Oliver Barlass was one of the stars of the Gowrie Cup 2019! Oliver played his round of golf with 21 strokes and won the Best Net Juniors prize of the day!! And Oliver also secured the Nearest to the Pin and the Birdie Chance prizes too!! 3 prizes for Oliver Barlass, you’re on top of the world kid! 😀
We have to say we had 3 junior players on the Gowrie Cup 2019, Oliver and his brother Joshua Barlass, and Oliver Bryant, and all 3 played on a very good level. Joshua didn’t get to the prize but finished his round with the same 21 strokes as his brother, and Oliver Bryant playing with handicap 13 delivered 26 strokes on his round. Well done boys, and congratulations once again to Oliver Barlass for your prizes!!

By the end of the day the Gowrie Cup 2019 was another great Edition and a great success!! Everybody loved it! Many of our property Members and Balaia friends came by and enjoyed a very satisfying afternoon of tournament and friendship!! We wish to contratulate Robert Nicholas as the big Winner of the 18th Edition of the Gowrie Cup and congratulate all the other prize winners of the tournament too, that was Oliver, Alain, Peter, Gilbert and Chris!! Thank you to Doris, Rosanne and Hugh for carrying on with the Gowrie Cup legacy! Our team at Balaia Golf is very proud to welcome you every year! See you all next year for the Gowrie Cup 2020!!
