, from Oleology coming close to taking out the prize. Saasha instead took home the 'Longest Drive for a female' award.
After working up a sweat on the course, players then made their way to the 19th hole for post-game drinks, which was quickly followed by dinner and a winner presentation.
The event would not have been possible without the generosity of the Golf Day's sponsors:
