2021 Pennant, Cleek & Hickory Results
Golf Australia SA Ladies A3 Pennant Finals - Monday July 5
The A3 Pennant team was victorious on Monday at Flagstaff Hill defeating Blackwood 3-2. It was a sensational win with our number 1 player, Se Young, winning her match on the 17th hole to secure the match. It is the second time that North Adelaide has had their name engraved on the trophy which started back in 1955. The previous team won in 1996.
All team members put in a valiant effort on Monday and although a couple of the team did not play the final their efforts throughout the season were invaluable. Also a big thank you to our manager who turned up in very cold conditions every week with goodies to share and a smile. Caddies…you were awesome and integral in assisting with keeping the players calm and offering advice along the way. Finally to the supporters who came out to follow and support the team…a big thank you.
Sarah Russell - A3 Pennant Captain

Pennant A3 : (Win 5-0)
It was an awesome win in the Semi Final against West Lakes at NAGC. Everyone dug in and was victorious to the end. The team proudly look forward to play in the finals.
Cleek 1: (Lost 1-4)
NAGC’s Cleek 1 team played in the semi-final at Royal Adelaide Golf Course against the undefeated top team, Mt Osmond. Mt Osmond won, but not without a fight from us! We were very competitive, all fighting to the end, with Susan Bywaters having to go to the 1st tee again to get a result! Threetip Wongsala was square on the 17th, but unfortunately got into bunker trouble on the 18th. Di Cocks was two down on the 17th. All so close! Dee Bennett and Maureen Thomson, weren’t able to finish their ‘close’ matches on 17th hole because a result had already been reached!
A big thank you to our 4 caddies who helped and supported us on the day….. Peter Sahb, Laifong, Threetip’s sister-in-law, Chris Larsen and Deet Carmody, and they had a lovely walk in the beautiful sunshine! We must congratulate Mt Osmond for winning and wish them all the best in next week’s final against Royal Adelaide, at Flagstaff Hill Golf Course.
Thank you to all of our Cleek 1 players and reserves throughout this season. What a terrific team effort to get to the semi finals.

Pennant : (Win 3.5-1.5)
We are thrilled to say that our team beat West Lakes. This keeps us in the number 1 position with only 1 match left to play before the semi finals. There were some excellent efforts which include Carolyn Coleman’s comeback from 3 down to square the match, Mi Park’s excellent effort from being 5 down to lose 2/1, Se Young’s comeback from 3 down to win 2 up, Diane Biebrick’s continued success with a 5/3 win and Young Mi’s win of 4/2. Well done team….as always, we are very proud of all your efforts.
Cleek 1: (Lost 3.5-1.5)
Cleek 1 team played against a very strong team, Mt Osmond at Thaxted Park in very windy condition. The team tried very hard but still could not get hold of a win. Dianne Cocks, our Cleek captain came in with a 2 up win. The gallery witnessed her superb 3 meters putt on Hole 18 in the comfort of the restaurant, shielded from the frosty wind . Threetip Wongsala fought very hard and was awarded with a square. Well done ladies.
Hickory : (Square 2.5-2.5)
Hannah Taylor and Susan Lewis came in with a win and Judy Giersch squared the match. Great effort.

Pennant : (Win 3 - 2)
Yesterday Pennant team played The Grange at Blackwood. Going into the match The Grange were in first position and we were in second. Di Biebrick played an awesome game of golf and won her match 6/4. Mi Park continued on her undefeated run with a 3/1 win. Se Young and Young Mi took it down to the wire. They both played through to the 18th hole with Se Young succeeding in winning her match. That gave us a score of 3/2 and put us in first position on the ladder. It was a fabulous, but very cold day and we are extremely proud of the team and how they pulled together to secure this win. With only two matches left to play before the Semi finals, we are placed in a good position…the best that we can ever remember!
Cleek 1: (Lost 2-3)

Ladies GA Pennant (A3) Match Report - Monday, 10th May 2021
We played in the most horrendous weather we have seen for a while. It was blowing a gale at Glenelg and combined with rain it was 'delightful' to say the least. The team put up a good effort but unfortunately we lost
to a better Mt Osmond team 1-4.
Mi Park was the sole winner although several of the matches were very close.

North Adelaide hosted the Cleek 1 Pennant match in wet, cold and windy condition. We played against West Lakes, a strong team, but North Adelaide team dug their heels in and came in with a 3-2 win. Well done to all.
A bowl of delicious minestrone soup was served for lunch to our guest players at the club room ..... where we lack in presentable toilet facilities on and off the course we made up with our hospitality.......
A big thank you to Myranwy Kaines as the starter and Dave Harrington, the referee.
