Golf Croquet SA Bronze Medal
The format was Best of Three games to make up a match. This was new to all the players, but they quickly caught on and handled it well.
After one days play and 2 matches it was remarkably close between Colin Broom and Jan Sala of Holdfast Bay, with only one hoop separating them.
Day two saw Colin in the lead with 3 match wins and Sara Kendrick now closely chasing him after the withdrawal of one of the players.
The final day was great, both matches in play went to the third game. Colin Broom maintained his lead to be the SA GC Bronze Medalist for 2021 and Sara Kendrick of Aldinga Bay the runner -up. Every player won at least one match, showing how close the competition was.
Thanks to Brighton CC for managing the event and providing referees.
