Blame it on the bogey: Allianz Blue Eagle’s golf gets competitive Much fun was had at the Allianz Blue Eagle Golf Tournament, which was held in mid-February in Western Australia and Victoria and early March in New South Wales. In the West, 44 players teed-off in warm and windy conditions at the Joondalup golf course. EBM Insurance’s Matt Terry and Damian Adams beat IC Frith’s Rick and Justin Purslowe by a single point in a nail-biting finish, with third place going to Cowden Insurance Brokers’ Matt Allen and Russell Hateley. Gallaghers’ Kim Edwards and Unity Insurance Brokers’ Craig Winzer won nearest the pin while Strathearn’s Daniel Waters and Cambridge Insurance Brokers Scott Carlisle were awarded the longest drive prize. In Victoria participants faced the challenging greens of Huntingdale with the course in immaculate condition following the PGA tournament the week before. It was another narrowly contested affair, with Ferguson Insurance Brokers’ Noel Boyd and Chris O’Connor beating McLardy McShane’s Don McLardy and Mike McShane by one point. The third place-getters, Austbrokers’ Tim Considine and Marc Wilson, were just pipped for second after a countback. Noel Boyd and Austbrokers’ Troy Mansell won nearest the pin and the longest drive (male) was claimed by Insurance House Group’s Jay Fereday. Allianz’s Kate Stebbings won the longest drive (female). The NSW Blue Eagle golf tournament teed off on a glorious day at Manly Golf Club with 52 in attendance. GSA’s Paul Hines and James Telford won by two points over Garaty Murnane’s Troy Garaty and Chris Murnane. Nearest the pin winners were Austbrokers’ Greg Bridge and Finn Foster’s Sheik Rahiman, while Austbrokers’ Russell Chegwyn and Brookvale Insurance’s Graham Turner won longest drive. The national final will be played in May in Sydney.
