21-1-2024: INTERNATIONAL CUP + STABLEFORD

The 2nd week of the new season is one of the most anticipated events for our members because it happens to be the staging of the International Cup. This event is so popular that even Johnny Mac makes a huge effort to show up for this yearly grudge match between members of international heritage and those of Australian heritage.
24 players rolled up to the picturesque Macquarie Links GC to do battle, meaning that there would be 12 matches contested using the matchplay format to decide the Cup Winners for 2024. Still smarting from losing the last 3 years in a row, the Aussie captain (Johnny Mac) decided to take charge of the event and even performed the blind draw to decide the opponents on the day which meant that there might be some huge differences in handicaps for the matches. This was seen as an act of desperation on the part of the Aussies but as usual, the Internationals were not fazed and agreed to the dodgy draw.
Battle commenced at 6:30am and the competition was as hot as the temperature which by the end of the round was nudging 38 degrees. When the dust settled, it was up to the Club Captain to tally the results and announce the 2024 winners.
Even with all the shenanigans of the Aussies in their quest for a token victory, the cool headed and much more talented Internationals once again proved to strong with a 7-5 victory.
Congratulations to the Internationals on their victory and to all the members in attendance for a great day of camaraderie and fun. Too bad for the Aussies who were last seen hopping to their cars with furry tails between their legs.
