Links Shell Cove play host to Pennants, Cup and Juniors


For the first time the Golf Illawarra pennant finals will take place at the one course on Sunday.

The Links Shell Cove has been handed the honour of hosting finals for the Illawarra, B and C pennants, as well as the White Horse Cup and juniors.

Provided the rain doesn't wash out Sunday's play, another strong season of pennant competition will culminate on the greens.

"It has been another successful year," a Golf Illawarra spokesperson said.

"We have had more teams overall in all of the pennants, especially in the White Horse Cup.

"It was also good to see an increase to six teams this year because the juniors have been going down.

"Hopefully the rain will hold off on Sunday because trying to find a course to play all of them on would be difficult."

One of the key match-ups comes in the Illawarra Pennant final, with 2012 champions Wollongong going in as marginal favourites against Shoalhaven Heads.

In the B pennant, undefeated Kiama will consider themselves a red-hot chance to claim the title over Shoalhaven Heads.

Home club Shell Cove are represented in the pennant C, White Horse Cup and juniors and are sure to use their local knowledge to their advantage in their deciders.

The White Horse Cup and juniors are played in a handicap match play format, while the Illawarra and B pennants are played without the benefit of handicap.

Action will get underway at 7.30am.
