MIDWEEK PENNANT MATCHPLAY FINAL

From the Club….
The 2019 Midweek Matchplay Pennant Final was played on Friday at the Dunes between the two fantastic Mornington teams, the Reds and the Sea Eagles.  The two teams have both had sensational seasons brushing aside the other 22 teams to reach the final.  It was such a shame that one team had to lose as they are both winners in our eyes!

Breaking news just came through from The Dunes this afternoon that the Reds were victorious and won the Flag!  Congratulations to the Red team of James Whelan, Peter Treseder, John Shackleton, Trevor Morrison, Merv Williams, David Davidson, Dennis Pratt, Bill English and Andrew Graham.  Mornington is very proud of you all.  Commiserations to the defiant Sea Eagles who did so well in reaching the final, well done!

Report from Reds Captain Merv Williams below….
The Mornington Reds ventured to the Dunes for the final of the Men’s Midweek Matchplay against Mornington Sea Eagles.

The Mornington Reds played some inspiring golf winning 41/2 – 2 1/2.

  • Peter Treseder – won 6/4 against John Forster.
  • David Davidson – a tough battle all day against Bruce Morley. Match going down the 19th when the final result came through. Match halved.
  • Dennis Pratt – lost 5/4 against Ken Laird.

Bendigo Bank Referral Program – $35,000 paid to the Club so far!

BendigoBank_Logo1

Bendigo Bank have been fantastic supporters of the Mornington Golf Club over a number of years with their annual sponsorship, business banking support and more recently with sponsorship of a number of members golf events.  We have a really good relationship with them and our relationship has gone from strength to strength over the past two year since Club Member Gary Millen has accepted the role of Senior Branch Manager at the Bendigo Bank branches in Mornington and Frankston.  The Referral Scheme has provided some fantastic benefits to Mornington Golf Club and its Members with more than $35,000 having been paid to the Club as a result of members taking out loans with the Bendigo Bank. 

These extra funds received from the Bendigo Bank have paid for the wonderful new Bendigo Bank Outdoor Terrace that we are all enjoying.  Looking forward to the next project that will be funded by the members who are contributing to the Bendigo Bank referral scheme

The Bendigo Bank referral program works as follows….

If a member takes out a home loan, home equity loan, personal loan or business loan or has a new business overdraft or a credit card facility with Bendigo Bank the Club will receive a payment which will amount to an agreed % of the loan amount.   There will also be benefits available to members in the form of discount rates which will be negotiated at the time.

Eg. Home Loan of $500k x 0.20% will generate $1000 for the club.

Bendigo bank is also offering the Club a commission on the balance of all deposit accounts held at the Bendigo Bank by Club members so if the total balance of all members account combined is over $5,000,000 they will pay a rate of commission of 0.25% per annum to the Club.  This could equate to at least $12,500 cash being paid to the Club annually so if you are considering changing your bank or are in the market for a home, business or personal loan why not talk to  Gary Millen  at  the Bendigo Bank.  If you have a bank account with Bendigo Bank you must email Gary and let him know to include it in the balance of accounts held. 

If you have any questions regarding the Bendigo Bank Referral program or wish to discuss any Banking requirements please contact Gary Millen via email at Gary.Millen@bendigoadelaide.com.au or call him on his mobile – 0435 781 605
