It was a fine but cool day at the 2019 Riccarton Park Golf Complex Canterbury 4BBB Championship at Russley Golf Club. With no wind there was some good scoring but the challenging Russley layout still played tough for many players.
The men's championship was won by the Templeton pairing of Sam Purdon and Ryan Bellamy who combined for a seven under par 65. They beat the pairings of Nic Kay and Nick Franzmann, and Josh Roche and Reid Hilton by one shot. Roche and Hilton were hot early and were six under through eight holes, but could not add to their score in the remaining 12 holes, with Hilton missing an eight foot birdie putt on 18 to tie the championship. Fourth place, five further shots back were Kerry Branson and Forde Hanson, and defending champions Brett Turner and Steve Bell.
The women's championship was won by Maddie May and Jasmine Clancy with a fine 67. They beat Amy Weng and Anika Park by one shot.
The net results saw Michael McAuley and Owen Burgess win the men's Div 1 net, Estelle Lin and Alisia Ren the women's net, and Steve Weng and Leon Yee win the men's Div 2 net.
