SCRIVENER EARNS EURO CARD WEST Australian Jason Scrivener has earned his 2016 European Tour card after six gruelling rounds of Qualifying School. The 26-year old added a closing round of 71 to rise into a share of seventh place and grab one of the 27 Tour cards available through the school on Spain’s PGA Cataluyna Resort course. After a slow start to the 2015 season, the 2007 Australian Junior Amateur champion made a solid run at retaining his card before Q-School including two top-20 finishes. Scrivener was the only Australian to grab a card, while Daniel Gaunt and Dimi Papadatos each missed full European Tour membership by a single stroke. Both players had heartbreaking finishes to their Q-School visit, with Gaunt bogeying two of his last three holes, while Papadatos made a triple bogey seven to close with a 74. They will get limited European Tour starts for the 2016 season, as well as Challenge Tour starts. MELBOURNE’S ‘SUPER CLUB’ MERGE A GROUNDBREAKING move by three of Melbourne’s best known golf clubs to establish a ‘super club’ could shine a light into the future of club golf around Australia. Huntingdale, Patterson River and The Sandhurst Club have advised that the clubs will enter into a Heads of Agreement to merge all three entities under the one Huntingdale Golf Club Group (HGCG) brand. The proposal is aimed at securing the long term future of each of the respective clubs and to create a financial environment it is believed will see the combined group become a significant force in Australian golf. It comes at a time when more than 50 percent of Victoria’s golf clubs are reported to be under financial stress, mainly due to declining memberships. Under the proposal, members of the combined group will have access to 63 holes of golf, outstanding clubhouses, plus other recreational offerings now demanded by a rapidly changing market.
