Dennis Fox Cup

On Friday 10 May, the Club hosted the inaugural Dennis Fox Cup which saw the Early Birds take on The Breakfast Club in an event played in great spirit. The morning and afternoon golfers played together in an afternoon shotgun with a total of 120 players teeing off.

Players enjoyed a range of Vili’s Pies and an ice cold XXXX Gold before tee off with plenty of banter and fun. A gorgeous autumn day and pristine golf course awaited players and The Breakfast Club narrowly won, taking home the inaugural Dennis Fox Cup. It was fantastic to have Dennis Fox at the Club to present the trophy to the winners.

Special thanks to the Men’s Committee who came up with this new concept several months ago, the event was a great success.

Huntingdale Golf Club

Rising to fame in 1979 with the inaugural hosting of the Australian Masters, Huntingdale has emerged as one of the most recognisable golf courses not only in Australia, but in the world. Since 1979, Huntingdale has played host to some of the most famous names in world golf, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Seve Ballesteros, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo, Geoff Ogilvy and Tiger Woods. In 2008 Huntingdale celebrated the 30th consecutive year of hosting the Australian Masters and was justifiably recognised as “Home of the Australian Masters”.

Consistently rated as one of the best golf courses in Australia, Huntingdale greets players with superbly manicured fairways, strategic fairway bunkering and large undulating greens. This combination of features at Huntingdale ensures this course challenges the best professionals and the latest technology. The greens at Huntingdale are true and fast and are generally kept in “Masters” condition throughout the year. Players hitting wayward shots to the far side of the greens can anticipate long undulating putts. The final stretch of holes contains some of the toughest and finest finishing holes in the world.
