BELIEVE it or not summer time is upon us at Curlewis!
Hopefully some better weather will be able to match the fantastic condition of our course at the moment. With school holidays on the cusp of starting it is great to see our fantastic junior programs and academies developing.
We are excited to see the continued development of our junior players and look forward to assisting them with their games in the future. It was great to see promising junior Noah Guida reign supreme in becoming our C grade champion. It was also a great championship for talented left hander Matt McFarlane who was crowned junior champion as well A grade nett champion. Young Ben Henkel also solidified his place as one of the Geelong regions best young players by winning our club championship over seasoned veteran Todd Morgan. We look forward to watching Ben closely as he pursues a future in the game.
