The New Zealand Eagles Tournament was played at the Aviation Golf Club 5-6 October. Two boys and one girl are selected from each province to compete at the national event played over 54 holes.
Congratulations to Brent Kirdy (Tinwald GC), Alex Kelliher and Jessica Shearer (both Pleasant Point GC) who were chosen to represent Aorangi at this year’s tournament.
Despite being up against some tough competition and the weather elements making it heavy going over the two days, the team did us all proud with some excellent results.
Jessica excelled in winning the U17 girls net and stableford competitions and finished in second place in the gross. Twelve year old Alex Kelliher was Runner-up in the single round stableford on Wednesday and improved on his opening round score by 12 shots by the completion of 54 holes. With solid performances from all three players over the 54 holes, Aorangi placed 5th in the Teams Stableford.
