Perfect weather conditions greeted players in the Inaugural Sydney FC Golf Day held at the Bonnie Doon Golf Club on Thursday 17th May. While individuals frantically practised their putting, chipping and driving there was feeling that some fun filled competition was in store as tee off drew closer.
The field included Sydney FC players Terry McFlynn, Nick Carle, Rhyan Grant, Mitch Mallia, Dimitri Petratos and Football Director Gary Cole. Entrants from Excite Digital Media, Caltex, Kwik Kopy, Hyundai, Lenovo and Matrium were joined by newly appointed Head Coach, Ian Crook making his first official appearance for the Club.
Former US PGA tour professional Paul Gow joined one of the groups from Hyundai, but even his well honed skills were not enough to propel them into first spot.
Overall winners of the day were David Balafas, Indy Khabra, Terry Vecchio and Sydney FC Player Rhyan Grant (Excite Digital Media) and Runners up were Alex Clarke, Sunny Gill, Andrew Christopher and Sydney FC Head Coach Ian Crook (Lenovo).
Terry Vecchio-s massive drive on the 9th hole took out the longest drive of the day and the nearest the pin competition on the 15th hole was won by David Balafas with his tee shot being put within 125cm of the pin.
The day wrapped up with Luke Doherty from Sky News hosting the post golf function as guests enjoyed a 3 course meal at the Bonnie Doon club house.
