While the stage is set for a thrilling final round of the 2023 Club Championships, a huge congratulations must first go to Carolyn Cripps on achieving a hole-in-one on the fifth hole at Lang Lang on Wednesday.

The Men’s A Grade Club Championship is very evenly poised with just two shots separating the top four contenders heading into the third and final round this Saturday.

The leaderboard is very close in a lot of divisions and a seeded draw has been drawn up for the final round for the top contenders.

Lang Lang encourages everyone to get down to the club on Saturday and show your support for our golfers, it is sure to be a great atmosphere.

There will be another couple of meat trays to raffle and presentations to all winners will be held on completion of the round.

We look forward to seeing everyone there and hopefully the weather gods will play nicely.
