SHIPPING Australia’s Victoria annual golf challenge for the Phil Kelly OAM Trophy saw a field of 16 teams get around the Waterford Valley Golf course on a day offering spectacular autumn conditions.
The assembly of the industry’s finest competitors battling it out eventually saw team ANCRA Australia led by Laurens de Jonge take first place closely followed by Priority Cargo’s A-team.
SAL Victoria secretary Charles Masters said despite concern the stevedoring sector would dominate, this proved “no lay down misere”.
“Grateful thanks go to Svitzer for their gold sponsorship of the event and Port of Melbourne for providing quality golf bags to the first prize winners,” Mr Masters said.
“We additionally like to acknowledge the 22 silver sponsors who all contributed into making this an outstanding event and to Waterford Valley management who raised the catering standard.”
The course has been re-booked for Wednesday 3 April 2019.
